This is the one we’ve been waiting for. In order to prove the virility of their upcoming electric sedan, the Porsche Taycan has set a new ‘Ring record. Production will begin in a few weeks, so this is also a brilliant marketing move by Stuttgart. Their previous test at Nardo involved 26 consecutive runs from 0-186 mph, before running 2,128 miles in 24 hours. Development on the Taycan involved simulator runs of the historic track, and it gave engineers a rough idea of what to expect.
Nothing beats real-world experience, and driver Lars Kern did several laps of the 12.8-mile track. After some final tuning and a full charge, he lapped the Nürburgring-Nordschleife in 7:42. This makes it the fastest electric sedan to take on the Green Hell, and they have footage to prove it. While the Taycan is still in final development, our dealers have great offers on the new 992-Series 911. Click the link below to find yours after watching this blistering lap.
