Porsche does own more than half of manthey racing,so yes,technically its the owner...an saying that their record it's not a valid record,it's the same that saying if the record was with weissach package wasn't valid too....of course its a valid record,just because it's the better machine

To be fair, long time ago when Nissan did their GTR Nismo record on the ring, it was equipped with a N package option that costed more than a whole brand new GTR. AND it wasn’t even available outside of Japan. Worst was that Nissan just sold their Nurburgring time like it was achievable for any GTR you buy without ever mentioning the modified details

I think this should be a separate model, like the P1 LM is on this site, since it isn't a production car, rather a modified/tuned car. Now you have it listed as a "stock" GT2 RS.

Hello, Editor. Can you separate the time of 911 GT2rs into modified and stock? Thanks you

This GT2 RS is modified yes, but not dissimiliar to what Lambo did to do a lap record with the SVJ, Lamborghini is not selling an alignment and set up for the Nurburgring with the SVJ, hence it's not exactly stock either. At least Porsche is being transparent that this 2 RS set up is enhanced by Manthey Racing, one where people could actually get.

Though Lambo buyers has never been about laptimes, more bragging rights, so Lambo got that all set

This is the GT2 RS "MR". Not a series-produced road-legal car. It is however a road-legal car. So the SVJ is on top of this list for the time being, the P1 LM has been beaten ... Not many people get this right :P

Mantey is not owned Porsche. Mantey is a company that make the setup of porsche on circuit. It is more efective than a tuned engine. It is not a stock car, is a tuned wing and flat plane over stock car.

It is a modified GT2RS, A tuned Porsche, Plain and simple, Its not stock anymore. Nuff said. It doesnt have the production car record, The SVJ does, All there is to it.
