Unofficially, at least, the new Porsche 911 GT3 still can’t match the Nissan GT-R in a hot lap around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. According to reports on the internetz Porsche über driver Walter Rohrl recently took the GT3 around the Ring in an open session, shared with other manufacturers, and posted a best lap time of 7 minutes 40 seconds.
Someone with a bit of cred needs to settle this baloney once and for all. Same driver, same track, same day. Get whatever 911 they choose, no, damnit, bring ’em all along, the Turbo, GT2 and GT3 and take on the GT-R at the Nordschleife. No bullshit, just a decent independent test. The Stig perhaps? Sabine? Whoever, just get it on!
UPDATE: Nissan have released new information stating the GT-R has set a new best lap with a time of 7:26.7 [Jalopnik].
