Using specially developed MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the new Porsche Panamera set a new lap record for “super sports cars” by capturing 20,832 minutes and 7 seconds on the 29,81 kilometer Germany Nurburgring Nordschleife track.


Offering safety, comfort and high performance to its users, Michelin, the world's largest tire manufacturer, helped the new Porsche Panamera set a new tour record at Germany's Nurburgring Nordschleife track. Using specially developed MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires, the new Porsche Panamera captured 20,832 minutes 7 seconds on the 29,81-kilometer race track, setting a new lap record for “executive cars”.

“The improved lateral dynamics of the car and the increased traction level of the new Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires have had a significant impact on Schwedenkreuz,” says Porsche test driver Lars Kern. Here I managed to reach cornering speeds that I would not have thought possible with the Panamera before, ”he said.

Durability, handling and safety in one

During the joint production of Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires by Michelin and Porsche engineers, the tires have been optimized and designed to suit Porsche's requirements in the new Panamera. As a result, tires have been developed that both offer very high traction levels, consistent performance and excellent front / rear stability, and that specifically comply with European regulations on rolling resistance (R117-2).

MICHELIN Pilot Sport Cup 918 tires, which are currently fitted as original equipment to numerous class-leading cars manufactured by the German manufacturer, including the 4 Spyder, Cayman GT911, 3 GT3 and GT911 RS and 2 GT2 RS, use technologies developed for the highest levels of motorsport. These technologies are put at the service of road drivers, enabling users to benefit from high-level durability, traction, handling and safety levels with multi-component technology and body designs.
