VIDEO: Did you know there’s a new Nordschleife TRAILER record?

Sit down, grab a coffee, and I’ll try to make this simple. There’s now a laptime benchmark for TOWING A TRAILER around the Nuerburgring Nordschleife. Continue reading VIDEO: Did you know there’s a new Nordschleife TRAILER record?

LUDICROUS 6m47.25 Porsche GT2RS 991 onboard video online

This is the fastest street-legal, almost mass production car you’ve ever seen lap the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

It’s the Porsche GT2RS and not only does it hit ridiculous speeds (293kmh before SX, 313kmh on DH!) but it also corners like a demon rollercoaster on titanium rails.

You. Must. Watch. This. Video.

Porsche 991 GT2RS goes sub-7, is on course for a new Nürburgring Nordschleife record

Standing at T13, the conditions tonight at the Nordschleife are perfect for a lap record. Cool air, dry surface, just a hint of sunshine peeking through the stormy clouds.

Porsche booked two full evenings just for laptiming this week; Tuesday and Wednesday. Yesterday the weather was much cooler, and the track a bit slippery. Locals reported laptimes of over 7-minutes.

VIDEO: Manthey GT3RS 991 does a very real 7m09s lap of the Nürburgring 

Before the internet is set ablaze by the new 991 GT2RS doing a ridiculous laptime with a factory driver, and tyres hand-delivered from Clermont-Ferrand, I just wanted to share this latest SportAuto video.

It’s magazine road tester Christian Gebhardt going hell for leather in the Manthey-modded, ex-factory test mule 991 GT3RS.

And it’s awesome.

Now back to work you slackers, it’s still 8 hours ’til the weekend!

Porsche’s soon-to-be-officially-acknowledged 991-shaped GT2 is still pounding out the laps at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.

The weather is utterly fantastic right now, though with track temperatures hitting nearly 50ºC at times, laptimes are not exactly at the top of the priority list. Continue reading More Porsche 991 GT2 photos

Second-gen Porsche 991 GT3 edges closer to release

August is here, the weather is glorious, and every session of terroristenfahrten (public driving) is crazy busy, and crazy, well, just crazy!

And thanks to the statistically better weather, the industry pool can get a little bit more interesting too. More supercars appear, and they’re driving faster than ever. Continue reading Second-gen Porsche 991 GT3 edges closer to release

VIDEO: Bikers barely avoid spinning Porsche

It’s all fun and games until somebody hits the grass. And when this Porsche 911 hits the grass at the outside of Metzgesfeld, you’d be forgiven for thinking it was all over.

I certainly expected the Porker to hit the barrier pretty hard. Luckily for him, the ground was dry enough to allow just enough friction for the car to change direction.

Video below:

RANT: Stop bullsh***ing us with your Nürburgring Laptimes

Sit down, get a cup of tea (or coffee, if you’re a heathen) and get ready. Because I need to get something off my chest.

Today’s rant has been precipitated by the arrival of a new video by Porsche, pushing their new luxury sedan, the Panamera. For the sake of completeness, I’ve included it below: Continue reading RANT: Stop bullsh***ing us with your Nürburgring Laptimes

VIDEO: Cayman GT4 Clubsport vs Ferrari 458 Challenge

It’s nearly time for VLN4, so let’s get warmed up with a scintillating lap onboard the Stilgut GetSpeed Cayman GT4 Clubsport, as resident pro-driver Moritz Kranz chases a (theoretically) far superior Ferrari 458 race car…

VIDEO: DIY Golf mk2 versus Harris in a 991 GT3.RS

Nigel Pinder’s Golf mk2 turbo is no stranger to the pages of BTG. The Pinderwagen, as BTG christened it, has turned up numerous times on DestinationNürburgring events. It’s a giant-slayer, and with its impressive power-to-weight ratio and strong aeros, this little Golf can help keep any legendary supercar honest.

And supercars don’t get any more legendary than the newest 991 GT3.RS, piloted by no less than Chris Harris!
