UPDATE: We received even more Taycan spy shots. Rather than the GT, these photos catch Porsche working on the refreshed Taycan sedan and Cross Turismo wagon.
The vehicles have significant concealment over the front fascia, suggesting there are big design changes to this area. Smaller bits of concealment are on the back of the sedan.

This new gallery of spy shots suggests that a new variant of the Porsche Taycan is on the way. Judging from the styling that's visible, this might be a sporty GT version of the electric sedan.
This Taycan has a splitter underneath the opening in the nose. Black tape conceals wider elements on each outer edge. It looks like there might be a canard beneath the headlights. A big sensor is on the roof above the windshield.

From the side, you can see this vehicle has a prominent roll cage and racing seat in the cabin. Porsche often installs these safety components on vehicles during testing but removes them for the production version.
This Taycan rides on a set of wheels with a complex design that has five spokes with cutouts in them. There's a mix of a dark and machined finish. The big, yellow calipers indicate this car has carbon-ceramic brakes
At the back, Porsche adds a fixed wing to the tail, and there's a small decklid spoiler. The parts give this Taycan a more aggressive appearance. Below the bumper, there are vanes for the diffuser on each side.
The modifications suggest this is a meaner Taycan, but the exact identity is still a mystery. While there are lots of variants of the EV already available, Porsche doesn't yet offer a full GT variant.
In August, the Taycan Turbo S set a new lap record for EVs around the Nürburgring Nordschleife. It rounded the 20.8-kilometer (12.9-mile) configuration in 7 minutes and 33.3 seconds. This was enough to take the crown from the Tesla Model S with a time of 7:35.
Porsche has been gradually improving the Taycan. A software update for 2020 to 2022 models and standard on the 2023 offers significant range increases. For example, the EPA estimate for a Taycan Turbo Cross Turismo improves to 233 miles from the previous 204 miles.
