Porsche Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach Package Nürburgring Lap

Porsche Taycan Turbo GT with Weissach Package Nürburgring Lap

A prototype version of the Porsche Taycan Turbo GT, enhanced with the Weissach Package, broke a new record on the famous Nürburgring race track. The person behind the steering wheel, Kern, managed to complete a lap around the Nordschleife circuit in just 7:07.55. This achievement is not only notable for being 26 seconds quicker than Kern’s previous best in a Taycan Turbo S (a version of the car that’s already quite speedy, thanks to its performance package) recorded in August 2022, but it also sets a new benchmark for electric vehicles in mass production. Furthermore, this makes the Turbo GT the quickest four-door car across all engine types to ever race around the Nürburgring, demonstrating a blend of innovation, speed, and power.

The Turbo GT’s launch control is another highlight, unlocking the full potential of 1,092 horsepower for a swift two seconds. This feature propels the car to 60 mph in just 2.2 seconds, or an even quicker 2.1 seconds with the inclusion of the lightweight Weissach track package, marking it the first four-door Porsche to offer this option. This is a slight edge over the Taycan Turbo S, with the Turbo GT taking 6.6 seconds to hit 124 mph, reduced to 6.4 seconds with the Weissach package. Its maximum track speed is an impressive 180 mph, or 190 mph with the Weissach package.

A key component behind this speed increase is a pulse inverter employing silicon carbide, enhancing the power to the rear motor. This, coupled with a new motor on the rear axle found in the updated Taycan lineup, results in a boost in power and efficiency, packaged more lightly than before. The Turbo GT, especially with the Weissach package, sees a reduction in weight by up to 157 pounds compared to the Turbo S.
