So we are back on the Nurburgring topic but this time it is not about the lap record. It is rather to tell you that the new Porsche 991.2 GT3 has beaten the previous GT3’s time by an incredible 12.3 seconds. Lapping the circuit in just 7:12 the video below shows just how impressive the ‘facelift’ GT3 is with it’s rear-axle steering, 7-speed PDK gearbox and Michelin Sport Cup 2 N1 tyres.
“By achieving this time, we have emphatically proven that the new 911 GT3 not only provides the best driving experience, but can also deliver an impressive performance on the Nordschleife. The focus was on optimising the driving quality and adapting to the slight increase in engine power,” said VP of motorsport & GT cars at Porsche, Frank-Steffen Walliser.
“A few years ago, lap times like this could only ever be achieved by thoroughbred racing cars with slick tyres,” added GT product line director, Andreas Preuninger. “The new GT3 can now achieve this with comparatively modest power, but is still fully suited for everyday use.”
