Keeping your tires spinning is a difficult task in any situation. At first glance, electric cars would seem to be at a disadvantage, but Top Gear has set a new EV drifting record. Chris Harris didn’t need the complications of All Wheel Drive, so Porsche supplied a new Taycan Turbo S without the front axles.
The real treat is how efficient electric motors are once the wheels are spinning. Unlike gas, electricity adapts to load. Using incredible torque to light them up, the Taycan throttles back to just enough power to keep them moving. By only drawing a few amps on the battery, electric drifting is the future of spectator motorsports. The Taycan has even more tricks up it’s sleeve, so click the button to find yours.
