Which is "14 seconds faster than a Nissan GTR"
So Porsche want to have the fastest production car able to lap the Nurburgring race track too. They have managed to lap their latest motorsport derived GT3 model in 7 mins 40 sec, which is a properly fast lap time. But according to Autocar.co.uk, Porsche claims that their new GT3 is 14 seconds faster than the Nissan GTR. Porsche claim that they did not manage to lap a Nissan GTR - which they bought - any faster than 7mins 54 sec. They claim that Nissan simply isn't telling the truth about the state of tune of the car they used to get the 7 min 29.03 sec lap time. So it might be of no surprise if people's blood at Porsche began to boil when Nissan recently announced they have posted yet another lap time of 7 min 27.56 sec.

Nissan always manages to set pulses racing whenever they announce a new lap time of the Nurburgring racing circuit for its GTR supercar. Despite being a lot heavier and less powerful than its main rivals, it still manages to be a lot faster than them. Many people attribute this to the fact that it was built from the start to be the fastest car around the Nurburgring in its sector. They also say that its speed is thanks to a very well sorted all wheel drive system, superfast gearchanges, well judged gear ratios, sticky tyres, and overall stability.
