The electric sedan of the German firm was tested in the United States, and surprised with the results. It set a record and is now the fastest production ‘zero emission’ vehicle on the Michelin Road Atlanta circuit.
The Porsche Taycan Turbo S is today a ‘star’, after achieving a speed record on the Michelin Road circuit in the United States, where it was awarded the title of ” fastest production electric car “, at least in this track specifically.
In itself, the range of the electric Taycan from the moment of its premiere always promised high performance and this is only a fact that confirms it. The vehicle was officially launched on the market in September 2019 and has been a resounding success for the brand.
With saying that, in September this year it was reported that the electric sedan is already the German manufacturer’s best-selling model in Europe , and in October it was reported that Porsche increased its sales by 50% thanks to the Taycan . Nor is it the first record, just a month ago he was crowned the ” world king of drift “.
With a new crown, the Porsche Taycan in its Turbo S version boasts of being the fastest production electric vehicle on the Michelin Road circuit. Which is to say that the sports car covered the four-kilometer track in a surprising 1:33:88 minutes.
By the time of the test, which was reported to have taken place last month, the temperature was close to 20 degrees Celsius and the Taycan Turbo S unit was fitted with Michelin Pirelli P Zero NF0 Elect summer- spec tires as standard. American Leh Keen was the pilot for the occasion.
Keen’s insights were only good for the electric sedan, stating that the rear-axle steering, optional Sport chassis dynamics, and well-programmed Sport Plus stability control allowed him to accelerate harder than he thought.
The feat also featured the propulsion system with which the Taycan was equipped and especially in this one, the Turbo S version. We are talking about a set made up of two electric motors, with a power of 761 horsepower and the acceleration capacity of 0 to 100 km / h in 2.8 seconds.
Recall that its range that includes three versions, the Turbo S is the most powerful of all above the Turbo and 4S , which is the entry variant. The Taycan arrived in the Turbo version initially for a price of US $ 212,700.
