There’s a 911 version for everyone, starting with the midlife crisis 911 Carrera Cabriolet, all the way to the ultimate car enthusiast’s toy, the GT3. While we would be delighted to spend out midlife crisis driving an open-top 911, our topic today is the 911 Turbo S, which in the hands of Autobild Sportscars managed to set a new record for the fastest production car around the Sachsenring. The record laptime has a duration of 1:32.51 and can be seen after the jump.
This tremendous laptime was achieved in an Autobild Sportscars comparison test that also included the Audi R8 V10 Plus, the BMW M6 Competition Package and the Nissan GT-R and yielded some more interesting results. The 0 – 100 km/h time for the very same 911 Turbo S was just 2.8 seconds, making this the second fastest to 100 km/h car ever to be tested from AB Sportscars, after the Ruf 997 Turbo PDK with 2.72 seconds. It’s the fifth fastest car ever tested by AB Sportscars around the Sachsenring test track, too and all this was achieved on regular Pirelli P Zero tyres, unlike the previous record of 1:33.51 Porsche 911 GT2 RS (997.2) and Walter Röhrl behind the steering wheel, which was achieved on semi-slicks!
This is undeniably some great results for the 911 Turbo S, that prove that all the latest technologies introduced by Porsche, features like rear-wheel steering and active aerodynamics, do have a vast effect on performance. Don’t miss the video, so click “more” and watch in HD!
