    • Stock Porsche 991.1 and 991.2 Turbo S take on a Huracan LP610-4 and LP580-2 from a roll

      These videos from GTBoard showing roll races can be a bit misleading at times. What you have here are all said to be stock cars. The first two races feature a Porsche 991.1 Turbo S and a Lamborghini Huracan LP610-4 which means this is the all wheel drive version.


      The Huracan is slightly lighter than the Porsche 991.1 Turbo S but it obviously has a very different powerplant with a 5.2 liter naturally aspirated V10.

      The first two runs have the Huracan demolishing the Porsche 991.1 Turbo S. Frankly, the Turbo looks to be in the wrong gear or the Huracan gets a massive jump.

      This is where things gets misleading as next up is a rear wheel drive Huracan LP580-2 which is lighter and should be more efficient from a roll compared to the all wheel drive version. Yet, the Porsche 991.2 Turbo S makes easy work of it.

      So is the Porsche 991.2 Turbo S just much, much faster than the 991.1 Turbo S version? No. The 991.2 is stronger but not to the level displayed in this video.

      There is a final run between the LP610-4 and the Porsche 991.2 Turbo S. The Huracan gets a noticeable jump but hits the limiter on a shift. The 991.2 Turbo S eventually pulls past.

      For context the two Huracans should run as should the two 911 Turbos but this video goes to show how starting speed, gearing, shifting, and reaction time can really skew a result.
