Porsche 911 Carrera S cuts Nürburgring time

991 Porsche 911 Carrera S

Porsche has done something it doesn’t normally do; release onboard video to support a claimed Nürburgring lap time. In this instance it’s the 294kW 3.8 litre 991 911 Carrera S lapping the Nordschleife in 7 minutes 37.9 seconds.

Previously, Porsche had claimed the same car lapped the Ring in 7:40, so this is a pretty handy effort from a sniffling Timo Kluck.

According to the unofficial database of lap times held on Wikipedia this is where the 991 Carrera S sits:

  • 7:33 – 997.2 Porsche 911 GT3 RS (2010)
  • 7:34 – Koenigsegg CCR (2005)
  • 7:37.9 – 991 Porsche 911 Carrera S (2012)
  • 7:38 – Lexus LFA (2010)
  • 7:38 – 997 Porsche 911 Turbo (2008)
