If you own a Porsche 718 Boxster or Cayman, we know someone who can comprehensively modify your car, and that is none other than TechArt. This group specializes in customized body kits, with the carbon fiber package, the custom wheels or the personalized interior.
Now you are probably wondering what makes them stand out from the rest of the aftermarket tuners, because everyone pretty much offers the same options. Well, here is something that may sound new to you. TechArt can install a newly developed axle lift system that can lift your 718 model so it can clear common obstacles including ramps, speed humps and curbs in just a push of a button.
Furthermore, there is also a nose lift package that gives it an extra 60 mm (2.3 inches) ground clearance. This includes two front axle sport springs, two for the rear, two hydraulic cylinders, a hydraulic unit, the installation kit and the assembly instructions.
Aside from that, there’s also a power kit that will push the 718’s 2.5 liter flat-four to its maximum. This will give it an additional 50 horsepower together with 60 Newton metres (44 pound feet) over the stock car. This makes it produce a total of 400 PS (394 horsepower) and 480 Newton metres (354 pound feet) of torque. It is a powerful car that has pretty good handling in that the peak torque is ready to serve as early as 1,900 rpm.
If this may be of interest to you, you might want to head to the Essen Motor Show that runs until December 10, as they are showcasing a TechArt modified 718 Cayman S that features both the power kit and the lift system.
We are all aware that the 718 Cayman GTS coupe and Boxster GTS convertible are meant for people who want an attractive and at the same time, powerful car. The base 300 horsepower model already costs as much as $63,000, while getting the S model with 350 horsepower will cost even more.
Both the Cayman and the Boxster, as mentioned earlier, are pretty fast cars. They can accelerate to 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in just 4.1 seconds in automatic (PDK), while the manual versions can do it in 4.6. They come with an impressive top speed of 290 kilometers per hour too. Another feature that it is proud of is the drop in fuel consumption, to an average of 8.2 liters per 100 kilometers.
