Now for the drum roll

The car laid down 1135RWHP on the local dyno.
That number is NOT a typo. He runs the 1/4 in the 8s on street tires.
Google Gary White and you'll get your proof.

A 930 can't touch that, no way no how, for 10 times the money. If you're looking for a low dollar high HP car then buy a Supra.

Ask Juan, he'll fill you in on the shortcomings of drag racing a 911 competitively.
I know that motor can make some serious power.... I wasn't doubting that ... ( I've heard 1000 HP ) but yeah, the car is seriously over engineered. I was just curious about the 930 since I am getting one .... just to know what the potential is. I would be plenty happy with 400 - 500 on the street .... I'm not out to race anyone or prove anything, but just to entertain myself more than anything
