TechArt, the German-based expert specialized in Porsche cars has unwrapped a stunning customization program for the powerful Porsche Panamera Turbo.Shaded in matt black and fitted with additional aerodynamic and styling elements, the stealth-like TechArt Panamera Black Edition symbolizes characteristics such as individuality, independence and experience.
The exterior of the astonishingly refined luxury four-seater differs from its stock brother by a newly shaped aero kit, multifunctional TechArt daytime running light system and special exhaust unit. In addition to that, TechArt Automobildesign also packs the sporty saloon with sleek 22-inch Formula II light alloy wheels wrapped in high-performance tires.
In the terms of interior ambience, the brand’s designers have restyled the Panamera Turbo’s cabin with black top-end leather and alcantara as well as hand-sewed decorative stitching and leather piping in flamenco red. Moreover, all interior components like trims, door entry guards, cup holder or air vents present themselves in a premium matt black painted design.
TECHART is celebrating the world premiere of its individualization program for the Porsche Panamera models at the IAA 2009. The first phase of the TECHART program includes, among other things, exterior components for improved aerodynamics and a striking appearance that is typical of TECHART, 21 and 22 inch light metal wheels, a multifunctional daylight running light system, as well as extensive options finishing the interior.
“Personality knows no compromise – this is our understanding of high-quality automobile finishing. We implement this one-to-one with the Panamera and in the process combine well-trained aesthetics with discrete elegance,” emphasizes Thomas Behringer, CEO of TECHART Automobil GmbH. The program for the Porsche Panamera Turbo will be shown at the IAA 2009.
The completely newly developed Aerokit I was manufactured from PUR-RIM and it optimizes the driving characteristics specifically at high speeds. The three-part Front Spoiler I has integrated brake air ducting and reduces the lift on the front axle with better cooling of the brakes at the same time. The side skirts steady the airflow under the vehicle and form dynamic contours in the side view. The new Rear Spoiler I and a rear diffusor support driving stability, and together with the dual oval tailpipes made of stainless steel with the TECHART engraving, they emphasize the consistent design at the rear.
Transmission of power to the road is the job of a choice of elegant 21-inch TECHART Formula or sporty 22-inch TECHART Formula II light-metal wheels. For the necessary road holding, TECHART recommends Conti Sport Contact 3 tires or Michelin Pilot Sport PS2 tires.
TECHART has a multifunctional daytime running lights system ready for the Panamera Turbo. The LED system unit combines daytime running lights, blinkers, sidelights, and parking lights in one housing – in a choice of chrome or black – that slips seamlessly into the front design of the Panamera. The system has automatic dimming of the daytime running lights when blinking as well as when the low-beam is switched on.
Interior manufacturing is one of the key competences of the Leonberg Porsche tuning specialist. For the market launch of the program for the Panamera, TECHART is presenting exclusive two-colour leather finishing in teak and black. Decorative stitching with matching thread, a roof liner in the same coloured Alcantara, details such as interior colour-matched handles and foot mats with leather edging in the colour teak give rise to extensive personalization. A TECHART sport steering wheel as well as dials with the interior colour complete the sporty and elegant line. A new TECHART exotic wood variation is being used for the first time in the Panamera. The prized ash veneer with a tactile grain decorates the doors, the dashboard and center console.
The TECHART program for Porsche Panamera S, 4S and Turbo will be available in December 2009. More individualization options as well as technical features will follow at the beginning of 2010.
Technology, quality and design form the cornerstones of over 20 years of history for the renowned car enhancement company TECHART Automobildesign from Leonberg-Höfingen. At the Geneva Auto-Salon 2009, TECHART is presenting the new generation of the Magnum, based on the Cayenne Turbo S, complete with increased performance and uncompromising comfort.
The performance package T2.2 increases the overall engine output to 680 hp (500 kW). The maximum torque increases to 900 Nm at 4.200 rpm. This produces some impressive results: from 0 to 100 in 4.2 seconds. From 0 to 200 in 14.5 seconds. The maximum speed of the vehicle is 308 km/h.
The Magnum exterior
Made entirely from high quality PUR-RIM material of original equipment manufacturer quality. The TECHART Magnum front apron confidently and powerfully emphasises the lines of this sports vehicle. Magnum fenders and sill panels create a fluid transition between the broad wheel arches. The air inlets supply the radiator and front brakes with optimal fresh air. The TECHART Magnum rear apron comes with an integrated diffuser. The two double-flow exhaust pipes of the TECHART stainless steel sports exhaust add a sporty touch to the striking rear of the vehicle. For sporty street use, the TECHART Sport air suspension module lowers the car body by 30 mm. The dynamic appearance is rounded off by the tyres: TECHART Formula and Formula II alloy wheel rims in a classic design from 20 to 23 inches.
The day driving light system
The multi-functional TECHART day driving light system gives the Magnum an unmistakeable external appearance. The LED system consists of a combination of day driving lighting, side lighting, parking lighting and indicator lights. The automatic adaptation of the light strength to the selected driving light setting and the dimming of the day driving light when the vehicle is turning to ensure that the indicator lights stand out are typical features of the system. The LED technology is also characterised by its increased life span and energy saving features.
TECHART meets the highest standards in comfort and individuality with the exclusive de Sede of Switzerland range of interiors.
The new de Sede Classic S line creates a sophisticated Magnum interior and stands for top quality TECHART made-to-order production. The de Sede name has been synonymous with elite seating, the finest quality leather and unique design for over 50 years. The air-conditioned seats are a new feature. The innovative TECHART system ensures that the seats and back rests have always a pleasant temperature. The revised seat design emphasises the sense of luxury sportiness.

With TECHART, distinct individuality is a statement. At the Geneva Auto-Salon 2009, the TECHART based on the Porsche Cayenne Diesel is being presented for the first time.
The TECHART Aerodynamic program for the Porsche Cayenne Diesel
Elegance and sporty dynamics characterise the striking appearance of this compression ignition engine fitted with the TECHART Aerokit I. The agile design of the front spoiler I with integrated headlight unit, the aerodynamic sill panels and aesthetic rear apron with integrated diffuser demonstrate power, speed and perfection. The optimised roof spoiler also offers an impressive performance with its low CW-value.
TECHART Formula alloy wheel rims enable improved wheel arch ventilation and a clear view of the braking system thanks to the long curved spokes. Fine decorative components in lacquer or carbon fibre complete this unique and convincing style. The exceptional material quality and the highest levels of manufacturing precision of all the components underlie the design. The TECHART Aerokit I is made exclusively from high quality polyurethane RIM.
