The fierce rivalry between Tesla and Porsche has been going on for a long time, but in recent months it has taken a whole new, crazy level. This is due to the development of the most powerful versions of the Model S and Taycan. Both vehicles practically do not leave the famous racetracks to break records.
The latest one has just been set by the Model S Plaid at the Nürburgring track in Germany. Until now, the master electrician was a Porsche Taycan with a time of 7 minutes and 42 seconds. Now it is 7 minutes and 30 seconds, which is less than 12 seconds less. This is an amazing result for such powerful and fast vehicles.
But it is not everything. Musk added that this record is worth noting because the feat was achieved with a factory vehicle, without modifications, i.e. the same as in the United States and around the world used by thousands of people every day. Model S Plaid has 1020 hp and reaches hundreds in 2.1 seconds. This is performance worthy of a hypercar, and we are talking here about an ordinary family sedan.
Porsche, however, has yet to say the last word. So far, the Taycan Turbo has toured the track, and the 760-horsepower Turbo S variant will soon enter the game. However, automotive experts believe that the record may belong to a completely different brand. The 1914 horsepower Rimac Nevera is due to arrive at the Nürburgring soon.
