That Autothority Porsche is amazing!
Sounds sweet too not to mention.

They should've just thrown in a FRIGGIN Supra, haha. I know they have pretty stock looking (bodykit wise) Supra's that can pull 1/4 mile in 9-10secs!
Take that you VIPER you!

9 sec Supra? It wouldn't compete. This test isn't only straight line acceleration... it's handling too. The Venom800 Twin Turbo does a 10sec pass in the quarter, but lost to a weaker Porsche and Vette because of it's size, weight and lousy brakes. Those Supras have drag setup suspension and no brakes.... and weigh too much aswell.

My bad...I only took a glimpse in terms of speed, forgot there was such thing as handling in supercars

There is THE most nuts car on the planet. John Coletti (HOORAY FOR ITALIANS ! ! ! ), who is the head engineer and director of Ford's SVT decided he needed a real man's car. He took the 2nd last gen Mustang, and put a 10L Boss engine in it. He completely modified everything inside and outside the block.
Is that the one that I saw in Car & Driver Magazine years ago that listed the miles per gallon as?---> MPG---Don't ask!

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.
