Ever since the Porsche Cayenne was launched recently we have seen tuners such as Kahn Design , Lumma Design , and Cargraphic put their hands on it to have it customized to their liking. Now, after a few customization programs for the new Panamera , TechArt has decided they would also like a piece of the Cayenne pie so they have turned their attention to the SUV. The tuning package includes individualization options for the exterior, the engine area, and the interior of the SUV.
The exterior package includes trims painted in custom colors or in carbon fiber, a carbon hood, sport tailpipes in polished stainless steel, and Formula III forged light alloy wheels in dimensions of 20- to 23-inch.
The interior gets high quality full leather and a 3-spoke sport steering wheels with paddle shifters.
Take a look at the back of this baby and it may seem a little familiar. When we looked at it, we saw a striking resemblance to the first image unveiled yesterday of Project Kahn’s interpretation of the Porsche Cayenne. We can’t say much about it now, but we will definitely be comparing these two packages when Kahn reveals specs on their tuning project.
It wasn’t long ago that the creative minds over at TechArt unveiled the Aerodynamic Kit I for the Porsche Turbo and, already, they have brought out another from under their sleeve. TechArt has just released the official details on their new Aerodynamic Kit II for the Porsche 911 Turbo that is said to bring out the "sporty and masculine features of the car".
The Aerodynamic Kit II includes the engine package TA 097/T1 or TA 097/T2 that add an extra 70 HP and 120 HP, respectively, to the series model from the 480 HP the Porsche 911 Turbo brings to the table straight from the factory. It includes front and rear aprons, front and rear spoiler, and aerodynamic side skirts. Illuminating the Porsche 911 Turbo are the daytime running lamps, position light, parking light ,and direction indicators in one LED system unit and a common housing. All components are made out of high-grade materials such as lightweight carbon fiber and hard-wearing polyurethane-RIM.
This Aerodynamic Kit brings a little more exterior shaping than the first package provided by TechArt back in March. The better choice would depend solely on the driver’s preference over looks or speed even though there isn’t much of a dramatic change in appearance from one kit to another. We would opt for speed, of course.
German tuner, TechArt , does not leave a stone unturned when tuning up the exquisite Porsche models it comes across on a daily basis. We have seen many refined, tuned-up Porsches grace the web pages of TopSpeed after the refining process has taken place at the TechArt headquarters and we are extremely pleased with their current project: thePorsche 911 Turbo . Yes, we know that TechArt has had its way with many a Porsche 911s before, but this particular engine package brings the Porsche top a whole new level of a-maz-ing.
TechArt has two packages for the Porsche 911 Turbo: the TA 097/T1 and the TA 097/T2. We are going to start off with the TA 097/T1 which adds an impressive 70hp to the already aggressive 3.8-litre six-cylinder biturbo horizontally-opposed power unit producing 500hp at 6000rpm and 480 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,950 - 5,000 rpm. With this new package, the Porsche 911 Turbo can make the 0-60 sprint in 3.2 seconds (a difference of 0.2 seconds from the original model) with a top speed of 324 km/hr (roughly 201 mph). These results are achieved by TechArt’s use of their Sport Air Filter as well as optimized engine control.
Hit the jump for the second (better) package along with the full story.
The Porsche Panamera already has speed in place with a choice of a V6 and a V8 engine producing between 300 and 500bhp depending on the trim level. That being said, TechArt has decided that the new Porsche Panamera should have a few upgrades in regards to its comfort and entertainment. Their passion for the Panamera resulted in the new Entertainment & Comfort package.
The new package includes: two 7-inch monitors seamlessly integrated into the design of the front seats, a high-quality TechArt leather monitor console in the color of the vehicle’s interior, and located at the front seat backrests, a 6 DVD Changer, a pivoting 10.2-inch monitor and the finest leather or Alcantara.
To add to the comfort level of the Porsche, TechArt has also installed two fold-away tables located on the back of the driver and front passenger seats. Now, the car’s passengers will be entertained while the driver takes advantage of all the Panamera’s mechanical luxuries.
Forget the formal black and white attire sported by other kits. This edition features a matte black exterior paint, a black daytime running light system, black exterior components across the board, and deep black 22" Formula II light alloy wheels.
The interior follows the same design: black leather combined with alcantara contrasting with decorative stitching and leather piping in flamenco red. All of the interior components, like the trims, door entry guards, cup holder, and air vents present themselves in a premium matte black painted design as well.
TechArt is also offering an Aerokit I tuning package for the 2007-2007 Cayenne and Cayenne S models. To improve the exclusive look Cayenne even in details our exterior designers have created customized applications in carbon fiber, aluminum and chrome optics. Sporty supplements with high-tech feeling, because we are very big in small things.
The styling package includes: side mirror trims, B-& C-pillar trims, window surround trims (8-pieces), tailgate trim, door sill trims and door handles. The aerodynamic package adds front spoiler with integrated headlights, headlight trim, side skirts, rear apron, tail light trim, and rear door contour.

A new stainless performance exhaust and sport springs or control unit for the optional air suspension enhance the performance and handling of this super-SUV. The engine’s output can be raised by up to 100 hp.
The TechArt Magnum program based on the 2004-2007 Porsche Cayenne redefines performance and styling in an extraordinary way. The most exclusive personalization scale is the TECHART Magnum program. The radical change of the new designed body type continues the typical character of the Cayenne models consistently and sets anew standards in exterior design and manufacturing quality.
The exterior "Gun Smoke" package, underline the optical appearance perfectly. It includes: a broad front grill follows, a new front bumper, which is fashioned after TechArt’s 996 Turbo Type II bumper and the front hood with integrated air scoops and dramatic contours.
Technical modifications include high performance brake system, chassis components, engine upgrades and a new sport exhaust. The result is a power upgrade from 360hp to 600hp.
