Techart unveils carbon fiber components for GrandGT Porsche Panamera

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 28, 2011

Techart has recently released a new range of individualization components for the GrandGT Porsche Panamera program. The tuning specialists have previously offered several interpretations of Porsche’s Panamera model but the difference this time is that real carbon fiber will be used instead of carbon fiber reinforced plastic.

According to a company statement, carbonfiber components have amazing product properties, including an “impressive dimensional stability, a great strength and a low intrinsic weight.”

Techart also said that the selected exterior components, which are made of carbonfiber, offer “unique highlights.” This program features an exterior that boasts of the front apron with the front grille insert and splitter in carbonfiber, portraying the dynamic and sporty design approach of the Techart GrandGT.

In addition, carbonfiber is also used generously at the rear, on its diffuser and at the gurney flap of the dominant rear spoiler. Carbonfiber was also used on the refined air ducts at the flanks of the car in the exterior of the four-seater.

When it comes to the interior of the Techart GrandGT, there are carbonfiber trims at the dashboard and the door panels as well as the center console panels are also made of carbonfiber. Even the illuminated door entry guards have a carbonfiber appearance.

The Porsche Panamera has five technological innovations to its name. These were first presented in a production model in the luxury car performance division.

Porsche's Gran Turismo is specifically known for introducing so many firsts: the dual-clutch manual transmission in this market’s division, the start-stop system along with automatic transmission, adaptive air suspension with extra volume in every spring whenever required, active aerodynamics presented by a rear spoiler rising automatically and adjusting the angle of air flow; and finally , the Sport Chrono Package that functions with the press of a button to give a sportier and more dynamic set-up to the engine, transmission and suspension alongside other mechanisms.

In cooperation with PDK, Launch Control guarantees the fastest acceleration from a stop. The variety of models in the Porsche Panamera selection sets a whole new standard in luxury performance when it comes to efficiency. Every model includes Direct Fuel Injection, lightweight bodies and low-friction drive systems.

Porsche Panamera Turbo, which is the top of the line edition, weighs below 2,000 kilos (4,410 lbs) even with its vast assortment of standard features incorporated from the very beginning. To further reduce the level of fuel consumption as well as CO2 emissions, each and every version of Panamera with Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe includes the latest Auto Start-Stop function.

This automatically switches off the engine every time the car comes to a stop like for instance, when the traffic light is red or if caught in a traffic jam, wherein the driver steps on the brake pedal. As soon as he/she releases the brake, the car will automatically start. As a result, there is still a considerable decrease in fuel consumption even during traffic.
