Just talking in acceleration figures because in a track things will continue to be different leaving the 1M Coupe the advantage (at least until we know some M135 track times, but the 1M Coupe should continue to run faster around a track)
I don't think so. The PPK produces more torque in cars equipped with automatic transmissions that have torque converters. The 135is has a choice of manual or DCT which does not have a torque converter.
