ASMA Design Ruins Another One: Porsche Panamera The Latest Victim

TechArt Releases Noselift System for Porsche Boxster, 911 and Cayman

Obviously when it comes to modifying cars, there’s a different style and process to building and customizing each project. But at the top of almost everyone’s wish list is an aftermarket suspension, not only lowering the vehicle to give it a more aggressive stance, but to also improve its handling. There are major cons to lowering a vehicle though: a harsher ride and much less clearance between your car’s front bumper and hazards on the road. Those hazards mostly include those pesky curbs and speed bumps, causing us to take each at an angle and as slowly as possible.

TechArt Tunes Porsche 911 Turbo S to 620-hp

Available starting next month is famed Porsche tuner TechArt’s package for the 911 Turbo S. And as with all TechArt tuning packages, we’re thoroughly impressed inside and out with its numbers. Horsepower is increased by 90-hp to 620-hp and torque goes up 89 ft-lbs for an impressive 605 ft-lbs of torque.

Acceleration is clearly at a blistering speed with TechArt’s 911 Turbo S hitting 62 mph in merely 2.9 seconds. A top speed of 207 mph is also possible once the modifications are done. No pricing has been released yet, but the tuning package consists of everything you’d expect: TechArt air filter, manifold, exhaust system and a pair of pressure sensors. While the bolt-ons obviously help let the engine breathe, we’re going to guess a bulk of the performance increase comes from the retuned ECU.

Misha Designs GTM Porsche Turbo Aero Kit Delivers Gemballa-Like Style

Misha Designs has mostly specialized in Porsche spoilers in the past but we’re guessing given the fairly decent success they’ve had with their Mercedes-Benz SL project, the company decided to dabble in producing a full kit for the Porsche 997. Well, we’re finding the result a little less than stellar, but part of it might be attributed to the corny Photoshop work they did for their own press photos.

TechArt Power Kit For Porsche Panamera Turbo Delivers Added Boost at the Push of a Button

Ah the luxury of having a Panamera Turbo. How about having the ability to increase horsepower output by close to 80 at the push of a button? TechArt, famed Porsche tuner, has done just that for the new luxury sedan with their Power Kit.

The Power Kit is labeled as TA 070/T1 and empowers the 4.8-liter Twin Turbo V8 to push out 572-hp with 612 ft-lbs of torque, an increase of 79-hp and 96 ft-lbs from the factory spec. We guess we shouldn’t be surprised one bit that TechArt would be developing a product to increase horsepower from the Panamera Turbo, but the ability and ease of use truly redefines luxury performance. Want the extra power? Just simply push the sport button on the center console. Want to save gas and just cruise? Turn it off.

No pricing is available yet, but TechArt promises that it’ll be available in August.

Official press release available after the break.
