Porsche Taycan now available with Exclusive Manufaktur options

The all-electric Porsche Taycan can now be had with factory tweaks both inside and out, but for a cost… 

As if Porsche didn't already offer enough options for the new electric Taycan, it's now applied the Exclusive Manufaktur treatment as it does with its more iconic petrol-powered models. New options can be had both inside and out, helping buyers to make their Taycan stand out without a sports exhaust system specify. 

The most significant option of the 90 available is the new Sport Design package, available in either gloss black, or carbon fibre. The package tweaks both front and rear bumpers for a more aggressive look, and will cost up to £3282 for the carbon fibre option on the range-topping Taycan Turbo S

To match the bodywork, a 21” Exclusive Design wheel design can be optioned that combines forged alloy construction and carbonfibre aero covers. These wheels not only have a new look, but also reduce unsprung weight by 3kg, and improve on the standard wheel’s aerodynamic efficiency.

As a subtle reminder as to the Taycan’s source of power, Exclusive Manufaktur can add ‘3D circuit board graphics’ to the headlight clusters, alongside Glacier Blue highlights. 

It wouldn't be modern-day car customisation without a few interior carbonfibre trinkets, with an optional matte carbon trim package for the door cards, dash and centre console. Like all Porsche models, the interior trim can also be specified in the exterior colour on top of the usual array of optional wood, brushed alloy or gloss black finish.

Yet more carbonfibre can be added to the steering wheel (complimented by Alcantara-esque Race-tex trim), and even the wing mirrors can be constructed from the material - for a hefty £1000. Other interior tweaks on offer include new seat belt colours for £345, ranging from Graphite Blue and Truffle Brown, to Bordeaux Red and Lime Beige.

If you’d like to see your initials every time you step in or out of your Taycan, £1900 will afford you customised, carbon fibre sill plates (also available in aluminium for marginally less). 

Although power increases have been offered for previous models, none are yet to be launched for the all-electric Taycan. With its over-the-air updates, Tesla has proven that EVs can see such upgrades, however, so perhaps it’s something we might see in time.
