Porsche Taycan to receive aerodynamic upgrades from TechArt 

German tuner TechArt set to apply aesthetic and performance-enhancing modifications to the all-electric Porsche Taycan

German-based tuner TechArt has been fettling Porsches for decades, so it only seems right that it should turn its hand to the all-new, all-electric Taycan. Though powertrain upgrades are unlikely to surface any time soon, it already has plans to add a suite of new aerodynamics components, wheels and cabin upgrades. 

The Taycan’s source of power may be divisive, but there’s little doubt that it is an attractive machine from the get-go. Nevertheless, TechArt has plenty of aesthetics modifications up its sleeve, beginning with a set of lightweight 22-inch ‘Formula VI’ forged wheels that can be fitted to all current Taycan variants.

> New Porsche Taycan review - Stuttgart puts its stamp on the electric car era

Though still under development, new components to enhance the model’s aerodynamics are also in the pipeline, and are being developed in a wind tunnel to maximise performance. As you’d expect, various other trim pieces finished in carbonfibre will be on offer too, with further performance-enhancing modifications to come in due course. 

Though details are yet to be confirmed, the brand is keen to give customers free rein when it comes to customisation, so you’ll likely be able to reupholster the cabin in virtually any colour one could dream of, and new leather and fabric options are said to be in the works. Should the factory paint finish not be to your taste, the tuner will also offer fresh single and multi-colour paint finishes.

Due to the nature of an electric powertrain, adding more power after the fact is a tricky task. Some tech-savvy drivers have managed to crack the system in cars such as Tesla’s Model 3, unlocking more power than originally intended. However, it might be some time before we see the same for Porsche’s Taycan. 

If you’re keen to set your Taycan apart from the rest, Techart’s new 22-inch forged wheels will be available to order from August, with details on further modifications to be announced at a later date.
