Porsche 911 GT2 RS sets record 6:47.3 Nurburgring lap time

Just another day at the Nordschleife GT2 RS sets fastest 911 lap ever

The vehicle just destroyed the record for the shortest Nürburgring lap by a Porsche. More wonderful still is that Porsche didn't just shave a few milliseconds off the previous record.

The lap time surpassed even Porsche's own expectations, as the automaker had set a target of under 7 minutes and 5 seconds at the start of the development process. It's also faster than the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, the Porsche 918 Spyder, the Lamborghini Aventador, the Dodge Viper ACR and the Nissan GT-R Nismo.

We reported last week that the GT2 RS (the most powerful 911 to be created) was allegedly knocking out sub 7-minute laptimes at the infamous Nurburgring Nordschleife. He credits the automaker's engineers, mechanics, and drivers for the auto being able to beat their benchmark by 17.7 seconds, making the Porsche 911 GT2 RS the most powerful and the fastest 911 to date.

The German sports auto brand's latest baby, the 2018 911 GT2 RS, claimed the spot back right in Nürburgring-Nordschleife in time of only 6:47.3.Porsche didn't just shave a few milliseconds off the previous record.

What Happens If Trump Decertifies Iran Compliance With the Nuclear Deal?
He said, "No nation on Earth has an interest in seeing this band of criminals arm itself with nuclear weapons and missiles". Iran has increased trade with Asian and European countries since the agreement was signed, but not with the United States.

Porsche Le Mans prototype driver Nick Tandy and factory test driver/local VLN Series ace Lars Kern both took turns setting laps in two different GT2 RSes, and both smashed Lamborghini's record. The vehicle was wearing road legal Michelin Pilot Cup 2 tyres.

Porsche racing drivers Lars Kern from Germany and Nick Tandy from the United Kingdom were behind the wheels of a pair of 911s that lapped the famous German race circuit.

When you look at the performance stats of the 911 GT2 RS, it's not exactly surprising that it managed to shave a few seconds off of a world record. That's good for a 0-60 time of just 2.7 seconds and a top speed (on track only, of course) of 211 miles per hour.

Sadly, Porsche is building just 1,000 examples, and they're all sold out.
