7 minutes, 12.7 seconds: The 911 GT3 sets a new best time

The new Porsche 911 GT3 has celebrated its first day on the Nürburgring with a lap time of 7 minutes, 12.7 seconds for the legendary Nordschleife. The road-approved 911, with specifications similar to its motorsport counterpart, beat the time set by the previous model by 12.3 seconds.

Was done on the same day the 918 was back out on track apparently benchmarking but also when they were testing the new GT2 RS

7:33 secs into the clip for the GT2RS 7:11 secs or so for the GT3 doing its warm ups.

Quote:
“By achieving this time, we have emphatically proven that the new 911 GT3 not only provides the best driving experience, but can also deliver an impressive performance on the Nordschleife. The focus was on optimising the driving quality and adapting to the slight increase in engine power”, says a delighted Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT cars at Porsche. “A few years ago, lap times like this could only ever be achieved by thoroughbred racing cars with slick tyres”, adds Andreas Preuninger, Director GT Product Line. “The new GT3 can now achieve this with comparatively modest power, but is still fully suited to everyday use.”

And why the hell not? You bag a slot on the ultimate track weapon and don't take it to a track?

That's akin to pulling a tipsy Liz Hurley and not banging her!!
