Nissan Offer Porsche Proof and Driving Tips

October 9, 2008

In another statement by Nissan today they have officially gone on the record to defend the 7 minute 29 laptime recorded earlier in the year by the Nissan GT-R at Nurburgring. Porsche had recently called into doubt the laptime saying it could not replicate it in their own testing. Offering proof in the form of the actual tires and video footage from the laptime.

“It is clear that there are some important facts that were not accurately represented,”

Nissan go on to say that the GT-R used in the official laptime was actually at a disadvantage due to up to 50 kilograms of testing equipment along for the ride. Offering Porsche some driver training lessons if they want to give it another try.

Either way this is turning into a pretty big drama and I’ve got my popcorn ready. I’ve had the above photo of the tires for a few months I just haven’t really been bothered to post them due to the lousy phone cam photo quality. It wont settle the argument either way but maybe it’s enough to stoke the fire.
