Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h. c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, has once again landed an important public prize for its premium sports cars. Readers of the well-known monthly magazine “sport auto“ have voted two Porsche models as the sportiest cars: yesterday evening, the Porsche Boxster S was named as the best cabriolet in the up to € 80,000 EUR price category and the Porsche 911 GT2 as the best supersports car. The specialist “sport auto“ magazine has been holding this reader vote on the subject of “The sportiest cars” since 1980. Porsche has been the repeated winner of this public prize for 28 years, focusing on driving dynamics and sportiness.
The magazine, published by the Verlag Motorpresse Stuttgart, enjoys an excellent reputation for the so called “Supertest” among sports car aficionados. It subjects sports cars to the fastest and most stringent test in the industry on the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring. Because Porsche also considers the Nordschleife to be an important quality criterion for driving dynamics, sportiness and chassis set-up in development, Porsche vehicles regularly achieve the best lap times in their classes. As a result, “sport auto” editor in chief Horst von Saurma set a new fastest lap time in the Nordschleife supertest in September 2007 in a Porsche: at 7:33 minutes, the Porsche 911 GT2 set a new record that still stands today.
