As per the latest news, Porsche has broken the Guinness World Record for indoor land speed in its all-electric Taycan car. The driver of this car was racer Leh Keen who crushed the prior record by 13.6 mph at 102.65 mph in New Orleans, Louisiana State, USA.
“I didn’t look down at my speed so it came as a surprise and a relief that I’d beaten the record, and by such a margin. It was a rush! I’m thankful for Porsche for trusting my abilities and for their preparations and encouragement — 102 mph inside a building. What was I thinking?”Leh said.
According to Guinness, Porsche has now recorded its fourth world record which includes the title for longest vehicle drift in an electric car, the fastest vehicle slalom, and the heaviest aircraft pulled by a production car.
While some may say the indoor land speed record was the last set in 2013 and would be easier to break, the stricter guidelines set forth by Guinness have added further challenge to it. “I didn’t really appreciate the scale of the record attempt until my first exploratory run.”
Leh said after he set the record. “The surface is so unpredictable, so slick, that you have to have complete trust in your car. It truly was like ice — and you’re accelerating flat out, facing a really hard wall at the end.”
As per some sources, the Fastest car is SSC Tuatara, a sports car designed, developed, and manufactured by American automobile manufacturer SSC North America. The car is the result of a design collaboration between Jason Castriota and SSC.
Whereas the fastest speed object is NASA’s Parker Solar Probe which is commonly known as the first-ever mission to touch the sun. This spacecraft is about the size of a small car that travels directly through the Sun’s atmosphere.
