Porsche 911 GT3 RS crushes own 'Ring lap time

The manufacturer's third auto to record the feat is the 911 GT3 RS, the most powerful naturally-aspirated 911 ever with 513bhp, which joins the 918 Spyder and 911 GT2 RS in Porsche's exclusive sub-7-minute club.

"This lap was a sensational experience for me". This is one of the quickest times for a production vehicle.

"No other Porsche model gets as close to racing as the new GT3 RS".

It also marks a happy Nurburgring trifecta for the German brand, with the the GT3 RS the third Porsche to break the seven-minute barrier at the infamous race track.

The quickest lap was undertaken at 11:40am in ideal conditions, at 14 degrees Celsius, and a track temp of 18 degrees. "This proves not only the outstanding power of the GT3 RS, but also its extraordinary driveability at the limit". Up to 9,000 revs per minute from a six-cylinder engine just feels fantastic. For the hot lap, the auto was driven by Porsche works driver, Frenchman Kévin Estre.

Porsche 911 GT3 RS Nurburgring Lap Record

The auto that set the lap time used Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tires optimized for track day use and began the record lap at 11:40 am in ideal conditions: 14 degree Celsius ambient and 18 degree Celsius track temperature. "The sound is a dream and the torque is massive".

Andreas Preuninger, Director GT Model Line, said both Estre and Kern were able to bank consistently fast laps in the GT3 RS. Four lap times were taken from each driver, and all we under the seven-minute mark.

Powered by a race-bred 4.0-litre naturally-aspirated flat-six engine with 383kW and a 9000rpm redline, the GT3 RS can accelerate to 100km/h in 3.2 seconds, before topping out at 312km/h.

Porsche debuted the 911 GT3 RS, its most powerful naturally aspirated vehicle ever, at the Geneva auto show in March.
