Ford F-150 or Porsche 911? Somehow, That is the Question

Ford F-150

America’s best selling pickup truck, or a high end and highly acclaimed, German sports car? You may no longer need to save money your entire life!

Thanks to Ford’s Ecoboost technology, you may be able to carry your neighbors couch, and go drag racing at the same time. How? A simple tweak of the turbos on the mighty-fine 3.5 liter Ecoboost, 6 cylinder engine.

This great video by BigKleib34 shows a Ford F-150 SuperCrew pickup, tearing the drag strip against opponents like a Mitsubishi EVO and modified Mustang. And although this particular footage doesn’t show any victories on his behalf, the Ford’s quarter mile times are nothing short of impressive. How impressive? Mid 12’s and around 105 mph for the quarter mile, which is how long it’d take a 2014 Porsche 911 to do so. (Although at 112 mph)

Regardless of how you see it, there isn’t one single truck engineer that ever thought “Gee, the F-150 would make a great drag racer”. That’s the Ecoboost magic for ya!
