Ever since it was launched, Taycan was drawing interest of car enthusiasts. It’s turbo powered version packs plenty of punch, and now, it officially holds a record for the highest speed reached indoors. The venue where the record was achieved was in the convention center in New Orleans, where the vehicle’s speed topped 102 miles per hour. While this may not seem like an incredible achievement, it needs to be noted that you need not only enough space to reach the speed, but also plenty of room for safe deceleration to a stop.
- From day one, it’s been clear that the Porsche Taycan Turbo S is a powerful car. But now the German automaker’s electric sedan is also a Guinness World Record holder.
- No, the marque’s 750 hp EV hasn’t managed to best the SSC Tuatara just yet, but it can now claim the title of world’s fastest indoor car.
- It remains to be seen if the Taycan Turbo S’s record will hold up for another seven years. It will likely get plenty of competition.
“The 102.6 mph top speed easily bested the previous mark of 86.99 mph by more than 15 mph. And that record, which was set by Mikko Hirvonen, had stood for more than seven years. Keen and the Turbo S broke the record on the first try, after just a few practice attempts.”
