The Porsche Taycan has set a new record, this time at the Nürburgring Nordschleife.
A pilot Lars Kern covered the legendary 12.8 mi (20.6 km) long Green Hell race track in 7 minutes and 42 seconds.
The Porsche Taycan easily passed three endurance tests. The first test included 26 consecutive accelerations from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h). The average speed-up time was less than 10 seconds, with an interval of just 0.8 seconds between the fastest and slowest times.
Later the Taycan could cover 2,128 miles (3,425 km) of the Nardo highway in Italy in 24 hours at speeds from 121 to 134 mph (195-215 km/h).
The Nürburgring test is the third one.
The main task of all the tests is to determine the electrical energy necessary for thermal regulation, which is important for passing tracks in a right time.
What helped the Porsche Taycan successfully overcome challenges?
- The car has two highly efficient electric motors on the front and rear axles and all-wheel drive.
- Porsche‘s innovative integrated 4D chassis control system analyzes and synchronizes all chassis functions in real time. It includes an adaptive air suspension (Porsche Active Suspension Management), an electromechanical anti-roll system (PDCC Sport) and a torque vectoring system (PTV Plus). The car also has rear axle steering and 21-inch wheels.
- The Porsche Taycan is the first mass-production model operating at 800 W.
- The car’s control modes enable convenient use of all the functions.
