http://www.evo.co.uk/news/evonews/213513/porsche_gt2_ring_time.html "Porsche's new 911 GT2 has lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in an astonishing 7min 33sec in the hands of Horst von Saurma, chief road tester at Germany's Sport Auto magazine. The time is just one second slower than von Saurma recorded for the Carrera GT. Porsche, on the other hand, claims that the GT2 is five seconds a lap faster than the CGT (see evo 111), preferring Walter Röhrl's slightly faster 7min 32sec time in the flagship 911 and a correspondingly slower time for the Carrera GT. Confusing stuff, but whichever set of figures you choose to look at, the GT2 is still bloody quick." Great time. Still expecting better though..

The 1996 911 GT1 is faster yet I can find no mention of it's lap time at the ring other than race lap times which don't count. Porsche made production models of this car certifiable for road use.

The asterisk is right beside the time, not the weight.

The Cobalt SS is a newer turbo charged FWD 2 door coupe. I think it will be released next year. The older supercharged Cobalt SS is being replaced. I believe this car holds the stock FWD record at the ring.

"the nurburgring is not in the united states. " lol i know that, i was wondering about the 1996 911 GT1. after you made the post about i asked a guy i know that is pretty into porsches if he had heard of it and he told me he had seen a "few". that was an instant bullshit indicator because i had never heard of even one of them being brought over to the states.

The 911 gt-1 won it's class in it's first race and came in second overall at LeMans that year while coming in second overall the next year. The GT-1 is rare but there are people who have registered them and drive them on the street since it was necessary to make road car examples in order to be legal for the class.....most likely in europe, though. It won overall in 1998 but porsche had to depart from the basic 911 design to do so but it was still licensable for street driving and you can buy a street driven example below but it will cost you near a million. http://www.supercarclassifieds.com/product_detail.cfm?item__code=501

They cost less than 20 grand in Australia so that is awesome bang for the buck. Only 100 were sold from dealers, but many have since been imported from Japan. I recently read in a magazine that the top 3 fastest radial tyred drag cars in the world are all R32 GTRs. Not sure how reliable this is, but in Australia, we have quite a few that run 8 second quarter miles. The all wheel drive system gives it awesome traction for launches, and the RB26DETT (put in a mustang at the end of Fast and Furious Tokyo Drift) is an fantastic engine.
