Techart Gives Porsche Taycan Bold Rework with Custom Materials

Electrify your Taycan's interior

  • New exterior bodywork just the start of changes

  • Interior gets extensive new custom choices


The Porsche tuners at Techart have put their stylists, designers, and engineers to work on the automaker’s electric Taycan sedan. The result is a new set of wheels, upgrades to the interior, and new bodywork that’s wind-tunnel tested and race track proven.

They’re subtle changes for the Porsche Taycan, on the outside of the car, at least. The front gets a revised bumper to pair with the new side skirts and a slightly more aggressive rear diffuser. They’ve been computer designed and wind tunnel tested, more important with an EV than ever, but they are certainly more to the subtle side than we’d expect from any big Porsche tuner.

The same goes for the new wheels, offered in 22-inch diameter with 10-inch wide front and 11-inch wide rear fitment. Thin spokes offer low weight and a good look at the colossal brakes Porsche has fitted to the car, but it is again, still quite subtle.

Maybe that’s because they’ve packed all of the audaciousnesses into the interior of the Taycan with electric green contrast trimming on, well, everything. The custom Techart steering wheel, the seats, the rear seats, cup holders, even the floor mats are ringed with green. Though you can get other colours and choose from a whole list of alternate materials, picking the Porsche signature electric shade seems the obvious choice. More than the extra trim, Techart uses Alcantara and leather throughout the vehicle and puts its logo on the door panels as well as the seatbacks.

We’ve yet to see increased performance options for the Taycan, and sadly most other EVs, but here’s to hoping Techart takes this in hand as well.
