Porsche Taycan enters the Guinness World Records book with unexpected performance!

Porsche managed to add its name to the legendary Guinness World Records book through its electric car, Porsche Taycan. The established record is as impressive as it is peculiar, having been necessary to accomplish drift for a total of 42 kilometers without stopping once.

The race was held at the Porsche experimental center in Hockenheimring, Germany. One of its drivers, Dennis Retera, made a total of 210 laps at a 200-meter “roundabout” without the Porsche Taycan’s wheels pointing once in the direction of the curve.

For this feat to become possible, they needed to irrigate the asphalt constantly so as not to run the risk of the tires bursting during the 55 minutes of the race. By completing this true marathon, Retera managed to set a new world record for the drift longest ever in an electric car.

Everything it took for the Porsche Taycan to enter the Guinness World Records book

In addition to finding the ideal driver to ride in a circle for almost an hour, Porsche needed to meet very specific conditions in order to guarantee entry into the Guinness World Records book.

First, they had to use the model Rear Wheel Drive (RWD) of the Porsche Taycan which is currently only available in China. Being a rear-wheel drive model, it makes the drift smoother, stable and easier to control.

With regard to the track where the race was held, they obviously had to ensure that the asphalt was in perfect condition, but not only. It was also necessary to install an irrigation system that could keep the surface covered with water for the duration of the race. In this way, they managed to ensure that the tires did not burst due to their overheating.

Considering the great rivalry created between Porsche and Tesla, it will be interesting to see if Elon Musk will be able to “hold on” to stay out of this race.
