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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read full bio

Another superb convertible car from Porsche. What I really love about this is the interior, they have the most advance technologies.
