Hockenheim (Germany): The Porsche Taycan EV has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest continuous drift in an electric car on November 24.

The electric covered 42.171 km in 55 minutes while continuously drifting around a circular track.

The record was set by Porsche instructor Dennis Retera at the Porsche Experience Centre at the Hockenheimring in Germany. The car completed 210 laps around a skidpad at an average speed of 46 km/h.

The rear-wheel-drive version of the Taycan was used for the record run. This version comes with either a 397 BHP or 463 BHP electric motor which is powered by either a 79.2 kWh or 93.4 kWh battery pack.

Taycan is the first electric car to set such a record.

In 2018, The BMW M5 had set the record of the world's longest drift at 232.5 miles, which required refuelling the car mid-rift.

The V8-powered sedan had covered 374 km in 8 hours.

The record of Porsche Taycan EV was taken under the supervision of Guinness World Record judge Joanne Brent.


A Nissan GT-R camera was used to film a video of the attempt, which is embedded above.
