Techart offers new power kit for 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo

Article by Christian Andrei, on February 23, 2011

A new power kit for the 2011 Porsche Cayenne Turbo has been created by Techart. Its development is offered as part of the Magnum program, which will debut at the 2011 Geneva Auto Show. This project dubbed TA 058/T1, which consists of an ECU remap, raises the power from the factory stock value of 500 hp to 560 hp, with the torque raised from 700 to 780 Nm.

The driver activates the new output by pushing the vehicle’s standard “Sport” button.

These changes enable the German SUV to accelerate to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds and to go from 0 to 124 mph (200 km/h) in 15.8 seconds, while its top speed is at 178 mph (287 km/h). A two-year limited warranty is offered by Techart for the power pack. The engine and the gearbox are also covered.

When the improved swept angle configuration of the front end is combined with the front wheel arches that have striking contour lines, the second-generation Cayenne’s muscular build is emphasized. While the headlights remain to be low-slung, it has been placed far on the outside and with the clear glass covering, allowing this model to get that distinct character and face. The new design implemented also helps improve the aerodynamics significantly.

The drag coefficient of the Cayenne with the V6 unit for example is lowered from Cd = 0.38 to Cd = 0.35. Meanwhile for the eight-cylinder version, the drag coefficient has also been reduced to Cd = 0.35 from a high Cd = 0.39. All three versions of the new Cayenne will in fact have this same coefficient. The reason for this improvement in the drag coefficient is due to a number of modifications. Examples of these include the new spoilers placed on the wheels, the exterior mirrors with their new design, and a front spoiler whose lip goes even further down.

There is also the roof spoiler that carries with improved aerodynamics and better air flow conditions. While the Cayenne is fitted with the 17-inch wheels, the Cayenne S and Cayenne Turbo come equipped with the new 18-inch wheels. However all models will be offered with the all-season 19-inch tyres.

Helping the Cayenne get that sporting look are the 21-inch ten-spoke Sports Wheel or the 21-inch multi-spoke Sports Plus Wheel. When fitted with these wheels, it also helps improve the Cayenne’s road performance. Another advantage of using the new wheels is that they weigh the same as the 20-inch wheels that are offered as an option as well.

The Cayenne also has improvements when it comes to passive safety. In terms of airbags, it has two full-size ones for both the driver and the passenger in the front, two thorax sides are also available and then there are the two curtain airbags placed in the roof frame that can cover the side windows on the front and back. Excluding the center seat at the back, the seats come with the belt latch tensioners. The front seats are also fitted with belt force limiters.

With these two features, it is ensured that optimum safety is provided to everyone inside the Cayenne. While previous models have sensors to detect the possibility of collisions either in a lateral direction or longitudinal direction, the sensors in the new Cayenne can now detect if there is a possibility that the vehicle will roll over. This is made possible due to the rolling rate sensor placed in its airbag control unit that also activates the curtain airbags and belt latch tensioners during an emergency.
