Porsche recently released a video of their new Porsche Taycan at the Nurburgring, Porsche set a new EV record and now it would appear that Tesla may have beaten it. Tesla apparently did it in a time of 7 minutes 23 seconds, 19 seconds faster than the Porsche
According to a recent report by Autoblog Tesla managed to beat the Porsche time, although there are apparently some caveats with this news. The Tesla that was used was a modified version of the car
Tesla apparently did not use stock tires and a stock setup where as the Porsche had summer stock tires on and it was actually their Taycan Turbo that set the record not their more powerful Turbo S model.
Porsche has apparently suggested that it they send their Turbo S model around the track at the Nurburgring it may beat the Tesla’s time. It will be interesting to see how this develops, we suspect we may here more from both Tesla and Porsche about this in the future.
