Official: 918 Hybrid fastest Porsche ever around the Nürburgring

Porsche has confirmed how quickly its upcoming 918 Spyder can go around the famed Nürburgring in Germany. The 770-horsepower hybrid supercar has lapped the 'Ring in seven minutes and 14 seconds.

The official lap time for the 918 Spyder is among the fastest for a road legal car at the Nurburgring's northern circuit, undercutting the fastest time of its predecessor, the Carrera GT, achieved back in 2004 by some 18 seconds making it the fastest Porsche yet around the Nürburgring.

Unfortunately, Porsche didn't provide the tenths of a second needed to determine exactly where the 918 Spyder falls on the unofficial list of production car lap times for the 'Ring, but even without that, we can say that it's much faster than Pagani Zonda F (7:24.44), is neck and neck with the Lexus LFA Nürburgring Package (7:14:64) and is also faster than the road-legal Formula Ford (7:22)
