Porsche has unveiled a very cool video featuring the new Porsche 911 Carrera S during a very hot lap around the Nürburgring track. With racing driver Timo Kluck behind the wheel, the car managed an impressive lap time of 7:37.9 minutes. This an impressive result considering, at the vehicle’s official launch, Porsche had announced that the car could lap the ’Ring in 7:40.

The Porsche Carrera S is powered by a 3.8-liter flat-six with direct injection engine that delivers a total of 400HP and sprints the car from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds or 4.1 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono Package. The Carrera S can hit a top speed of 180 mph.

Enjoy one lap of the Green Hell in a Carrera S, but make sure you turn up those speakers first!

@john: or maybe it’s the time most drivers can get out of that car, LOL smiley. giving it to professional drivers will only get the time better.

@otto: maybe they set the 7:40 with a wife on the right seat and 2 kids in the back.

that’s one hell of a time, if you take into consideration this is a car that has 4 seats and can be used on a daily basis.

having a time that’s less than the manufacturer announced is something worthy of being mentioned!
