The P-car should still edge it, but I'd bet it's down to around 12 seconds or so difference which is pretty good for something with four seats and a trunk.
New M3 will likely break into the low 7:50 range...slightly quicker than the M5/M6.
There are 2 Ring times for the 991S posted in this thread. One at 7:38 and the other 7:44, so yes, again, this car is right in the high 7:3X to low 7:4X range. Something no other car with even close to 400 hp has been able to accomplish. Either way, its a good 20-25 seconds faster than our e9X m3s and faster than any production BMW...closest being the m3 GTS at 7:48.
Even the new M3 coming within 12 seconds is a huge way off...but again different cars for different purposes. I doubt the new C63, rs4, etc or the likes will match it.
