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 Sport. Separately controllable by the press of a button at centre console, it provides a distinctive and rich sound with a high recognition value for the V6 petrol engines.

TECHART Suspension Options for the Porsche Macan models – World Premiere.

TECHART Automobildesign injects the Porsche Macan models with additional variability and sportiness. The TECHART Air Suspension Module Sport, already available for the Porsche Cayenne models, has been intelligently adjusted to the vehicle levels of the Porsche Macan models. It 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.

Thanks to the TECHART Air Suspension Module Sport the vehicle’s rear moves approx. 20 mm lower than the standard car when selecting the loading level. In total the loadspace sill is approx. 60 mm lower than in normal level, which helps reaching the luggage compartment with more comfort and ease. The terrain level remains untouched by the TECHART Air Suspension Module Sport and operates according to its serial configuration. A unique product feature of the TECHART Air Suspension Module Sport for the Porsche Macan models is the automatic parking lowering. Activated by remote-controlled locking at the vehicle’s ignition key, the ride height is lowered by approx. 60 mm in comparison to the normal level. For more dynamics, also when standing still.

The seventh generation of the Porsche 911 Targa 4 models carries on the heritage of its predecessors. The TECHART Aerodynamic Kit demands technical and functional quality, as well as a stylistic treatment of the original vehicle’s characteristics and shaping. Made from a lightweight fibre composite of carbon and polyurethane RIM, it is distinguished by high levels of load-bearing capacity and dimensional stability with a low tare weight. The two-part TECHART Front Spoiler I with integrated splitter drags down the body visually closer towards the asphalt, generating a more sportive look. Hence it reduces the aerodynamic lift at the front axles. The combination of the TECHART Rear Spoiler II wing profile and the TECHART Diffuser add-on does not only create a vibrant look at the vehicle’s rear, but also additional aerodynamic downforce. TECHART Aero Wings, which are integrated into the front air inlets, create a dynamic shaft outline and form the prominent TECHART family face in collaboration with the TECHART Air Vent at the front apron. These parts can be ordered either painted or in carbon fibre. Distinguished by low tare weight and precise surface finishing, the carbon fibre parts set sincere motor sport styling highlights. In-house produced by body work specialists and selectively available in matt or glossy finish, they allow a precise adaption to the vehicle’s aerodynamic design elements.
