TECHART Develops Powerkit to Squeeze More Power From the 911
The new TECHART Powerkit for the 911 Turbo S provides a power gain of 60 hp which makes a total of 640 hp and 880 Nm (stock: 580 hp, 750 Nm). With the new powerkit for the 911 Carrera S, 480 hp and 580 Nm are at the driver’s command (stock: 420 hp, 500 Nm).
TECHART TECHTRONIC: Software
TECHART develops individual multidimensional engine maps for every model. This engine maps react dynamically on the relevant parameters such as engine speed, gas pedal position and various engine temperatures. This ensures an intelligent balance of power increase and engine protection in every situation.
TECHART TECHTRONIC: Integration
The operation of TECHTRONIC powerkits is intuitive. To activate the permanent power boost, the driver simply switches from NORMAL to SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode by using the standard Sport Button at the centre console or the standard Mode Selector at the steering wheel. While in NORMAL mode, the TECHART TECHTRONIC is inactive and the vehicle is operating with its standard power and its standard driving characteristics.
TECHART TECHTRONIC is integrated in the vehicle’s CAN data bus system. Unlike conventional electronic aftermarket power-upgrade devices, TECHTRONIC evaluates not only boost pressure and manifold air pressure, but all measured and monitored data required for a precise, dynamic and quick responding management of engine and drivetrain. Last but not least, TECHART TECHTRONIC does not affect the vehicle diagnostics or the standard electronic engine protection features.
TECHART TECHTRONIC: Results
The range of TECHART powerkits offers a wide variety for nearly every Porsche model. Such as the 60 hp / 80 Nm increase for the 911 Carrera S, the 100 hp / 130 Nm enhancement for the Panamera Turbo or even the 180 hp / 170 Nm boost for the Cayenne Turbo, which includes TECHART components in addition to the TECHTRONIC such as high performance TECHART turbo chargers.
