Porsche Taycan Variant Demolishes Tesla’s EV ‘Ring Record

It might seem like Porsche would be satisfied with the current lineup of the Taycan, which already includes multiple variants, from the basic model to the powerful Turbo S. With two different body styles to choose from, the possibilities for performance and style seem endless.

But the German automaker has been consistently pushing the performance boundaries, maintaining a “there’s always room for improvement” philosophy. This commitment to continuous improvement has kept Porsche fans and car enthusiasts eagerly anticipating what’s next.

While the Turbo S models already offer impressive performance, Porsche saw the potential for a higher-performance variant, similar to the GT4, GT3, and GT2 models. Although specifics on this new Taycan variant are still under wraps, there are speculations that it might be called the “Turbo GT.”

The Nürburgring Nordschleife Lap Time

On the surface, it’s just a number. But when put into context, it becomes clear that this achievement puts the upcoming Porsche Taycan variant in an elite category, on par with the automaker’s flagship 911 GT3 and GT3 RS models, and coming close to the sub-7-minute benchmark setters. It’s also nearly as quick as the relatively new Porsche 718 Cayman GT4 RS MR.

This is an image of a Porsche Taycan GT driving on the Nurburgring. The car has beaten the Porsche Taycan Turbo S time by 26 seconds and the Tesla Model S Plaid time by over 17 seconds. However, it was slightly slower than the Rimac Nevera, which holds the current electric vehicle (EV) track record.

The Porsche Taycan GT’s impressive performance is notable given its relatively lower cost and the fact that it can accommodate up to five people.
