200 MPH In A Porsche 911 R

Illustration for article titled 200 MPH In A Porsche 911 R

I’m not going to try and add flare to something so particularly special, so just watch EVO’s Henry Catchpole hit 200 mph in a brand new Porsche 911 R on the Autobahn and try to imagine what it feels like.

Brave Henry and his brave co-driver manage to reach an indicated speed of 320 kmh, which technically equals about 198 mph. But given that these digital indicators may only be so accurate, and factor in the ridiculousness of speed threshold the car is being balanced at, we’ll chalk this up to close enough.

The 911 R makes it seem too easy, at least when there isn’t a damned caravan in the way.
