This Porsche completes a lap of the Nurburgring in off-road mode

This Porsche 911 completed a lap of the Nurburgring using a very unusual driving method.

This Porsche 911 Dakar has just completed a lap of the Nürburgring circuit in an unconventional way. It is clear that this model can easily roll on surfaces reserved for all-terrain vehicles. It was also designed as the worthy successor to the Porsche 953 which won the Paris-Dakar in 1984.

However, what about his performance on the circuit ? The pilot had no intention of breaking any particular record. He completed the lap with a time of 7:39:40.

This Porsche 911 Dakar launches on the Nürburgring circuit… without respecting the route

The particularity of the lap completed by this Porsche 911 Dakar lies in the way in which the driving was carried out. The pilot didn’t really worry about it: he didn’t not following the route of the famous German circuit.

In short, was it possible to do a lap of the Nurburgring with a Porsche 911 Dakar cutting by shortcuts. Obviously, this is indeed the case.
