7:12.7

This is not the time of day. Nor is it a chapter and verse. It is not a ratio.

 

It is unit of measurement, however. To be exact, it is seven minutes, 12.7 seconds.

 

This is the lap time of a 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 on the Nurburgring’s legendary Nordschleife course. It bested the previous 911 GT3 by 12.3 seconds on one of the challenging and dangerous road courses in the world.

 

Why is this important? The Nordschleife is a measurement onto itself. To master and conquer this grueling and lengthy road course is to master the world. To do so in a time that is impossible for the average motorsports enthusiast to meet is beyond astonishing.

 

It also speaks to a single truth: Driving a 2018 Porsche 911 GT3 is one of the ultimate pleasures one can have. Its 500 horsepower naturally-aspirated flat-six engine has more power available at the right rev zones. This version was equipped with the seven-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission wearing Michelin Sport Cup 2 N1 tires.

 

Owning one is the next step. Our specialists at Porsche South Bay will facilitate a purchase of a new 911 GT3 for either street or track use. You can actually use it at the nearby Porsche Experience Center in Carson.
