Porsche says - 918 successor should lap the ‘Ring in 6:30

Porsche says - 918 successor should lap the ‘Ring in 6:30

Being Porsche isn’t easy. And that is because every time you set off to build the next car, the benchmarks of engineering and performance, which have already been set in the sky, need to be raised higher. So when Porsche started thinking about a successor to the mind-numbing 918 hypercar, they set themselves an equally daunting target – lap the Nurburgring within six minutes and 30 seconds.

The best effort by the 918 at the holy grail of performance proving grounds has led to a lap time of six minutes 57 seconds. Which means, the next Porsche hypercar will lap the circuit 27 seconds faster. We are sure Porsche must have engineered a solution in their heads already because Porsche’s real formula for speed is rather simple.

Keep it light, nimble and have just enough thrust to launch it to the moon. Jokes apart, the new Porsche supercar will be powered by a rather small-capacity six-cylinder twin-turbocharged boxer engine with electric motors to assist. Starting with a carbon-fibre tub and a whole lot of aluminium and light-weight steel with more carbon fibre will keep it as light as possible while the top-notch engineering will ensure perfect balance.
