Porsche Taycan - exterior design

Porsche Taycan - exterior design


With the Centre launch of the all new Porsche Taycan later this month, let’s take a closer look at the exterior design elements that ensure the Taycan is a true Porsche.

Breaking new ground in the best Porsche design tradition – that was the brief for designing the Taycan. As it was designed as a fully electric vehicle from the outset, new freedoms opened up for the designers. But at the same time, the first all-electrically powered Porsche had to be immediately recognisable as a Porsche.

The result is an emotionally charged, four-door sports saloon that carries the unmistakeable Porsche design DNA. Its silhouette is defined by the sporty roofline sloping downward to the rear – known as the flyline - and the characteristic sculpted side sections.

The Taycan is 1,966 millimetres wide, but only around 1,380 millimetres high. From the front, it therefore looks particularly wide and flat. Due to the compact drive components, the bonnet slopes down at a flat angle between the two highly pronounced wings, a feature typical for Porsche.

The sleek cabin (the greenhouse), the drawn-in C-pillar and the pronounced shoulders all result in a typically Porsche, sharply emphasised rear. At the same time, with its clean, pure approach and innovative elements such as the Porsche lettering in glass-effect in the rear light bar, the Taycan signals that a new era has begun.
