2011 TechArt Porsche Panamera GrandGT

October 25th, 2010 No comments

Based on the Porsche Panamera, the TechArt GrandGT combines all of the features, for which TechArt is known, into one program – exceptional sportiness in combination with unique comfort. The masculine and extravagant level of the Panamera individualization will celebrate its world premiere at the 2010 Auto Zurich Car Show.

Exceptional Character: Visible and Invisible

Original TechArt programs have always stood for highest quality. This fundamental principle has been incorporated in TechArt’s new exterior package for the Panamera without any compromises. The consistent and intelligent use of selected high-tech materials and a unique style of design ensure that the TechArt GrandGT leverages its exceptional character.

Hidden Qualities: The Material

GT – uniquely sporty, which is embodied by the program not only in design. The GrandGT internalizes it as well. The exterior package consists of a fiber-reinforced composite based on carbon, glass-fiber-reinforced plastic and polyurethane RIM components. These materials are primarily used in motor sports and are distinguished by their extraordinary product characteristics. The exterior components of the TechArt GrandGT program are remarkable, among other things, thanks to an impressive dimensional stability, great strength and low intrinsic weight.

Impressive Appearance: The Design

The TechArt GrandGT favors a spectacular performance. The TechArt-typical exterior design catches the eye of onlookers immediately. The powerful front bumper with integrated splitter and large ventilation intakes, for an improved supply of fresh air to the intercooler and an optimum cooling of the brake system, flawlessly underlines the dynamic contours. TechArt-typical: the sporty four-seater’s suitability for everyday use. The multifunctional daytime running lights that are integrated in the front bumper give the Panamera not only a distinctive appearance. It combines daytime running lights, position lights, parking lights and turn signals as LED system unit in a common housing and integrates seamlessly in the design of the Panamera’s front. An additional design highlight is the TechArt Aero engine hood that is constructed of high-quality carbon fibers, with integrated air outlets for an optimized regulation of the heat balance in the engine compartment and which impressively completes the GrandGT program for the Panamera’s front end.

Powerful side skirts and flared fenders increase the width of the Panamera by 21mm on each side of the front axle compared to the standard vehicle and 42mm on each side of the rear axle, resulting in a wider track and thus improved cornering abilities. Typical TechArt: attention to detail. Headlight trims or trim slats for the side air outlets made of high-quality polyurethane RIM set elegant highlights on the side of the vehicle in individual color combinations and emphasize the dynamic appearance of the GrandGT.

The design of the rear end incorporates the front’s design and emphasizes the unique character of the GrandGT – sporty, confident and masculine. In combination with the TechArt roof spoiler, the much larger rear spoiler compared to the first Panamera Program, results in even less lift at the rear axle and greater driving stability and active safety – even at high speed. An additional GrandGT design feature: the distinctive rear apron with integrated air openings and matching diffuser. The oval dual tail pipes of TechArt’s sporty exhaust system, which are fully integrated in the vehicle’s rear end, optimally complete the exterior tuning package. As an alternative, a sporty exhaust system with valve control can be selected – for audible more sportiness.

Exceptional Sportiness: The Performance

Taking a look under the Aero-engine hood, the GrandGT is still impressive. The TechArt Engine styling package consisting of carbon fiber cylinder-head covers with an embossed TechArt logotype as well as accentuating highlights in flash red is demonstrating the power of the car already in standstill. The TechArt powerkit TA 070/T1 boosts the power output oft the 4.8 l twin-turbo engine from 368 kW to 426 kW. The generated torque increases from 700 Nm to powerful 830 Nm. Pushing the standard sport button the Panamera has a significant increase of performance and driving dynamics. The TechArt engine management TECHTRONIC comes up with a number of impressive product features. The intelligent electronic power management convinces with quick and easy installation as well as maintaining the electronic engine protection features and the vehicle diagnostics and servicing. Like every factory-new TechArt product, the high quality standard of the TechArt powerkit is backed by a two-year limited warranty. Furthermore TechArt grants an additional warranty on damages at engine or gearbox if caused by the TechArt powerkit.

Consistent design and inimitable style – this also applies to the original TechArt wheels. No matter which of the three wheel designs the customer will choose, besides attractive standard color variants, all TechArt wheels are available in individually matched custom colors. For the TechArt GrandGT Program the TechArt Formula light alloy wheels are available in 20- and 21-inch, the TechArt Formula II design in 22-inch and the TechArt Formula III forged light alloy wheels in 21- and 22-inch.

Unique Comfort: The Interior

The passion for perfection and the use of high-quality materials form the focal point of interior individualization of the TechArt GrandGT based on the Porsche Panamera. TechArt interiors are distinguished by exceptional quality. Ranging from setting fine accents such as decorative stitching in custom color or parts in fine wood trim through to unique interior packages refined in all details, care and precision in the workmanship provided by the TechArt in-house manufacture are unique.

TechArt guarantees a great ride at all four seats thanks to the wide variety of entertainment options available for the Panamera. For instance, TechArt offers, among other things, an entertainment package with two 7-inch screens that are seamlessly integrated in the design of the front seat backrests, incorporated in a high-quality leather screen console matching the color of the vehicle’s interior, for entertainment in the rear passenger compartment of the four-seater. A highlight for the Panamera: the TechArt center console unit for adding a 12V outlet and integrated cup holder to the storage compartment located in the rear passenger compartment. Exclusively available for the Panamera: TechArt rear fold-away tables. Thanks to rugged mechanisms and high-quality materials, the fold-away tables can be used, on the one hand, as a mobile work space for when on the road and as a personal area for relaxing when on long trips.

2010 Porsche 911 GT3 RS at Nurburgring 24 hour

March 11th, 2010 1 comment

Preparations for the racing comeback of Walter Rohrl (63) at the Nürburgring 24 hour race are at full revs. During a seat fitting at the Weissach Motorsport Centre, the double WRC champion met the teammates with which he will share the cockpit of the standard Porsche 911 GT3 RS on 15th and 16th May. Former DTM pilot Roland Asch (59) as well as journalists Horst von Saurma-Jeltsch (55) and Chris Harris (35) know the Nürburgring-Nordschleife like the backs of their hands and have
contested Germany’s greatest long distance race several times.

Double DTM vice-champion Roland Asch has tackled the 24 hour event in the Eifel more than a dozen times. In 2004 he secured fifth overall. The foundation for Asch’s career was laid in the Porsche brand trophy series. Contesting the Porsche 944 Turbo Cup, the Swabian proved to be virtually unbeatable, winning the championship three times straight. In 1991, he claimed the championship title of the Porsche Carrera Cup Deutschland. Already in the 2010 season, Roland Asch has a race track marathon behind him.

At the wheel of a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup, he contested the Dubai 24 hour race where he fought long and hard for the lead until his retirement.

At his debut race in 1987, Horst von Saurma-Jeltsch was Asch’s teammate in the 944 Turbo Cup. It didn’t take long for the Nürburgring-Nordschleife to become the favourite circuit of the editor-in-chief of the specialist magazine “sport auto”. Since 1988, Horst von Saurma-Jeltsch has contested the 24 hour classic twenty times. In 2001, the 55-year-old shared the cockpit of a Porsche 911 GT3 R with a line-up that included Porsche works driver Timo Bernhard. As a journalist, he regular conducts tests on the Nordschleife and in 2004 even set a lap record with a Porsche Carrera GT.

British motorsport journalist Chris Harris got his first taste of the Nordschleife in 1999. Since then he has contested the 24 hour race four times, most recently in 2007 in the cockpit of a Porsche 911 GT3 Cup. During the 2008 season, Harris yielded tenth place with a 911 at the Nürburgring long distance championship (VLN). At two guest appearances in the Carrera Cup Great Britain, he brought home sixth and seventh place.

In preparation for the 24 hour marathon, Röhrl and his fellow racers aim to contest two VLN races with their 450 hp Porsche 911 GT3 RS. “I’m sure we will quickly familiarise ourselves with the track and the car,” said a confident Röhrl. “We’ll need to practice our pit stops. After all, it was 17 years ago that I last made a driver change at race speed.”
