Rendering Shows Stunning Taycan-Inspired Porsche GT1 Car

This is the best rendering you'll see all day

  • Combines modern Porsche with best of 1990s GT racing

  • Massive-fender, big wing electric


The Porsche Taycan EV has done a pretty great job presenting itself as being a genuine performance Porsche. It is still missing one thing, though, that is a key part of the brand. A racing version. Thanks to a new rendering, that has changed. If you’ve ever wondered what a Le Mans-ready version of the Taycan would look like, check out this stunner.

It’s from Spanish designer Hakosan Design, and the renderings of the car were recently posted to Instagram. The idea is for a Taycan (or a Taycan-inspired 911) that is ready for the GT1 category that provided some absolutely amazing racing at Le Mans in the late 1990s. Like the Porsche 911 GT1, it offers massive bodywork and an even larger wing but has some of the Taycan’s best features too.

The creator envisions 1,500 hp and a range of 700 km, though we’d expect less than that if used on track. The study enhances the nose of the Taycan, keeping its headlights and side vents but making those vents much, much larger. That, combined with a new front splitter and canards would add significant downforce to the car. Plus the massive new fenders would be able to hold suitably beefy race slicks.

A center-mount single wiper brings the Le Mans style, as does the deep hood extractor vent. At the side, this has been shrunk down to become a two-door coupe, with side sills sticking out beyond the width of the front tires to boost downforce and feed cool air to the rear brakes. At the back, of course, is a massive wing, a spoiler, and a rear diffuser to optimize aerodynamics and grip.

All that’s left is to convince Porsche to build it.
