Geneva Preview: Techart Concept One based on Porsche Panamera

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 25, 2010

When people decide to buy a car, they’re probably looking for qualities in a model that can fully describe their passion, express their personality and individuality, and exhibit perfection. The good news is that this is exactly what TECHART Automobildesign GmbH stands for.

Further, TECHART has long been known to be a company that is defined by having a wealth of ideas and innovation coupled with instinct and identification. TECHART proves all of these with the introduction of the Concept One with the Porsche Panamera.

Looking under the hood shows the TECHART engine with the carbon fiber cover. The addition of the TECHART flash red coating and logotype makes anyone looking at it already feel the increased power of the Panamera Turbo with maximum power output of 150hp. 

Concept One individualization study was presented by TECHART during the 80th Motor-Show held in Geneva. General Manager for TECHART Thomas Behringer shared that the Concept One is strikingly different from its first program and provides an exclusive outlook for its second individualization especially for the Porsche Panamera.

Behringer adds that with the study being defined with different concepts like individuality, self-consciousness, and strength, it truly shows just how much customers want a sporty and unique car. It was obvious that the Motor Show held in Geneva provided the best platform in presenting this amazing design concept to the world, Behringer concludes.

Exterior Design

In terms of original equipment (OE) quality and PU-RIM high-quality manufacturing from, the carrara white exterior is more than convincing due to the large and massive characteristics. The front apron has air inlets incorporated with them to improve the brake cooling as well as the air that flows to the air intercoolers.

In addition, the front apron highlights the sporty 4-seater design. Furthermore, the unique hood has inwrought air outlets. With powerful fenders and its side skirts, there is a seamless transition between the wide wheel arches.

Trim frames and trim strips completely exhibit the individualization even to the tiniest detail that is characteristic of the TECHART.

The rear apron meanwhile contains integrated air openings with matching diffuser and when combined with the rear spoiler that is height-adjustable, finishes off the unique exterior design.

TECHART’s stainless steel exhaust system has a black double flow tail pipe which can also give a sporty highlight to the already outstanding rear portion of the car.

With the TECHART Formula III light platinum gray alloy 22-inch wheels and Continental Sport Contact 3 tires that fit flawlessly with the color combination of the Porsche Panamera, its appearance is taken to a whole other level.

Interior Design

For the interior, TECHART sets the standards as well. Its unique internal finish proves why TECHART is truly known for its highly-respected manufactured work.

The interior leather is finished in a combination of white and cocoa with leather applications on its trim parts. Its phosphor green stitching reflects the already unique appearance of the exterior.

This unusual individualization is completed with the white carpeting of the interior and trunk, a white face having phosphor green digits, and alcantara roof liner.

Overall, TECHART is the perfect car that can make the customer’s individual ideas a reality with the optimized aerodynamic, exterior design, and technical improvements.

The Concept One Study will, for the first time, have the 3-spoke PDK steering wheel and shift paddles that allow the driver to shift a gear up in one hand and shift downwards with the other hand.

Extra features include the rear center console and 10.2-inch monitor in the ceiling with an integrated DVD player. Then there are the two folding tables located on the back part of the front seat. Thus the passengers in the rear can use it either for business or entertainment.

TECHART Concept One – Design Study Individualization Porsche Panamera

Individuality and personality, passion and perfection are concepts that substantially stand for TECHART. Yet TECHART is also defined by innovation and richness of ideas, by identification and instinct. At the 80th Motor-Show in Geneva, TECHART proves this once again by presenting the world premiere of the Concept One individualization study. Thomas Behringer, general manager of TECHART Automobildesign GmbH, says: "Concept One provides an exclusive outlook on our second individualization level for the Porsche Panamera model range, which is noticeably different from the first subtle program. The study is defined by concepts such as strength, individuality and self-consciousness, and clearly reflects our customers' requirements for uniqueness and sportiness. The Motor-Show in Geneva is precisely the perfect platform for presenting the design concept to the world's public."

Impressive exterior

In OE quality and fully manufactured from high-quality PU-RIM, the carrara white exterior package convinces owing to its massive and white characteristics. The front apron with integrated air inlets self-consciously emphasizes the design of the sporty 4-seater and also provides an improved air flow of the charge air intercoolers as well as improved brake cooling. A highlight is the distinct, extravagantly designed bonnet with inwrought air outlets. Powerful fenders and side skirts ensure a seamless transition among the wide wheel arches. Trim strips and elegant trim frames in the windows show the individualization down to the smallest detail typical of TECHART. The rear apron with integrated air openings and matching diffuser, together with the height-adjustable rear spoiler, rounds off the distinct exterior design. The double flow, black tail pipe of the TECHART stainless steel sports exhaust system also provide sporty accents in the striking rear of the vehicle. 22-inch TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheels in exclusive dull platinum gray with Continental Sport Contact 3 tires fit seamlessly into the Porsche Panamera color combination and underline its self-conscious appearance.

A look under the bonnet also knows how to convince the study. The TECHART engine optic package with carbon fiber engine covering, TECHART logotype and flash red coating already makes the visitor to the trade fair stand feel the power of the Panamera Turbo – increased once again by TECHART with a power thrust of up to 150 hp.

Convincing peak performances

The overall design concept for the exterior with a 21-mm wider front axis and a 42-mm wider rear axis compared to the serial model is convincing owing to the TECHART-typical suitability for everyday use. The multifunctional TECHART daylight driving headlight system contributes essentially to the active safety of the driver by combining daylight headlights, parking lights and turn signal lights as an LED system unit in one common housing that seamlessly fits into the vehicle front design. The intensity of the lights adjusts automatically to the selected headlight circuit. Additionally, the headlight can also be dimmed for improving the effect of the turn signal lights, even while turning off.

TECHART sets standards in the interior

TECHART sets standards in the finishing of automobile interiors. As in the areas of technical revision, aerodynamic optimization and exterior design, the passion for perfection is here once again in the sports car that can make the individual ideas of the TECHART customers a reality. TECHART's saddlery, well-known for valuable manufactured work, convinces in the study's interior through its unique internal finishing. The TECHART full leather finish in the cocoa and white color combination, leather applications on trim parts in cerbero as well as manually processed decorative stitching in phosphor green masterly reflect the unique external appearance in the interior as well. White carpeting in the vehicle's interior and trunk, the roof liner in alcantara and the white face with phosphor green digits complete the unusual individualization.

TECHART's top-class interior options

For the first time in the Concept One Study, TECHART presents the 3-spoke PDK sports steering wheel with shift paddles. The driver can now shift one gear upwards with one hand and one gear downwards with the other one.

In addition, the study also shows some exclusive extras: A 10.2-inch ceiling monitor with integrated DVD player, a rear center console and two high-quality folding tables built into the front seats will also help pass the time in the back seat of the Panamera – whether for entertainment or work – this is left to the customer's personal imagination – as is almost everything at TECHART.
