Porsche Amps Up 2025 Taycan Performance

by | March 5, 2024

Even the EV makers do it, and Porsche’s the latest to jump into the fray. Every electric vehicle eventually gets a performance variant so why should German sports car maker be any different? It’s not, hence, the tease of a track-ready, performance version of the all-electric Porsche Taycan.

Porsche sets Ring record

The new Porsche Taycan is just 2 seconds off the production EV record lap time, just behind the Rimac Nevera.

The short video clip shows off what the German sports car maker promises to be “the most dynamic Taycan of all time” on March 11. The company just released the 2025 Taycan models in early February. The new top entry is rumored to be called the Porsche Taycan Turbo GT.

Porsche’s been teasing its arrival for some time now, talking about how it clocked a Nürburgring lap time of 7:07.55. Lars Kern, the Porsche development driver who set the blistering lap time, will present the new model at the March 11 debut.

Faster EVs

The January lap time is about 18 seconds faster than the time posted by the Tesla Model S Plaid with its available Track Package. However, it’s just about 2 seconds slower than the ’Ring record for a production car, which was set by the Rimac Nevera hypercar at 7:05:298. The Taycan’s effort is all the more impressive considering Nevera is a nearly-2,000 hp 2-seater. You’ll also likely be able to buy several Taycans for the price of the muIti-million dollar Rimac flagship.

The regular Porsche Taycan is now slouch in the performance department. The rear-wheel drive Taycan sedan races from 0 to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds, 0.6 seconds faster than before.

Meanwhile, the new Taycan Turbo S sedan is now capable of reaching 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds, which is 0.3 seconds quicker than its predecessor. It’s now the quickest production car Porsche has ever offered, officials noted.
