A few months ago, the folks over at Autocar pitted an Audi R8 V10 against a Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid in a drag race. At the end of the quarter-mile, the Panamera absolutely crushed the Audi. In this video, the Panamera is back again to take on a new challenger: the 911 Turbo S. Having more power than the R8, it’s interesting to find out if the Panamera can win again.

When it comes to all-out acceleration, the 911 Turbo S is hard to beat with its 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six that puts out 580 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque. It certainly doesn’t pack the punch of the Panamera. With its 4.0-liter twin-turbocharged V8 and electric motor, the super sedan makes 680 hp and 626 lb-ft of torque. The biggest factor is the weight difference between the two. The Panamera sits at a hefty 5,315 pounds while the 911 only weighs 3,515 lbs. It’s too close to call just by looking at the numbers.
