An electric vehicle is the new Porsche Taycan Turbo GT. The fastest and most powerful road-legal Porsche ever, it can accelerate from 0 to 60 mph in 2:01 seconds and has over 1,000 horsepower.

The last few months have seen Porsche soar as it grows its all-electric lineup. Porsche unveiled the fully electric Macan last month, its first production model to be transformed into an EV, following the reveal of its first established model, the Taycan.

More range, quicker charging, and improved performance make the new Taycan an all-around improvement. Kevin Giek, the head of the line, stated, “We are continuing this success story with the extensively updated Taycan.”.

Porsche added a heat pump, new thermal control, and a larger (105 kWh) battery to increase efficiency.

With all trims performing at “new heights in performance,” the 2025 Taycan outperforms its predecessors.

A new push-to-pass function, which increases power by up to 70 kW (for ten seconds) at the touch of a button, is one of the features that Porsche added. Porsche’s most potent road-legal vehicle to date, the Taycan Turbo can accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in 4:05 seconds with up to 938 horsepower. Until Porsche unveiled the Taycan Turbo GT on Monday, that is.

Introducing the Porsche Taycan Turbo GT.

Prior to its formal launch on Monday, Porsche repeatedly teased the potent Taycan Turbo GT.

Lars Kern ran a pre-series model around the Nurburgring in 7:07:55. That beat the track record of 7:25:31 set by the Tesla Model S Plaid (with track package) by 18 seconds and beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo S Sport by 26 seconds.

Porsche debuted the new model with the Weissach Package at the Weathertech Raceway Laguna Seca in California, where it had won the title for fastest electric series production vehicle.

Kern broke yet another record with a lap time of 1:27:87. It takes more than just having as much power as possible to show your mettle on the track. According to Giek, the entire package—which includes stability, aerodynamics, cornering grip, acceleration and braking—must be optimized.

Porsche AG shares the Taycan Turbo GT.

The updated Taycan, he continued, is a fantastic product from Porsche’s engineers, but “our new GT cars yet again clearly raise the bar even higher in terms of driving dynamics and enjoyment.”. “.

Going up against Tesla.

The prior record of 1:30:30, set by a Tesla Model S Plaid in 2020, was surpassed by Porsche’s new high-performance electric vehicle.

Power range: 0 to 60 mph.

Other electric cars have lapped the track more quickly, but they were all altered. The new Porsche outperforms the Tesla Model S Plaid, which has 1,020 horsepower, with up to 1,092 horsepower (with the Weissach Package).

With rollout deducted, Tesla claims the Model S Plaid can reach 60 mph from 0 in 1 point 99 seconds. That would surpass Porsche’s stated 2:01 seconds.

Since the Taycan took the top spot for fastest electric production car in 2019, Porsche and Tesla have been competing against each other.

The high-performance EV initially resembles a sporty Taycan. With aerobladed front spoiler and adjustable rear spoiler, this model is unique. Furthermore, compared to the Turbo and Turbo S models, it has a stronger “racing vibe.”.

In order to save 157 lbs over the Taycan Turbo S, the Weissach Package does away with all non-track driving equipment, such as the rear seats.

Orders are now being accepted for Porsche’s new Taycan Turbo GT and Turbo GT with Weissach Package. This summer is anticipated to see the release of the first models by US dealers.
