Final summer time, Porsche went to the Nürburgring to reclaim the manufacturing electrical automobile lap report from Tesla. It managed to beat the Mannequin S Plaid by simply over 2 seconds with a Taycan Turbo S outfitted with a brand new efficiency bundle. Now, Tesla has achieved nearly the very same factor. It went again to Germany with Mannequin S Plaid with a brand new efficiency bundle, and toppled the Taycan.
The Tesla’s official time is 7:25.231. That is a severely spectacular 8.119 seconds sooner than the Taycan’s time. You may watch the entire lap on the prime of this submit.
The Mannequin S Plaid pulled this off with the addition of the Monitor Pack. It was launched final month, so this report appears to be proof of its effectiveness. What it contains are large carbon ceramic brakes in any respect 4 corners, six- and four-piston calipers, upgraded pads, light-weight wheels, sticky Goodyear tires and a few firmware updates. You may see extra particulars right here, and the bundle is accessible from Tesla for a not-insignificant $20,000.
So the ball is just about again in Porsche’s courtroom to attempt to take the report again. Maybe it is time for a GT-branded Taycan with much more energy? Or possibly another producers ought to get in on the sport. Lucid definitely has a potent electrical sedan. We’re definitely comfortable to see some lap report jockeying once more.
