    • Beast right out of the box: Bone stock 997.2 Turbo S turns a 10.6@129.8 1/4 mile - New quickest stock 997 Turbo record?

      Wow. Quite simply, wow. Talk about a car that just right out of the box impresses. Close to mid 10's and 130 in a stock car, incredible. The 997.2 Turbo S simply is a epic achievement. The launch control and PDK transmission clearly help as a 1.58 60 foot is mind boggling for a stock car on street rubber. The launch control system works and works very damn well. The result using it is a 10.672@129.80 for what is a new stock 997 Turbo 1/4 mile record.

      A tune and some drag rubber and 9's are within reach. GIAC already showed that was possible with a 9.8@135 run in a bolt on 997.2 Turbo S. The PDK transmission simply makes the most of the horsepower and launch. With some upgraded turbos these cars are going to be running absolutely insane 1/4 mile times.

      Congrats to owner here. Now get a tune and experience that rush all over again.

        No turbo/turbo S runs much faster. High 120 traps and in the 10s.

        This isn't just a Carrera, assuming an S

        Maybe I was looking in the wrong lane? It's exactly Mid 10's and a high 120 trap lol. Not to mention the Turbos are not out yet and he said 2013 997.2.

        Help, we don't know which is which. Left lane seems like 991 c2s PDK and right lane is 997.2 Turbo S times. I am guessing right lane and turbo s. 25-26 mph in the back half is a lot for an N/A factory stock car.

        LMAO, I'm with everybody else. The left lane can be a Carrera S. The right lane can be a turbo/ turbo s. Which time are we looking at? @LostMarine

        PDK FTW -- The 997.2 engine might not be big HP friendly like the .1, but damn they're fast as $#@! with the power they're producing.

        Hey guys. So I just got back from the drag strip tonight and I am still grinning ear to ear. This is the first time ever I have taken the 997.2 Turbo S out to the drag strip. Coming up to the tree on my first run I didn't know what to expect. This is also my first time ever using launch control with the PDK system. I read that you put sport plus on, traction control off, hold your foot on the brake and gas, its rev till about 4500-5000 and then let off the brake and it shoots you off like a rocket. It was the quite the experience. When I initially launched the first time, I thought that you had to shift using the paddle shifters yourself and didn't realize till the next run that the car can shift for itself. Long story short i pull up to the booth where they hand you the slip and anxiously i take it and look at it. I see two times, 11.164 and 10.672. I couldn't believe it at first and thought they gave me the wrong slip. As I am looping around I was thinking back to the race. I raced a all motor mustang on radials and he got the initial jump but i reeled him pretty hard so I obviously had the quicker time. Still startled I see the mustang I raced and pull up to him to see if in fact that was the slip from our race. I ask and sure enough he replies, "That was one hell of race, 10.6 for stock car is out of the world". At that point i knew it was true. The Porsche 997.2 Turbo S is hands down one of the sickest and one of my most favorite cars i have ever driven and for a completely bone stock car to run a 10.672 @129.80 mph, it has surpassed my level of expectation. From what i recall the last quickest time was done my Road and Track in which they ran a 10.7 @ 128 mph if I am not mistaken. Anyways I thought I would share with you guys because this has made my weekend. Click here to enlarge

        I was just in my buddy Dave's 2012 Turbo S with a PDK tranny. He's got a couple boltons so far and GIAC tuning. I drove it last night and tried out its launch control, unnnnbelievable traction off the line. The car has so much instant pickup with that 3.8L and its VTG turbos its insane. I'd take this any day over a GTR. He's a hp junkie and if he doesn't end up holding multiple records in the months to come I'd be very surprised.
