(from TechArt Press
Release) Athletic beauty: The TechArt Widebody based on
the Porsche Cayman S doesn’t only offer spectacular design but also
extra driving fun and agility. After the huge success of the
Widebody concept for the current Boxster generation, TechArt
now developed a wide body version for the mid-engine coupe.
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.
The tail of the car can be alternatively upgraded with the large
TechArt GT sport rear wing or a subtle rear spoiler.
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 12Jx20 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. 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.
Cayman models with PASM system can be updated with the sporty set up
TechArt VarioPlus coil over sport suspension. This suspension isn’t
only adjustable in height but also in damping by a push on the
button inside the cockpit.
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.
Another performance option is the TechArt increase in displacement
from standard 3,387 cm³ to 3,824 cm³. The increase is facilitated by
a bore enlarged to 99 millimeters with the corresponding larger
special pistons, and by the installation of a special crankshaft.
The engine conversion further includes sports camshafts. A modified
intake manifold with special air filter system and an aluminum
header provide ample combustion air. The perfect interaction of all
these components including the fully stainless-steel
high-performance exhaust system with high-performance manifolds is
orchestrated by new mapping for the engine electronics.
With a maximum power output of 385 hp / 283 kW and a peak torque of
407 Nm the TechArt displacement engine satisfies both highly sporty
minded drivers as well as those pilots who want lots of pulling
power from low engine speed.
Powered by this engine, the mid-engine sports car offers excellent
performance: The sprint from 0 - 100 km/h takes just 4.9 seconds,
and with a top speed of 303 km/h the TechArt two-seater easily bests
its production counterpart in this discipline, too.
TechArt offers individual full leather trims in all colors and
designs for the Widebody. The range reaches from completing the
ex-works leather trims up to a completely redesigned cockpit with
special sports seats and ergonomically shaped airbag sports steering
