For 24 hours it took over Fiat's race track at Nardo in South-East part of Italy
Porsche Taycan is only days away from being revealed at the fourth of September in three different countries at the same time: in China, Germany and Canada. With all the hype we expect it to be quite an event and for all the right reasons, considering the fact it is going to be Porsche’s first fully electric car. But just before that, Porsche’s engineers has decided to stretch its wheels for one last time being incognito.
In fact, they took it to Nardo, Italian high-speed race track to make a 24 hour test drive, while stopping only for recharging the battery pack and change of drivers – there were six of them in the team. How many stops they had to make is something Porsche did not reveal, but they were quite fast, thanks to 800-volt technology for charging. In the end, the team managed to cover exactly 3.425 kilometers, which is hardly a distance from Nardi (located in the ‘heel’ of Italian boot) to a town of Trondheim in Norway. Meanwhile, the speed they were traveling with most of the time was between 195 and 215 kilometers per hour.
Stefan Weckbach, Vice President Product Line Taycan commeted this achievement with delight. “Taycan mastered this ambitious endurance run without any problems. The result achieved in Nardò highlights the advantages of the unique 800-volt technology and its high maturity level. Before the Taycan is launched on the market at the end of the year, we will have covered over six million test kilometres across the globe.”
