Porsche had the electric car speed record on Nürburgring, one of the world’s most demanding tracks. According to official records, Porsche Taycan Turbo S, using the record for 7 minutes and 42 seconds, Porsche’s record was passed to Tesla, according to an unofficial record.
Nürburgring is one of the longest and most challenging tracks in the world. The race track, which has hosted many races, is generally open to guests for people touring with their cars, but occasionally car manufacturers can opt for the Nürburgring track to push the limits of their vehicles and make speed trials.
Porsche, one of these car companies, drove the electric car to the Nürburgring circuit to push the limits of the Taycan Turbo S. Completing the track in 7 minutes and 42 seconds, Taycan Turbo S won the title of Nürburgring’s fastest electric car. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind when talking about electric cars Tesla could not be expected to stay away from this competition and the company, the Model S car on the runway defied Taycan Turbo S.
According to unofficial records, the new record belongs to the Tesla Model S with 7 minutes and 23 seconds:
According to allegations, Tesla Model S finished the track as early as 20 seconds and was able to take Porsche’s record. The reason we call this record a claim is that no source has officially kept the track completion time. The claims came not only from one source but also from two sources.
Although the timings are not officially published, the fact that the two sources provide the same information reinforces the claim. The first source is “Stefan Baldauf”, who shoots spy on the track. Another source is the German-based magazine Auto Motor und Sport. The record cannot go further than just one claim, as both sources make their own timing.
