While the Porsche Taycan Turbo may be lacking in the lineup department, there is no doubt its performance capabilities. In this latest test outside of Germany, it is able to cover a racetrack faster than cars like the Shelby GT500 and M5 Competition.
german edition Sports car Took a Taycan Turbo – not the top-of-the-line Turbo S, mind you – to the Hockenheimring Formula 1 circuit to see how well it could measure up against its ICE-powered rivals. Despite the massive weight penalty from his battery on the ground, he is able to see a lap time of 1: 54.1 around the famous track. Comparing that with other lap times established by the publication, the Taycan Turbo is half a second faster than the mighty supercharged Shelby, and a tenth ahead of the brutally fast M5.
It’s also worth noting how much fun the ride looked like behind the wheel. Rider Christian Gebhardt is able to slide out of bends and really engage in faster bends. It’s worth a look if you still doubt the Taycan is a “real” Porsche.
