- 3 variants of the Sport Design package
- 21″ Exclusive Design wheels with carbon aeroblades
- LED matrix headlights with Glacier Ice Blue elements
- A Carbon interior package
- Options to finish the front and rear door trims in the exterior colour
- Seat belts in Graphite Blue, Truffle Brown, Lime Beige, Crayon, Blackberry, Meranti Brown, Slate Grey and Bordeaux Red.
Here’s the press release with more.
The first all-electric sports car from Porsche can be painstakingly hand-finished with high-quality components and special equipment packages for the exterior and interior to achieve an even higher degree of personalisation. The highlights among the 90 exclusive options offered by the company’s own manufactory in Zuffenhausen include the Sport Design package in three variants and 21-inch Exclusive Design wheels with carbon aeroblades. The LED matrix headlights with elements in Glacier Ice Blue are particularly eye-catching.
The Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur in Zuffenhausen has extended its capacities to coincide with the launch of the Taycan: the factory space was expanded by a third to 2,000 square metres and four new lifting platform workstations were added. 150 square metres of storage space was also created and the vehicle logistics were optimised with a direct connection to the finished vehicle loading facility. The team has also grown with the additional vehicle finishing experts.
Exterior: Headlights with daytime running light elements in Glacier Ice Blue
For an even more dynamic look, three variants of the Sport Design package are available: they differ with respect to the inlays in the lower front apron, in the sill panels and in the side fins of the diffuser. Depending on the package, these are painted in the exterior colour or in Black (high-gloss) or are made of carbon.
The LED matrix headlights with Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) are available with a three-dimensional circuit board graphic in the headlight housing as well as daytime running light elements in Glacier Ice Blue from the Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur. The 21-inch Exclusive Design wheels with aeroblades made from forged and milled carbon combine excellent aerodynamics with lightweight construction: The weight reduction per wheel set is more than three kilograms compared with a similar wheel variant.
Sporty, high-quality atmosphere in the interior
The Carbon interior package is inspired by motor sports: large areas in the front and rear doors as well as trim elements on the sides of the centre console are finished in matt carbon. The accent package also offers a choice of contrasting colours in the interior, with the front and rear door trims painted in the exterior colour. The Taycan’s sporty character is accentuated by the seat belts available in the colours Graphite Blue, Truffle Brown, Lime Beige, Crayon, Blackberry, Meranti Brown, Slate Grey and Bordeaux Red.
