What is the maximum speed of a San Francisco cable car?

Cable cars' speed is determined by the speed of the cable they grip (and release to stop). In San Francisco the cable speed is 9 and a half miles per hour according to the museum site, but I suppose they can go a whole lot quicker if they detach from the cable on the way down a steep hill. http://www.cablecarmuseum.com/Tour/
