Those Supras have drag setup suspension and no brakes.... and weigh too much aswell.
According to that magazine, the Henessy 800 only did 12.4 in the quarter, the Porsche did 11.8.
but your point is still valid, the porsche did better in the road course, but it also did better in every other category, so its not really a "weaker" porsche now is it?
Also the porsche was the only car to get 5 stars in the drivability catagory.
