At the 2013 Geneva Motor Show, TECHART unveiled cool aerodynamic kit based on the diesel version of the new Porsche Cayenne S. The model displayed in Geneva featured a deep-black metallic paint combined with a black leather interior and a new set of wheels, sized 23 inches with light-green applications. However, each customer can opt from a wide selection of colors and materials.
The aerodynamic kit includes a three-part front spoiler with integrated air outlets for a better cooling, a new carbon-fiber aero hood with integrated double-sided air outlets, a new front apron and side skirts, a roof spoiler and a rear apron with integrated diffuser and two reflectors. TECHART is also offering a Lighting Package that includes twin headlights with LED or halogen lights.
When it comes to wheel choices, customers will have a wide selection to choose from: Formula 5-spoke light-alloy wheels ranging from 20 to 23 inches or Formula III 5-spoke forged light-alloy wheels sized 21 or 22 inches. The tuner is also offering a new sport exhaust system that will further improve the diesel engine’s sound.
For the interior, the tuner is offers high-quality materials, exotic woods or carbon and lots of individual colors.
Just months after unveiling the base kit, Porsche has added in an engine tune that includes the tuner’s TA 058/SD1 powerkit. When you press the “Sport” button in the center console, this powerkit bumps the Diesel S’s power by 38 horsepower to a full 420 ponies and 73 pound-feet of torque to 700 pound-feet. This helps drop the SUV’s 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) time to 5.2 seconds – 0.5 seconds faster than the stock time – and increase top speed by 4 km /h (2.48 mph) to 256 km/h (159.07 mph).
Also added in is TECHART’s TECHTRONIC system that improves acceleration and driving dynamics without interfering with the standard control software.

UPDATE 5/12/2013: TECHART has released a new engine tune for the Cayenne Diesel S
After the Boxster got a little TechArt love, the German tuner turned its attention to the 2014 Porsche Cayman. TechArt offers a very nice aerodynamic kit that not only makes the car look better, but it also improves the car’s aerodynamic features.
For the exterior, the tuner is offering a new front spoiler with integrated splitter and for the rear, a new spoiler, a new diffuser and central end pipes for the new sport exhaust system. The car sits on a set of 21-inch light alloy wheels in either a classic five-spoke design or a dynamic twin-spoke design. Additionally, TechArt added in a new sport spring kit that lowers the car’s ride by 35 mm (1.37 inches).
The interior has also been updated with decorative stitching, lacquered surfaces, carbon-fiber trims and a three-spoke sport steering wheel with ergonomically mounted paddle shifters.

The 2013 Geneva Motor Show is the next show of the year, and each day we get more details on the models to be displayed at the show. For example, German tuner, TechArt, announced a pretty cool upgrade kit for the new-generation Porsche Carrera 4S.
Although the tuner only announced upgrades for the exterior and the interior, all of these additions transform it into an even cooler sports car.
Upgrades for the exterior include the addition of a new nose-lift system that adds 60 mm (2.36 inches) more ground clearance. This system can be activated when stationary or while driving, and at speeds above 37 mph, the vehicle lowers automatically. The tuner adds a new front spoiler that adds 11 pounds of downforce to the front axle at speeds of 86 mph, a rear spoiler and a new diffuser adds another 36 pounds of downforce to the vehicle’s rear axle. The kit also includes two aero wings and new side skirts. The car sits on a set of alloy wheels sized 20 or 21 inches and are offered in a five-spoke design.
TechArt also offers a new racing exhaust system with valve control and double center tailpipes that offer a more aggressive exhaust sound.
For the interior, the tuner is offering black leather sport seats plus numerous elements in black leather and green decorative stitching. There is also a three-spoke sport steering wheel wrapped in black leather and Alcantara with green stitching, paddle shifters in black matte finish with green symbols, and green TechArt Dials.
Prices for the new kit will be announced during its official debut in Geneva.
Where there is SEMA in America, there is the Essen Motor Show on the other side of the Atlantic. Europe’s biggest aftermarket auto show will play host to some of the best auto tuners in the continent, one of which is Techart.
The noted Porsche tuning specialist will be on hand at Essen to present their latest program, involving the new Porsche Boxster roadster.
The program only covers exterior, interior, and aerodynamic modifications, leaving some questions as to the probability of an engine upgrade coming at a later date. TechArt doesn’t appear to be too keen on revealing anything regarding the possibly of engine mods, but the Porsche tuner did drop the details on their new aero kit for the Boxster.
The most noticeable styling changes include the development of a new carbon fiber kit and exterior color options. The former, in particular, carries new components like a two-piece front spoiler with integrated splitter, an elevated rear wing, diffuser pieces, mirror casings and decorative trims on the side air vents.
The program will also have a new TechArt sport spring kit, effectively lowering the Boxster’s ride height by 30 mm at the front and 20 mm at the rear. From there, the tuning company also added its own sport tailpipes to go with a new sound muffler and a sport exhaust system with valve control. A choice of two wheel options round out the exterior changes, giving customers the opportunity to pick between a new set of 21" Formula 5-spokes light alloy wheels or 21" Formula III 5-spokes forged light alloy wheels.
Moving to the interior, the German tuner is offing a pretty extensive range of new and individual options, including a full leather interior with decorative stitching and a carbon fiber inlay package. A new 3-spoke sport steering wheel will be fitted in, as are new paddle shifters, instrument dials, floor mats, door entry guards, aluminum foot rest, and aluminum sport pedals.
UPDATE 11/11/12: TechArt has revealed new details and photos of their latest program for the Porsche Boxster. Read up on the updates above and check out the new photos in the gallery below!
Known Porsche tuning extraordinaire, TechArt, has prepared a tuning package for the new generation Porsche 911 that accentuates the vehicle’s individualization potential. Their individualization package includes changes for both the exterior and interior, but the future engine modifications are what will tickle everyone’s fancy once they are revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
For now, the exterior package includes a full carbon fiber body kit and a new set of 20- or 21-inch five-spoke TechArt Formula light alloy wheels. The wheels are combined with large spaces between the spokes that revitalize the look of the car, show off the body color matching calipers, and offer effective heat dispersal. These wheels also create a 15% weight loss for the 911, reducing the rotating and unsprung mass and increasing the driving dynamics. There is also a new set of polished stainless steel sport tailpipes with either a dual oval tube or a round tube.
For the interior, the tuner is offering full leather trim with a decorative stitching in any custom color or in a sporty diamond design. There is also sport steering wheel variations with TECHART paddle shifters and plenty of carbon fiber insertions.
Stay tuned as more details will be revealed at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show!
UPDATE 02/27/2012: With Geneva set to open its doors in a week’s time, TechArt has officially taken the wraps off of their new program for the 2012 Porsche 911. The program fits right in the Carrera and Carrera S models and comes with plenty of aerodynamic parts, including a two-part front spoiler with an integrated splitter that fits perfectly into the ergonomics of the 911. The kit also has two aero wings that are integrated into the front air inlet vents, a fixed rear spoiler with a trailing edge, an integrated third brake light, a new rear diffuser, new side skirts, side mirror panels, trim panels for the front headlights, and a new set of either 20" or 21" TechArt Formula five-spoke light alloy wheels.
As far as the Geneva-bound show car is concerned, TechArt opted to show the 911 with a modified interior dressed in black leather and Alcantara with matching matte-painted interior components in racing yellow and black to go with a carbon fiber trim.
UPDATE 03/07/2012: We have added a new set of live images from the car’s official debut in Geneva. Find them in the picture gallery!
Our calendar has been so full of auto shows that it’s becoming increasingly difficult to keep track of all the vehicles that are scheduled to be unveiled in the coming weeks. Not that we’re complaining because this is what we live for.
Over at the Essen Motor Show, some of the best auto tuners in the world will be on hand to present their latest creations, including Porsche tuner extraordinaire, TechArt.
The German tuning firm will be on hand to show three of their latest projects, including the new Porsche 911 Turbo GT Street R.
The full details behind this project have yet to be revealed, although we’ve been informed that it’s going to come with a doozy of upgrades, including Techart’s new TA 097/T3 power kit that improves the output of the 911 Turbo’s 3.8 liter six-cylinder bi-turbo engine from the standard 500 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque figures all the way up to a massive 700 horsepower and 650 lb/ft of torque.
As far as additional details surrounding Techart’s all-new 911 Turbo GT Street R, we’ll share all the new information as soon as it become available.
To be the best, you have to go up against the best. So when TechArt wanted to make over the Porsche 911 Turbo, they set their sights on the 0-60 mph time of the Bugatti Veyron.
Equipped with a TechArt power kit, the 911 Turbo’s 3.8 liter six-cylinder biturbo engine was provided with an extra 200 HP and 169 lb-ft of torque, giving the sportscar a total of 700 HP and 649 lb-ft of torque. Unfortunately, that massive increase still falls short of the 0-60 mph time for the Veyron (2.6 seconds), but not by much. The result of these changes are breathtaking nonetheless with a 0-60 mph time of 2.8 seconds, a 0 to 124 mph time of 9 seconds, and an incredible top speed of 218 mph.
In addition to the TechArt power kit, the tuning firm also armed the Porsche 911 Turbo with a sport air filter, TechArt manifolds, TechArt Turbo chargers VTG, TechArt high performance intercoolers, and a carbon fiber TechArt engine styling package.
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’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.
