Evo takes a 911 Turbo and a Coke from 0-100 – Click above to watch video

When the Porsche 997 Turbo first came out and it was discovered that you could get from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds in the Tiptronic automatic transmission (which was quicker than the manual gearbox), that was incredible enough. In the updated 997 Turbo with PDK, however, you can apparently get to 100 mph in less than eight seconds with just three fingers on the wheel and a bottle of Coke at your lips.

Things coming out of Stuttgart are no longer incredible, they're outrageous. Follow the jump to watch Chris Harris do a bit of drinking and driving.

      Nice stunt.

      what was that a jetliner taking off!

      I can beat him any day of the week when it comes to belching. Hell... even though i''d be like1/2 mile behind, my belch would be heard louder that his on his in car camera. I'm just saying.

        now how to turn this information into money ;)

      Man these guys are really running out of things to do....

      Sweet. You can see he's doing about 1G off the line because the cola is at about 45 degrees.

      Awesome how his eyes "bugged" open when he launched that beast!

      Next episode: 100mph in GT-R while drinking and taking over 911.

        i'm glad to hear somewhere Porsche actually spanks GT-R, like i hinted before i don't like the car (mainly because of how it looks, stupid reason, i know :)
        still, i think the ball is on the Porsche-side, and i hope they will return it

        And then breaking down on your second try. Any person with an IQ of at least 60 can build a car to go fast, it's building one that can go fast and do it again without having the transmission blow up. "This car can do 0-60 faster then a 911, but only if you shut off the traction control.... and the limiters for the engine... and the transmission.... and don't mind destroying your drive-chain.... which won't be covered under warranty despite the fact that we designed the car that way."

        Nice story, I hope it helps Porsche to look better in your eyes. Not in mine, and I rather dislike GT-R.
        I would like Porsche to beat a car that is 2 times cheaper at least somewhere. Yet in all the comparos I've seen so far GT-R beats Porsche. :(
        And even if you break the transmission (*cough*cough*) you can buy five new and still stay under price of the Porsche.

        @hozer: If you don't have flexing seats, good luck on replacing halved buckets.

        Marc-o is correct, the GT-R transmission failure is an internet straw man. Continuing to cite it undermines your point valid or not.

        Nissan has resolved the issue that was largely the result of owners abusing the transmission*. A 4,500 RPM clutch dump on a 4,000 pound car pushing over 400 torque to near R-Comp tires is a level of strain any transmission would fail under. By dropping the RPM to 3,000 (an over 20% decrease in torque multiplication) the issue has gone away and the car actually accelerates faster now**.

        All that said the 997 Porsche is faster than the GT-R in a straight line***. The GT-R is not designed as a drag race car, it's designed as a corner momentum car which is why it repeatedly beats the Porsche in road course tests like the Nurburgring where maintaining velocity through a turn is more important than hard acceleration/deceleration where power to weight ratio is a larger factor.

        *The main failures people point to where either owners of heavily modified cars or the initial case of an owner that was observed doing repeated AWD doughnuts the previous night on Bullrun.

        ** Edmunds Inside line test

        *** Even 2009 997 Turbos puts down Qtr Mile trap speeds showing they are faster, though the GT-R typically takes them off the launch due to a more sophisticated AWD system.

        @ camhabib

        Oh give me a BREAK about the GT-R transmission BS already ! It was an early production problem (such things happen on every all new car), it's been completely FIXED, and repeating this crap as if it is still an issue and the GT-R is fragile and faulty just accomplishes one thing: showing ignorance. Give it a rest.

      I bought my 911 to drive, not to have it drive for me. I love shifting, it's so much fun. Why give that up?
