A lap time on the Nurburgring’s Nordschleife is a unit of measurement.

It is an indicator of how fast a car can go on one of the most challenging and deadly courses in the world. The quest to be the fastest around The Ring is one that takes precise measurements and translates them into a benchmark.

Porsche has been driving The Ring for decades. They seek to get the best time around the Nordschleife. It is their way to ensure they built their cars to the specifications of their customers.

In the new 911 GT2 RS, they not only set a benchmark in the quest to be the fastest around The Ring. It was certified as a world record for a road-approved sports car.

That time was 6 minutes and 47.3 seconds.



In six-and-three-quarters minutes, a car can go around this tough 20.832 kilometer, 73-turn strip of Green Hell. Not just any car, but a Porsche. And, this is not just any Porsche…it is the new 911 GT2 RS.

This is why Porsche South Bay sells the cars and SUVs that we do. This is why it should be the destination for the next Porsche.

Salute to the unit of measurement that yielded the new benchmark for the new 911 GT2 RS!
