The automaker may not be the overall king of speed, but they can still hold their own. Their 911 GT2 RS MR recently set a new record for the fastest street-legal car at Nürburgring-Nordschleife, clocking in at 6:40.3.
The vehicle features heavy modification from Manthey-Racing. That's where the MR part of its name comes from. The exact modifications made to the vehicle have been kept a secret, most likely to protect their record status. But they did reveal that it's primarily based on a new performance kit by Manthey-Racing.
The record attempt was achieved by driver and development engineer Lars Kern, who spoke about the kit.
"The balance of the car is also very good with the new package. I did not have to take any great risks to be fast."
Now that this has been accomplished, Porsche will undoubtedly start working towards the next record. The question is: which?
