Hofele-Design turns Cayenne II into Cayster GT 670 with 14-piece body kit

Article by Christian A., on May 13, 2012

Hofele-Design's new 14-piece body kit transforms the Cayenne II into the 'Cayster GT 670'. The original bumper in the front is changed with a newly styled one with larger air vents and a new design lineup. Among the components of the kit are poignant wheel arch extensions and a redesigned back apron diffuser.

The four-tube stainless steel tailpipes with 'interlaced double oval' styling is another prominent design element. The combination of these tailpipes and the wider diffuser back apron turns the back of the Cayenne into a powerful-looking feature. 

The original trailer coupling is useable with the body kit free from any problems. The parts of the Hofele body kit are merely fitted at the original fixing points or glued into the vehicle without any changes.

They can also be used for all Cayenne models including the Turbo variant. Sportive dominance is made possible by the new Cayster sports bonnet with two big air intakes and middle Power-Dome. There are two inserts for the air intakes made of real carbon.

The hood is made of heat-resistance CB composite material. It has two dishes. Hofele-Design enhances the vehicle's interior with the company's "Bi-Colour" leather design "Star-Light" with inserted leather crest, offset decorative stitching and quilted elements.

An electric module lifts and lowers the air suspension of the Cayenne. From a standstill to a speed of 70 km/h, the vehicle is lowered to a maximum of 40 mm. When running beyond the speed of 71 km/h, the module is disabled to maintain the serial height to provide the chassis its full comfort and reserves on great speed.

Hofele-Design boosts the power of the Cayenne 3.0 TDI V6 to 300 HP from 245 HP and the torque to 650 Nm from 550 Nm. For the Cayenne S Hybrid, Hofele-Design raises the power to 481 HP from 380 HP and the torque to 737 Nm from 580 Nm.

Porsche Cayenne is now better than it has ever been before. This mid-size luxury crossover SUV is now made even more efficient, more dynamic, lighter and more spacious. With a more Porsche-esque vibe, the new Cayenne is a game changer in the field of technology and elegant design.

New generation Cayennes are led by the Cayenne S Hybrid – the first production car with hybrid drive – paving its way into a modern revolution of efficiency, focusing on reduced fuel consumption by up to 23% (compared to previous models). The principle of Porsche Intelligent Performance has been used in the development of the new Cayenne to maximize power, minimize fuel consumption, achieve greater efficiency and produce lower CO2 emissions.

Among five models in its range, three are recorded below the New European Driving Cycle’s ten-liter fuel consumption per 100-kilometer limit. The Cayenne Diesel (at 195 g/km) and Cayenne S Hybrid (at 193 g/km) on the other hand, belong to the segment of vehicles with emission limit below 200 grams of CO2 per kilometer.

This new range of Cayenne models has a notable reduction in its fuel consumption which is mainly attributed to the introduction of various upgrades and installations – the launch of the new eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic transmission with Auto Start Stop, a broader lineup of gear increments, thermal management for its engine and a transmission cooling circuit, recuperation of the on-board network, variable overrun cut-off, and a consistent reduction of weight and intelligent lightweight construction.

The Porsche Cayenne Turbo is now lighter, thanks to the weight-optimized mix of materials as well as the overall concept changes. For example, despite an improved product substance and a higher standard of all-around safety, its weight has been decreased by not less than 185 kilos (or approximately 410 lb.).
