VIDEO: Audi R8 V10 Plus vs Porsche 911 Turbo

A spring fling with two of the world's finest all-weather sports cars
by David Pratte

If you live in the northeast like I do, you’ve just suffered through one of the worst winters in a very long time. The spring hasn’t been much better, either, but with most of the snow now melted, we couldn’t wait to get out to our local road course and officially declare winter closed and track season open.

And what better way to do exactly that than in two world-class sports car that not only let you have big-time fun in the dry and warmth of summer, but also in the less idyllic conditions of those other three seasons. In fact, both the Porsche 911 Turbo and Audi R8 V10 Plus are equipped with all-wheel drive systems that mean you can truly enjoy them 365 days a year. As proof of that fact, both our test mules were still rolling on Pirelli winter tires.

That may sound like a giant buzz kill to some of you, but with ambient air temps below 50°F and a fair bit of snow melt running across the front straight and some big puddles elsewhere on the track, we weren’t complaining about the winter tires. Nor were we complaining about the fact that the sun was shining and we had the track all to ourselves. Time for some epic launch control battles!
