If you own a 2006-2008 Porsche Cayman, you might want to take a look at Techart’s Aerokit I program for your car. You may be surprised to find out that the tuner can improve both the car’s performance and its aerodynamics.

Starting with the exterior, the tuner is offering a front add-on spoiler, side skirts, a rear spoiler that reduces lift on the rear axle, and TECHART Formula wheels with sizes up to 20".

At the heart of this mid-engine sports car lies the displacement of 3.8 liters. The increase is facilitated by a bore enlarged to 99 millimeters with the corresponding larger special pistons and by the installation of a special crankshaft. The engine conversion also includes sports camshafts. A modified intake manifold with special air filter system and an aluminum header provide ample combustion air. The result is an output of 370 hp, a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds, and a top speed of 186 mph.

For the interior, the tuner is offering aluminum sport pedals and a Techart sport steering wheel coated in three types of leather. You can also receive illuminated door sill panels bearing your own signature.

For those of you driving a 2005-2008 997 Carrera, TechArt has prepared a special AeroKit II program. It includes a roof spoiler as well as three different types of rear wings: Rear Wing I, Ring Wing II and a distinctive Rear Wing III with its static wing profile. These wings enable precise aerodynamic adjustments at the rear axle.

Also, thanks to small ECU modifications and new sport exhaust systems the engine can deliver an extra 15hp. The new sport exhausts systems are the "Sport" and the "Racing" with dual-tube tailpipes in chrome and black chrome.

The interior gets select materials, tastefully coordinated colors, and a sense of design with unmatched precision and craftsmanship that is immediately noticed. It is TechArt’s aim to turn the driver’s individual vision of their 911 interior into a reality. Whether you prefer to set selective highlights or entrust TechArt to create a unique interior design to your specifications, TechArt does not set limits.

Porsche did, in fact, unveil the new 997 line-up, but there are people out there who still drive the old Carrera Convertible models and TechArt had them in mind when designing their new program.

The TechArt program for the 997 Cabriolet includes: components made of PU-RIM, a front lip spoiler, head lamp trim, side skirts, rear diffuser, a range of three rear wings, interior enhancements, sport exhaust, and adjustable sport suspension.

The output for the engine has been raised to 400 hp and was made possible thanks to new metal air filters, a sport clutch, and a short shift kit. The 997 Cabrio also gets a sport brake system, spring kit, sport chassis "vario", and the new 20" TechArt’s Formula wheels.

The interior gets airbag sport steering wheels and leather work.

You might say that a car like Porsche 911 Turbo has enough power from factory and its look needs no improvement. But as when we are talking about cars the word "enough" is not in our dictionary we present you the TechArt Aerodynamic Kit I for Turbo Cabriolet.

Starting with the exterior the tuner added: a new front spoiler that smoothly integrates into the shape of the bumper and embodies pure sportiness at the first glance.; side skirts and a new rear diffuser with its additional side air outlets as well as anewly-shaped automatic raising wing element of the rear spoiler make a unique body.

As for the engine, thanks to a TECHART short-throw shifter and a valved exhaust system, the output has been raised to 660 hp at 6,800 rpm, compared to 480 hp of the basic vehicle Porsche 911 Turbo. At the same time, the peak torque increases from 620 Nm to 860 Nm at 4,500 rpm. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 214 mph.

Press release after the jump.

A high-speed police chase on the Slovenian highway near the city of Maribor ended up with an exotic car crashing into a truck. The sad part is, the driver of the TechArt Magnum wasn’t even its owner.

As it turns out, the police chase stemmed from reports that the TechArt Magnum was stolen a couple of weeks ago in Switzerland and after being identified driving along in Slovenia, local authorities went out and took the criminal for a nice – and fast – thrill ride along the Slovenian highways.

It’s bad enough to crash an expensive exotic car through the fault of the owner. But we do feel terrible for the poor chap that owns this TechArt Magnum. Not only was his car stolen from him, but he ended up with quite a hefty insurance bill to pay.

As far as the Serbian who stole the car, he was – thankfully - apprehended with a little assistance from an unsuspecting truck that just so happened to be in the criminal’s way.
