Porsche Breaks World Record of Longest Drift in an Electric Vehicle

Porsche has broken the Guinness World Record for the longest drift of an electric vehicle.

The German car maker’s instructor, Dennis Retera, completed 210 laps on a 656-foot-long drift circle without the front wheels ever pointing in the same direction of the curve.

Retera clocked in 55 minutes while traveling sideways in a Porsche Taycan, covering a total of 26 miles.

The Taycan has hit previous milestones, as it holds the record for its 24-hour endurance run over 2,128 miles on the high-speed track in Nardò, Italy and the best time in its class of 7:42 minutes on the Nürburgring-Nordschleife, Germany.

The record-breaking event took place at Porsche’s Hockenheimring center, which is setup with an irrigation system to provide water on the track for a clean drift.
