Porsche Taycan Turbo S reclaims EV Nürburgring Record

The Porsche Taycan Turbo S has reclaimed its title as the fastest EV around the Nürburgring Ring.

In the video that you can see below, you can see the Porsche Taycan Turbo S take on the infamous 20.832 km track. A Tesla Model S Plaid held the previous EV record.

However, the Porsche broke the record and finished the historic track in 7.33.35 seconds. That is a full two seconds ahead of the Tesla Model S Plaid time of 7.35.579.

In accomplishing the feat, the Taycan Turbo S had a new performance kit from Porsche installed along with the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control.

In addition, as is required by the Nürburgring, the vehicle also had a roll cage and racing seats.

However, except for the safety equipment, the vehicle was a standard production vehicle and weighed the same as the production car.

Porsche development driver Lars Kern, who knows the track well, completed the lap.

In addition to the EV title, he currently holds the following records at the track:

  • The fastest SUV lap (Porsche Cayenne Turbo GT)
  • The fastest lap with an executive car (Porsche Panamera Turbo); and
  • The Nürburgring record for the fastest lap (Porsche 911 GT2 RS (MR) (991.).

The Nürburgring has a couple of different lengths, but for the EV fastest lap, the time is always taken on the 20.832 km track.

As when the Taycan previously held the record, we have to assume that Tesla will take another crack at the title in the next few months.
