    • PP-Performance Stage 2 tuned F13 M6 S63TU embarrasses a PDK 997.2 Turbo - Another suspect tuned M6 video?

      These PP-Performance tuned M6 videos are floating around and they make you scratch your head a bit. The last time we saw a PP-Performance tuned M6 it annihilated an LP560 Gallardo to the point the video was suspect. Well, same thing here with a stock 997.2 Turbo getting absolutely destroyed at the hands of this PP-P tuned M6. Is this a real race or a video more for marketing purposes? The horsepower disparity is absurdly large.


      Consider for a moment that a stock PDK 997.2 turbo runs door to door from a roll with a Ferrari 458 Italia. Both cars are just shy of being 130 mile per hour trap speed vehicles. The M6 stock hits 123 mile per hour traps according to recent tests. Stock for stock, the 997.2 PDK turbo is quicker and faster than the new F13 M6.

      So this video shows a tuned M6 instantly putting bus lengths on a 997.2 Turbo PDK just like it did to the LP560 Gallardo. That would require a HUGE power disparity. Is the PP-Performance tune getting the M6 to the 130 trap speed range? Sure, gaining around 70 wheel necessary to hit that area seems realistic. But that would make the race close with the M6 edging up top, not the instant one sided affair it is portrayed as.

      We need more data but dynographs and trap speeds from the USA will shed more light. Roll on race videos like this can be quite misleading especially without supplemental hard data. The M6 looks like it gets a huge jump to begin with on the first run and the second run is mis-timed on the honks. Simply take it with a grain of salt and M6 owners don't expect to go around annihilating Porsche 911 Turbos.

        I cant fathom the video but if its true then DAMN!!! Russkies are known for experts in decepcion, I remember many times in my early days in the Navy back in the 80's they had ships ALL over and Russian Spy Planes flying over us and the fleet, they seemd to not master at sea refueling, the US NAVY is the SOLE expert on this in the world , they would rather anchor out and save fuel and so on, we caught them sleeping once of the coast of lybia, all radars were off and crept on them on the break of dawn man they seemed pissed, and usual we gave them the middle finger and MOONED them,jajaja those were the good ol days, after mid 80's we never ran into their fleets for some reason and that was the USSR was dismantled!!!

        The best one I saw was a CIA film showing the Russians towing their tanks to a "battlefield" for war games... painting the grass and using artificial heaters under the tanks to show up on heat seeking satellite imagery... all so we would think their army was potent... that was back in the mid 1980s
