How much would you expect a 991S to be ahead by at that point? 1-2 cars in a matter of ~3 seconds (50 mph) is a lot to lose by no matter which way you look at it. And to add to it, if he actually used launch control (which he obviously didnt) he would have been ahead by even more. The bigger (actually huge) gap would come quick thereafter.
I guess by my count, all Im saying is if you think 1-2 cars in that short of a 'race' isnt even in the range of being relatively close. Even a faster car than a 991S, say a GTR wouldnt be more than a couple to a few cars length ahead by 50 mph.
