Tesla Model S 'Plaid' has gone round the Nürburgring in 7:13 minutes
While many might have even forgotten about Tesla making the Plaid powertrain and aiming to beat the Porsche Taycan around the Nürburgring, Tesla haven't and they have gone with their Tesla Model S Plaid and set an unofficial lap time of 7 minutes and 13 seconds. That means that the Plaid Model S is 29 seconds faster round the 'Ring than the Porsche Taycan.
While this might seem a blistering lap time to many, this is still not what the Plaid Model S can achieve. The Plaid Model S is no slouch. It is not a car made deliberately by a carmaker to beat its counterpart, it is a car that is production bound and will raise the bars for EVs.
Porsche, time to do something.
