Porsche 911 GT3 goes 12s faster on its Nür­bur­gring record

New Zealand Classic Car - - Feature -

S ome con­sider Nür­bur­gring records to be the ab­so­lute gold stan­dard of test­ing, while oth­ers don’t rate them at all, but re­gard­less of what you think, a car which goes 12 sec­onds faster than its out­go­ing model is noth­ing to spit at. And that’s ex­actly what Porsche has achieved with its new Porsche 911 GT3. Clock­ing in at seven min­utes 12.7 sec­onds, it’s now among the fastest to ever run the fa­mous Ger­man track, and rep­re­sents a per­for­mance im­prove­ment for a car that weighs roughly the same as the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, while mak­ing marginally more power. Sig­nif­i­cant credit goes to the aero changes which have ob­vi­ously made a big dif­fer­ence. You can watch video footage of the en­tire run at The Mo­tor­hood by search­ing ‘Porsche 911 Nür­bur­gring’.
