Porsche 911 Turbo S (991): Driving impressions and launch control acceleration 0-280 km/h of a 911 Turbo S Prototype during a test run in extremely hot, humid and high conditions in South Africa.

 
Thanks for posting, almost 8 secs 0-160 kmh must have been very hot/high??

The old one is about 6.7secs for the same run..
 
The Turbo biggest nemesis is the heat. I'm not surprised at all if under extreme hot condition it won't be able to accelerate as fast as say in cooler weather condition. If one lives in the the equatorial belt or hot climate country. I wonder if the Turbo would be the ideal car under such conditions. Perhaps an NA 991 would be a better bet like say a GT3. I maybe wrong on this so any inputs & opinions are greatly welcome. Cheers mate!
