Watch: iPhone 6 Gets Dropped Out of a Porsche 911 Turbo S at 120mph

Urban Armor Gear's smartphone stunt has some pretty impressive results.

What better way to test the effectiveness of a smartphone case than dropping out of the window of an exotic sports car? Urban Armor Gear (UAG) used a Porsche 911 Turbo S on a closed course to test how well its new case protects the iPhone 6.

The Porsche 911 Turbo S is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six rated 560 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. Power is sent to all four wheels via a seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission. On three separate attempts, UAG planned to drop an iPhone 6 housed in its folio case at 60 mph, 100 mph, and 120 mph.

The first two drops were done at 63.4 mph and 101.8 mph, respectively. After the first two drops, the smartphone was undamaged and functioned properly. The third drop happened at 121.9 mph. On the final attempt, the iPhone 6 suffered from some slight scratches where it partially came out of the case, but the screen appeared to be undamaged.

Check out the video below to watch an iPhone 6 get dropped out of a Porsche 911 Turbo S at speed.
