On the 20th of September 2017, Porsche set a new track record on the Nürburgring Nordschleife for a road-approved sports car. The new 911 GT2 RS lap time was 6 minutes 47.3 seconds.
Check out this on-board video from Porsche of the event.
Frank-Steffen Walliser, Vice President Motorsport and GT Cars, said:
“At the start of the development process, we set ourselves a lap time target for the GT2 RS of less than 7 minutes and 5 seconds. The credit for beating this target by 17.7 seconds goes to our development engineers, mechanics and drivers, who demonstrated an exceptionally strong team performance. This result makes it official: The GT2 RS is not only the most powerful, but also the fastest 911 ever built”.
