Therefore, the electric car will be equipped with unique features, both for the exterior and the cabin. We all know that Taycan is the first-ever EV built by the famous German company. Well, the main goal of the Porsche Taycan is to compete against Tesla Modes S, which has been a leader of the premium electric class for years. The range-topping version of the EV will be the Turbo S. However, depending on the market, Porsche will also offer Turbo and 4S versions.
Porsche Taycan Manufaktur Design
2020 Porsche Taycan is getting three different variants of the Sport Design package, wit a special treatment and appearance of the front apron, side fins of the diffuser, and sill panels. Moreover, depending on the customer’s choice, they’ll get the package finished in the same shade as the vehicle, high gloss black, or carbon fiber. Also, there will be a 3D circuit board graphic for the LED matrix headlights, with Dynamic Light System Plus in the housing.
On top of that, the Taycan will include DRLs in Glacier Ice Blue as well. Lastly, this premium EV will ride on the 21-inch Exclusive Design wheels with aero blades, which are made of forged and milled carbon. Besides the exterior design, the vehicle will be lighter, approximately 7 pounds (3 kg). The majority of the front and rear door cards, trim elements on the side of the center console too, will have a matte carbon look on the inside. But, if the customer wants it different, they can be painted in the same color as the rest of the exterior.
One of the best features of the cabin is the brand-new seatbelt options, which will be available in six shades – Slate Grey, Blackberry, Crayon, Bordeaux Red, Lime Beige, Truffle Brown, and Graphite Blue. Also, besides the design, the Manufaktur stated that the factory space is expanding by a third. That means that the factory area will be 21,528 square feet (2,000 square meters). Also, the workforce is extended as well, alongside four brand-new lifting platforms and larger storage space.
