Impressive Vid: Road and Track Launches the 991 Turbo S over 50 times!!!

Some of you may have seen this already but I had to post it here. Its almost kind of funny when the announcer tries to replicate the sounds before the car launches. I think it was actually launched 61 times in a row; rather impressive to say the least.

I love my S for this truly usable feature but I had it on my 991 C4S with the same PDK system. One thing I recommend is no one buy this test mule when Porsche runs it thru the auction. Wait, its ok to since its a Porsche

And Ill back up that claim- the car really launches that correctly. Its the way launch control should be. It should not take 7 steps and an act of god to make it occur.

That launch seems so effortless, let alone built to last allowing so many in a row.

I've just tried a quick getaway in the M5 and got the throttle moderation wrong which resulted in a 'kangaroo' (doh!) - haven't done one of those since cold start driving in the E46.

I'm sure you've had no such embarrassing moments in the TT S! That car just looks like so much fun.

Knock on wood but yes oil only... oh I did have a turbo issue on the 2007 since the Bosch electronics went out on the VTG but that was a first run car with the Variable Geometry and they fixed it of course even with a tune LOL on the car.

It truly is sir... just fun and grins. Some will say "i need to to be able to enjoy the car and be challenged" and I call BS LOL.

It can keep going, and Porsche claims it will not break. A buddy of mine was in Germany at a test track, and they launched a 991 well over 100 times with no issues time and time again.

I think that's the best $200k one can ever spend on buying a car. Just AMAZING.

I can understand those who may want a challenge, however, I'm definitely in the camp of wanting a performance car that you can just drive how you want (with reason) and not worry about breaking it (again within reason).

These posts are a bad influence - the dark side is indeed strong

IMHO, what's really great is that you don't need to spend $200K (or equivalent) to achieve this, as Vic says above he had it on his PDK equipped C4S - obviously less performance, but I can imagine still fun when launching.

This is why historically Porsche has ruled the track. Durability. While other manufacturers cars sit in the paddock/shop/limp mode, P cars are lapping relentlessly.

Here's to hoping the 991 GT3 continues the tradition (after having its engine replaced)

Now that's just silly. A 997.2 Turbo S will spank an M5. A 991 Non S will spank an M5.

If there is ANY doubt of this maybe SOOOMA and I can meet and see. NC is not far from GA. I will run with my top down and I promise never to leave 5th gear-lol!
