    Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT coupe

    OK guys this is serious !! im going against a bentley GT coupe with 550 HP AND 4WD.. kinda worrying especially that
    it will be from standing still..

    what is the optimal (standing still) release rpm for the carrera? im guessing 4000-5000 range not sure.
    do i even have a chance to win from standing still?
    any comments or advise is much appreciated
    cheers

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    I want to bet on the driver not on the car

    Release at 3000 rpm or you may need a new clutch.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    All you need to win in the Carrera S is for the "course" to include a curve or two.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    i think a good "meet the parents" stare before take-off would do you some good! hehehe

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    loooool

    i dunno, never pushed the car from standing still
    i would if it was a lease though eheheheh

    unfortunatly there is no curves. straight line 400 m or so.
    maybe i should negotiate eliminating the standing still condition to raise my chances and eliminate the bentley's 4 wheel drive advantage, and also save my clutch from unnecessary wear

    i'll upload the vid if i win this lolz

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    Off the line and on the twisties C2S will do well but on the freeway at high speeds the CGT will not be shaken by the C2S.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    sometimes one regrets not purchasing a turbo or gt3
    oh well, a 45k evo slightly modded would have done the job i guess

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    Don't damage the clutch for some stupid 'race.'

    I can't understand way the young boys feel compelled to do this. Enjoy the Porsche for what it is. If just a bunch of straight roads you're wasting your time! This weekend our region of the Porsche club took 95 miles to go 10. I'm still exhausted from all that strenuous driving!!

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    I hope you didn't bet titles.

    The Bentley is AWD and has more horsepower...you might do Ok for the first few seconds, but unless Bozo the clown is driving the Bentley....you could be lunch. if you have the coin, go throw a turbo charger or supercharger on it, but regrettably, I think you may have made a poor wager.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    BTW--with my Bozo the Clown remark, I didn't mean to demean anyone...if the Bentley Driver does a power back (floors the brakes and gas at the same time) he will probably take you off the line as well. I didn't give the Bentley much respect either--I mean Paris Hilton drives one--until a friend took me for a ride in his...its like riding in a very fast freigh train!

    BTW--Dubai is a great city. I was there last year for a couple of weeks.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    effective info !! and glad that u enjoyed dubai !

    so, lets make this clear:
    if the guy just steps on the accelator (99% probability)
    does that makes standing still a better choice?

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    In a straight line you don't have a chance... already tried this with my old Carrera S on Autobahn in Germany once.

    In higher speeds the Bentley pulls away... however, if you include a single turn in the race the Bentley will most likely fall off the road and you will win

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    On a straight line the Continental GT will eat your lunch. But what's the point? Different horses for different courses.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    Let us know how the race goes.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    I think the best start is from 2500rpm and all electronic systems off

    3500-4000 revs should be ideal for a perfect start. Just tested it 2 weeks ago

    BTW: The 997s will be quicker.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT coupe

    600kg and 195hp difference , interesting race.

    I expect a tie till 160kmh , after 200kmh bye bye Carrera S.

    That Contis are really weigh same as Leopard Tank.

    Letr us know the result

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    Em, close one I think but it depends how long the straight is and whether you nail the launch.

    It'll be close, but you might pip the Conti, if ya lucky.

    Re: Porsche Carrera S vs. Bentley continental GT c

    On the launch you will get the jump, the Bentley has quite some turbo-lag, after around 120kph the CGT will eat you up. I have a video of my old CGT vs my 997 C2S on the highway a year or two ago, I'll see if I can dig it up.
