Two cars. Same speed. Which one is going faster?

My sister and I are having a debate which I find crazy that we disagree on this. You have two cars driving right next to each other. One is a Toyota, the other is a Porsche. Both cars are driving 75 miles/hr. Which car is going faster?

Read the question carefully before answering.

  • They are both going the same speed unless their speedometers are off. If all the above is true then what use does a cop with a radar gun serve? "Oh officer your radar gun is wrong because I am in a Porsche or I am in Dodge....."

  • That's funny, because in my car (a hyundai tiburon) and my SO truck (Dodge Ram 1500) if we are going to the same place and I am beside him on the freeway, his speedometer will say 55 and mine will say 65! I think maybe the tires are different on the truck and not getting a true speedometer reading? Not sure why?
