The video is dated 08/28/12.That is an old video from 2011. When that came out, almost 4 years ago, there was some buzz about it.
Come about May, when the 991.2S comes out, you can certainly expect it to be faster than any current Z28. You got to remember you are comparing a four year old car with a new one.
The early runs were in 2011. This one, from 9/11, was at 7:40. New Porsche 911/991 Laps Nurburgring In 7 Min. 40 Sec; 13 Seconds Faster Than Predecessor | car News @ Top Speed This caused a big stir as it was just as fast as a 997GT3.The video is dated 08/28/12.
And I'm not following you. The 2013 991 IS the current version of the 911. Has there been some significant upgrades to the 991 S since 2013?
And not to bust your chops, but as is the habit of Porsche, the 991 video was not even a full lap- they started the clocks at the end of the straight where the GP track exit is, and then stopped the clocks at the beginning of it. If it had been a full lap, it would have been even slower.
Thank you. Without your help, I would have never been able to figure this on my own. My experience as an expert-licensed road racer and road racing instructor, along with my experience actually having driven the Nurburgring Norschleife at speed in a competent automobile, was simply not enough for me to be able to figure this out on my own, lol.Totally different tires between the Chevy and the Porsche, one being barely street legal and most likely useless for DD and the other just like any other summer tires, etc
I hope that helped some in understanding the relevant difference. No doubt that Chevy is playing harder and there is no doubt that the Z06 is supposed to be very quick.
That part is very true. Otherwise, youtube would not be full of videos of decrepit Honda Civics and old VW Golfs passing late-model Ferraris, GT3 RS 911s, and Ariel Atoms on the Nurburgring Nordschleife.This is all academic exercise anyway. Unless your name is Mr. Roehl or Mr. Kluck or Mr. Webber, none of us will ever come close to this having any meaning other than for those that argue about such things at the bar.
