Porsche development driver Lars Kern has posted a new lap time of 7:07.55 minutes on the Nordschleife driving a pre-series Taycan, beating his last Taycan record drive by 26 seconds. Head of the model line, Kevin Giek, says “This puts the Taycan in the same league as electric hypercars” and “the impressive thing about it is that over several laps, Lars clocked almost exactly the same time.”
The last record drive was set in the Taycan Turbo S in 2022 with the pre-series Taycan finishing a huge 0.8 miles ahead on the 13 miles course.

Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
