    • 2018 Porsche 911 (991.2) GT3 runs incredible 7:12.17 Nurburgring laptime

      That is quick! The facelifted 991.2 generation 911 GT3 is impressing with its performance which is no surprise. Just how much of an improvement it is might be surprising considering that the 991.2 GT3 improves on the 991.1 GT3 laptime by 12.3 seconds.


      For further context, the Mercedes-AMG GT R manages the feat in 7:10.92. Slightly quicker but also to be noted is that the AMG GT R was tested independently while Porsche set this 991.2 GT3 lap themselves.

      You can view the lap below but here are some details that are important:

      Definitely great conditions for a record run.
