BMW M3 Ring Taxi Driver Overtakes Porsche Cayman GT4 Like a Pro

Many enthusiasts who are not familiar with Nordschleife matters might expect Ring Taxi drivers to never enter maximum attack mode. After all, when one does so many laps of the Nordschleife, the need for velocity can get diluted, right?

Wrong - the people who make the Ring Taxi world go round don't trade their driving shoes for chauffeur gloves and we've got the video to prove it.

The piece of footage at the bottom of the page allows us to see a totally random Ring episode that shows a Nurburgring cabbie going all out. The car, a BMW M3, passes a Porsche Cayman GT4 as if the latter were a base Cayman fitted with the 240 hp two-liter turbo.

We can clearly see the hunter stalking its big-winged pray and making its move on the 911 GT3 suspension-using mid-engine Porsche just as the latter was about to enter a bend.

The M3 passes legally (read: on the left side) and while the driver does have to steer-compensate for the overly generous entry speed required by the maneuver, the shenanigan remains delicious.

Sure, the stick shift-gifted Porsche's driver wasn't pushing things to the limit, but we wasn't stuck in first gear, either - for the record, the current M3 needs 7:52 to get round the Nordschleife, while the Porsche Cayman GT4, when manhandled correctly, can complete the task a full 12 seconds quicker.

However, when it comes to such track shenanigans, we're always greedy, so we'd like to see more. No, we're not talking about more aggressive driving, as that might be unsafe.

Instead, we're referring to another kind of Ring Taxi. You know, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS we showed you earlier this year. And that's a 7:20 car.
P.S.: If you happen to be in a hurry, you can jump to the 2:05 point for the passing action mentioned above.
