TechArt Puts Its Mark on the New Porsche Cayenne
Customers can choose for the Cayenne’s exterior trims painted in custom color or in carbon fiber, sport exhausts in polished stainless steel and a large number of alloy wheel designs. These are available in various colors and in sizes between 20 and 23 inches.
Even if TechArt is not touching the engines yet, it offers an engine styling package that includes a carbon cover. Interior changes include a full leather interior in new color options, aluminium pedals, a three-spoke TechArt steering wheel with paddle shifters, a rear-seat entertainment system and more. TechArt will release more upgrades for the new Cayenne in the next months, including a full aerodynamic body kit and various performance kits.
Launched at this year’s Geneva motor show, the all-new Porsche Cayenne shares its platform with the equally new Volkswagen Touareg SUV. The car is using the same engines as the previous generation, plus a hybrid version.
There’s a diesel 3.0-liter V6 developing 240 horsepower, a gasoline 3.6-liter V6 developing 300 horsepower, a 4.8-liter V8 of 400 horsepower and a turbo version of the same engine that unleashes 500 horsepower. The hybrid version uses a 335 hp 3.0-liter petrol V6 engine and a 45 hp electric motor. All versions use an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The new Cayenne is 180 kilograms lighter than the outgoing model, due to the use of light materials.
