"Through the fast corners and on the brakes, in particular, the GT3 RS is unbelievably close to our racing auto GT3 R", said factory racecar driver Kévin Estre, who set the blistering time. The new 911 GT3 RS now joins the 918 Spyder and 911 GT2 RS as the third production Porsche with a notarized lap time of under 7 seconds at the Nordschleife.

Porsche works driver Kevin Estre piloted the cracking lap, with development driver Lars Kern also sharing some of the driving.
