New Porsche Taycan Beats Tesla Model S Plaid with Lap Record of 7:07 at Nürburgring

Porsche has just set a new standard for high-performance electric sedans with a ‘pre-series Taycan’, beating the Tesla Model S Plaid by 17 seconds.

Porsche will soon launch a new super-performance electric Taycan, and it just set a record at the Nürburgring. So excited about this achievement, the car manufacturer from Stuttgart has not even confirmed the name or performance details of the car. They just tell us about time. A ‘pre-series Taycan’ lapped the track in just 7:07.55. This makes it the fastest electric Porsche ever around this legendary racetrack. It also impressively beat the previous time of the Tesla Model S Plaid, which was 7:25.231, with a difference of up to 17.681 seconds.

The new Taycan’s time is 26 seconds faster than the current Taycan Turbo S and close to the Rimac Nevera’s time of 7:05.298. Porsche has made minor adjustments to make it safer and more convenient on the track such as installing racing seats and a caged cage.

According to Porsche, the video of this drive will be released in mid-March. This will presumably coincide with information about the car as well as a refresh for the entire Taycan line.

There are many rumors about this new sedan. Likely to be called the Taycan Turbo GT, there are rumors of a three-motor powertrain with around 1,000 horsepower. An extra motor on the rear axle not only helps with better heat management but also uses advanced traction control techniques.

It’s unclear whether the new car will be equipped with a new battery, but a change in battery cell chemistry or design to support sustained high currents may be necessary if the Taycan Turbo’s battery S cannot respond. Silicon carbide inverters from Silicon could also be a possible change, as Porsche has said it is applying the technology to the rear axle of the new electric Macan. This change will allow more efficient operation at the high sustained currents that racetracks like the Nürburgring require.

Another important part of this record is its repeat record. Porsche says test driver Lars Kern measured the accuracy of multiple laps, all of which were nearly identical. It should be noted that the long and steep track of the Nürburgring is an exceptional test for electric powertrains. The heat-generating currents are maintained for only a few seconds in everyday driving but are held continuously on the track. Battery cells are designed to deliver energy and power density that are challenged to the absolute limit. It is with great excitement that we await the launch of this new system.
