Default GT3.2 Nordschleife


My first post- and its no nice one:

tbe below says that the Nordschleifen Time for the .2 GT3 is 7:29

7:22 was the new GTS.....


would say that is very disappointing - any views?

You can check some discussion at 991.2 GTS, GT3, GT2, GT3 RS, Mission E - Update, anyway, Porsche boss says they don't care about ring time, so that's the result, take it or leave it. I will take .2 GT3 no matter it's 10 min in the ring. But not the performante even it's at top of the production car ring lap time record.

I'm personally devastated by these news : I can't sleep,I can't eat...life makes no sense anymore. I was careless enough today to cut my pinky with a piece of paper!

.1 gt3 was 7.25 at the ring. Why would the new one with more power and same weight, better aerodynamics be slower? Doesn't sound right unless this is the manual gt3 time.

Maybe more aero hurt it on a track like this? No idea but i doubt any of us would ever notice.

I remain skeptical regarding this ad. I don't recall Porsche advertising a Ring time to sell a GT car especially one that is slower than its predecessor .1GT3 (7.25) which did it with factory drivers. I can't believe factory drivers couldn't beat that time with 25 more hp and better tires. Also, how does this ad square with AP's comments that lap times are no longer relevant? They advertise a slower time?

It just doesn't make sense.

Agreed. Maybe conditions were worse? Straight up you would expect the new one to be a little quicker.

Taking ring time as the only measure is stupid, but 7:29 sounds slow in today's standard.
And...slower than the previous generation doesn't look good by any means.

This is what you get when you demand a car that doesn't self immolate and provides oiling to all parts of the engine.

.1GT3 was 7:32

About .2GTS time same question indeed, where s the 7:25 evidence?

Guys you have to know that MOst of the modern Ring times from brands are computer hypothesis
smthing like given the HP,Tq,Tires,Aero drag,Weight etc etc etc
model x Ring time is...

The new AMG GTR does it in 7:10!!! Yet it can easily be bought from most MBZ dealers at MSRP. My friend is getting the first one from his local dealer and I don't think he has even bought a car from them before. The 991 turbo S does it in 7:25 yet every dealer has a bunch of them. Maybe ring time doesn't really translate into desirability anymore.
