Porsche Taycan Is The Fastest Four Door EV To Lap The NurburgringPosted on: August 27, 2019, by : Anindita Ghosh
Porsche has set a new record for four-door, all-electric sports cars on the 20.6-kilometre Nurburgring-Nordschleife course. It was a pre-series Taycan, and test driver Lars Kern conquered the legendary track, in seven minutes and 42 seconds. We already told you about the 24 hours test that the Porsche Taycan conquered at the Nardo high-speed track. The electric sports car covered a distance of 3425 km and that too in sizzling temperatures and the speed was between 195 and 215 kmph. The prototype would only pause for quick charging stops and driver changes.
Stefan Weckbach, Vice President Product Line Taycan said, “Our electric sports car demonstrated the reproducibility of its performance as part of a strenuous test involving 26 successive acceleration runs from zero to 200 kmph. Then it completed 3,425 kilometres within 24 hours in Nardo and now the record at the Nurburgring-Nordschleife. Numerous factors contribute to this performance and the efficiency of the powertrain, also at high speeds. These include the chassis systems that react within a fraction of a second as well as the outstanding aerodynamics.
