Indistinguishable from the Turbo S.

(Esp since it's the same height as the Turbo S)

That is insane, didn't know you could do that!

Also explains a few Taycan models which I can't see the rear badging for
Apparently, this is an option available on every Porsche. I park next to two 911s in the morning and neither of them has a model designation.

most German cars you can do that. There is often a tendency to race more powerful models of the same car on the autobahn and also the more expensive models are more attractive to steal. So when you order you can ask to delete the model designation which makes your more expensive, or in this case less expensive car indistinguishable form the masses. :)

Amusing that the reason that I thought people would want to do this in the US is for the opposite reason -- to make it less clear that they purchased a lower trim!

Indistinguishable from the Turbo S.
Different headlights (you forgot to tick the box for the matrix headlights)
Different lower front aero design
Lower front aero in black plastic (not carbon fiber like the S)
Side skirts are painted body color like the Turbo (not carbon fiber like the S)
Different lower rear bumper than the Turbo or Turbo S
No Turbo logo in headrest
No stainless pedals

But to your "average Joe" who doesn't know a thing about Porsche's it doesn't matter how you spec it if you remove the badge at the back they will have no clue except for what you decide to tell them

Fair point, there are several small differences, but specced properly, it looks like a gorgeous low-slung 4 door sportscar whether it's in Turbo, Turbo S, or 4S
