The new generation Porsche 911 has been improved significantly, with new technologies, a new engine, and a weight reduction of about 100 lbs pushing it to a level never before seen for the Porsche. The proof is in the pudding and today’s dessert is Nurburgring flavored. The new 911/991 Carrera S has managed to lap the famous circuit in only 7 min. 40 seconds, about 13 seconds faster than the previous model and matching that of the previous generation’s race-ready 911 GT3.

After reporting this time, Porsche 911 vehicle line director, August Achleitner said: "It is not so important for us; it is just for comparison." Funny, all we heard was blah, blah, blah, everyone else needs to get ready! This new time set by the Carrera S opens up all kinds of doors for the rest of the 911 models. For example, if the Carrera S model’s lap time matched that of the previous GT3, then what can we expect for the new GT3? And how about the 911 Turbo? Are we looking at a vehicle that will be able to smash the 7m 24 sec record set by the Nissan GT-R?

To say we’re tingling with excitement would be an understatement.

The style of this car looks like a Mercedes benz car because of the concept and the long style of the body and the hood. The color of the car is great and its good to eye. However, I can’t see the interior part of the car. I don’t know if the interior part of this car is good like the exterior part.

I like Porsche car brand. The style and design of this car are great specially the paint color of the car is great. The light-weight car like this has a good performance and the horse power is enough for this car because of the light-weight car.
