Tesla promises to beat the Porsche Taycan record on the Nurburgring

Tesla left the Nurburgring race track after testing new electric cars, but promised to return to the track on Twitter next month with its modified Model S “Plaid”.

It is reported that during tests last week, the company’s electric car circled this track in 7 minutes 23 seconds, breaking the Porsche Taycan record set in August this year. However, no formal measurements were taken.

Tesla confirmed that the track’s track record indicated that its Model S “Plaid” could circle in 7 minutes 20 seconds.

The company further promised that when the Model S “with some improvements” returns to the track, it will be able to reach 7 minutes 05 seconds. Model S “Plaid” is equipped with a “Plaid” powerplant with three electric motors and an advanced prototype chassis.

Demonstrating the seriousness of their intentions, the company installed a permanent Supercharger charging station at the highway.

Tesla also shared some of the details of its record-breaking lap attempt, including data on mechanical power and tangential acceleration.

The performance of the Tesla electric car on the track is impressive. However, an attempt to break the Porsche Taycan record with a modified model is likely to be challenged due to the use of a non-serial vehicle.
