Break new ground in the best Porsche design tradition – that was the brief for designing the Taycan. Here we take a look at some of the exterior highlights of this ground-breaking new model.
Lateral air intakes ahead of the front wheels – so-called Aircurtains – improve the aerodynamics by guiding incoming air over the wheels like a curtain, therefore reducing turbulence.
Four-point LED headlights
The floating design of the new headlights gives the Taycan a distinctive identity, while the four-point LED signature is an unmistakeable expression of Porsche DNA.
Deploying door handles
The silhouette is characterised by a dynamic, flat flyline. Flush, automatically extending door handles open the vehicle interior with its deep, sporty seating position.
Panoramic fixed glass roof
There are two roof options: the contoured variant made of lightweight aluminium with an indentation in the middle that creates a shape that is known to us from motorsport. Alternatively, a panoramic fixed glass roof provides an open, airy feeling.
The rear design features a seamless light strip made of glass, as well as the ‘Porsche’ logo in glass look. Above these are the Porsche Active Aerodynamics (PAA) in the form of a three-stage rear spoiler system.
*Data determined in accordance with the Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicles Test Procedure (WLTP) as required by law. You can find more information on WLTP at www.porsche.com/wltp . For Plug-in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) range and Equivalent All Electric Range (EAER) figures are determined with the battery fully charged, using a combination of both battery power and fuel.
Values are provided for comparison only. To the extent that fuel and energy consumption or CO₂ values are given as ranges, these do not relate to a single, individual car and do not constitute part of the offer. Optional features and accessories can change relevant vehicle parameters such as weight, rolling resistance and aerodynamics which may result in a change in fuel or energy consumption and CO₂ values. Vehicle loading, topography, weather and traffic conditions, as well as individual driving styles, can all affect the actual fuel consumption, energy consumption, electrical range, and CO₂ emissions of a car.
