Have you ever wanted to know how a fast an F1 car is? Or, better yet, how a stock 911 would do in a race with an F1 car. This video, while quite old, is still very amusing and entertaining. It pits an early to mid 90’s Carrera versus a Peugot306 S16 versus a McLaren F1 car (all driven by professional F1 drivers).
Could the Porsche Possibly Win?
The video is well narrated and speaks for itself. Take a look.
Shouldn’t the Porsche have beat the Peugeot?
What I don’t understand is how does the 2.0 liter Peugeot stay ahead of the Porsche? I know it’s only a single 5 kilometer lap, but you would think the difference in top end and cornering capabilities would more than make up for the significant 20 second head start given to the Peugeot.
In my opinion, the best part of the entire video is the F1 McLaren as it passes both the Porsche and the Peugeot at the very end. Watch it as it comes from behind the Porsche and the speed at which it overtakes both cars.
