Horst von Saurma, the chief editor of German car rag "Sport Auto," drove a Carrera GT around the famous North Circuit in 7:32:44, a new record for the 22.6 km (about 14 miles) loop for a production road-going vehicle. The 612-hp Porsche averaged 164 km/hr (just over 100 mph), and its time is reportedly close to what can be achieved by purebred race machines. Way to go, Horst.

Personal anecdote: I saw my first Carrera GT in person yesterday, parallel parked in a fairly bustling square in Providence, RI. This is what is known as a bold move, considering the shabby state of most motorists' parallel parking skills.
