Mark Webber plays on the Porsche configurator – these are the results
After Porsche's tribe scribes built their dream Taycan on the official Porsche configurator, tribe leader Mark Webber felt compelled to do one better
Ok – configuring a car like the Taycan isn’t a difficult thing to get right, despite what my team here might have you believe. It’s a super-clean looking car already, so I’ve kept it very understated with Dolomite Silver. I’m actually extremely traditional and conservative when it comes to colours.
In terms of the big-ticket options, the first box ticked for me was the Carbon SportDesign Package. I haven’t actually seen this in the metal before, but it gives the front a very different feel, which is cool. And I love a panoramic roof. All that glass really tops it off, inside or out.
Wheels are crucial too. It’s a personal thing of course, but you can do a horrendous job with the wheels if you’re not careful. The blades on these 21-inch Taycan Exclusive options look so sharp in black though, especially against the exterior paint. And I’ve opted to finish the brake callipers in black too. It’s a little detail, but makes all the difference.
Inside, there was only one way for me to go. Black and Slate Grey compliments what’s going on outside and I love Alcantara, as you can see in all my 911 cars. I do everyone’s head in at Porsche, to be honest. Maybe it’s great memories of motorsport, but Alcantara to me says “fast”. It does get a bit warm in hotter environments, but that’s why I’ve also opted for the cooling seats.
In terms of the driving experience, I’ve also gone for Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport. Whenever Porsche gives you the option of putting the cherry on the cake in terms of dynamics, it’s something I’ll always do. But beyond that there’s not much else I need. It already looks so clean, it’s all-wheel drive of course and it’s the Turbo S. For my money, this is the ideal Taycan.
