The Porsche Taycan EV has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest continuous drift in an electric car. The electric car covered 42.171 km in 55 minutes while continuously drifting around a circular track.
The record was set by Porsche instructor Dennis Retera at the Porsche Experience Centre at the Hockenheimring in Germany. The car completed 210 laps around a skid pad at an average speed of 46 km/h.
The rear-wheel drive version of the Taycan was used for the record run. This version comes with either a 397 BHP or 463 BHP electric motor which is powered by either a 79.2 kWh or 93.4 kWh battery pack.
The Taycan is the first electric car to achieve such a record. The BMW M5 holds the record the longest drift. The V8-powered sedan had covered 374 km in 8 hours.
