For the second time, Elon Musk's Tesla model breaks record fastest lap to complete at Laguna Seca, California track. Following the Model 3 title in July of this year, the Model S, the company's new four-door electric sports car, became the fastest model ever to complete the Californian course, as seen in a video released by Elon himself:
The whole match began after provocations between Porsche and Tesla, where the former got the fastest lap record at the winding Nürburgring circuit in Nürburg, Germany in an impressive time of 7 minutes 42 seconds. Facing it as a call for a challenge, the rival decided to put his sporting models into practice.
However, it is noteworthy that the tracks where the vehicles reached their respective records are quite different, being the German internationally known for having one of the most challenging tracks. Understanding the situation and the need to test his Model S, the billionaire apparently accepted the challenge and his sport is already in Germanic land, according to tweet.
But we probably won't try for a better lap time this week, as we need to review & tune Model S thoroughly for safety on Nürburgring, especially Flugplatz section

After stating that his model is already in Nuremberg, the CEO adds that "we are probably not going to try the best time back this week, as we need to review and prepare Model S for safety in Nürburgring, especially in the Flugplatz section."
Porsche's Taycan model, a German track record holder, still awaits the multi-entrepreneur's positioning on some prediction to complete the challenge. Meanwhile, behind the scenes, Klaus Zellmer, president of Porsche Cars in North America, said, in an interview with CNet, respecting anyone who wants to go to Nürburgring for a test. “We love the competition.”
The competitive dispute should soon be closed.
