The timed lap was executed in early November and was licensed by the data-logging professionals at Vbox. The Taycan Turbo S that Eager piloted got here carrying Pirelli P Zero NFO Elect tires straight from the manufacturing facility—some stickier rubber little doubt would have shaved a second (maybe much more) off of the file time. Turbo S fashions additionally include all of the go-fast goodies you will get for the Taycan, together with carbon ceramic brakes, energetic anti-roll bars, and rear wheel steering.
For a bit of context, Eager’s 1 minute, 33.88 second lap was 3.7 seconds slower than MotorTrend sizzling shoe Randy Pobst managed within the a lot lighter, way more hardcore, and much more track-ready C7 Corvette Z06. Despite the fact that three seconds is a very long time on this planet of racing, the truth that an EV even obtained near that point is actually exceptional.
