The Porsche Taycan is the world’s fastest car … indoors.
The electric sedan has indeed exceeded 165 km / h in a hangar in New Orleans, United States.
And one more record for the Porsche Taycan, one! A few weeks after performing the longest drift ever made by an electric vehicle (42 km and 55 minutes of non-stop drifting!), The German sedan once again inscribes its name in the Guinness Book of Records.
She just won the title of the fastest car in the world … indoors! Led by pilot Leh Keen, she has indeed reached the 165.1 km / h, standing start and preheated tires, in a gigantic hangar of around 93,000 m² located in New Orleans (Louisiana), USA. Record largely broken since the old reference time, 7 years old, was “only” 138.4 km / h.
“I didn’t really realize how difficult this record was until my first attempt,” said Leh Keen. “The surface is so unpredictable, so smooth, that you have to have complete confidence in your car. It was really like ice.”
