Porsche 911 GT3 RS Claims 7:33 'Ring Run, Still Doesn't Beat GT-R

When the Porsche 911 GT3 RS debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show, it looked every bit the obnoxious track-day racer. Apparently it can turn a wheel too, posting a scorching 7:33 time around the Nürburgring. Still no GT-R 7:26.7.

Despite the six second gap between what this GT3 RS did and the GT-R has done (not to mention the Corvette ZR1's 7:26.4), the latest effort by Porsche still has some wiggle room. This run was made in traffic and judging by the telematics pulled from the car, there's at least another three seconds available with a clean run. The 450 HP, fully caged and stripped Porsche might not have been able to win this round of the Porsche-Nissan automaker slap fight, but it looked way better doing it. [Evo.co.uk]
