News Link: Taycan It In-Porsche’s EV the Fastest Car in the World-Indoors – By MK (Editor)
If there’s an EV-related record, Porsche has probably thought about breaking it with the Taycan—or already set it. The Taycan is the fastest four-door EV recently achieved the longest continuous drift in an electric vehicle. In Turbo S trim, it’s also the fastest EV around Road Atlanta. And now it’s the fastest car in the world, as long as we’re talking indoors.
Porsche Taycan TurboS driven by racing driver Leh Keen recently set the official Guinness Indoor Land Speed Record. The reason behind the quickest and faster version of the Taycan is because of its 750 hp. And exceptionally brutal off-the-line performance thanks to its launch control.
The location for this record was the New Orleans Convention Center. It encompasses more than one million square feet and is home to the largest contiguous exhibit hall in the United States. With nothing currently being exhibited, the empty hall’s length made it an ideal location for a record attempt.
The floors in the NOCC are polished concrete – In most convention centers, it is like that. That makes them much slicker than normal road surfaces.
After a few practice runs, Keen hit 102.6 mph indoors, a number verified by independent adjudicators. And well surpassing the previous bar of 86 mph. Pretty cool, Porsche. Keep the oddball records coming.
