For anyone wondering what a "fun" Taycan Targa might look like, Jon Sibal, a well-known designer in the automotive community came up with his version of it. It reflects what some of us are dreaming up.. a version influenced by the 911 Targa, shortened to 2 doors, slammed on a classic set of turbofan wheels and finished with a spoiler subtle like some 911 Turbo's.

A targa top looks like a perfect match for the platform. With how low it is to the ground I bet its would even benefit from better aerodynamics/range.

Those retro turbofan rims are awesome. Much prefer them over the newer aero efficient wheels that have been popping up on newer electrics. I think this might be a little too low for daily use.

Fortunately it seems Porsche can make a case to bring wheels similar to the Model 3's approach, known are aero wheels

Minimizing rolling resistance can go a long way. This is a sleek looking concept and a good prelude to some of the mods that Taycan owners are likely to consider. There's no active wing on the Taycan, right?

Aerodynamics have been worked in, so far nothing active like what the 911 has was worked in. That's not to say it won't happen however.

I would imagine weight management is big focus. Adding unnecessary electronics for an active spoiler/top would have to be compensated for elsewhere.

Weight can't be that much of an issue considering the insane torque we'll get off the line.

My belief is it does more with the vehicles design theme, its clean and will remain that way.

Weight wont affect power delivery, just handling in an out of corners. But they've already said that the battery pack has been placed as low as possible in the car.
