I did 159 mph (GPS reading) in my 930 several years ago -- the speedo was reading nearly 170 mph. It was a white-knuckle event as the needle climbs very slowly above 150 mph! I don't think I'd try it again.

In sharp contrast, I did 170+ mph in a Panamera S over the summer on the Autobahn. It was like a Sunday drive, complete with passengers in the car!

Modern technology (and aerodynamics) make all the difference.
