It’s fair to say that the Porsche Taycan happily continues to collect Guinness records! This time, a Cross Turismo variant of the 100% electric sports saloon from the Zuffenhausen brand has just become the new record holder for ‘donuts’ on ice!
The feat was publicized through the Race of Champions Youtube account, which, it seems, will have been responsible for capturing the attempt on video. Which ended up being a total of 69 ‘donuts’ in a row, achieved by a 100% electric car, on an icy surface.
The record for the most ‘donuts’ made was achieved by a production Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo, equipped with winter tires, on February 3, 2022, taking place on an icy lake in Pite Havsbad, Sweden, the same place where the 2022 Race of Champions took place.
The Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo has just set a new ‘donuts’ record, but on ice
Driven by veteran stunt driver Terry Grant, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo has thus set a new maximum number, for 100% electric cars, of tops on the same axle, without any interruption, and on an icy surface.
Moreover, in order for the new record to be validated, the ‘donuts’ had to be made inside a circle twice the length of the car. However, it was not easy for the driver, since the car insisted on interrupting the march whenever the ice, which was jumping, ended up covering one of the vehicle’s sensors, leading the system to understand this fact as if an accident if it were.

On the other hand, and with successive passes in the same place, the ice ended up getting more and more irregular, which, according to Grant, made concentration more difficult. Although and as the final result demonstrates, this was not enough to prevent the setting of a new world record for ‘donuts’ made on ice, by a 100% electric vehicle.
In conclusion, just remember that this is not the first record ever taken by the electric Porsche Taycan, which, through its derivations, has already won the title of the tram subject to the greatest difference in altitude, of the tram capable of reaching the highest speed. inside a closed building, or even a 100% electric vehicle driven for a longer time in drift.
