As I said earlier, it's really tough to take these Ring laps seriously as the conditions vary so much, as do tires etc. After the lap every person hangs the cars reputation on the lap time, which is absolutely silly. I understand they are supposed to use the OEM tires, but slap a set of sticky 80 rated GT2 or GT3 Porker tires on there and all of the sudden the lap drops a TON. So in essence the laps don't mean much! Let them ALL run on the same tires on the same day and then we'd get a better picture of the truth. But, give credit to the marketing departments hard work...judging from this thread, it looks like it's working.
Btw, I am more impressed that it bettered the Panamera Turbo's time...that is borderline unbelievable. Mighty impressive.
