TechArt has finally officially unveiled its new styling package for the third generation Porsche Cayenne, with no real surprises. The front chin spoiler has been designed in true TechArt fashion while the LED lighting enhancements and halogen headlights are almost standard issue with any other TechArt styling package. The rear roof spoiler, rear apron and diffuser adds sportiness to the entire SUV while TechArt’s exhaust system is sure to give the Cayenne a whole new rumble.

For wheel options, TechArt is offering their Formula, Formula II or Formula III wheels with sizing varying from 20- to 23-inch depending on the model. Performance upgrades have already been established from TechArt for the new Cayenne, with the Turbo model getting a boost up to 560-hp through a TA 058/T1 kit.

TechArt is also offering interior upgrades to the Cayenne with complete leather interior packages and in-car-entertainment options of integrated screens in the headrests and an elegant center console  with a spacious bar and storage compartment in Alcantara.

It might not be terribly original, but it certainly looks impressive.

HAMANN Cayenne Front1.jpg

With Porsche‘s new Cayenne already garnering plenty of attention from the consumer market, the aftermarket has now begun churning out tuning packages for Germany’s popular sport SUV. Hamann did a fantastic job with their packages for the previous generation Porsche Cayenne, so it’s no surprise that its new rendition is one of our favorites.

Starting with the exterior, Hamann gives the Cayenne plenty more to look at with a new front add-on that gives the Cayenne an even bolder appearance. The vented hood comes in a carbon fiber variety. Onto the side and rear, Hamann side skirts are pretty run-of-the-mill, while the rear add-on consists of three-pieces, leaving ample space for a quad-tipped exhaust system.

With plenty of different wheel options available, Hamann opted to outfit their demo Cayenne with a set of 23-inch ‘Design Unique Forged Anodized’ wheels. Matched with 315/25/23 tires, the one-piece wheels are powercoated a nice black finish and they are also available in brushed aluminum.

Helping the big SUV look even lower and handle much better is a suspension kit that drops the truck 1.4-inches. As for performance, a sport exhaust system is available for the Cayenne V6 and V8 while the Cayenne Diesel has an upgraded ECU option bringing horsepower from 240-hp to 275-hp while torque goes from 405 lb-ft to 457 lb-ft.

Lastly, interior options are also available in the variety of traditional aluminum pedals, a foot rest and floor mats.
