But come on, you shouldnt be surprised since it didnt make much sense for the new Porsche Panamera Turbo (7:38) to beat the Giulia Quadrifoglio’s time (7:39). Granted, ‘Ring numbers are as useful as chromed trimmed steering wheels but the competition and videos make it worth the silliness. Mmmm, supersedans!
