I ordered a new Mamba Green 4S after reliving some amazing memories from my two day Porsche Sport Driving School during a test drive. No words can actually explain what a Taycan feels like, you just need to drive it.

My next dilemma after designing my car was the wheels, I am not the biggest fan of the 20” wheel options until I started playing around with design using my Apple Pencil and tried blacking out some of the spokes that could be done with paint or pinstripe vinyl. Let me know your thoughts before I start finding my local stripe guy or if anyone has tried something like this in any wheels in the past.

That actually looks really good!
Have any ideas on how to alter the stock 19 inch wheels?

Really awesome!!! But what would this look like up close? And what about durability over time?

Taycan Turbo - If and when it ever shows up.

Awesome!! Much nicer than the original IMO. I like the original, but that basic design has been around for a while and is getting tired.

Wow! Very creative. I'm sure you could get those sections powder coated if you really wanted extreme durability. But what an improvement! They look terrific.

Thanks for the feedback everyone - I truly appreciate. I just have to wait 3-5 months before I can post the after pictures. Social Porsche acceptance is nice to have when we can only distance.

I like what you've done there. I think it makes them look better. I wish you luck in making it look as good IRL.

Im pretty sure I will get this done. Thanks for the great Idea. I will take it to my local wrapping guy to see if that will do it as a temp version. Dont want to do a permanent thing in case it affects the GFV when returned to Porsche
