After a period of flat calm following the speed limits introduced at the Nürburgring, the car manufacturers have become hard to beat lap times. After the battle of compact front-wheel-drive, it is Porsche who want to claim the record for vehicles with five doors with its new Panamera. The new Porsche Panamera will be presented in just a few hours, and you will be the first to learn. But before, Porsche wants to rekindle the atmosphere and with an enigmatic video we are in for records.
The Porsche Panamera second generation is about to be presented, built on a new platform, with a new V8 turbo.
The video does not tell us much. In classical blather of marketing, they speak of the courage it takes to beat a track record. Clearly recorded in the pit lane of the Nürburgring, four pilots climb to its inside – because it is still a car of four-seater – and go to the track, while shadows strategically located cover the bodywork of the sports saloon. If you can’t wait, we have already published its leak to the Internet, so I suggest that you go through this article to see the car naked.
But what’s record speaks Porsche? We believe that it is the record of vehicle five-door at the Nürburgring, believe it or not, is in the hands of the Honda Civic Type R with 7 minutes and 50 seconds. Because the Porsche Panamera is a car of five doors. If we talk about sedans traditional three volumes and four doors, the record would be the Alfa Romeo Giulia, with a time of 7 minutes and 39 seconds, achieved in September 2015, with tires of competition and with a drive that has generated some doubts.
Be that as it may, the best time recorded by the Porsche Panamera first generation has been of 7 minutes and 56 seconds, a unit with a Turbo and Walter Röhrl at the wheel. This record is from 2009, and will be easily exceeded. I like to think that Porsche has in its sights to Alfa Romeo, and with an evolution chassis and the propeller group, could exceed 7 minutes and 39 seconds of the Giulia. Among other weapons, will have a new chassis, much lighter, possibly using a platform MLB as amended.
in Addition, premiered a powerful engine 4.0 V8 twin-turbo 550 HP, of which we have already previewed some details after his presentation at the Vienna Engine Symposium. In a few hours we will know the new Porsche Panamera and you will have all the details in motor. I that you, I don’t miss it.
