The new 911 GT3 Nürburgring lap time.
The Porsche 991.2 911 GT3 may look very similar to its predecessor but under the skin much has changed. This is proven by the official lap time set by the 991.2 GT3 around the legendary Nürburgring. A track which seems to be proving ground for fast cars. “If you can drive fast on the Nordschleife, you can drive fast anywhere in the world”, Frank-Steffen Walliser commented.
The new Porsche GT3 set a lap time of 7 minutes and 12 seconds. That, my friends, is 12.3 seconds faster than the previous generation 991 GT3. That is a very fast time and a big improvement which shows the changes to the GT3 really do make a difference. Read about the changes here: The New Porsche 991.2 GT3 Has Changed More Than You Think.
It’s worth noting this time was set on Michelin Sport Cup 2 N1 tyres which come standard with the Porsche 991.2 GT3.
There is currently no official time for the GT3 RS, Although some have rumored it set a time of 7 minutes and 20 seconds, in the wet. The official time set by the GT3 has also sparked rumors suggesting a sub 7 minute lap time from the upcoming Window Maker – the GT2.
This could mean a production car lap record if it beats the claimed time of the time Lamborhini Huracan Performante – 6 Minutes and 52 seconds, which many are saying never happened…
