Yuk! Not a fan of those wheels. Original style are much nicer I think.

Don’t particularly like the shape of the car either.

This is bound to divide opinion, beauty is in the eye of the beholder and all that

Here is a comparison of the wheels side by side. They look similar to the taycan exclusive wheels but the silver part is more triangular and less elongated than on the Taycan exclusive wheels.

Now that we're talking about this, are these wheels directional?
Left opposite to right according to fan blades?

It looks directional, yes. The charger is in the left side of the picture meaning that the large part of the (not included) blade will deflect wind, much like the Taycan Exclusive wheels.

If you look at the first pics, the left side is the same as the right side so not directional.
I should've looked at the pics in the first post in the first place, sorry.

Yeah, the wheels are asymmetric but it doesn't seem to matter.

Are you joking? This is the best design! But I want it to be a little higher.

Looks like a squished Macan with the Taycan front end strapped to it. Feels like it's close to working but doesn't quite work. Maybe it'll look better in a different color.

Just love the shape and to have the Taycan performance with a bit more space is my absolute sweet spot.

I don’t think it will carry lighter colours so well, but let’s see once we can get it on the configurator and then in real life.

New wheel design spotted on pre-production Taycan Cross Turismo.

Correction per @TAYC4S -- these are the 21" exclusive wheels without the blades installed.

The problem with this "design" is that the designers simply slammed a new "crossover" rear-end design onto the Taycan, when a change to the front-end is also needed. If the front-end was higher and squared off a bit it would create a more balanced look from front to back.

At the moment the cross looks as goofy as the BMW M Couple - a car/crossover that had no idea what it wanted to be.

I don’t mind the shape, but it’s riding far too high - I want a Sport Turismo not a Cross Turismo I.e. a more spacious/practical Taycan, not an SUV Taycan.
