2010 997 Turbo PDK

So Autoweek has a test of the 2010 997 Turbo with PDK. And it sounds awesome. Article here: http://www.autoweek.com/article/2009...IEWS/910139990

Two things jumped out, first is a 0-100 time of 7 seconds and the second is this quote:

"We don't want to get ourselves into a race for Nürburgring lap-time supremacy.The times we quote are not really representative because they are set on different days and in differing weather conditions" which is from August Achleitner, Porsche's head of passenger-car development. After the way they went after Nissan, that just made me laugh.

That N-ring time matches up what I was told last week. It will be interesting when someone finally does a comparison test between the Mk2 997 turbo and the GTR, hopefully that comparison happens on the N-ring.

P.S.
Smart move by porsche to put that little addition in when suggesting a lap time.
