It beat not only the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, but the Radical SR8 LM, too.
The brand new Porsche 911 GT2 RS recorded a Nordschleife lap time of 6:47.03.
That's about 5 seconds faster than the Lamborghini Huracan Performante, the previous record holder.
The Lambo was also about 5 seconds faster than the previous record holder, the Porsche 918 Spyder.
The GT2 RS also beat the track-only Radical SR8 LM, making it the fastest street-legal car around the 'Ring.
With 700 horsepower on tap, the GT2 RS beat the Lambo's time in its very first try.
The results exceeded even Porsche's own expectations.
May the battle for the 'Ring record continue!
