The question, if Porsche is the fastest German made car, is not actually very simple to answer. Multiple heavy weight car brands that are famous for their advanced engineering and innovative design including Volkswagan, Audi, Porsche, BMW and Daimler have their origin in Germany. Most of these brands have their hybrid sports models and it is indeed a point of great debate which one is actually the best as far as speed is concerned. However, Porsche is obviously one of the fastest cars around which is praised for its high- end engineering and extreme power.
Bugatti Veyron Vs Porsche 918
In the year 2008, the fastest car the world witnessed was the Bugatti Veyron 16.4, which could hit 60mph within 2.5 seconds and can cover the quarter of a mile within as little as 10.1 seconds. However, even this record was smashed by Porsche 918, which was tested to be able to hit the 60 mph mark in just 2.2 seconds and cover a distance of one fourth of a mile in 9.8 seconds. So, in this rate with increasing acceleration the Porsche 918 can easily beat the Veyron by miles; and hence you can actually call it the fastest car.
Porsche AG and their production line
Porsche AG is the biggest and the most traditional Sports Car manufacturer in the world. The brand established by Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG is a specialized manufacturer of sports cars, sedans and SUVs. The company has it’s headquarter at Stuttgart and is a subsidiary of Volkswagan AG. The current models of Porsche running on the roads are 911, Cayman, Cayenne, Boxster, Panamera, Macan, and the fastest 918. Most of these models are not actually faster than the fastest BMW or Mercedes. So, we cannot say that Porsche is the fastest German made car, because Mercedes SLS AMG can actually beat most of these models in speed, except the fastest one, the Porsche 918.
Fastest cars from German manufacturers
German cars have for long been a point of amazement to the world. These cars have placed a mark of standard in the automobile manufacturing industry. The famous American, Italian and Japanese brands have often followed the innovative ideas introduced by the German automobile manufacturers to make their mark in the market. The fastest BMW model, the M5 30th Anniversary Edition is capable to gain a speed of 60 mph within 3.7 seconds, which is far lower compared to the Porsche. Mercedes SLS AMG Black Series, the fastest car from the other German manufacturer Daimler is capable to hit a speed of 0-60 within 3.2 seconds and cover a quarter of a mile within 11.2 seconds, which is again not up to the mark of Porsche 918.
The fastest car of the world
However, at present the crown of the fastest car of the world is not with Porsche or Veyron, it is the Hennessey Venom GT that has captured the super title. This super car is manufactured by Hennessey Performance Engineering a Texas based company, and assembled in England. So, even though Porsche 918 is the fastest German made car it is not certainly the fastest car in the world.
