The new Porsche GT3 RS laps the Nurburgring in 7:33
The Nurburgring has long been a testing ground for a number of the world’s fastest vehicles. It seems that all of the biggest car manufacturers have taken their turns around the Nurburgring with the same goal in mind: set the fastest lap for a production car in one of the world’s most famous circuits
The latest to take a stab at the record is the new Porsche 997 GT3 RS, which took to the track last week. While the record – 6m and 48s set by the Radical SR8LM - was realistically unattainable, the GT3 RS wanted to measure itself up against cars of its caliber.
In the end, the GT3 RS posted a time of 7m and 33s, seven seconds faster than the standard GT3. The time falls way short of the SR8LM’s lap record and is also slower than the Nissan GT-R’s time of 7m 27s. The GT3 RS’s lap time is still an impressive time posted by the folks from Porsche.
