Well, the F10 M5 time is indeed speculation, and it's actually been taken off the Wikipedia page that records Nurburgring times - probably as it wasn't possible to verify it. I do expect the F10 M5 will be very quick, and I look forward to seeing something with a little more provenance. It's possible that Porsche is holding back on the Turbo S time for that reason. These things matter to some.

And it's hardly a surprise that the 4S is inferior to the Turbo, but that wasn't the topic of the thread, which compares the 550 to the 4S!
