Porsche Cayenne Tows World’s Largest Plane for World’s Record!

A stock Porsche Cayenne set a world record by towing the world’s largest passenger plane at an airport in France.

The European-spec 2017 Cayenne S Diesel set a Guinness World Record for the heaviest aircraft pulled by a production car by pulling an Air France Airbus A380 — which weighs about 628,000 pounds — at Charles de Gaulle International Airport.

The vehicle was not modified at all for the record attempt and used a standard tow bar with a special towing attachment to pull the massive plane, which is the world’s largest passenger jet.

“It did it — I’m so relieved. We don’t usually go this far to test the limits of our cars but I think today we got pretty close,” Porsche Great Britain technician Richard Payne, who drove the car, told the Daily Record. “I could tell that it was working hard but the Cayenne didn’t complain and just got on with it. My mirrors were quite full of Airbus, which was interesting.”

The Diesel model set the record and managed to pull the aircraft about 137 feet, and afterward a Cayenne Turbo S model managed to complete the feat as well
“Our cars can go a bit beyond what our customers might expect – they’re designed to be tough. But even so, what the Cayenne did today was remarkable,” Payne said.

Driving Down the Road

After a long winter, you’re likely ready to give up your hibernating ways for some adventure and sunshine. For many Canadians this means family vacations, trips to the cottage, camping excursions, and weekend road trips. Whatever your style, chances are you are getting ready to hit the road, but are you confident that your car is in good enough shape to get you there safely and efficiently?

Winter’s cold temperatures and icy conditions have been hard on your car, so it is likely showing some signs of wear and tear. Spring is the perfect time to bring your car in for a full inspection to identify any minor problems, before they become major ones.

Here are some tips to keep your car running safely this spring and summer.
