Starting with a new set of wheels.
TechArt is one of the most prolific Porsche aftermarket tuners in the world. The tuner has taken the last-generation Porsche 911 to new extremes and has already begun modifying the 992-generation Porsche 911 Carrera. Now, the tuner is working its magic on the Porsche Taycan, the German automaker's first-ever fully electric car.
TechArt has unveiled its new personalization program for the Porsche Taycan 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S that enhances the exterior. From this August, Porsche Taycan owners will be able to replace the electric sports car's standard wheels with a set of lightweight forged aluminum wheels dubbed the 'TechArt Formula VI.'
Measuring 10.0 x 22 inches at the front and 11.5 x 22 inches at the rear, these forged aluminium wheels can be further customized with single and multi-color paint finishes, an optional gloss front surface, and colored accents. TechArt's custom Taycan wheels shown in the photos feature a stunning silver finish. Pricing details for these new wheels haven't been announced, but the Porsche Taycan 4S, Turbo, and Turbo S start at $103,800, $150,900, and $185,000 respectively.
This is the only upgrade TechArt is offering so far, but be rest assured the tuner is already working to improve the Taycan's aerodynamics and performance.
The tuner says it's working on a new tuning package that will enhance the styling and aerodynamic design with new carbon fiber parts and trims. The interior will also be upgraded with new, higher quality materials. Design renders previewing these modifications show the Taycan fitted with a large rear wing and a more aggressive front fascia.
TechArt is certainly going to have its work cut out to improve the Taycan's performance, as the range-topping Taycan Turbo S is no slouch. A dual-motor setup produces 750 horsepower and 774 lb-ft of torque, enabling the Taycan Turbo S to hit 0-62 mph in just 2.6 seconds and a top speed of 161 mph.
