Mansory is back with some aftermarket upgrades to the Porsche Taycan. The infamous tuner certainly likes to go wild at times, but for his version of a dressy Taycan, the layout is actually quite modest. In this case, modest is a very good approach for Porsche’s electric supercar, in more ways than one. More on that in a bit.
The standard operating procedure for any Mansory upgrade is carbon fiber, and you’ll find plenty of it here. The front splitter is accented with forged carbon, with more forged carbon around the headlights and a wide, narrow vent on the nose of the Taycan reminiscent of a 911 GT3. The forged carbon rocker panels are part of the body kit, stretching towards the rear where more carbon is found for the rear apron and diffuser, with a small lip spoiler at the top. The side mirrors also get the forged carbon treatment, and a pair of thin carbon strips covering the front fenders and doors add some character to the Taycan’s profile.
It’s impossible for Mansory not to improve the wheels, and this Porsche is no exception. A set of Y.5 one-piece alloy rims are bolted front and rear, all measuring 22 inches in diameter although the rear wheels are slightly wider. Mansory says the thin-spoke design helps dissipate heat from the brakes, which remain original but can be aesthetically upgraded with painted calipers in any color you choose. This complements the exterior upgrades.

Inside, Mansory is a bit shy with photos of possible greenhouse improvements, but the company emphasizes customization to customer taste is the order of the day. As such, carbon inlays and leather treatment on just about any surface are offered, and of course you can have contrast stitching in all kinds of wild colors. Handwheels and door sills personalized with the Mansory brand are also available.
Going for minor upgrades over flamboyant body kits serves a very important purpose in the world of electric vehicles. Bolting on elements that increase drag will have a significant effect on the range of the vehicle, and you can’t just increase the boost or plug in a new tune to increase battery life. In this case, keeping things sweet is not just a matter of taste, but of necessity. And we’re fine with that.
