Of all the curves in the Nurburgring, none is more punishing than “The Carousel”. The banked corner is made of uneven sections of concrete that have seen the death of many lower spoilers. The shocks and springs are tested to full compression, which sends lesser cars into the catch fence. That’s why car spotters like to camp near the apex, in hopes of catching something new in action. Such was the case earlier today, when Supercarsfromeu filmed an angry Porsche 911 Turbo. The vents in the rear quarter panels are a dead giveaway and the cartoonish fender flares are attempting to keep massive tires within the body.
Europe has ridiculous noise laws, so the tires were louder than the tailpipes. Corvette engineers had to add a pair of improvised pipes to keep the ZR1 from being banned, so we have no idea how a twin-turbo flat six can be muffled. Hopefully, the next 911 Turbo S will be a slightly detuned 911 GT2, because 700 horsepower and 553 lb-ft along with AWD would be a fun ride. More power demands a wider tire, but how much is too much? Street legal tires have come a long way, but nothing beats R compound on a hot summer day.
