    I own both a 911 C2S (997) and a Shelby GT350. Love both cars for different reasons, but honestly love my GT350 a bit more. I'm always interested whenever someone pits the Shelby against a Porsche. In this case it's a 911 C4S (991). I'm not surprised by the result.

    4555 pounds??? I don't think so. Be nice if he got the numbers correct

    EDIT: Interesting, but I expected the Shelby to pull more on him. Not a lot, but more than the small amount shown. Could not tell if they really got an even start or if one got a jump on the other.

    I love it when people read the GVWR and take that as the actual car's weight.

    lol

    It is the actual cars weight, when it's fully loaded!

    Seems like one gear lower would have been the gear to start out in. The 350 bogged at the start.

    not surprised ... the ‘4.3’ to 60 mph is deceiving
