    How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    I am curious to know what the fastest other members have driven in there 911 on public roads.

    I am sure you rennteamers in Germany have gone a lot faster than we have stateside. I have driven on the autobahn before and have only been able to go up to 140 mph in a rental going downhill.

    In no way am I promoting reckless driving, however last night at 2:00 am I couldn't resist on open 10 lane stretch of interstate.

    My personal best 164mph on the digital speedo.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    996 Carrera 4S tiptronic , 301 km/h on digital speedo.

    Istanbul to Ankara autobahn

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    997 GT 3
    336 km/h
    between Leipzig and Magdeburg A14 - a had no more profile left on my rear tyres (driving home after the porsche sports driver school)

    lucky you're still alive and well!

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    only 135 mph.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    176 mph Ventura to Santa Barbara for the Saturday AM PCA breakfast meeting

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    Of course I keed, I keed

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    I bet I take the low at 125 mph. On that occasion, I was lucky enough to begin braking as an unmarked state police car was doing a u-turn on the interstate about 1/2 mile ahead of me. Good thing he didn't have his moving radar/laser turned on at the time, otherwise he might have gotten me.

    Nothing to be sad about, on my way back from Georgia one night I hit 137 on the digital. It's the fasted I've been in the 911. We should start a 130mph club Anyways, its not the fastest I've ever gone in a car

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    I'm embarrassed to admit : only 136mph at 1am on the M40 motorway on the way home from the Lake District recently.

    I can't wait till I can go to Germany again where I will legally go as fast as the car will go...I'm desperate to find out what my top speed really is ....might make my fuel consumption figures suffer a bit!

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    Something else I would mention. I love driving at 82mph because at that speed, I know that there is still another 100mph left in reserve

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?


    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    145-150 and then I realized how f'ing stupid it is on roadways (deer, debris, deflation); even on the Autobahn. I don't go over 135 anymore; 135 max is plenty for passing.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    168mph in the C4 and 185mph in my old supercharged m3

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    997S: 305km/h (digital speedo and needle displayed the same value)
    993: 284km/h (digital speedo) the needle showed more than 300km/h at the same time (the analog speedo ends at 300km/h). Obviously, the old 993 does not use programmable stepper motors for the needle to match the two displayed speeds.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    282km/h (176mph). But that's in my 914... Did 273km/h (170mph) in a C4 in New York a few years ago

    302 km/h (189 mph) in my dad's 3.0 911 RSR. With Daytona gears it would technically go 205mph and while I don't doubt it could I never did.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    140 in the CA desert, then my girlfriend made me slow down. Felt like the car was just getting going. I was sad.

    Dump the GF and try again.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    135 probably in the same desert.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    180mph - M4 over the Severn Bridge leaving Wales.

    180mph - near Witney, Oxford - my wife looked at the speedo and bollocked me and I've not gone anywhere near as fast since.

    Both times the car felt like there was still more speed to give.

    Anything over 160mph on UK roads with the bumps and the car is too twitchy to be comfortable to be honest.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    285 km/h Taiwan

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    Adding all these numbers up we contributors to this thread owe about us$500K in fines and legal fees, 4 years in jail, and 4000 hours community service.


    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    306 Kph (GPS) Autobahn

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    I'm never going to tell.
    This is a dangerous thread.
    Let's just say there are some long, straight, empty, perfectly flat, streches of Kansas Highway.
    I can only say that I do not doubt Porsches top speed claims, frequently.

    Cheers,

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    285 Km/h in Istanbul/ Turkey!

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    a buck fifty three with my dad early one morning in north georgia...the fastest I've ever been!!!!

    MMD's right, with all the deer, road debris, etc.. probably not the brightest thing to do.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    around 280km/h Vancouver BC Canada

    feel very dangerous with the top up

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    145mph on the A14 between Cambridge and Bury St Edmonds (when I lived in the UK last year) and kept it at a good 110-130 for about 2 hours in the middle of the desert northeast of Reno, NV. A whole lotta nothing out there.

    I was capped at around 110pmh when I drove on the Autobahns in germany since i was still in the break in period. I wish we had roads like that in the US...this car is meant to be driven on them. Car felt great at 130-140...plenty of room to go just wouldn't want to do that with a lot of traffic.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    320 km/h on digital speedo on the A44 autobahn on a clear and bright full moon night with no traffic.

    Re: How fast have you gotten your 911 to go?

    so I suppose everyone kind of has a "police officer" sitting next to him lol
