    • Nurburgring laptime for the 991 Carrera S is in, incredible 7:40

      This... is impressive. 7:40 out of the new Carrera S? That is about a 13 second improvement on the previous model which is a very large jump for a car that did not exactly get a huge horsepower bump. To help put this time in perspective AutoBild hit a 7:40 in the Mercedes SLR. Horst von Saurma hit 7:40 in the 997.2 GT3 for Sport Auto. Autobild got a 7:40 out of the Murcielago LP-640. So yes, this is a blazing fast time. We assume the PDK gearbox used and the new hydraulically activated roll bar system played a huge roll.

      This lap time information comes directly from Porsche 911 vehicle director August Achleitner who said the new 911 S was basically as fast around the ring as the previous generation GT3.

        You're welcome. Yeah, the colors look very sharp. The florescent green is kinda Eightiesish but, for me, it will never go out of style.

        The 80's is when I was created, never going to go out of style and a great decade apparently.
