Porsche 911 C4S Cabriolet vs BMW M135i drag race

The smallest of BMW's M cars faces off against the iconic Porsche 911

Next up we have a true David vs Goliath moment, as the performance icon that is the Porsche 911 faces off against a young upstart in the form of the BMW M135i

Both cars use six-cylinder engines, but that's where the similarities stop. The BMW has a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight six engine with 320bhp, mounted at the front and driving the rear wheels.

The Porsche on the other hand has its 3.8-litre flat six mounted out behind the rear axle, where it serves up 400bhp to the rear wheels.  To find out the result, just watch the video above...
