A Model S Plaid lapped at the Nürburgring in 7: 30.909, becoming the fastest electric sedan on the German circuit and snatching the lead held by the Porsche Taycan
A Tesla Model S Plaid set a new record at the Nürburgring, setting a time of 7’30 “909 and thus becoming the fastest production electric sedan on the German circuit.
The Model S Plaid beats the Taycan
The electric sedan of the house driven by Elon Musk therefore breaks the record held so far by the Porsche Taycan Turbo, which on the German track had managed to stop the chronometer at 7’42 “3. The Tesla Model S Plaid, which can count on three electric motors and over 1020 Hp, with 7’30 “9 has therefore lowered the time by 12 seconds. As you can see in the tweet above, Elon Musk himself broke the news on Twitter. The entrepreneur, in a photo, refers to two times; one of 7’30 “909 and another of 7’35” 579. The first time was set on the 20.6 km circuit configuration, while the 7’35 “579 on the 20.832 km version of the Ring.
According to Elon Musk, the Model S Plaid that signed the record was standard. Tesla’s CEO also hinted that a modified version of the Model S Plaid, with carbon brakes, track tires and revised aerodynamics, could set a new record.
The revenge of the Porsche
We are confident that Porsche will not stand by and that a more performing version of the Taycan Turbo will certainly try to break the record from the Model S Plaid. We will see some good ones!
