    Porsche 991 GT3 Hockenheim laptime puts it ahead of the 997 GT2 RS, Corvette ZR1, McLaren MP4-12C, and Ferrari 458 Italia

    Just in case for some reason you were not yet impressed with the new 9000 RPM, 3.8 liter, 475 horsepower, PDK equipped 991 GT3 the Hockenheim laptime results should be all that is necessary to sway you. How quick did it lap? 1:08.0. To put that in perspective the laptime is faster than the 997 GT2 RS, Ferrari 458 Italia, Lamborghini Aventador, McLaren MP4-12C, Porsche 997.2 GT3 RS 4.0, and the Corvette ZR1.

    The laptime comes from Porsche directly in the latest issue of Sport Auto Magazine (04/2013).

    If someone had $140k or more to spend on a performance car, I can't see why they would choose anything other than this.

    OMG - as we thought, this car is ridiculous... What an amazing car - I want one SO bad. Some of those cars are literally twice the price, and un-driveable day to day; Porsche FTW.
