Although its still really early to determine what sort of aftermarket support the Taycan will see, an artist has already drawn up a virtually tuned rendering. It is noticeably slammed and has been completely murdered out. I really like how it looks in a matte black guise.

That's a pretty slick looking rendering. The Taycan is already looking pretty low with its stock suspension, as cutting down drag will help to improve its aerodynamics and range capability.

Great way to throw off the dynamics of a car built to drive. Do it to a Lincoln but not the Taycan. Playing with wheel size and tire profiles are the furthest I would go.

Not a whole lot has been done here aside from a new finish and wheel setup. I know there have been reports that weight saving wheels and height reduction can provide some improvement to range on EV's.

In this case where we have the typical stance theme going on, dynamics are always thrown out in favor of form, even just using oversized wheels can do it combined with the stance seen here.

The likelihood of owners going this route through aftermarket will heavily be dependant on what Porsche delivers in the production model. To me it looks like they've been using a variant of a Panamera test shell for the road going mules.

I yet to see one car on the road that looks good with matte black paint job. I have seen many expensive vehicles painted this way. conceptually ok, but in reality just plain ugly! Always look like a black primer.

I don't know. I think I've seen some great matte-black cars. Probably just personal taste. Plus, I feel like the matte-black is played out now.

If the Taycan was offered in a trim that looked as wild as the GT2 RS, sure.
I see it as an electrified Panamera sedan and would be happy with most colors offered on that model.
IMO, matte is doing the Taycan's design a disservice.

Hopefully one day we do get a Taycan GT2 RS or something along those lines!

I don't see a "GT2 RS" Taycan happening anytime sooner than an all-electric 918 successor.

If it would happen the other way around I'd like to hear why

So far, Porsche seems more interested in offering the latest and greatest with flagship models before more mainstream types like the Taycan.
