Porsche Taycan Turbo GT on the prowl: Stuttgart’s ultimate EV spotted

Published: 14 September 2023

► Taycan goes extreme
► Almost no camouflage

► 1000bhp EV could debut at upcoming Rennsport event

This is your best look yet at Porsche’s ultimate Taycan. We’ve caught Stuttgart’s ultimate, big-winged EV testing before, but this is the first time our spy photographers have snapped it without any camouflage at all. First impressions? It’s a Taycan, but now on high-performance, lightweight GT pills.

What’s new?

Stuttgart has been pretty sparing with the camouflage, and that means we get to see the fastest Taycan’s face without camouflage for the first time. The headlights have been redesigned to a pointier, less pill-like shape, while a new front apron looks to channel air in a more aggressive way. There’s a front splitter too, adding to the more aggressive stance of what’s currently being called the Taycan Turbo GT.

It’s a similar affair at the rear: there’s the huge wing we’ve already seen, but it’s joined by new rear lights, a redesigned bumper (complete with extra fake vents) and what looks to be a larger diffuser. 

But it’s not all addition – Stuttgart has subtracted too, taking away the charging port on the left-hand side. You’re likely looking at a GT-badged car, so any bit of weight-saving helps. It might have over 1000bhp, but the less weight it has to carry, the better.

A lack of camouflage usually suggests that a car is nearing a debut, and a quick glance at a calendar reveals Porsche’s Rennsport Reunion 7 at Laguna Seca is just around the corner.

We’ll update this story when we know more.
