The lap time difference between the two derivatives could hardly be greater. After all, the next-gen model we have here is a Carrera (S), while the 2RS MR is the quickest 991.2 out there - the Manthey Racing-massaged Rennsport Neunelfer currently holds the record for the quickest street-legal car on the Green Hell, remember?

Sure, the Porsche-owned Manthey Racing crew only brought a few chassis and aero tweaks to the 700 horsepower Neunelfer, but these shaved the 6:47.3 Ring number of the GT2 RS by a whopping seven seconds.

The footage was captured earlier this month, with the Ring having closed its gates for the 2018 season meanwhile. And yes, this means that the 911 GT2 RS can safely hold on to its record, at least until the 2019 season kicks off.

As for the 2020 Porsche 911, this is expected to debut at the end of the month, via the Los Angeles Motor Show.

And while the US event will likely bring us the Carrera S version, we'll remind you that other 992-generation derivatives have already been spied in production trim. And yes, the design clues are serious.

We're referring to the 2020 Porsche 911 Turbo and the 2020 Porsche 911 GT3 and both are expected to come to the world next year.

Note that while you can compare the way in which the said Neunelfer handle the Brunnchen 2 bend at the 1:04 point of the clip below, the rest of the video is also enticing, since you'll get to see goodies like the Porsche Taycan doing their thing on the infamous German track.
