Yesterday, as we informed you, Mini held its Porsche challenge race against the German sportscar manufacturer. At a special circuit in the Road Atlanta race grounds, the Cooper S took on the 911 Carrera.
As you could imagine, even if the track was laid out in favor of the Mini, the Porsche 911 still took home the crown, even if it wasn’t driven by an official Porsche representative. The difference was about 2 seconds, or $38,000 a second, as Mini puts it.
Still, the race was pretty interesting, so hit the jump and see how the Mini Cooper S faired against the Porsche 911, plus interviews with the two drivers.
