A series production version of the new Porsche Panamera has completed a full lap of the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:29.81 minutes.
Driven by test driver Lars Kern, the lap time now stands as a new record in the “executive cars” category in the official ranking of Nurburgring GmbH.
Save for a racing seat and a safety cage, the record-breaking Panamera has been confirmed as a series production car by a notary public, despite sporting camouflage.
The Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres developed especially for the new Panamera and used for the record lap will be optionally available after the market launch.
The new Panamera is scheduled to premiere at the end of August.
