911 has no idea he’s about to be embarrased

Porsche 911 owners are a smug lot. And for good reason – they drive around safe in the knowledge that their car is faster than 99 per cent of the metal around them. On a drag strip however, anything can happen.

Mk1 Escort Cosworth Turbo

Smoke out the back makes the 911 owner feel even more smug

Lined up against an original Ford Escort with a turbocharged 2.0-litre Pinto engine, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the Porker has this one sewn up. After all, 3.6-litre, 321hp flat-6 beats 2.1-litre Pinto in a game of Top Trumps.

'Tatty-bye, mo-fo!'

‘Tatty-bye, mo-fo!’

But this is the drag strip, where cars rarely fight fair. For that reason, let’s enjoy this Porsche getting well and truly owned.
