Porsche already has a hit on its hands with the new Macan . Intended to be a smaller, sportier brother to the Cayenne , the Macan shares its wheelbase and basic suspension design with its corporate sibling, the excellent Audi Q5 , but very little else. With TechArt offering up a host of aftermarket upgrades for the Macan, it is truly separated from its platform mate.

Performance is stout, with a choice of two twin-turbocharged, V-6 engines coupled with the acclaimed, seven-speed, dual-clutch PDK transmission. Power is routed to the ground via Porsche’s rear-biased, all-wheel-drive system.

The base Macan S makes 340 horsepower from its 3.0-liter V-6, while the Macan Turbo uses a larger, 3.6-liter version that increases output to an even 400 horsepower.

Both models have been very well-received by critics. The Macan’s performance is impressive and has been commended for typical excellent Porsche driving dynamics, and many professionals feel the Macan offers a superior driving experience; more so than even the company’s own Cayenne.

However, that’s not stopping the aftermarket tuner TechArt from upping the game for enthusiasts.

TechArt continues to update the new 911 lineup with a new tuning kit based on the Turbo models . It will be unveiled at the Essen Motor Show, and as usual, it includes exterior, interior and under-hood updates. Unfortunately, TechArt is saving the latter updates for a later date.

The body kit offered for the new 911 Turbo is made from a lightweight fiber composite of carbon and polyurethane RIM, and was specially designed to improve the aerodynamic features of the model. It includes a new front spoiler that extends for more effective airflow at the push of a button of speeds under 75 mph, or automatically at greater speeds. It retracts automatically at speeds under 50 mph.

TechArt is also offering a new rear spoiler that improves driving dynamics and stability throughout all driving conditions. There are new aero wings, a new air vent on the front apron, new air-flow-optimized side skirts, a new roof spoiler and a new diffuser trim.

Out of the shadows of the recently concluded Frankfurt Auto Show , Porsche tuner TechArt has created a new individualization program for Porsche ’s most iconic model, the 911.

Specifically, this program is for the 911 Carrera 4 , and TechArt wasted little time giving it a comprehensive aerodynamic program that not only enhances the sports car ’s appearance, but also improves its performance and handling credentials.

Not a lot of companies can tap into the soul of a Porsche vehicle quite like TechArt, so it’s no surprise that its new program for the legendary German sports car comes with the intricate knowledge of knowing what parts need to be improved on to ensure that the 911 Carrera 4 improves both its aesthetic appeal and overall performance credentials without compromising its status as one of the best sports cars in the world.

That might be a tough task for other tuners. But for TechArt, it’s pretty much a walk in the park.

With the new generation Porsche Panamera launched on the market, German tuner TechArt prepared a new GrandGT package. Official debut will be made next month at the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and customers can order it shortly after.

As with the previous version, the GrandGT package is about changing every aspect of the car, starting with the exterior look and up to the engine under the hood. As usual, the most important changes were made under the hood where the tuner added an intelligent TechArt engine management system Techtronic that will increase the engine’s power up to 580 horsepower in the Turbo version (up from the standard 520 horsepower).

Next to the extra power, TechArt is also offering a completely revised exterior look thanks to the addition of a new aerodynamic kit made in lightweight fibre composite of carbon and polyurethane RIM. Customers can also opt for a wide range of wheels and of course numerous interior updates.

Following up on its initial Porsche 911 4S offering at the Geneva Motor Show earlier this year, aftermarket extraordinaire TechArt is back with a new version of this program.

This time, the German tuner took the task of dressing up the 4S Cabriolet with a similar kit, all built and developed to give the 911 4S Cabriolet the kind of aerodynamic upgrade that customers of the German sports car will undoubtedly appreciate.

It’s times like this when a tuner like TechArt has a program that’s absolutely to-die-for that we hope to have a 911 4S in our garage. We can’t say enough good things about the sports car, especially its combination of looks and performance that makes for a compelling version of the iconic 911 heritage.

It’s safe to say that the 911 4S packs quite a mean punch, a treat it owes to its 3.8-liter flat-six engine that produces 400 horsepower and chalks 0-60 mph in just 4.1 seconds to go with an impressive top speed of 185 mph.

But far more than just being a performance maven, the 911 4S is also 143 pounds lighter than the standard 911. The variant also comes equipped with Porsche’s AWD Porsche Traction Management (PTM) system and has 22 mm (0.87-inch) wider rear wheel arches than the standard 911.

With all these features packed in a package as impressive as the 911 4S, it’s no secret that this Porsche 911 variant has all sorts of fans from all corners of the world. Having a noted tuner like TechArt give it a comprehensive and new aero program only adds to its appeal.

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.

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.
