Have you ever asked yourself what do Russians have and we don’t? Well, according to the latest photos available on the internet it looks like Russian do know how to travel and when they do it, they must use only in luxury cars.

In some recent photos we could see that Russians don’t have the ordinary yellow cabs we are used to see everywhere. Who has the money and can afford it, can choose to travel with a Maybach 62 or the powerful Techart Magnum , based on the Cayenne Turbo. Unfortunately we couldn’t find out what is the rate for a trip with one of the two cabs but for sure this is not for ordinary people.

Due to the high number of millionares in Russia it wouldn’t be a surprise to see in the future some cabs based on sport cars like Porsche, Ferrari or the luxurious Aston Martin, cars that could take you where you need but faster than ordinary cabs.

TechArt will unveil at the Geneva Motor Show the new TECHART GTstreet convertible, a car based on the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet. Next to it, TechArt will also present the GTstreet Coupe;, which was officially launched in Geneva in spring 2007.

The TechArt GTstreet convertible now develops 630 hp and can reach a maximum speed of 345 km/h.

And today the German tuner decided to ruin the hopes for many of us; they have announced the price for this beauty: starts at 245,000 Euros MSRP. Ouch! That hurts! Almost double than a regular 911 Turbo!

In a very short time, TechArt will unveil a new individualization programs for the 2008 Cayenne. Besides the new TECHART Magnum and the new Aerokit I, TECHART will offer a manifold choice of technical options. The Magnum will be presented to the public at the upcoming Frankfurt IAA among other TECHART world premiers. The delivery of the first TECHART Magnum vehicles will start in August. The Aerokit I will be
launched in September.

As unbelievable this might sound, it seems to be true. 3 engine prototypes have been stolen out of Porsches development center: two conventional and one engine of the future. And they have been found... no one will ever expect that: in the Techart garage (one of the biggest Porsche tuners). As a result, Porsche sued TechArt for theft, but TechArt say they have bills for everything they bought. It seems that TechArt has ordered an engine for their 997 Turbo, but what they received wasn’t (...)
