This Widebody Porsche Taycan Rendering Will Scratch Your NFS Underground Itch

This is what a Porsche Taycan could look like if it is featured in the next Need for Speed Underground game

Sometimes you see something on the internet and think “why don’t they make it in real life?” This is exactly the case, at least to us, for this Porsche Taycan RWB rendering, which looks like it belongs in the latest “Need for Speed” game. The project is actually done by a digital designer that goes by the name “Shashank Das”. In fact, not long ago, we featured another creation of his – an orange widebody Mazda RX-7, quite similar to what we see here, in terms of modifications.

With the recent coverage on the fan-made “Need for Speed Underground 2 Remastered” trailer, we think the Taycan will certainly be a good addition to the car park of the next “Need for Speed” game, maybe as a (free) DLC car. We can’t wait to see people do engine swaps on it, for the sake of sound, if that happens – in case you don’t know, NFS Heat allows you to do engine swaps.

In any case, Shashank Das has done the full RWB treatment to the Porsche EV and we think Nakai San would be proud of the result. And who knows, maybe it could inspire a future project. We’d like to see that.

You’ve probably gotten used to seeing crazy 911-based Rauch-Welt Begriff (RWB) projects, but the Taycan certainly provides a lot to work with.

The much more pronounced wheel arches are filled by the new deep-dish multi-spoke wheels, no doubt wrapped in high-performance rubber.

The front end has a new bumper design, along with a big front splitter and canards. At the back, we see a new carbon-fiber diffuser and a big rear wing of the same material.

Overall, the Taycan has adopted a more 911-like silhouette and gives us some idea of what a Porsche Taycan GT2 RS might look like. Although Porsche would probably not make anything like this, we think it’s a matter of time before we see a Porsche Taycan RWB in the real world.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
