(from TechArt Press
Release) Athletic beauty: The TechArt Widebody based on
the Porsche Boxster of the 987 model range doesn't only offer
spectacular design but also extra driving fun and agility. After the
huge success of the Widebody concept for the first Boxster
generation, TechArt Automobildesign (
developed a wide body version for the current version of the
With the add-on fender flarings on front and rear axle the TechArt
Widebody is eight centimeters wider than the standard car. The front
extensions don't only provide extra room inside the wheel houses but
also improve the deventilation of the heated up air with their
integrated wheel-house ventilation. The rear flarings are equipped
with largely dimensioned air ducts to bring fresh air to the
centrally placed engine.
Apart from spectacular, sporty design the TechArt designers of
course paid attention to optimal aerodynamic efficiency. The TechArt
front spoiler bumper reduces the lift at the front axle and improves
the cooling of the front brakes with large air ducts. The TechArt
rear apron with integrated diffuser rounds out the conversion.
Extremely broad wheels and tires make the TechArt Widebody concept
for the Boxster complete: Specially for this wide body version they
developed custom-made versions of the one-piece TechArt Formula five
spoke wheel. The front axle is equipped with wheels in size 8.5Jx20,
the rear axle is equipped with 11Jx20 wheels.
After extensive test drives, TechArt Automobildesign recommends
ContiSportContact 2 high performance tires in sizes 235/30 ZR 20
front and 305/25 ZR 20 rear for the Widebody based on the Porsche
Boxster. The height-adjustable TechArt sport suspension is specially
set-up for these ultra-wide wheels and tires and the wider track of
the car. The coil-over suspension doesn't only provide an individual
damping of the roadster but also lowers the two-seater car by some
25 millimeters. Boxster models with PASM system can be updated with
the sporty set up TechArt coil over sport suspension.
TechArt also offers engine tuning for the Widebody. The two
watercooled six-cylinder boxer engines can be upgraded with the
TechArt power kits. They each consist of a sport air filter and
newly programmed engine electronics. The result: 15 hp / 11 kW extra
power and optimized road performance.
