Until very recently the Cadillac CTS-V was the fastest production four-door around the Nürburgring with a time of 7 minutes and 59.3 seconds as set in an automatic (!) CTS-V, piloted by former GM Performance Division chief John Heinricy. Not anymore.
German car mag SportAuto has reported that the new Porsche Panamera Turbo has eclipsed that record with a time of 7 minutes and 56 seconds. No problem when your brand new performance sedan is pushed by none other than motor racing legend and general superhuman Mr. Walter Röhrl. I’m not alluding that the CTS-V could beat the Panamera Turbo with Röhrl behind the wheel, I’m just saying that the man has mutant powers that enable him to rocket anything with four wheels ’round a track faster than nearly anyone else: car, horse buggy, shopping cart, you name it.
Congrats, Porsche. But how long can you hold the record on your home turf?
