Tesla was at the Nürburgring for wool and came out, in part, sheared . The role of the american manufacturer of electrical in the circuit of the world's most ambitious, field usual speed tests for different releases of models, was bittersweet: on the one hand, a version of the pre-production of the Model S more powerful beat unofficially to the standard version of the new Porsche Taycan. On the other, their images later uploaded to a crane have been received with derision in social networking.
The unit that traveled through the Green Hell German, called Plaid and that will be the butt-end of the sedan from next year -thanks to a configuration of three engines, (one more than the Performance), more power and better chassis and aerodynamics - got a time of 7 minutes and 23 seconds, timed unofficially by a journalist from the German publication Auto Motor und Sport. Still do not know the joint power of its thrusters, but could be around 1000 HP.
The brand is substantially better to that of the new Porsche Taycan Turbo, the configuration that is less powerful of the first power of the German mark -offers 680CV face 761 of the Taycan Turbo S -, who got a time of 7 minutes and 42 seconds.
quite an achievement marquetiniano for a manufacturer to youth that fought "at home" to a seated constructor of sports. However, it was washed subsequently by images that showed the model standing and, subsequently, picked up by a crane. While I had to be picked up by a tow truck the result of a malfunction, the unknown, was advance comfortably through various prototypes and production models, including a Taycan, according to a video uploaded to YouTube.
Despite the setback, Tesla, which ensures that the Model S Plaid can tour the Nürburgring in just , 7 minutes and 20 seconds , do not give up, and claims on Twitter that he will perform tests in October, which wants to reduce the mark up to just 7 minutes and 5 seconds.
