By managing to complete the 20.8 km of the Nordschleife of the Nürburgring in 7 min 33.35 s, Lars Kern, the Porsche Development driver, leaves the Tesla Model S Plaid 2 seconds behind him (7 min 35.579 s).
However, this kit consists "simply" of a software update of the Porsche 4D chassis control system.
The Taycan also fitted 21-inch Pirelli P Zero tires primarily designed for track driving.
That said, buyers can switch back to standard road tires without electronic adaptation at any time.
“We are delighted that the Nürburgring record for electric cars is once again in the hands of Porsche,” said Kevin Giek, Vice President Model Line Taycan.
“This lap time not only shows the potential of our new performance kit and once again confirms the sports car genes of the Taycan.
The Tequipment performance kit is currently only available in Germany and only for the 2023 Taycan Turbo S. It is expected that installation will be carried out after initial delivery, at the Porsche workshops in Zuffenhausen.
This kit is offered at €13,377.32, 19% VAT included.
