In recent years, Porsche and Tesla have entered a fierce competition to show who can produce the fastest electric car, specifically, on the Nürburgring Nordschleife circuit, the longest and most challenging road course in the world. First, in 2019, Porsche through the Taycan Turbo managed to place itself in the number one position in the category of the fastest cars on the Nürburgring track located in the Eifel region, Germany. That time, the electric sedan achieved a record time of 7 minutes and 42.34 seconds after traveling at high speed the track made up of almost 21 kilometers and 90 curves, some of them with height differences. Two years after this feat by Porsche, Tesla sought to break this brand with the most powerful version of the Model S -Plaid-. Thanks to its power -1,020 horsepower-, the car reaches a maximum of (560 kW), this car managed to complete the mission by obtaining a timed time of 7 minutes and 35.58 seconds, a figure that allowed it to unseat the Taycan Turbo, and thus placing itself as the fastest electric car on the Nürburgring Nordschleife. Faced with the challenge of being the car brand with the best time on this racetrack known as the Green Hell, Porsche once again went in search of the title that it had already won long ago. EnlargeWhich is the fastest electric car around the Nürburgring?For payback, if you can call it anything, Porsche used the 625-horsepower 2023 Taycan Turbo S and 761-horsepower with Active Launch Control. Within the different fastest laps it did on the Nürburgring track, this sedan made its best time, stopping the clock in 7 minutes and 33.35 seconds. What does the Taycan high-performance kit consist of? In this new brand, the sedan equipped with the high-performance kit and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), it was almost identical to the one sold to customers; the only difference was the racing seat and the safety cage, this per track rules. Fitted with the high-performance kit, the record-setting Taycan is distinguished by 21-inch road-legal RS Spyder wheels and Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres, featuring a compound similar to that used on racing cars. Another element is the software update for the Porsche 4D Chassis Control, so that it works better with those tires. This program analyzes and synchronizes all of the Taycan’s chassis systems in real time. Overall, with the high-performance kit, the Porsche Taycan Turbo S can go even faster, plus it gains in agility and precision. For now, this package – priced at $13,600 – can only be purchased in Germany and only for the 2023 Taycan model year, which began production at the end of July 2022.ExpandHow much is this Porsche Taycan worth in Mexico?Positioned At the top of the Taycan range, the Turbo S version is priced at 3,982,000 pesos at Porsche dealers in Mexico.
