Porsche 960 could pay the price taking on Ferrari F150

By Updated on

If you are into your supercars then you have a lot to be excited about because Porsche, Ferrari and McLaren all have new models in the works with the 960 (FeFi), F150 and the P1. If you want to know what FeFi mean it’s easy, Ferrari Fighter as the German car manufacturer has their sights set on the Prancing Horse’s successor to the Enzo.

It’s clear to see the Porsche 960 will have to pay the price if they have any hope of taking on the Ferrari F150 because the latter has an array of new technology borrowed from their F1 division to help give it a helping hand in performance and handling. The last we heard the 960 will cost as much as the F150, so Porsche could have a hard time convincing those with the funds that they should go for their model rather than the Ferrari, which could be a tough sell.

The reason we say this is because the Porsche 960 will come with a 3.9-liter flat-eight engine complete with quad-turbo to help produce 650 horsepower. While this may sound impressive, it’s not when you consider that the Ferrari F150 is expected to come with a 6.3-liter V12 engine, which will be boosted to 920 horsepower thanks to KERS technology.

One would presume that the Porsche would be able to take on their Italian rival because it would be much lighter, but if we are to believe some of what we’ve been hearing then the F150 could be about 500 pounds lighter. We shouldn’t count Porsche out just yet but let’s face it, it’s not looking too good is it?
