Porsche 911 Turbo S With Exposed Green Carbon Fiber Looks Extraordinary

Tuning / Comments

That exposed carbon fiber is just stunning.

While the Porsche 911 Turbo S is one of the most exciting cars money can buy, some may find the subtle styling to be a bit of a letdown. And that's no bad thing. The halo 911 has always been a restrained and usable alternative to comparable Lamborghinis and Ferraris. But, if you prefer your Porsche to stand out from the crowd, there are any number of tuners who will transform the 911 into a flashy status symbol.

TopCar is a prime example. Not too long ago, the company unveiled the Stinger GTR Limited Carbon Edition, a 1-of-13 carbon-bodied 911 Turbo it described as the "most complicated project in the history of the company." It certainly makes quite a statement, but it's rendered positively dull when compared to TopCar's final version, seen here in a stunning shade of green. The aerodynamically designed body kit comprises 84 individual parts, all of which contain four layers of the lightweight material.

The intricate pattern of the carbon fiber isn't unlike the design you'll find on several Pagani supercars; TopCar describes the weave as "Pagani Style." The Stinger GTR Carbon Edition is more aggressive than any Turbo S we've seen, with the front fascia receiving a new front bumper, replete with contrasting grey carbon finishes.

The side skirts are finished in the same hue and so too are the rear diffuser and tailpipe surrounds. It works rather nicely with the rich green bodywork, but some may consider the wheel arch vents to be overkill. Then again, this isn't a car designed for shrinking violets. Around the back, a racier rear wing completes the look.

Those wanting the complete package will spring for the optional RS Edition aluminum forged wheels for €8,000 (approx. $8,400) and the Akrapovic titanium exhaust system at €6,500 (approx. $6,800). Overall, it's more appealing than the brown 911 Turbo previewed by TopCar in January.

If you're tempted by this unique proposition, you should be prepared to fork out vast sums of money. The package will set you back €100,000 (approx. $105,000) but you can easily inflate the total price by springing for some choice extras. This particular green-finished Turbo boasts a custom leather interior with camouflage inserts and carbon inlays, a pricey €35,000 (approx. $36,700) option.

TopCar makes no mention of performance upgrades but, then again, the 640 horsepower and 590 lb-ft of torque afforded by the twin-turbo 3.8-liter flat-six provides plenty of motivation. Even for the average Porsche owner, this is a massively expensive upgrade. Then again, it justifies its price through rarity. If you prefer your enhanced 911 Turbo with a more subtle look (but way more power), the Brabus-fettled 820 911 Turbo S may be just for you.

It may not be as attention-grabbing as TopCar's carbon wonder, but Brabus offers buyers 809 hp and 701 lb-ft - more than enough to blow the doors off most challengers.
