Rumor has it that everytime a Porsche's Nurburgring lap record is beaten, a kitten dies.
Oh-kay, not really.
But if there's one thing that Porsche lives for, it's those damn lap times on the world famous track in Germany. Just a theory but I think some of the employees' lives in Stuttgart depend on it. I am kidding, again.
In all seriousness, while I JUST named the Porsche 911 my favorite car in 2012, I have a bit of a secret to admit. While I love the Carrera 2 S, I'm dying to see the GT3. I mean, it is just a more hardcore version of the one I think is best anyhow -- naturally aspirated power being sent to the rear wheels, yay!
Thankfully someone was at the Nurburgring when some engineers were absolutely caning it around the track. It has that lovely six-cylinder howl around the corners.
Even more intriguing was to see the all-new 911 Turbo in the same clip. Notice how much more reserved the Turbo is as it whispers -- relative to the GT3 -- past you? It may be reserved but from what we can tell, this Turbo is MOVING!
Take a look at the clip below and let us know WHICH 911 you're looking forward to!
Next generation Porsche 911 GT3 and a Turbo Type 991 driven very hard on the Track. Enjoy watching!
