2018 Porsche Cayenne Turbo by TechArt
TechArt cut its teeth in the tuning world developing programs for Porsche models. Now it has a new one for the Cayenne Turbo, and it’s even partnered with high-end furniture maker Rolf Benz to develop the program. Exterior, interior, and drivetrain upgrades are all part of the menu, though there’s a good chance that all anybody’s going to be talking about is Rolf Benz’s involvement in the program.
2018 Porsche Panamera by Techart
TechArt’s work on the Porsche Panamera extends all the way from the saloon’s introduction in 2009. We’ve seen the German tuner introduce different versions of its GrandGT tuning kit in the past eight years. At the 2018 Geneva Motor Show, TechArt is keeping the tradition alive with its latest and punchiest Panamera program to date. The kit is called the GrandGT Supreme, and as its name suggests, the program is a more sophisticated version of the standard GrandGT, one that features a more aggressive body kit, a more opulent interior, and enough power to justify its cutting-edge looks.
2017 Porsche Cayenne Turbo S Magnum Sport "Edition 30 Years" by TechArt
Regardless of what you may think of the Porsche Cayenne Turbo S, there’s no denying the SUV has made a significant impact in the auto industry. But now that the Cayenne Turbo S E-Hybrid is set to replace the Cayenne Turbo S as the flagship model of the SUV line, there’s no better way to give the gas-powered SUV the perfect swan song by putting it in the hands of TechArt, the German tuner of all things Porsche. Serendipitously, TechArt’s latest program for the Cayenne Turbo S comes at a time when the tuner is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Put these two events together and you’re presented with the “Edition 30 Years” special edition version of TechArt’s Magnum Sport program for the Cayenne. Among the many new features is 720 horsepower and 678 pound-feet of torque.
Consider that insane torque number for a second. Not only does TechArt’s program add 88 pound-feet of twist to the Cayenne, but the resulting output also puts it head and shoulders above the 627 pound-feet of torque capabilities of the Porsche Cayenne Diesel, which just set a Guinness world record by successfully pulling a 314-ton Airbus A380. Imagine then what the Edition 30 Years version of TechArt’s Magnum program is capable of when afforded the same opportunity.

2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S GTStreet R by TechArt
The business of tuning Porsche sports cars is a big one. It can also be an expensive one depending on where you go. Still, Porsche owners, particularly those who have the 911, have shown little hesitation in giving their sports cars these programs, partly because of the need to unlock the car’s full potential and partly because, well, they can. One tuner that has proven its worth in this regard is TechArt, the same German aftermarket company that recently gave us this beauty of a tuning kit for the Porsche 718 Cayman. Seems fitting then that with that upgrade comes another one for the 911, and it’s one that most of us are all too familiar with. Ladies and gentlemen, this is the new Porsche 911 Turbo S GTStreet R by TechArt.
The GTStreet program goes back a long way with some of the earliest iterations developed for previous-generation 911 models. This new one, though, is for the incumbent model, the same 911 Turbo S that tuning rival Gemballa used to develop its own new version of the Avalanche program. In a lot of ways, there are some shared similarities between what Gemballa’s Avalanche program is offering to that of TechArt’s GTStreet R kit. There’s the obvious power enhancement, which in the case of the latter, can go up to as much as 720 horsepower. There’s the unmistakable aerodynamic kit, which, as you can see in the photos, is as audacious as it is mesmerizing.
Best of all, there’s the unmistakable attention-to-detail that only a tuner like TechArt can provide. The company, after all, made its bones developing aftermarket kits for Porsche models and this new GTStreet R program is just the latest example of that peerless drive to be the best in its market.

2016 Porsche 911 Turbo S by TechArt
The Porsche 911 Turbo S needs no introduction so let’s skip the pleasantries and jump ahead to something owners will find mighty interesting. There’s a new program out for both the 911 Turbo S and the 911 Carrera 4S. It’s made by TechArt, which is famous for being one of the most Porsche-focused aftermarket companies in the business. Not one to diminish its own reputation, TechArt’s new engine upgrade package for the 911 Turbo S comes with a power increase that takes the output of the sports car’s 3.8-liter turbocharged flat-six engine from the standard 540 horsepower and 533 pound-feet of torque to 640 horses and 649 pound-feet of twist.
As I mentioned, there’s also a separate program for all variants of the 911 Carrera S and 4S. Sure, these engine upgrades don’t reach the levels of the 911 Turbo’s output increase, but TechArt still managed to get 480 ponies and 428 pound-feet of torque out of them. That’s a nice bump up from the 420-horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque output of the standard Carrera. Other than the engine upgrades, the kit also includes plenty of aerodynamic parts for both 911 variants and a tailor-made interior that offers detailed elements of style and craftsmanship.
The tuner is also offering suspension improvements and a new set of wheels, finishing off what can only be described as one of the most comprehensive aftermarket programs for two of the current-generation Porsche 911’s most high strung models.

Ever since it was launched in 2004, TechArt’s Magnum kit for the Porsche Cayenne has established itself as one of the premier Cayenne tuning programs in the world. Three generations of the SUV have been developed and all three have received their respective Magnum kits from the German tuner. In that time, TechArt claims that more than 1,200 Magnum kits have been built for customers all over the world. That’s no small feat for an SUV that’s attracted its own share of tuning kits from other aftermarket shops all over the world. Now that the fourth generation of the Cayenne has been launched, TechArt’s jumping on board with a new Magnum kit that’s scheduled to make its debut at the 2015 Essen Motor Show.
In typical TechArt fashion, the new Magnum kit is defined by a dramatic aerodynamic kit that totally flips the script on what the Cayenne looks like. A heavily dressed up interior and significant engine upgrades help balance the entire Magnum program. TechArt has used this formula for the past 11 years and it has been successful in doing so, as shown by the over 1,000 customers who now have the Magnum kits on their Cayennes.
The fourth-generation Magnum kit also showcases the evolution of the program so what you see now represents the time and dedication TechArt has put into building one of the most comprehensive kits for the Cayenne that’s in the market today. There may be other programs for the Cayenne in the market, but if you want to call a spade a spade, few are as better as TechArt’s Magnum program. That’s been the case for the better part of 10 years and knowing TechArt, that’s going to be the case for the foreseeable future.

Within months since introducing its first update for the all-new Porsche Macan crossover, German tuning house TechArt rolled out the full details for the 991-generation 911 Turbo package. Previewed in January 2014, the 911 Turbo TechArt returns at full throttle with a significant output increase to go with the revised body kit and the upgraded interior.
As we’ve come to expect from TechArt, the modifications not only give the 911 a unique look, but also enhance its horsepower and torque figures, which results in faster acceleration times and higher top speeds. Both the coupe and the convertible can be updated using the new package, which is aimed at customers looking to park a bespoke 911 Turbo in their driveway.
All told, TechArt’s 911 Turbo delivers more horsepower than a stock Turbo S, which makes us wonder what kind of monster the Germans will unleash with its upcoming tuning program for the range-topping 911. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s have a look at the non-S Turbo they’ve just introduced.

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.

German tuner TechArt is already on its second revision for the latest-generation 911 Turbo and with every new tuning kit released, the car is looking better and better. While the first details on this kit from TechArt will be released today, the final performance specs will be unveiled at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.
Despite the lack of performance details, TechArt did announce that the kit will include a new sport exhaust system with valve control and a muffler kit sport and a new power kit that will give the 911 Turbo some more ponies.
For the exterior, the tuner prepared a stylish aerodynamic kit made from lightweight composite of carbon-fiber and polyurethane RIM. TechArt draped the body in a sleek white with blue and gray racing stripes that run the entire length of the car. A new set of wheels in a five-twin-spoke design completes the picture.

Here we are: Black Friday. After a day of giving thanks and stuffing our faces, we all rush out to the closest big box store it stand in line for hours, hoping to get that $100, 32-inch LED TV. Well, TechArt has something for you, if you happen to be shopping for a car nut.
This is the tuner’s 2014 wall calendar with its best body kits developed over the past year. Sure, it’s not a crazy-expensive or luxurious gift, but it is a great filler and would likely be the most-used gift over the course of the next 12 months.
The calendar is printed on high-quality 250 g/m2 art print paper and measures 50-by-70 cm (19.6 x 27.5 inches). Each picture is protected by a glossy protective varnish, that will prevent it from discoloration and fading.
The calendar is limited to only 1,500 units, so if you are interested you better hurry up. You can pick one up for €29.80 — about $40 — and shipping is not included. Deliveries will begin in early December.

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.
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.
