Techart Waves Goodbye To The Porsche 911 With Exclusive Upgrade

Tuning / Comments

What better way to say farewell to such an awesome car.

In the Porsche tuning scene, Techart is one of the most well respected firms out there. The German tuning house is well-known for taking all sorts of Porsche models, and pumping their performance up to supercar levels. Techart has been very successful with the current 991.2 generation 911, but with a new 992 generation quickly approaching, the company has decided to give the current car the final send off it deserves: introducing the Exclusive Performance Package for the 991.2 911 Turbo S.

The car will be called the GTsport 1 of 30, indicating that just 30 examples will be built. Techart says the package will focus on three virtues - courage, style and performance - all of which have characterized the 911 Turbo S since 1974. The changes start on the exterior with all-new Techart parts made out of carbon fiber. To improve the cold air system, the GTsport package includes side air intake trims, a ram-air scoop, front grilles, and an air outlet grille all made from carbon fiber. A roof spoiler, side skirt trims, rear louvers, and a diffuser are also included to improve the balance between lift and downforce. To help you know what you're looking at, the car features "GTsport 1 of 30" lettering on both doors.

Of course, the engine has also been upped from 580 to 640 horsepower, and torque has been increased from 553 to 649 lb-ft. 0-62 mph takes just 2.7 seconds and the car can reach a top speed of 210 mph. To help the car handle better, Techart has also given the car sport springs, which lower the 911 Turbo S by around 30 mm. The transformation is then finished off with Techart Formula IV Race Bi-Color forged rims wrapped in Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires and some unique interior touches. Techart is currently offering the GTsport 1 of 30 package for a little less than 30,000 euros (around $34,700).
