The 7:40 was a factory estimate from Porsche reported in Motortrend.

If they truly wanted the most "apples to apples" comparison they should have used factory driver time vs. factory driver time. That is 7:38 vs. 7:49. All that being said I think everyone knows my skepticism on the 7:38 time. Of course we all saw it but what does it really mean.
That's still not apples to apples comparison. You need to have one independent driver to test both cars in the same condition in the same day with the same tires.
