    Re: NBR lap times

    Trip,
    M3 CSL 7.50min time was achived by Horst von Saurma for Sport Auto Supertest! It is the same guy who achived 7.54min in 997tt...
    BTW, curve speed of M3 CSL was much higher then the one on 997tt.

    One FACT-M3 CSL used more agressive Michelin CUP tires then the one on 997tt.

    Re: NBR lap times

    Ok, it just seems that with so much more power the Turbo would eat up the difference of turn speed on the straights.

    But it did not. The old CSL is faster on the Ring, even with 360 HP and mediocre brakes. Plus it has a trunk, four adult seats and costs less than half the amount of a 997 TT.

    Re: NBR lap times

    Call me naive, blind, or just plain biased but my bet is on the same day with the optimal tires the TT would beat the CSL in a race around the Ring.

    Re: NBR lap times

    The purpose of the Sport Auto tests is to establish the most credible comparison between cars, using the same driver, same track and in similar conditions. The time advantage of the old Cup tyres compared to the new Cups has not been firmly established, but it is minimal.

    The 997 TT should (in theory) be faster than an old CSL, but it is (in fact) slower around the Ring.
