Biden Zooms in Porsche at 171 MPH

President Silent on Time of Event

It is well-known that President Biden is an aficionado of cars. If his 1967 C2 Corvette Coupe does not stand testament, it has been noticed that he flusters the Secret Service with random burnouts occurring on their exclusive test circuit. The same can be said for Conan O’Brien who, to this day, keeps a 1992 Ford Taurus SHO even after all these years. On a recent episode of the former TV star’s podcast entitled “Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend”, the dialogue touched on cars and Biden had some tales of personal automotive adventure to share. Ne’er have we heard these disclosures prior.

It appears that the 46th president of the United States is a fan of launch control. This was revealed when he recently drove an unspecified Porsche, which he had never been in before. Although the details of the president’s drive remain unknown, he told O’Brien “You know the new ones? They have a launch switch. I got a Porsche up to 171 miles an hour,” before going into an explanation of how the feature works. “It is incredible,” he concluded.

President Biden gave no deeper account other than that quick declaration, however it is most probable that the spin in the sports vehicle from Stuttgart happened prior to him being president. Porsches have been furnished with launch control for a while now, and everywhere the world’s most influential person drives a car, we tend to grasp news about it and often come upon footage.

President Biden has displayed a few fresh electric vehicles to the media, for example, the Hummer EV, F-150 Lightning and Cadillac Lyriq. Also, at the Detroit Auto Show last year, he was captured revving a Z06 Corvette. Naturally, all this happened off public roadways. Last time we are conscious of him driving his C2 apparently was at the Secret Service trial ground.

It’s uncertain which exact Porsche model he drove to 171mph; however, the majority of models that Porsche produces, in particular their sports cars, are propelling enough to achieve those velocities. The current 911 S/T, for example, can hit 0-60 in a brisk 3.5 seconds and reaches an ultimate maximum speed of 186 miles per hour.
