Report: 2010 Porsche Turbo Cuts 10 Seconds Off Nrburgring Time
Porsche’s updated 2010 911 Turbo model has cut an impressive 10 seconds off its predecessor’s Nürburgring lap time. The significantly revised sports car can now boast a 7:39 lap time around Germany’s most famous race track.
Unfortunately for Porsche, this time is still more than 10 seconds away from the car’s Japanese rival, the Nissan GT-R, which has managed a 7:27.56 time. Both the Japanese and German sports cars have yet to unseat either of their American competitors, with the Corvette ZR1 managing a 7:26.4, while the Dodge Viper ACR boasts a 7:22.1 lap time.
The 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo has a long list of upgrades which includes an all-new, larger 3.8-liter engine that makes 500hp and is mated to an impressive 7-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission. Porsche claims the car can hit 60 mph in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 194 mph.
