SpeedART Brings Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid To 444-HP

SpeedART Brings Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid To 444-HP

While we’ve been paying so much attention to Toyota’s Prius and Honda’s upcoming CR-Z in terms of aftermarket modifications, it’s easy to overlook that there are more than just sport compact hybrids running around on the streets. For those that still yearn for the luxury and comfort of an SUV, Porsche’s Cayenne S Hybrid is a great alternative in saving some gas while still riding in comfort and style.

But the gap is being narrowed with aftermarket companies looking to tune hybrids, unleashing even more horsepower without sacrificing mpgs. SpeedART has dubbed their Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid project speedHYBRID 450 for its 450-hp power output, an increase of 70 over the factory spec. Torque is 420 ft-lbs.

They don’t quite explain how the majority of this power is gained, but do specify that it doesn’t alter the electric mode. We’re guessing mpg isn’t drastically changed despite the power gains. In addition, a sport exhaust system is offered with a sound switch for those that want to dial-it down a bit when needed.

On the outside are staggered 22-inch wheels from LSC-Forged. Lowering the car is an electronic module for the air ride system.

SpeedART also noted that they currently have a pair of body kits under development to also change the styling of the Cayenne S Hybrid.  We’ll keep our eyes out!

PRESS RELEASE

speedART speedHYBRID 450

The latest innovation of the Porsche Tuner speedART from Rutesheim near Stuttgart is called speedHYBRID 450 which is based on the new Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid. Please find attached an overview on the Tuning activities done by speedART:

Performance:

speedART offers for the V6 compressor engine a power enhancement with additional 70 HP, so that the system effort (petrol engine with electric motor) rises up to 450 HP and 570 NM. Regarding the performance, the effort of the speedHYBRID 450 is much better than the one of the Cayenne S. The speed-up decreases from 6.5 Sec. down to 6.0 Sec. and the maximum speed rises up to 252 Km/h. This means a plus of 10 Km/h compared to the original Cayenne S Hybrid and a plus of 22 Km/h compared to the usual V6.

The electric mode stays unaffected by the power enhancement. The speedHYBRID can be driven in the Zero-Emission-Mode as economical and as efficient as the original Cayenne Hybrid. Of course the function of the Sport- and the E-Power-Button stays the same, only that, when needed 70 hp more power for a sporty drive are available.

Sound:

speedART offers for the Hybrid a sport exhaust with sound switch and 2×100 mm tail pipes. This highlights the sportive sound of the V6-compressor and the power enhancement gets also acoustically underlined. The sport exhaust system with sound switch can be ordered for all Cayenne models with petrol engine. A sport exhaust system for the Diesel is also availiable.

Wheels:

In combination with the sporty driving performance 22“wheels, type LSC-FORGED will be mounted. This forged and weight optimized modular 3-piece wheel set is available for the front axle with 9,5x22“ and 275/30 ZR22“ tyres and for the rear axle with 11x22“ and 315/30 ZR22“. The painting of the centre star can be individually chosen by the customer. Due to the special forging technology the weight of the LSC-wheels is on the same level as the weight of a cast 21“ wheel, so that there is no higher consumption caused by the bigger wheels.

Aerodynamic:

The innovative speedHYBRID?-concept is underlined by the sporty blue foliation, which causes together with the white base colour a sporty, modern and environment friendly image.

Two different body kits for the new Cayenne models are in preparation and will be presented contemporary, so that individual customer choices can be satisfied.

Suspension:

For cars with air-ride system an electronic lowering kit module will be offered and for cars with conventional suspension lowering springs can be ordered.

Interieur:

For the compressor motor a special turbo pressure gauge will be mounted on the car dashboard, so that turbo pressure can be observed all the time. Of course this is used in combination with a blue instrumental dial, which replaces also the grey instrumental dial of the centre rev counter from the original tachometer.
