Reasonably acceptably nice kit. Complete kit: 6kUSD

All except the wing looks OK to me.

VR Aero Porsche Taycan Carbon Fiber Aero Kit First Look – Massive Photo Dump!

Just a year ago, our special order Porsche Taycan Turbo was picked up from Chandler Porsche here in Arizona (we made a video):). Previous to us receiving it, we were fortunate enough to start our R&D process using one of their demo cars. What could we do with the Porsche Taycan? Bigger turbos, louder exhaust, and… just kidding checking to see if you are reading! We wanted to design an aero kit that simply blew away others.
So this is what we did!




But how did we get there?

We started the aero kit design by 3D scanning the factory Taycan Turbo parts. From their we sketched out some designs we like and began to design them in Solidworks.

After testing a couple 3D printed parts, it was time for production.

With the advancement of technology and partnering with a proper carbon fiber manufacturer, we believe we have one of the best aero kits available for the Porsche Taycan. Consisting of a front lip, side skirts, rear diffuser, and rear wing, all these parts give the Taycan an even more aggressive look. The carbon fiber is done as a wet lay-up process using standard 2×2 carbon twill weave. Each piece features high quality glossy clear coat to protect it from UV rays.

The samples arrived and we did the install on our Taycan Turbo here at Vivid Racing. Installation consisted of 3M double sided tape, using OEM fitting holes, and additional self tapping screws through the underside of the front bumper and side skirts. All parts lined up perfect as expected.

A picture says 1000 words… These say 1 trillion as the carbon fiber aero kit combined with our other VR products just looks stunning! Mod list includes:

All of these VR Aero parts for the Porsche Taycan will be available in both a glossy carbon fiber finish as well as forged carbon fiber. Parts will be available to be purchased separately or the full kit for about $6000.

Anyone purchase this? Considering only the rear diffuser.

I'm hesitant as I don't want to mess with the aerodynamics that Porsche Engineers have created.

https://newsroom.porsche.com/en/products/taycan/aerodynamics-18554.html
" At the rear in particular, the aerodynamics experts have succeeded in making use of the freedom offered by a fully electric vehicle by implementing an extremely wide rear diffuser. This creates aerodynamic efficiency: the perfect combination of low drag and reduced lift."

That being said, I am not tracking it and just a standard driver.

If it was a tad smaller, I would buy it without hesitation. I like how the rear diffuser uses OEM bolts and double sided tape - so no drilling. Where the other items (minus the rear spoiler) requiring drilling.
