New 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 crushes its own Nurburgring lap time

New 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 crushes its own Nurburgring lap time

Porsche’s latest 2018 911 GT3 just visited the Nurburgring track and came back beating the outgoing model by a whopping 12.3 seconds. 

Porsche’s new 911 GT3 flew the lap in 7:12.7, and in the process makes it the second fastest Porsche to have lapped the Nurburgring. The pole position is held by none other than Porsche’s 918 Spyder that uses all of 887bhp and brilliant dynamics to record its 6:57 lap time in 2013. So what is it that enabled the latest 911 GT3 to crush its predecessor’s lap time? 

Well, there’s only a few surprisingly. Sources state that the new car produces 500bhp and 458Nm of torque from a reworked 4.0-litre flat-six engine. That’s a whole 25 horses more than the previous model which made 475bhp. And this, combined with some smart aerodynamic design work, like a new front nose that optimises airflow along with a larger front and rear diffuser, helped it accomplish this feat. Just so that we’re on the same page, the new 911 GT3 that went on to break its own record, was equipped with the standard PDK transmission, rear-axle steering, carbon ceramic brakes (an optional extra), and a set of sticky Michelins, all of which can be had straight from the factory.

Despite receiving only minor tweaks, the latest 911 GT3 has made a significant performance leap that’s been highlighted by the new Nurburgring record. A feat indeed.
