    It's still a Sketch from the Desing Studios in Weissach, but it's indeed a headlight from the Taycan.

    The production car has the free Floating led Lights as the Mission E (the test mules still have a glass Panel in front of them - but it will be gone in the finished Version).

    Only difference to the production car is: the finished Version will have the following part in a dark Grey/black Colour and not in the Exterieur colour:

    This lighting unit design is a nice bit of jewelry.

    @PAG_J1 , do you expect this to be the standard spec or a cost option upgrade?

    Thanks @PAG_J1; without the glass panel they look stunning, wasn’t expecting that to make production

    It really does look very nice, but I suspect it will be difficult to clean. Consider all the bug splatter in those nooks between lighting units. My fingers feel bruised already!

    There's a glass panel in front those individual lighting units.

    Yes, if you look closely there is a nearly upright glass panel almost flush with the lights. I believe what our friend PAG1 is referring to is the clear plastic panel on the mules covering the entire light and duct opening that follows the fender line. If this is gone, and the lights are as shown by PAG1, I think it will look stunning. Cleaning will be a bit more difficult, but hopefully not too bad.

    Is it me or is a similar, silver color to the headlight teaser hiding under the camo in this spy shot? Also, from what I can tell, there is not an additional glass/plastic covering around the lights and attached to the body. That’s clearly decals to trick the eye.

    Porsche seems committed to the 4 element design as a semi-distinguishing characteristic of Porsche vehicles.
    Just my opinion but forcing that concept into the famously round 911 headlamps makes absolutely no sense to me.
    I guess it works here.........as one of the few bold Mission E features that will make it to build.
