Porsche Taycan drifts into the Guinness World Records™ book
Porsche instructor Dennis Retera did 210 laps on the 200 metre-long drift circle without the front wheels ever pointing in the same direction as the curve: after 55 minutes the sideways expert had covered a total of 42.171 kilometres. The record was achieved with the rear-wheel drive version of the Taycan, which is already on sale in China.
When the driving stability programmes are switched off, a powerslide with the electric Porsche is extremely easy, especially of course with this model variant, which is driven exclusively via the rear wheels, says Dennis Retera, Sufficient power is always available. The low centre of gravity and the long wheelbase ensure stability. The precise design of the chassis and steering allows for perfect control at all times, even when moving sideways.

About Guinness World Records
The history of Guinness World RecordsTM began on 10 November 1951, when Sir Hugh Beaver (1890-1967), Managing Director of the Guinness Brewery in Ireland, accompanied a hunt.
This experience gave Sir Hugh the idea for a promotional campaign designed to stimulate conversation in pubs. Guinness Superlatives was founded on 30 November 1954 and the first edition of the Guinness Book of RecordsTM was published in 1955.
