TechArt's individualization program for the new Porsche Macan Turbo includes
improved aerodynamics, engine tuning, new exhaust, stiffer suspension and
The aerodynamics package, which is entirely made out of a fiber composite material, consists of a front spoiler, new side skirts, roof spoiler, rear spoiler trim and rear diffuser. Characterized by low weight, precise surface finishing and individual design options, the in-house produced package highlights the styling of the German SUV.
In terms of driving dynamics, TechArt provides moderate power gains for the 6-cylinder engines of the Porsche Macan models. Available from first quarter 2015, the TechArt Power Kit TA B95/T1 generates approx. 50 hp (37 kW) and 52 lb-ft (70 Nm) of additional power for the Porsche Macan Turbo with a press of the Sport- or Sport Plus button. Therefore, the maximum total output of the twin-turbo engine increases to approx. 444 hp (331 kW) at 6,200 rpm and 457 lb-ft (620 Nm) at 2,700 rpm. In Sport Plus mode, the compact SUV accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in 4.2 seconds; and from 0 to 100 mph in 10.6 seconds. The top speed increases to 168 mph (271 km/h). Without using Sport or Sport Plus mode the vehicle operates with its serial engine management system.
The TechArt exhaust system, made of stainless steel, ensures that the strength of the Porsche Macan models can be heard better. Available from first quarter 2015, the Porsche Macan S and Macan Turbo will be the first models of the range which can be equipped with the electronically valve-controlled TechArt exhaust system. Separately controllable by the press of a button at center console, it provides a distinctive and rich sound with a high recognition value for the V6 petrol engines. The exhaust system can also be used even when closed under full load across the entire speed range and in all driving modes.
The TechArt suspension enables a user-friendly ride height adjustment in driving, loading and parking condition for vehicles with standard air suspension. The normal level remains unchanged from the serial settings. When choosing the low level manually or driving in Sport Plus mode, the vehicle lowers by approx. 30 mm in comparison to the normal level and remains activated during all speeds. Hence the TechArt Air Suspension Module Sport generates an approx. 20 mm lower total vehicle level compared to the standard model, which drags down the body visually closer towards the asphalt, generating a more sportive look.
Three TechArt wheel designs, available in 21- and 22-inch as well as in various surface finishing combinations, can be ordered for the all-wheel drive compact SUV. Besides attractive color combinations, all TechArt Wheels can be customized individually to suit the vehicle in question.
Inside, the German tuner can customize seats, dashboard, center console or door panels. The new ergonomically shaped 3-spoke steering wheel with paddle shifters allows precise vehicle handling while the aluminum pedals and the aluminum foot rest provide ideal grip for precise control of throttle and brake. Other optional equipment includes floor mats, loadspace floor mat and illuminated door entry guards.
