Today, at Road America in Atlanta, the MINI vs. Porsche saga consumed its last episode. In the over-hyped and unfair “fight” between the Mini Cooper and the Porsche 911, as expected the sporty luxury brand took the win.
According to a report by Autoblog, the track was modified to maximize the MINI’s potential and neuter the high-speed prowess of the Porsche. But despite “these efforts”, the MINI Cooper S lost the battle by two seconds.
As we said above, the outcome was expected, based on the performance of the two cars and also, the price.
With this race out of the way, we wonder how MINI will respond to their Hyundai challenge which takes their place as a challenger in another race.
