This is not the most scientific comparison as Auto Express does not use a pro driver and does not give us a section breakdown but provides a final laptime while the driver is talking to the camera during the whole lap. PorscheBoost is not a big fan of these types of laptime comparisons (how many laps were tried in each? just one?) but ultimately the result is the cars being closely matched on this fairly small/tight track with the Porsche 991 C4S edging out the R8 with a 1:11.8 laptime to the R8's 1:20.0.
2/10's is very, very close. But the Porsche is lapping faster with a smaller 6-cylinder motor versus the R8's V8 rated at more horsepower and having the lower base price. Something to consider.
