Please correct me if I am wrong, but I thought this lap time was for the 718 Cayman GTS, not the Boxster model.

They use worst drivers in the whole auto industry... Don't take those times too serious.

Well the Cayman gts easily beats a M3/4 and m5 at Laguna Seca. Given how narrow the track is in the twisty places, you’d think the small car had some advantafe

It is true they use different drivers for the test hence a lack of consistency I guess

They take around 11 or so drivers from there own firm, Each person getting around 10 laps from each of the cars, They get the best laptimes from each and post them regardless of who it is.

And how are the the worst drivers, When there best time in a C7 is 2s away from a factory set time? That there, Proves they are damn good drivers. Dont hate.
