We've been witness to how insanely fast and quick the new Porsche 911 Turbo S is since its debut. Countless times, the top-spec 911 has beaten nameplates in various drag races, so we have high expectations whenever it rolls down at a starting line.
Does a stock Porsche 911 Turbo S have enough oomph to beat a tuned Nissan GT-R and an electric rallycross racer? We'll find out in this straight-line contest, courtesy of carwow. These cars don't have anything in common except that they're insanely quick, but which one will win in a drag race?

But first, let's look at the numbers. The Nissan GT-R here has been tuned and given forged internals, which allows its twin-turbo V6 to put out 1,100 bhp and 937 lb-ft of torque. It also has a built six-speed automatic gearbox that sends the power to all four corners.
Meanwhile, the EV is a Xite Racing Nitro electric Rallycross car. It's powered by four electric motors, one on each wheel, with a total output of 820 bhp and 664 lb-ft of pull. Weirdly enough, it has a three-speed gearbox on board.
Of course, the 911 Turbo S comes with a stock twin-turbo 3.8-litre flat-six that makes 650 bhp and 627 lb-ft of torque, also sent to all four wheels. It's the least powerful of the three cars in contention but as we know, it has worked miracles before despite the disadvantage.
Interestingly, the EV Rallycross racer is the lightest of the bunch, but it's also the most expensive given its nature as a motorsports contender.
