Wild Porsche Taycan Turbo GT boosted to 1093bhp


Among the changes are the removal of the rear seats, rear speakers and one of the two charge ports. Also gone are the floor and boot mats, as well as some of the interior sound insulation material.

The active rear spoiler is replaced by a fixed carbonfibre wing and the windows are swapped out for lightweight glass. 

These efforts net an extra 70kg reduction compared with the regular Turbo GT. All of this makes the Turbo GT the fastest-accelerating Porsche to have hit public roads. It dispatches 0-62mph in just 2.2sec with the Weissach package and 2.3sec without it. 

For reference, the Model S Plaid has a claimed 0-60mph time of 1.99sec but Tesla subtracts a one-foot rollout from the timing, meaning the car is already moving before timing begins. Autocar testing showed that, without the rollout, it took 2.4sec to hit 60mph. 

The Turbo GT goes on to a top speed of 180mph with the Weissach package, or 190mph without. To further improve track performance, the Turbo GT receives specially calibrated Porsche Active Ride suspension, which is claimed by the marque to offer “an almost perfect connection to the road”. 

With all of these modifications in place, the Turbo GT has decimated the lap record for road-legal electric cars at the fearsome Nürburgring Nordschleife, rounding the 14.1-mile track in 7min 7.55sec.
