TechArt Porsche Cayman S

TechArt introduced an elegantly styled and aerodynamically efficient bodystyling program for the new coupe at the 2005 Essen Motor Show.
The TechArt front spoiler, which is mounted to the production bumper, lends the front of the two-seater a more dynamic appearance. But that`s not all: At high speeds it also reduces lift on the front axle.

The TechArt side sills were shaped to calm the airstream between front and rear wheel houses and further to give the Cayman a lower, sleeker appearance.

The sporty TechArt looks are also characterized by custom-tailored tire/wheel combinations. The one-piece TechArt Formula wheels are especially light weight and are available for the new Cayman in 17-, 18-, 19- or 20-inch diameters, all TUV-tested. The largest version features 8.5Jx20 wheels with ContiSportContact 2 tires in size 235/30 ZR20 in front and 11Jx20 wheels with 305/25 ZR20 tires on the rear axle.

The TechArt suspensions are custom-calibrated to the new tires. For a ride-height lowering by about 1 inch TechArt offers sport springs, which also harmonize perfectly with the PASM suspension available from the factory. A sport suspension with firmer ride is in the testing phase of development.

As a world-renowned specialist for exclusive interiors, TechArt also creates individual interiors for the new Cayman in all colors and designs in the company`s upholstery shop.

The lineup includes exclusive fully leather interiors and sporty accessories. TechArt offers ergonomically shaped airbag sport steering wheels with three or four spokes, and aluminum foot pedals, shift knob and foot rest. In addition there are stainless-steel sill plates with TechArt logo.

Anyone longing for a sportier engine sound will soon be able to order a TechArt stainless-steel sport exhaust.

TechArt engine tuning for the new Porsche Cayman is under development.
