Porsche announced the official Nurburgring Nordschleife lap time of the new Porsche 911 GT2 RS. We already heard some rumors, saying that the car is under 7 minutes, but there’s something else we had no idea about, how much under? The GT2 RS has lapped the Green Hell in 6 minutes 47.3 seconds. And it’s not like Porsche 911 GT2 RS broke a sweat doing that unbelievably quick time. Porsche test drivers have been doing steady sub 7-minute laps for a while. Lars Kern (30) from Germany and Nick Tandy (32) from the UK broke the previous record for road-approved sports cars (6 minutes, 52.01 seconds) in their first attempt and subsequently finished five laps in under 6 minutes, 50 seconds. The actual record was set by Tandy whose usual ‘office’ is the Le Mans prototype Porsche 919 Hybrid. Even with a bit of jet lag – he’d just arrived from Texas – the man managed to bang in that excellent time which is a testament to the capabilities of the GT2 RS. In case you have forgotten,the 1,470 kg 2018 Porsche 911 GT2 RS packs a colossal 700-hp from a biturbo flat-six engine.
