The Taycan EV Forum has discovered patent images that Porsche filed with the EUIPO showing a new model that bears a very strong resemblance to that concept. Only this time, it sports gullwing doors. The split rear glass window, round headlights, and a dual exhaust system are also present. There are a few other design changes, most noticeably the series of exposed slit vents directly behind the doors. Originally, there was a panel covering them.
The patent’s filing is dated this month, so isn’t something that’s been sitting around undiscovered for a while. But why would Porsche file this patent, which doesn’t expire until February 2026, right now?
