Porsche 911 GT3 goes 12s faster on its Nürburgrin­g record


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’.
