"King of the 'Ring" Automobile Magazine, Jan 2009, page 46 sidebar

Formula 1 driver Toshio Suzuki took the GT-R to 7:29 which takes the 911 turbo and the 911 GT2 to the sidelines.

"Nissan's chest thumping over this feat aggravated Porsche enought that the company conducted it's own test of the GT-R. After failing to get with 25 seconds of Suzuki's time, Porsche accused Nissan of using slicks on the Nordschliefe. Nissan responded by posting in-car video of it's record lap and photos of it's street tires.

And in a master stroke of passive-aggressive trash talking, it also offered Porsche free driver training."

And that is why my subscription to Automobile magazine got renewed to May of 2013.
