When one of these press photos instantly becomes my Twitter profile’s headline graphic, you know TechArt is doing something right!
The latest upgrades for the super-hot 2015 Porsche Macan hit exactly the right notes. In what we are calling Stage Two versus the previous wheel options from TechArt, the team has revealed a subtle but effective aero kit.
Up front, a deeper nose-plate in contrast grey helps ground the Macan’s somewhat awkward grille design, and this ground effects kit wraps the sills and rear diffuser as well.
We enjoy all these upgrades and accents in Acid Green, as this is the color Porsche has long used for its 918 Spyder and and 911 Edition 918. It looks stellar over the black paint of the demo truck.
We would strongly recommend all of the plug-and-play modules for the engine and suspension especially, but the interior suede wraps for the headliner and details are also undeniably swanky.
The Macan is the hottest thing to hit the Porsche books since the Panamera – and TechArt knows it.
Their first set of upgrades is already well under way — with details promised for a styling overhaul in a month or so.
Until then, we have the first four wheel styles available for any Macan Porsche, plus the well-regarded Engine and Suspension module upgrades from the TechArt Cayenne. Both of these plug-and-play mods keep all the mechanicals the same, but liberate a huge amount of extra power and earlier torque peaks.
High recommended is the new exhaust as well. Stay tuned for more details, and order these new MACAN wheels as a backup pair for your winter mud/snow/season tires today!

TECHART chassis and suspension options for the Porsche Macan.
TECHART Automobildesign injects variability and sportiness into the Porsche Macan models. The TECHART Air Suspension Module Sport, already known from the Porsche Cayenne models, as well as the TECHART Sport Spring Kit allow customers individual settings of chassis and suspension. While the TECHART Air Suspension Module achieves an intelligent electronic height adjustment in driving and parking mode for the Porsche Macan models equipped with standard air suspension, the TECHART Sport Spring Kit realizes a height lowering for vehicles without this feature.
