Carbon Fiber Kit Gives Porsche Taycan Some Serious Attitude

Tuning / Comments

It's got the looks to match its stunning acceleration.

Porsche took its time designing the fully electric Taycan sedan. Details like the strong-selling Taycan's front air curtains and its flat underbody contribute to it offering the best drag coefficient of all existing Porsche models. This is an important factor in keeping energy consumption low and ensuring a decent driving range. None of this really matters to Vivid Racing, a tuning company that just revealed an aggressive carbon fiber aero kit for the Taycan that gives it a far sportier appearance. VR said it wanted to make sure it designed a kit that "simply blew away others" and it seems they've pulled this off.

The kit is made up of parts like a large front lip and sporty side skirts, while the rear view is embellished with a large rear diffuser and a rear wing. Along with a larger set of VR forged wheels, this is one of the nicest Taycans we've seen. The parts seem to gel together very well and, at least from the photos, the fit and finish looks superb. That can be attributed to the fact that VR took the time to 3D scan factory parts from the Taycan Turbo. From there, some sketches were composed and the parts they liked most were 3D printed for testing. The team used a 2x2 carbon twill weave and the parts are protected from UV rays with a glossy clear coat.

This Taycan also has a chrome delete kit, Pirelli tires, and VR Performance lowering links. If you don't like the glossy look, a forged carbon fiber finish to the kit is also available. It's not clear what impact all these changes would have on the Taycan's efficiency and range, but they do a fantastic job of spicing up the looks. Yes, there are more subtle Taycan aero kits out there but VR has stopped short of going overboard.

VR says that parts can be purchased individually or you can go for the full kit at a price of around $6,000. Considering that Porsche will sell you a much more subtle SportDesign Package in Carbon Fiber for the Taycan at $9,560, VR's own aero kit looks like good value.
