Porsche Taycan Turbo GT set a new Nürburgring Record: 7:07,55 Official Lap Time

Porsche’s electric powerhouse, the Taycan Turbo GT, equipped with the Weissach package, has shattered records on the iconic Nürburgring Nordschleife, marking a historic moment for electric vehicles (EVs). Clocking in at an astounding 7 mins 07.55 seconds, this feat cements the Taycan Turbo GT’s status as a trailblazer on one of the most challenging circuits in the world.

The Taycan Turbo GT’s remarkable performance is powered by up to 815 kW (1,108 PS) of peak power with Launch Control, enabling a jaw-dropping acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.2 seconds, and reaching top speeds of up to 305 km/h. With these stats, the Taycan Turbo GT not only showcases the potential of electric sports cars but also sets a new benchmark for speed and efficiency, boasting a power consumption of 21.3 – 20.6 kWh/100 km and zero CO₂ emissions.

The record-setting lap was masterfully executed by Lars Kern, Porsche’s development driver, demonstrating the synergy between cutting-edge technology and driving skill. This achievement was eagerly anticipated by automotive enthusiasts and industry watchers alike, following Porsche’s earlier announcement of the Taycan Turbo GT’s lap record and the promise of releasing an onboard video.

Beyond its prowess on the Nürburgring, the Taycan Turbo GT has also proven its mettle at the Laguna Seca raceway, where it became the fastest electric production car to lap the circuit with a time of 1 min 27.87 seconds. This double accomplishment underscores the Taycan Turbo GT’s dominance in the electric sports car category and Porsche’s commitment to pushing the boundaries of EV technology.

As the automotive industry continues to evolve towards sustainable mobility, Porsche’s achievements with the Taycan Turbo GT offer a glimpse into a future where electric vehicles not only match but exceed the performance of traditional combustion engine sports cars. The Taycan Turbo GT with the Weissach package is not just a car made to set records—it’s a beacon of innovation, driving us towards an electrifying horizon.
