Porsche claims a Ring record after all

Porsche Panamera Turbo

Figuring they can’t win the PR battle with the Japanese, Porsche has gone after an altogether softer target. The Americans. And, this time, they’ve won!

News from last month tells us that the Panamera Turbo has lapped the Nordschleife in 7 minutes and 56 seconds. That puts it three seconds ahead of the Cadillac CTS-V, which means the Panamera Turbo can lay claim to being the fastest four-door saloon to lap the Green Hell.

So there you go, now Porsche can throw its weight around in the schoolyard too.
