It just debuted, and it's already breaking records.
Well, that was fast. Literally.
The 2017 Porsche Panamera just debuted, and it's already been crowned the fastest luxury sedan to lap the 'Ring. Porsche released the video you see here, showing its new four-door sedan (or hatchback, depending how you classify things) running the Nordschleife in a scant 7 minutes and 38 seconds – in other words, super-duper fast. That's for the Panamera Turbo, of course, but know that 7:38 is the same time as the Lexus LFA and Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera. Damn.
There's not much more to say except that this is a seriously impressive feat, especially considering the Panamera's size and weight. Still, Porsche certainly knows how to build a sports car, and anyone who doubted the serious performance of the Panamera Turbo only need watch the video above.
