Vivid Racing just proved that less is more with this amazing carbon fiber aero kit for the Porsche Taycanby Robert Moore, on LISTEN 02:35
As a Porshce, the Taycan is naturally a sporty looking vehicle, but the aftermarket world would argue that a car can always look better. That’s why we’ve seen cars like the Porsche Taycan by Techart or the Porsche Taycan Turbo S by Prior Design. In fact, there are quite a few tuners out there beefing up the Taycan’s chops and even working to extract more power from its electric powertrain, but what if you want just a little extra aerodynamic dominance? What if you want a humble dose of carbon fiber? Well, then you should check out this carbon fiber aero kit form Vivid Racing!
Vivid Racing – Adding Heaps of Style With A Humble Dose of Carbon Fiber
While tuners like Hennessey focus mainly on extracting power, companies like Prior Design and even Techart can go well beyond typical OEM styling, and that’s just not for everyone. Sometimes you just want to look a little different or have a bit of extra style, and that’s where Vivid Racing comes into play.
This new carbon fiber aero kit is minimalistic enough that it puts an emphasis on the concept that less really can be more.
The company has done such a good job from fit and finish to overall design that the kit could be mistaken for an optional kit from Porsche. But, it’s not, and the company took an entire year to perfect it.
The main elements of this kit are the new spoiler lip, side skirts, and rear diffuser, but the real highlight here is the new trunk lid spoiler. This definitely harkens back to Porsches classic ducktail spoiler that was introduced back in the early 1970s.
The company hasn’t explicitly said it, but as you can see from the image above, it’s pretty clear where the inspiration was taken from, and I’d be wrong for not saying that it fits the Taycan very, very well.
All of these parts can be had in either a glossy finish or a forged carbon finish, and there’s also a selection of 21- and 22-inch wheels to choose from and a lowering kit for the standard air suspension that kind of help round out the package. The cool part is, however, that you can either buy the whole kit or you can buy the pieces you want individually. So, if you only want the spoiler, you can do that. However, there is likely a discount for buying the whole package over buying individual pieces, and that package will set you back about $6,000. So, what do you think? Does this kit do as much justice to the Taycan as I think it does?
