It will get heads turning, that's for sure.
TechArt has revealed a new art car based on the GTstreet R Cabriolet, a specially tuned version of the Porsche 911 Turbo S Cabriolet.
Unveiled at the Manila Auto Salon 2023, the vehicle showcases TechArt's premium individualization capabilities and the talents of Filipino artist Ronald Ventura. The aggressive bodywork of the GTstreet R has been transformed into a pricy canvas, with Ventura using every surface to convey his signature look.
Highly detailed flames dominate the car's rear fascia and spill over to the wheel arches and rear spoiler. Along the sides of the 911, bright blue and vivid yellow hues contrast sharply with the white body color. Subtle details, like the wheel rims, have been matched to the mural. It's certainly not to everyone's taste, a point hammered home by the somewhat eccentric painting of a white stallion on the hood.
Ventura, 50, is known for his distinctive style and intricate layering, applied in his paintings and sculptures, and this is not the first time TechArt has worked with Ventura to create an art car. Last year, the artist worked his magic on a Porsche GTstreet R coupe, providing the supercar with an exclusive yellow-and-black livery.
TechArt has not said whether the car will be sold to a customer in the Philippines but notes the GTstreet R was commissioned by Import Hookup, the sole authorized distributor of TechArt in the country, suggesting that it was created for marketing purposes. As an attention-grabber, it certainly fulfills its role.
Aside from the extroverted artwork, the vehicle also showcases many TechArt accessories, including redesigned bumpers with carbon fiber trim, wheel arch extenders, new interior materials and finishes, and more.
TechArt isn't just about the aesthetics, offering performance upgrade packages to improve the already strong pulling power of the 911 Turbo S. A stage 1 kit increases outputs to 700 horsepower and 663 lb-ft of torque. If that's still not enough, the tuner can fit new turbochargers (among other things), boosting power to 788 hp and 700 lb-ft.
As a reminder, the standard Turbo S makes do with 640 hp and 590 lb-ft, allowing it to march to 60 mph in a blistering 2.7 seconds. Suspension and wheel upgrades are also available, along with custom interior finishes. The tuner recently introduced a new 3D configurator, so head over there to see if you can come up with something cooler.
