Porsche Smashes Lamborghini's Nurburgring Lap Record?

After having the production car Nurburgring record stolen by Lamborghini back in March, Porsche has been on the hunt to reclaim the title. There are rumors the 911 GT2 RS lapped the Nurburgring circuit in under seven minutes... on the first attempt no less.

A claimed 6m54s lap ‘or less’ could beat the Lamborghini Huracan Performante’s much-disputed, much despised 6m52s effort. The GT2 RS makes do with rear-wheel drive and 700hp. The fastest time for a rear-wheel-drive car is the 7:01.3 set by a Dodge Viper ACR.
Test driver and former F1 star Mark Webber leaked near the GT2's reveal that it hit 208 miles per hour on the Nurburgring, which is a higher top speed than the Lamborghini Huracan Performante ever reached during its 6:52 lap. Until an official lap time is released, however, everyone will continue to speculate whether or not Porsche can beat Lamborghini.
