Also, it could be that the Porsche has a "dyno detection mode" in the ECU, limiting power on a dyno.

There's just no way the fattest car, with the least HP, would be fastest in accelerating from 100 to 200km/h.
The new Audi S8 which is also heavy can also do 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds.

It's a simple thing called All Wheel Drive.

The Porsche, Audi S8, and Nissan GT-R all have All Wheel Drive. With power to all 4 wheels is the reason why they all launch so fast. (the GTR can do 0-60mph in 2.7 seconds)

Power isn't always everything.
