However, this does not make the Panamera the fastest four-door around the Green Hell as the title goes to the Jaguar XE SV Project 8, which lapped the 12.9-mile course with a time of 7:23.164 in 2019. But the Jag is in the midrange class, which includes cars such as the BMW 3-series and the Alfa Romeo Giulia. Another executive-class car, the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S, lapped the course in 7:30.11 in 2018. These lap times reflect the now official 12.94-mile course, which was mandated last year by the ‘Ring in order to set a record. Prior to that, some manufacturers would set times on a 12.8-mile lap.
