Pull Over For The Porsche 911 Targa Police Car

Tuning / Comments

It was built to raise awareness for safe car tuning.

Techart is arguably one of the most prolific Porsche tuners in Europe. Recently, the German tuner unveiled the 800-hp GTstreet R based on the 911 Turbo and Turbo S and has worked on upgrades for the Taycan, Porsche's first electric sports car. If you want to tune your car and take its performance to the next level, it's important to do it safely because some cars supplied by aftermarket tuners are illegal and not safe to drive. How do you raise awareness of safe car tuning? By getting tuners to create custom police cars. Only in Germany.

Since 2005, Germany's 'Tune it! Safe!' campaign run by the Federal Ministry of Transport and supported by the German Association of Automobile Tuners has been encouraging car owners to use quality tuning components and support reputable aftermarket tuners.

Collaborating with aftermarket tuners, the campaign has spawned several police-themed tuner cars over the years. The latest is this Porsche 911 Targa 4 police car modified by Techart to show that tuning doesn't have to go against legal requirements. Wrapped in a German blue and yellow police livery, Techart's Porsche 911 Targa is customized with an aero-enhancing body kit optimized in a wind tunnel that includes a front spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser, and a rear spoiler.

Three-dimensional Techart lettering adorns the rear, while emergency flashing lights on the roof and a carbon hood lid with integrated emergency lights help create an imposing Porsche police car.

Rounding off the modifications are Formula V multi-spoke wheels and sport springs that lower the ride height by 1.57 inches to sharpen up the handling. Techart hasn't provided any performance specifications, so the powertrain presumably hasn't been tweaked.

As standard, the Porsche 911 Targa 4 is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged boxer six-cylinder engine that produces 443 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque in the range-topping Targa 4S, which is sent to all four wheels through either an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch or seven-speed manual transmission. Techart's Porsche 911 Targa 4 won't be used for police duties, but it will be showcased at the Essen Motor Show between November 26 and December 5.
