What good a sports car is if it has not been tested on the famous Nürburgring? Every manufacturer pits their sports car at the Nürburgring to test is capabilities. While the record is with Porsche 919 Hybrid Evo for a lap time of 5:19.546 and as for production sports car, the record is also with Porsche GT2 RS MR with a lap time of 6:44.749.
Electric cars are not regulars at Nürburgring, only two fully electric cars have been tested there, one of them is also Porsche! Fully eletric Taycan Turbo S. But when we talk electric how can we miss Elon Musk and his company Tesla. That’s right Elon Musk has jumped in with a tweet stating that the Tesla Model S will be at Nürburgring as early as next week. Now Elon’s tweets always lead to something interesting so we might actually see Tesla at the Nürburgring.
Model S on Nürburgring next week

Also, this can be a response to the Porsche Taycan Nürburgring run, and Elon wants to show what their Tesla Model S is capable of. If that is the reason Elon Musk has to aim to better the 7 minutes and 42 seconds lap time of the Taycan. And if the Tesla Model S can do that it will take the “fastest four-door, all-electric sports cars” record from the Taycan.
Coming to the car, Tesla will use the more powerful P100D Performance variant. Powered by two electric motors, which powers all the four wheels and developing immense torque right from the word go. It takes 2.4 seconds to 100kmph and has a top speed of 262kmph. Tesla Model S is 0.2 seconds quicker than the Porsche Taycan Turbo S to 100kmph.
So with such close of competition in specs and 0-100 runs, it will be great to see if the Tesla Model S can beat the Porsche Taycan Turbo S in the famous track of Nürburgring and become the fastest four-door all-electric sports car at Nürburgring.
