    • Sport Auto wrings a 7:17.1 Nurburgring laptime out of the Porsche 991.2 Turbo S

      The 991.2 generation Porsche 911 Turbo S sure is a step in up in performance. Let's provide some Porsche 991.2 context here. The new 911 GT3 manages a 7:12.17 laptime around the Nurburgring but that is a factory Porsche time.


      Sport Auto is an independent publication and ran the 991.2 Turbo S on Pirelli P Zero Corsa rubber.

      What time did Sport Auto get for the 991.2 GT3 around the Nurburgring? 7:18.

      The bottom line if you want to go fast Porsche has you covered with 911's in several flavors.

      The question now is what will the new GT3 RS do?

        So your telling me a Camaro ZL1 1LE is quicker around the ring. Along with a host of other older corvettes as well. How much below the 7 minutes do you think the Zr1 will be.

        The ZL1 did a 7.16.04. What's hard to believe about that?

        The ZR1 no doubt is targeting the GT2 RS.

        Well I think Porsche better step it up and loose some weight maybe go to a carbon tub like Mclaren. I am a chevy guy and I my Porsche is awesome. When the Camaro can lap a track faster than a stock turbo can then porsche has a problem. I just called to inquire about ordering a ZR1 my dealership has 1 slot still open and they want 25k over msrp for it, I still remember the last ZR1 they had a hard time selling the last of them. I am trying to make a deal with the guy I will pay a few bucks over on one but not 25k to be the first guy on the block to have one.

        Its a great time to be a car guy. FYI my 2016 Camaro SS just put down 740whp and 620 torque gonna pick up up early next week and hit the track soon.

        You want the base 911 to start at $200k?

        No they don't. That Camaro can beat just about anything.

        Plus, the Americans have really stepped it up.
