    Confirmed - Walter Roehrl and the 997 Carrera S

    Just got confirmation for the 7 min. 59 sec. time Walter Roehrl achieved on the Nuerburgring Nordschleife in a 997 Carrera S with 20 mm chassis AND chrono sport package. YES, the chrono sport package decreases shifting/throttle response time and improves the track time.
    Only two seconds slowlier than the time Walter Roehrl achieved in a GT3 MkI.
    We're talking about a track with a length of more than 20 km.

    Re: Confirmed - Walter Roehrl and the 997 Carrera S

    That is a great time, but I think Walter's time was 7:56 (3 seconds faster) in the GT3 MkI, no?

    Re: Confirmed - Walter Roehrl and the 997 Carrera S

    Wow, I know there are some here that only post negative remarks, but please try and refrain from the comments of, "but track times don't reflect real world driving" or any of the other tired remarks. I am impressed and that would sway me towards an S with those options over a regular Carrera. If only I was in such a predicament. Anyway, If you are one of the negative guys here, chances are you probably own some time of sports car, and are just jealous of this amazing performance. My suggestion if you want real world practicality, sell your sports car, and buy a Smart, or here in the states, a Focus.

    I suppose I could give you a pass this once No, one second is not alot over an 8 minute lap
