Walter Rohrl laps the 'Ring in a 997S

Good ol Walt took the 997 Carrera S around the Nurburgring for a few hot laps. Here are some 996 "best laps" for reference:

996 Turbo: 7 minutes, 56 seconds
996 GT3: 7 minutes, 54 seconds
996 Carrera 2: 8 minutes, 20 seconds

His up-to-date best lap in the 997 Carrera S?

7 minutes, 59 seconds.

That beats the previous Carrera by TWENTY ONE SECONDS.

According to EXCELLENCE, Rohrl "says he wasn't out to set an official record in the 997S - so he feels that there's probably another 2-3 seconds in the car as it sits."

That's pre-turbo, pre-racecar treatments... this car is already stiking me as something special.

Now, how do i get 80 large by this fall?

That's so weird, there's $80k in my bank account now but I'm getting a house. My wife freaks out every time I leave the house with the check book. Now I know why!

"Oh Bother," said Pooh, as he chambered another round.

Yeah that new 997 sure is something else. I just got invited by the local dealer to attend a cocktail party "for the exclusive reveal of the new porsche 911 carrera" next Saturday. I can't wait!
