Porsche claims new GT2 will lap Nordschleife in 7:32Enlarge Photo
To put that into perspective, this is the same time that the Carrera GT and Pagani Zonda F supercars take to lap the famous circuit. The new GT2 would also leave cars like Ferrari’s F430 and 599 GTB, plus the AWD Lamborghini Gallardo eating its dust with more than a 10 second gap on all of them.
For the uninitiated, the Nordschleife or Northern Loop is a 22.8km circuit at the famous Nurburging in Germany. Since its opening in 1927, the track has quickly become the benchmark for testing both car performance and driver skills for the public and carmakers alike. That’s why almost any performance carmaker worth its salt will head to the Nurburging to test prototypes of their future cars.
