• Porsche 991 Carrera S PDK laps the Nurburgring in an astounding 7:37.9

      The Porsche 991 Carrera S is a very quick vehicle offering exceptional handling as its previous 7 minute and 40 second Nurburgring laptime showed. Porsche was able to improve on their laptime by just slightly over 2 seconds with a 7:37.9 in the hands of professional race car driver Timo Kluck. This puts the car ahead of vehicles like the Ferrari F430 Scuderia (7:39), Porsche 997.1 Turbo (7:39), and the Mercedes McLaren SLR (7:40).

      With such an incredible laptime from the Carrera S PDK the new 991 GT3 is certainly going to raise the bar considerably. Congratulations to Porsche, the 991 continues to astound and we have yet to get to the GT3 and Turbo variants.

        EVO MAG Porsche 991 Ring time 7:37:9
        http://www.evo.co.uk/news/evonews/28..._the_ring.html

        Porsche has confirmed that the new 911 Carrera S has lapped the Nurburgring in 7min 37.9secs, which places it firmly within supercar territory – out-lapping the 7m38s time set by the 911 Turbo in 2008.
        The car was piloted by racing driver Timo Kluck, and the 394bhp 991 Carrera S was fitted with a PDK gearbox.
        It’s not far behind the pace of the other more track-focussed 911s, including the GT3 RS’s time of 7m33s, which bodes well for the Turbo and GT3 versions of the 991 when they come along.

        nice video, but the sound gets way off and the data display i think lags too...so the video gets pointless to watch.

        it's all about the driver, his confidence, then the car. but it's impressive the non-turbo model has beaten the time of the turbo model of 4 years ago.

        These are pro laptimes.

        It really goes to show how impressive the 991 is.
