Just for comparo, all done by sport auto
GT3 RS 4.0 - 7:30
2011 GTR - 7:36
458 Italia - 7:38
991S - 7:44
Corvette ZR-1: 7:38
Lexus LFA: 7:38
Few others for comparison as well:
SLS AMG: 7:40
Ferrari F430 Scuderia: 7:40
Mercedes MacLaren SLR: 7:42
Lamborghini LP-670 Super veloce: 7:42
Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera: 7:46
Looks like it keeps up damn well (and better than some much higher hp cars) especially considering these were done on different days with different tires.
Considering the 991S has at least 100 hp less than all the other cars says a lot about the chasis and what its capable of so, again, it does keep up.
Let me repeat: There is no way a 991 Carrera S keeps up with any of those cars. You're cherry picking data. My GTR would absolutely destroy the 991 Carrera S in any condition.
If you compare manfacturers 'ring times it isn't even close. The ZR1 I believe is around 7:19, the GTR is around 7:24, LFA was 7:14 with 'ring package, etc.
Watch Tiff run them head to head:
Not. Even. Close.
