I thought the Porsche Turbo S PDK would be the faster one compared to the Ferrari.
Why? Both cars have 7-speed DCT. Ferrari is lighter and more powerful, but with less torque. Top speed of 997 is around 320 while Ferrari can reach 330.

here is my expirience of my Turbo PDK + ecu tuned 550HPS vs 458 Italia, the quality of this video is not good, but.... no chances for 458!!!

this rolling start is 2º gear 70/80km/h to 5/6º gear 240/260km/h

Yes, but this video was shot at >2500ft, the 458 had about 10% less power, but the turbo is not affected at all at this altitude.

imagine a race in the Andes, outside La Paz at 4000 m = 12,000 ft altitude! the cars will be as slow as a Golf GTi. LOL
