Yesterday was a sad day for the most annoying of ZR1, ACR and GT-R fans who used to use Nurburgring Nordshcleife lap times as the ultimate proof of excellence in American and Japanese engineering.
Why? If you follow the news on auto industry you probably already know. If you're like me, you probably find yourself staring at the Porsche's press release day after and in disbelief - really? 7:18?
Well, yes. According to press release at least.
"The combined effect of these developments is evident on the racetrack. In fact, the ultimate 911 accelerates from 0-60 in 3.4 seconds, boasts a top-track speed of 205 mph and laps the famed Nürburgring-Nordschleife racetrack in just 7 minutes and 18 seconds."
