Porsche Cayenne Coupé, new SUV record at the Nürburgring

They just served him 7 minutes and 38 seconds to the Cayenne Coupé turbo driver to sweep away the record held by the Audi RS Q8. Porsche made the history of the Nürburgring by winning the best time in the “SUV, off-road, van and pickup” category.

On Monday 14 June Lars Kern recorded the best time of the Nordschleife, literally the “north ring”, the most famous of the circuits of the Nürburgring complex. The undertaking began at 11.31 with an external temperature of 23 degrees and 46 degrees on the track.

The Cayenne was a record fully equipped to face the Ring: from the containment seat to the roll-bar, a structure of steel tubes for the protection of the rider. It was also fitted with 22-inch Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires, specially made for the Cayenne turbo and included in the standard equipment. To confirm the SUV’s series production status, a notary was present who certified the fastest lap, placing it in the official Nürburgring rankings.

Lars Kern, who helped develop the Porsche Cayenne, was very pleased with the SUV’s behavior. Starting from the precision of the steering and the stability of the rear that have helped to transmit it extreme confidence in the middle.

The tester was amazed above all by the quick changes of direction, to which the car responded well without wobbling or understeer. The Nordschleife contains some very technical traits: however the Cayenne, renewed in 2019 in a more aggressive guise, managed these parts without particular problems. The SUV has always remained under control without neglecting one exciting driving.

The most famous and complete track in Germany also has portions in which the wheels easily rise from the ground, in this case the test driver was obliged to specify that the Cayenne has dealt with problem areas with ease. Wide praise also went to the transmission, powerful in every situation that allowed perfect gear changes.

An applause for the milestone reached comes directly from the Vice President of the Cayenne and Taycan production line (recently with one less electric motor) Stefan Weckbach who praised the dynamic capabilities of the vehicle. In this case, high performance is combined with driving comfort and practicality in everyday use, making the Cayenne a true multifunction SUV.
