It Looks Fab, But A Porsche Taycan GT3 Is Just A Dream – For Now

The Taycan is one of the most important Porsche models for a long, long time and the future of the brand’s electrified vehicles will largely depend on how the innovative sedan is received by customers.

While the Taycan will debut later this year, Porsche is remaining rather mum when it comes to specifications and what kind of variants it will be sold in. One version we’re certain we will never, ever see is a GT3 – but one cannot stop people from daydreaming.

The following rendering comes courtesy of the Taycan EV Forum. Like the 911 GT3, the hardcore electric sedan depicted includes an overhauled front fascia with an enlarged grille and a large splitter. Additionally, the Taycan has been fitted with wheels straight from the 911 GT3 as well as the same large carbon ceramic brakes and yellow calipers. Final alterations include extended side skirts and a large fixed rear wing.

Porsche has already revealed that it will offer three versions: the Taycan, Taycan 4S, and Taycan Turbo. While the first two are self-explanatory to anyone familiar with Weissach’s naming scheme, the Turbo is a bit confusing, as it will still be a battery electric and, thus, will have no turbochargers at all. Guess that this has been chosen to indicate that the dual electric motors, which will reportedly put out over 600 hp in entry-level guise, will have an even higher output in the Turbo.

Come to think of it, if they will make a Turbo without any turbos, why not a more driver focused, GT-prepped (and badged) version too? Just sayin’…

    No.

    Why would we never see a GT3 version? One thing we know about Porsche is they will fill every single price point. I agree with none during the first generation most likely, but to say that they will never produce a GT3 is naive.

  • no25

    Doesn’t look “fab” at all.

  • heavystarch

    I think it looks badass. More like a GT4 class of car but I don’t know.

  • ksegg

    That looks awful. Can Porsche not AMG-ify its range please?

  • BrucieBruce

    Yes Yes Yes! Way cool, and very much doable. What’s not to like if you’re in the market for a 4 door EV and want a little flash. I approve of this model, and hope Porsche considers something like it in the future.

    • Tumbi Mtika

      That is NOT THE POINT OF THE GT LINE.
      AT ALL. Those wings and body kits aren’t for show.

      • mattster

        So what’s the point of the GT line according to Tumbi?

  • They will make the Taycan GT3 for sure. I tried to reserve one, but Porsche told me that all units were already called for.
