2013 TechArt Cayman

TECHART Automobildesign adds the TECHART Rear Spoiler II to its recently introduced aerodynamic kit for the new Porsche Cayman models. The refinement specialist for Porsche models from Leonberg developed all parts under consideration of technical and aesthetic aspects to underline the mid-engine sports car’s mentality. For the first time ever TECHART Automobilsdesign presents its individualization program based on Porsche Cayman S at 65th Frankfurt International Motor Show from September 12 to 22 2013.

Design.

The new TECHART Rear Spoiler II, made from high-quality PU-RIM, completes the TECHART Aerodynamic Kit for Porsche Cayman models. Adjustable in two stages, the driver is able to regulate the wing profile’s angle manually. Thus the ambition for aerodynamic balance of the entire vehicle is taken into account consequently. In combination with the TECHART Front Spoiler I the TECHART Rear Spoiler II generates sporty driving characteristics. The rear diffuser with TECHART Diffuser Trim and the centrally located TECHART Sport Tailpipes makes up the distinctive rear. The TECHART design language is transported coherently to the front by upright fins in the side air channels at the rear wheel arches and by side mirror trims.

Together with the TECHART Front Spoiler I with integrated splitter and re-designed and bigger central air duct, the new TECHART Rear Spoiler II gives the Porsche Cayman models a more aggressive look. The outline of the mid-engine sports car appears considerably more powerful and dynamic.
The audible enhancement of the TECHART Program for Porsche Cayman models is undertaken by the valve-controlled TECHART Sport Exhaust System, which lends the 6-cylinder Boxer engine a more sporty and powerful sound at the press of a button. Alternatively the TECHART Sport Exhaust Muffler can be chosen.

TECHART Wheels in 21-inch perfectly match the TECHART Aerodynamic Kit for Porsche Cayman models. Customers can choose the classic 5-spoke TECHART Formula light-alloy wheel or the dynamic twin-spoke design of the weight-reduced TECHART Formula III forged wheel. Optionally available in new attractive colours and finishes just as burnished in glossy smooth finish or bi-colour finish. Additionally planned is the new TECHART Formula IV light-alloy wheel in 21-inch, which is presented for the first time ever at this year’s Frankfurt International Motor Show.
The TECHART Sport Spring Kit lowers the ride height of the Porsche Cayman models by 35 mm compared to a standard suspension and by 25 mm compared to a PASM suspension.

Interior.

TECHART offers a multitude of individual self-realisation opportunities for the interior of Porsche Cayman models. TECHART Leather Interior, TECHART Rooflining in Alcantara including decorative stitching, painted trims and panels as well as TECHART Interior Styling Packages in paint or carbon fibre upgrade the vehicle’s interior and adapt exterior styling features consistently. The TECHART 3-spokes Sport Steering Wheel with ergonomically shaped TECHART Paddle Shifters guarantees precise vehicle control and allows sporty gear changes with maximum driving pleasure. Of course TECHART Paddle Shifters can also be retrofitted to all Porsche sport steering wheels and multifunctional steering wheels with PDK gearshift buttons.
