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.

TechArt has revealed their tuning kit for the new-generation Porsche Cayenne Diesel, increasing horsepower output from 240-hp to 280-hp. The power increase comes courtesy from their Techtronic power kit line, (part number TA 058/D1) which is essentially an intelligent engine management system that puts power boost at the push of a button. In addition to the Techtronic power kit, TechArt offers a sport exhuast system for the Cayenne Diesel.

Torque is increased from 405 lb-ft to to 457 lb-ft helping give the Cayenne Diesel’s 0-62 mph time to 7.2 seconds and a new top speed of 145-mph. As with all Techtronic units, this TechArt tuning program is backed by a warranty on engine and transmission.

No pricing was announced for the tuning package.
