This is what a hardcore Porsche Taycan RSR could look like.
Last year, Porsche unveiled the all-new 911 RSR that will compete in the FIA Endurance Championship and build on the automaker's racing success after the previous model secured class victories in the 2019 FIA World Endurance Championship and the 24 Hours of Le Mans. With a 4.2-liter boxer six producing around 515 horsepower depending on regulations, the new 991 RSR is the fastest track-tuned Porsche 911 ever.
This Porsche Taycan track racer, on the other hand, would be significantly more powerful if it went into production. What you're looking at is the work of render artist Aksyonov Nikita, who has envisioned what a hardcore Porsche Taycan RSR could look like.
Nikita's render borrows cues from the Taycan and 911 RSR race car. At the front, the hypothetical Taycan RSR features the same headlights as its road car sibling, but the front fascia has been upgraded with a prominent central intake, while exposed latches adorn the hood. Compared to the road car, the imagined Taycan RSR features just one windshield wiper.
At the back, however, the Taycan RSR mimics the look of a 911 race car since the rear doors have been removed, while a massive wing and a large diffuser improve the aerodynamics to enable the Taycan RSR to set some blistering lap times on the race track.
In stock form, the range-topping Porsche Taycan Turbo S produces 750 hp and 774 lb-ft of torque. This enables the electric sedan to rocket from 0-62 mph in just 2.6 seconds, but motorsport regulations would likely restrict the power output if the Taycan RSR went into production.
Pricing for the Porsche Taycan starts at $103,800 for the entry-level 4S model, $150,900 for the Turbo model, and $185,000 for the Turbo S model. Deliveries were originally slated to kick off this month but have been delayed by several weeks.
