The Porsche Taycan has achieved another Guinness World Record title, this time it has accomplished the fastest speed achieved by a vehicle in an enclosed building. The Porsche Taycan Turbo S was driven by racing driver Leh Keen who managed to reach just over 102 mph indoors.
You may remember back in November the Porsche Taycan achieved the title for the ‘longest drift in an electric vehicle’ which was an astonishing 26.2 miles!
This time, the stakes were raised, certainly in terms of safety, as Leh Keen had to beat the previous Guiness World Record attempt for fastest speed indoors which previously stood as just over 85mph. The terrifying task had to be completed all within the space of the building without a run up beforehand.
The building used was an enormous convention centre in New Orleans, boasting over one million square feet.
In order to achieve such a feat, it required a car with extremely hard acceleration and deceleration, and something that the driver would feel safe driving under such intense conditions. The Taycan Turbo S ticked all the boxes. The Turbo S achieves 0-62mph in just 2.8 seconds, and with its powerful carbon ceramic brakes, it meant the car was able to attain maximum braking.
“I did take a moment on the starting line – knowing I was going to have to go as fast as I could, and stop again, all before reaching the wall I was facing. It got my attention. I used the car’s launch control and the Taycan just hooked up – the sensation of speed indoors, even in such a big space, is enormous – that wall rushed up fast.”
