2011 Frankfurt Motor Show: Techart Aerodynamic Kit I for 2011 Porsche Cayenne

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 14, 2011

Techart revealed its upgrade package based on the German SUV, the 2011 Porsche Cayenne, at the Frankfurt Auto Show. This program has been dubbed Aerodynamic Kit I and it comprises sporty features such as a three-piece front spoiler with integrated air ducts that aid in cooling the brake system, custom side skirts, a roof spoiler and a revised rear apron that incorporate the diffuser and two reflectors located on the sides of the tailgate.

Two trim pieces are available for the Techart Aerodynamic Kit I for the 2011 Porsche Cayenne.

As a result, the vehicle’s appearance becomes more dynamic, as seen on its taillights, stainless steel, dual tail pipes with embossed lettering and Techart’s custom alloys wheels (Formula II and Formula III) that range from 20 to 23 inch in size.

The Techart lighting packages with LED technology or halogen headlights are offered as an option for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. Accommodated in one common housing are the daytime running lights, side lighting, parking lighting and turn signal lights.

In addition, Techart offers Formula and Formula II light alloy wheels that range from 20- to 23-inch or 22- and 23-inch. Consumers may also get the Formula III forged light alloy wheels in 21- and 22-inch sizes. Performance kits for the Cayenne Diesel and Cayenne Turbo will also be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show.

As Porsche’s first production car to be equipped with the hybrid drive, the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid is leading the new generation of vehicles when it comes to modern fuel efficiency. When compared to previous models, fuel consumption has in fact been lowered by as much as 23%. The reason for this is that the new model was made under the company’s Intelligent Performance standard.

That is, to have more power despite using less fuel and having enhanced efficiency in addition to reduced CO2 emissions. These improvements were due to materials that have been optimized in terms of weight and then combined with some changes on the concept of the overall vehicle like having the extra-light all-wheel drive. Take the Cayenne Turbo for example, its weight has been reduced by 185 kilograms or 410 pounds.

The lower weight was possible even with the enhancements of the product substance and the inclusion of all-round safety, all in high standards. The advantage is not only noticed in the CO2 emissions and fuel emission but also in the agility, performance, and road handling.

Under the New European Driving Cycle then, three of the five models in the line-up continue to have fuel consumption at 10 liters for every 100 kilometers. The remaining two models meanwhile have CO2 emissions that are under 200 g/km. Specifically the Cayenne S Hybrid is at 193 g/km while the Cayenne Diesel is 195 g/km.

The lower fuel consumption on the Cayenne models’ whole range is due to a number of factors that include automatic eight-speed Tiptronic S transmission with the Auto Start/Stop. There are also a number of enhancements on the gear with the engine and the cooling circuit of the transmission having thermal management.

There is also the variable overrun cut-off and on-board network. Finally there is the use of intelligent lightweight construction and the consistent reduction of the weight. Because of all these, the new Cayenne delivers better driving pleasure be it on-road or off-road. Comfort is enhanced as well with elegance at its highest and driving qualities made better. With the elegant yet athletic design, the new Cayenne for 2010 is nearer to the Porsche line-up.

This is because it is able to bring out its qualities as an athletic performer no matter what angle it is viewed from. Both shape and design are also what one can expect from a Porsche. With the interior offering more space, lighter overall weight, and being more efficient, and more dynamic, coupled with an elegant design and equipped with what may be the future of technology, the Cayenne is more Porsche than before.
