Can't wait for the new Porsche 911 GT3 to arrive? Techart has an alternative.
Techart is one of the most renown Porsche tuners in the world, so it was only a matter of time before it took the new 992-generation Porsche 911 to the next level. After unveiling a slew of new customization options for the new 911 that aren't part of the standard Porsche parts catalog, Techart has launched two new performance packages for the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera Coupe and Cabriolet that give the German sports car a power boost and a more aggressive soundtrack.
Headlining the new performance range is a sports exhaust made of titanium. Exhaust valves are dynamically adjusted, providing "extraordinary soundscapes and emotional exhaust backfire at will." The sound can also be adjusted using the regular driving mode switch and also automatically adjusts to sound more aggressive or refined depending on the driving style.
Compared to a stainless steel version, Techart's titanium sports exhaust is 40 percent lighter and includes a valve-controlled Techart muffler, electronic valve management unit and the required wiring harness. Alternatively, Techart is also selling new carbon exhaust tips finished in high gloss or matt that can be fitted with the tuner's sport exhaust system or Porsche's standard sports exhaust.
As for performance ugprades, Techart's new power kit boosts the output of the 2020 Porsche Carrera S and 4S by 80 horsepower bringing the total to 530 hp, while torque has been increased by 73 lb-ft to 464 lb-ft of torque.
That makes the entry-level 992-generation Carrera more powerful than the current 911 GT3. With the standard factory gasoline particulate filter installed, the upgrade increases the output to 510 horsepower and 449 lb-ft of torque.
Without the gasoline particulate filter, Techart's 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera 4S will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 3.1 seconds, an improvement of 0.1 seconds, 0-100 mph in 6.7 seconds, and 0-124 mph in 10.4 seconds. Top speed increases from 190 mph to 195 mph.
Pricing hasn't been confirmed for this powerful package just yet. But for reference, the 2020 Porsche 911 Carrera S starts at $113,300.
