TechArt

In the midst of the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show wave, TechArt has decided to preview a special tuning project for the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. It wouldn’t make any sense to prime this project for Frankfurt considering the base of this package is the just-revealed, new generation Porsche 911 . The future upgrade package features an Aerodynamic Kit I and a power kit to boost the mass appeal for the new sports car.

TechArt’s Porsche package takes the smoking hot 911 and adds numerous carbon fiber trims and a new set of 20- and 21-inch Formula III forged light alloy wheels with five dynamically shaped twin-spokes, available in Sterling Silver. The interior is just as simplistic and elegant with a high-quality, all-leather interior and decorative stitching, as well as elegant styling optic packages made of carbon fiber and a new 3-spoke sport steering wheel with TechArt paddle shifters.

Nothing has been said about any power upgrades so at the very least we should expect to see the 3.4L direct-injected flat-six engine delivering 350 HP as found in the standard model. That being said, something tells us we should expect a little more from TechArt because they usually deliver something big.

TechArt stand in Frankfurt has included two of the most incredible cars the tuner has offered lately. There was a new Porsche Cayenne package, but the show has been stollen by the GTStreet RS. Based on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS , the new GTStreet RS is the most powerful car ever developed by TechArt, and it doesn’t look too shabby either.

The 2011 Porsche GTStreet RS is still powered by the GT2 RS’ standard 3.6 liter six-cylinder boxer engine, but its output has been skyrocketed to 720 HP and a peak torque of 663 lb-ft. However, before you can even feel how powerful this car is out on the road, it’s exterior look lets you in on the secret ahead of time.

TechArt has equipped the Porsche GT2 RS with a new muscular body kit that includes a number of carbon fiber parts, as well as a new set of 20-inch Formula Race lightweight forged center lock wheels.

TechArt has been one of the foremost tuning companies of Porsche vehicles, having produced a long list of programs for the Stuttgart-based company.

Their next program for the Porsche Cayenne will introduce a new set of aerodynamic kits for the SUV, called the TECHART Aerodynamic Kit I, as well as a performance program courtesy of the company’s new TA 058/T1 performance kit.

Among the parts included in the aero kit are a three-piece front spoiler with integrated air ducts, custom side skirts, a roof spoiler, and a modified rear apron. In addition, interested customers will also receive redesigned taillights, stainless steel dual tail pipes with a special embossed lettering, and last, but not least, a new set of custom alloy wheels that are available from 20" to 23."

TechArt will also be offering their new TA 058/T1 performance kit for a number of variants of the Cayenne , specifically the Diesel and Turbo versions. The former, which carries a 3.0-liter V6 diesel engine with an output of 240 horsepower and 405 lb/ft of torque, will see an increase of 40-horsepower and 51.6 lb/ft of torque, hitting 280 ponies and 457 lb/ft of torque. This allows the SUV to hit 0-62 mph in 7.2 seconds.

Meanwhile, the latter carries a 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine with 500 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque. Thanks to TechArt’s performance program, the output climbs to 560 horsepower and 575 lb/ft of torque with a 0-62 mph time of just 4.4 seconds.

There’s plenty to like about the TECHART Aerodynamic Kit I and the TA 058/T1 performance kit and we certainly can’t wait to see what other surprises the company has in store for us when the Frankfurt Motor Show opens its doors in the coming weeks.

TechArt ’s bread and butter is clearly found on the latest models in Porsche’s lineup. This German tuner has updated a never-ending list of Porsches and the Cayenne seems to be the vehicle of choice. Their latest kit is for the diesel variant and features their old Magnum package with a power increase to boot.

The star of the show is the new TechTronic power kit TA 058/D1 that will add another 40 HP and 52 lb-ft of torque to the car’s standard 240 HP and 405 lb-ft. With a new total of 280 HP and 457 lb-ft of torque, the updated Cayenne Diesel Magnum will sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 7.2 seconds and to 100 mph in 18.9 seconds. Top speed has been increased to 144 mph. Exploiting this new-found power is a new sport exhaust system with twin tailpipes and an embossed TECHART logotype. This ensures that the giant Porsche’s purr gets a bit more growl.

The exterior of the Cayenne Diesel is nothing new as the Magnum package first debuted at the Auto Zurich Car Show in 2010 and in many other variants throughout the years. This package puts in a front apron with two large air intakes and integrated TechArt daytime running lights, an Aero engine hood outfitted in carbon fiber with integrated air outlets, a three-part tail light trim with an integrated spoiler shape, and a new set of wheels. The interior also gets some attention with a roof mounted Entertainment Kit with an adjustable overhead monitor, a hand-made display console in leather, a 3-spoke sport steering wheel, and TechArt paddle shifters.

Back in February TechArt has unveiled a pretty impressive package for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo . Now the tuner has revealed a pretty impressive Individualization option list for the Cayenne. The package starts with an Aero engine hood with integrated air outlets, a roof spoiler in combination with the three-part tail light trim with an integrated spoiler shape.

For the exterior lighting customer can choose between LED lightning packages in black and chrome or halogen lightning packages. The LED system unit integrates the day-driving light, sidelights, parking lights and indicators in a single housing. And of course there is a new sports exhaust system and a new set of light alloy wheels.

For the interior TechArt is offering an Entertainment Kit W2 that includes two 7-inch monitors seamlessly integrated into high-quality TECHART leather monitor consoles in the color of the vehicle’s interior and located at the front seat backrests. The tuner offers offers foldable rear single seats as well as an elegant rear center console for more storage space in the fond of the SUV.

TechArt has tuned up just about every Porsche model it can get its hands on and now they are headed to the Geneva Motor Show with their new TA 058/T1 power kit as part of their Magnum program. This kit will be launched in the new generation Porsche Cayenne Turbo and will bump up the crossover’s power to a total of 560 hp and 780 NM of torque. As a result, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph is now made in 4.4 seconds, from 0 to 124 mph will be in 15.8 seconds, and the top speed halts at 178 mph.

In order to obtain this impressive engine update, TechArt is also offering an intelligent electronic power management and a TECHTRONIC engine management. The exterior comes with the usual Magnum program updates, including a front apron with two large air intakes and integrated TechArt daytime running lights, a TechArt Aero engine hood outfitted in carbon fiber with integrated air outlets, new side skirts, and elegant trims on all four doors. There is also a TechArt three-part tail light trim with an integrated spoiler shape in combination with the roof spoiler and a new exhaust system with sport tailpipes.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo by TechArt does a number on the one provided by Merdad, another tuning firm. That kit only worked on the vehicle’s exterior and left the engine completely untouched. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to know that adding more power to the car gets our vote almost instantaneously, but the fact that TechArt’s Cayenne also gets some nice exterior mods definitely lands them in our number one spot.

For a car that has many Porsche enthusiasts up in arms, the Porsche Panamera isn’t scaring away any tuners from modifying the luxury sports sedan inside and out. We’ve seen kits from Mansory , Vorsteiner , Edo Competition , and many more, but we have a feeling that none of these tuning kits will hold a candle to the amount of carbon fiber that is juts oozing out og TechArt’s new kit for the Panamera.

Dressed in head to toe carbon fiber, TechArt’s Porsche Panamera GrandGT is nothing short of CB heaven. We’re talking a new front apron with a front grill insert and splitter, a rear diffuser, the gurney flap of the dominant rear spoiler, and the air ducts at the flanks of the car all made up of this highly touted material. The use of carbon fiber has lead to an impressive dimensional stability, great strength, and a low intrinsic weight.

The same carbon fiber overhaul was also brought into the interior with the dashboard and the door panels, as well as the center console panels and the illuminated door entry guards all dressed to impress with the same carbon fiber.

Since it seems that carbon fiber was the only way to go for this tuning project, we didn’t really expect any engine modifications at this point. However, if we had our way, we’d bring back the engine mod done on the last TechArt Grand GT . That kit brought out 571 ponies and 830 Nm of torque, which would complete this carbon fiber package rather nicely.

The TechArt GranGT is a new tuning package based, of course, off the Porsche Panamera and includes both engine updates and exterior and interior modifications. World debut will be made at the Auto Zurich Car Show from November 11 to 14, 2010.

For the exterior, TechArt is offering a new powerful front bumper with integrated splitter and large ventilation intakes, multifunctional daytime running lights integrated in the front bumper, an Aero engine hood constructed of high-quality carbon fibers, with integrated air outlets, new side skirts and flared fenders, a new roof spoiler, and a much larger rear spoiler. The package is finished by Formula light alloy wheels, in 20 to 22" dimensions.

For the interior the tuner is offering an entertainment package with two 7-inch screens, a new center console, and rear fold-away tables.

But the most amazing changes were made under the hood. Thanks to a new powerkit TA 070/T1, the power of the 4.8 l twin-turbo engine is increased to an impressive 571 HP and 830 Nm of torque. No words yet on how these new numbers will increase the car’s performance.

Press release after the jump.

TechArt has come out with more than their fair share of tuning kits for the Porsche Cayenne, but it seems that they are not done finding ways to bring the Porsche out of the luxury SUV. Their latest kit is called the Magnum and is one they have used a few times over the years, with each year getting a few different modifications. This year’s TechArt Magnum based off of the 2011 Porsche Cayenne comes with no power upgrades, but a few exterior and interior modifications. It’s official debut will be made at the Auto Zurich Car Show on November 11th-14th, 2010.

The new Magnum package includes a front apron with two large air intakes and integrated TechArt daytime running lights, as well as an additional xenon double headlamp unit and air ducts. The TechArt Aero engine hood gets outfitted in carbon fiber with integrated air outlets while the side of the car get new side skirts and elegant trims on all four doors. The rear gets a TechArt three-part tail light trim with an integrated spoiler shape in combination with the roof spoiler and a new exhaust system with sport tailpipes in polished stainless steel. The package is finished by 20- to 23-inch light alloy wheels.

The interior package gets a roof mounted Entertainment Kit with an adjustable overhead monitor and a hand-made display console in leather, 3-spokes sport steering wheel, and TechArt paddle shifters.

All in all this package isn’t all that bad for the Porsche Cayenne , but we would rather highly talented tuner like TechArt bring out more fire in the otherwise slower Porsche model.

Press release after the jump.

TechArt either loves the Porsche 911 Turbo S or just loves what they can do with one because the tuning package revisions just keep coming. We’ve already seen similar tuning packages from TechArt in February and two more in May which boosts the power and aerodynamics for the speedy 911 Turbo S. Now, their latest package boosts the Porsche’s horsepower by 90hp and its torque by 120Nm from a standard 530hp and 700 Nm of torque.

So, with a total of 620 HP and 820 Nm of torque, the Techart Turbo S sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 2.9 seconds and to 124 mph in 9.3 seconds. The Porsche will not stop until it hits a top speed of 206 mph (up from a standard of 195 mph).

The engine conversion consists of a TECHART sport air filter and a TECHART manifold unit, as well as the TECHART exhaust system “sport” and two TECHART pressure sensors. All of these different components come together to produce a newly reprogrammed engine that is sure to please any Turbo S owner. The new package will be available starting this September.

Press release after the jump.
