This is a modern, distinctive design without being too far out of the mainstream. Traditional Porsche design elements abound. The wide hips, arched fenders, four-point running lights, full width rear taillights, and even the sloped roof profile. All Porsche. From a bit of a distance, and just a little imagination, the Taycan almost looks like a 911 sedan especially from the side. I really liked the look, although the black-painted front air intake vents under the headlights seem an unnecessary distraction. These stood out on this white vehicle but would be much less noticeable with a darker color paint.
This Taycan came with the optional 20-in Taycan Turbo Aero wheels ($2380). 19-inch wheels are standard, and I actually prefer the look of the standard wheels. Again, personal preference.
Similar to the Cayman and Boxster, the Taycan has two luggage compartments. Comparatively, the Taycan’s frunk is much smaller, and the rear trunk is substantially larger, than its mid-engine family members. There is certainly enough space for a weekend -or longer- road trip for a couple who packs efficiently. The back seat is usable for normal size adults, and foot-room is improved by the spaces carved out of the floor underneath the front seats.
