The German tuning house offers tuned engines, body kits and bespoke interiors for all Porsche models. Here’s five of the best.
One of the top tuners in the business, SpeedArt has been tuning Porsches since 1999, and for over a decade it has provided exclusive conversions and individual tuning packages for a range of 911, Cayenne, Panamera, Cayman and Boxster models. From a 400-horsepower Boxster to a 208-mph 911 Turbo, whether the cars are for track or road use, the Porsche specialist offers an array of aftermarket packages. Here we've lovingly prepared five of the finest for your viewing pleasure.
Dubbed the SP81-R, this SpeedArt 981-era Boxster has been upgraded with an aero kit comprised of a new rear wing and diffuser, side skirts and front spoiler for a sportier look and added downforce. The demo car has been finished in black and green and fitted with a new suspension and the customer's choice of several lightweight wheel options from LSC Forged Wheels, including the rims pictured here measuring 20 inches at the front and 21 inches at the rear. Performance boosts include a Boxster S package featuring a turbocharger that adds 80 hp for a total of 395hp. A new exhaust system with sport catalysts and manifolds are also part of the project.
When it came to tuning the Panamera Diesel, speedArt created a power kit that increases power output by 49 hp for a total of 296 horses and torque from 406 to 470 lb-ft via a recalibrated ECU and a pair of sportive twin tailpipes fitted to the original muffler. As for the oil-burning four-door coupe's physique, the rebadged PS9-300D aerodynamic kit includes front and rear spoilers with integrated intakes, plus side skirts, rear diffuser, and a set of serious 22-inch monoblock 5-spoke wheels, heightening the sporty feel whilst packing brand new sport brake calipers that aid stopping power.
The SP91-R is based on the new 991-gen Carrera S and includes a body kit consisting of a new front spoiler, side skirts, rear wing attached to the original rear spoiler and rear diffuser. It sits on a set of matte gray 21-inch LSC forged wheels. The interior features an unconventional blend of black and green leather and Alcantara, while added power comes in the form of a revamp of the Carrera's ECU, good for an extra 25 hp and 15 lb-ft of torque. That means a solid 425 hp from the 911's 3.8-liter inline-6. A sports exhaust system complete with sport-catalytic converters and manifolds has been affixed, while an adjustable sport suspension allows the Porsche to run smoother on the road or track.
The Cayenne EVO-XL 600 package features exterior enhancements with a wide-body kit that includes a front apron, wheel arch extensions, rear apron with a diffuser, side skirts, and a roof spoiler. In addition, there's two-tone paint and a choice of either 22- or 23-inch lightweight forged alloy wheels. The interior features single-piece carbon-fiber shell-type seats and a multi-media unit with an iPad and iPod docking station. Power kits increase output to 600 hp or 700 hp while a sport exhaust system has an optional sound switch control and an electronic lowering module for models fitted with the air suspension.
The speedART BTR-XL 600 is based on the Porsche 997 Turbo, offering a power increase of 120 hp thanks to a modified VTG turbocharger, a sport exhaust with twin tail pipes, sport cats, headers and an optimized controle module. The result is an improved 0-62 time of 3.2 seconds and a new top speed of 208 mph. The body kit consists of a new front bumper, side skirts, rear diffuser and a rear spoiler, with additional mods including 20-inch forged twin-spoke alloys, an adjustable sport suspension and bespoke interior with sport seats, sport steering wheels and special leather or alcantara trim.
