Will 2 cars on same speed but different engine power remain in same position on the road?

Okay. So basically, there's 2 cars, one is a 1.6 litre regular sedan and another a a sports car. If both are driving at the same exact speed, will the sports car be ahead of the other car or will they both still drive parallel?

    If they are going the same speed then they'll stay right next to each other as they move down the highway until one of them either speeds up or slows down.

    It doesn't matter how much "power" one car has compared to the other.

    d=vt  no acceleration involved.

    The calibration of the speedometers is more important. Engines could be a Briggs & Stratton 3.2hp vs a 460 police interceptor and have no effect.

    Even at the same speed according to their individual speedometers, one can be ahead of the other due to differences in calibration, as well as tire type, selection and differences from the originally specified factory tires. Tire differences as opposed to factory specs can throw off the speedometer.

    Same speed? If the same speed than how would there be a difference. Are you for real or trying to be funny?

    Top speed is different - but if they both go at the same speed, they're exactly equal

    If they are at the same speed, do you think one of them will be ahead?)
