Launched last year, the Porsche Taycan is the very first electric car released by the premium manufacturer, until then rather confined to roaring combustion engines. A little more than a year after its arrival on the market in China, the electric sedan has just made its entry into the Guinness Book of Records, achieving the longest uninterrupted skid (or “drift”) so far ever achieved by a electric vehicle. Validated at the Porsche Experience Center Hockenheimring in Germany, this new world record will have lasted nearly 55 minutes, the time that the driver and instructor Dennis Retera performs 210 continuous laps on a 200-meter-long ring, while keeping his wheels constantly oriented. towards the outside of the curve. This controlled skidding over the equivalent of more than 42 km of distance was carried out at an average speed of 46 km / h, the manufacturer said in a statement released today, and was carried out with a rear-wheel drive version of the vehicle.

The Porsche Taycan is the manufacturer’s very first 100% electric vehicle. Victims of their success at the time of their officialization, the first models of the series took a little time to reach European territory after their first marketing in China. With a starting price set at € 150,000 for the Taycan 4S model, and beyond € 220,000 for the Taycan Turbo S model, the vehicle is capable of reaching 560 kW (761 hp) and operating speed peaks at 260 km / h. In terms of range, the manufacturer promises up to 403 km of peace before having to take a break and 9 hours of charging to go from 0% to 100% battery, thanks to a compatibility of 93.4 kWh. Note that this extended drift is not the first record broken by the electric vehicle, since the Porsche Taycan had already distinguished itself in a 24 km endurance test on the Nardo speed ring, or even at Lahr aerodrome, where the latter had completed 26 sprints in a row from 0 to 200 km / h.
