Porsche’s Nordschleife engine simulator

This is very cool! Porsche have collected data from countless hours of Nürburgring Nordschleife testing to produce the virtual engine simulator. The telemetry gathered enables the simulator to not only recreate the acceleration and engine braking from a lap at the Ring, but also the G-forces as well. This machine was used in the development of the new dry sump engines in the recently launched 2009 911 range.
