TechArt Porsche Boxster (2005)
3.8-liter displacement, 385 hp / 283 kW at 6,600 rpm, a peak torque of 407 Nm at 4,600 rpm and a top speed of 285 km/h: Those are the performance cornerstones of the new TechArt GTsport, that TechArt Automobildesign ( www.techart.de ) builds in small-series production based on the Porsche Cayman S. MSRP starts at 100,000 euros.
At the heart of this mid-engine sports car lies the increase in displacement from standard 3,387 cmł to 3,824 cmł. The increase is facilitated by a bore enlarged to 99 millimeters with the corresponding larger special pistons, and by the installation of a special crankshaft.
The engine conversion further includes sports camshafts. A modified intake manifold with special air filter system and an aluminum header provide ample combustion air. The perfect interaction of all these components including the fully stainless-steel high-performance exhaust system with high-performance manifold is orchestrated by new mapping for the engine electronics.
With a maximum power output of 385 hp / 283 kW and a peak torque of 407 Nm the TechArt displacement engine satisfies both highly sporty minded drivers as well as those GTsport pilots who want lots of pulling power from low engine speed.
Powered by this engine, the mid-engine sports car offers excellent performance: The sprint form 0 - 100 km/h takes just 4.9 seconds, and with a top speed of 285 km/h the TechArt two-seater easily bests its production counterpart in this discipline, too.

Powerful engine tuning and exclusive accessories that leave nothing to be desired: TechArt Automobildesign ( www.techart.de ) now also offers an extensive customization program for the new 997-series models Porsche 911 Carrera 4 and 4S.
TechArt also provides engine tuning for both water-cooled six-cylinder engines of the Carrera 4 and Carrera 4S, coupe or cabriolet. The TechArt power kits TA 097/1 for the 3.6-liter version and TA 097/S1 for the Carrera S with 3.8-liter displacement each consist of a sport air filter and newly programmed engine electronics.
After the installation, which can be done directly at TechArt Automobildesign or by any authorized Porsche dealer, maximum power output for each model increases by 15 hp / 11 kW.
Performance improves accordingly: Depending on vehicle weight and the type of tires acceleration time from 0 - 100 km/h improves by slightly under half a second. Top speed increases by some 5 km/h. Even more important for everyday use is the even more spontaneous throttle response and the further improved liveliness of the tuned engines.
The perfect complement to the power kits is TechArt exhaust tuning, of which various versions are available. The product lineup includes oval-shaped dual tailpipes for the production exhaust system, a throttle-controlled sport exhaust system and a complete high-performance exhaust system with high-performance manifolds, sport catalysts and rear muffler.
Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TechArt aerodynamic-enhancement kit: The production front apron receives more visual emphasis from the TechArt front spoiler. But that's not all: The spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift, thus further improving directional stability at high speeds.

TechArt Porsche 911 Turbo 997
The new Porsche 911 Turbo of the 997 model range has arrived at the dealers' showrooms and TechArt Automobildesign ( www.techart.de ) presents the sporty TechArt tuning program for the new top-of-the-line model from Zuffenhausen.
Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TechArt aerodynamic-enhancement kit which was developed in the wind tunnel. The production front apron receives more visual emphasis from the TechArt front spoiler. But that's not all: The spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift, thus further improving directional stability at high speeds.
The new TechArt rear spoiler optimizes the effect of the retractable production rear spoiler. The understated TechArt roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline.
The TechArt side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The side mirrors can be attractively upgraded using the TechArt mirror moldings.
TechArt also developed a rear diffuser for the Turbo, which extends the rear apron downward and provides a dramatic backdrop for the two oval-shaped twin tailpipes of the TechArt sport exhaust system.
TechArt also offers an extensive wheel and suspension program: Owners of the new Porsche 911 Turbo can refine their car with striking, light-weight TechArt Formula five-spoke wheels with 19- or 20-inch diameters.
The most exclusive version for the new coupe features one-piece TechArt Formula light-alloy wheels in size 8.5Jx20 in front and in size 12Jx20 on the rear axle. TechArt recommends ContiSportContact 3 tires in sizes 245/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20 for mounting on these wheels.
