That battery-powered Porsche is brutally fast.
The McLaren 720S has been a favourite topic of drag races as a result of it not often loses. It does so a number of occasions nevertheless it’s both it had a foul begin or it was towards a modified 1,000-horsepower model of it. Heck, it even gained towards two Lamborghinis and one Ferrari in a European drag race. And who would overlook its win towards a Bugatti Chiron and two Ferraris? With its observe file, or ought to I say “drag race” file, the 720S is a pressure to be reckoned with in relation to straight-line races.
This time, nonetheless, the British supercar is dealing with a moderately odd opponent: a modified Porsche that doesn’t use gas. In brief, an all-electric Porsche that isn’t a Taycan.
On this episode of the DragTimes, the 720S misplaced to a non-Taycan all-electric Porsche. And it wasn’t only a loss – the gap between the 2 vehicles was large. Earlier than you begin watching the video above, let’s have a little bit story of the tape to match the numbers of each vehicles.

Lowell Simmons right here –
I had a good time Sunday at Road Automobile Drags at Palm Seashore Worldwide Raceway. There have been many Teslas there even with their very own generator truck with 2 Tesla tremendous costs on board. I used to be capable of make 5 runs in Black Pearl which is normally not possible at PBIR. I went all day undefeated. I should have crushed over 1 million value of supercars in my outdated 944.
My first victory was towards a M5 BMW with turbo upgrades, then a Lamborghini, subsequent was my closest race towards a professional charged late mannequin Corvette. He ran a 9.73 towards my 9.70. My final 2 races have been towards a Mercedes AMG BI Turbo which I blew away with a 9.50. Lastly Brooks was establishing a race for me towards a brand new Demon. Sadly the Demon was already within the trailer however that race is to be executed on a future date. Brooks mentioned come on towards his 9.90 Mclaren. That was my final race of the day posting a 9.41 at 143 mph.
Look ahead to this in a future Drag Instances video. We had each vehicles arrange with cameras. Brooks mentioned I stole the present for your complete Drag occasions day. The 9.41 can be a brand new MC/three ED file. I’m now not a highschool trainer, I now educate at Sheridan Technical Faculty in Hollywood Florida. The college system allowed me to switch the two warp 11 motors which have been bought with college board monies. Apart from that the Black Pearl is mine.
Particular because of John Wayland who a number of years in the past sponsored one in every of my z2k’s and Shawn Lawless who loaned me the opposite z2k after mine blew a dc-dc converter and must be repaired. The Lonestar Battery Pack I constructed with made all of it attainable. I do have the 1500 hp battery pack I constructed for Don Garlits setting in my store. Sometime I’ll construct one to equal that and BP can be an eight.90 avenue authorized electrical automobile.
