Click above for a hi-res gallery of the GT Street RS

The Porsche 911 GT2 has 530 horsepower, 505 lb-ft of torque and is capable of going 204 mph. And it's not enough. Not for TechArt, at least. You know TechArt. They take Porsches that already push the limits of performance and go all Chuck Yeager on them, probing for new and more crazy limits. Generally they find them, then they package them up and offer them to the moneyed public. Case in point: the new GT Street RS. What begins as a "normal" GT2 turns into a 700-horsepower, 634 lb-ft (860 Nm) warp-enabled street predator when the TechArt people are through messing with it.

The myriad changes include new bodywork that improves the car's aerodynamics, updated chassis components, a customized and caged interior, and a laundry list of underhood modifications. The turbos, intercoolers, headers, electronics, pressure sensor, air filter and exhaust system all get updated by TechArt, facilitating the transformation from factory supercar to ballistic missile with wheels. Now, where'd we leave those launch codes...

      I may get low ranked, but Now I'm like:

      So many Porsches, so little room left to care.

      ***It's a good time to release this in order to erase people's image of a $127,000 Panamera. Once again. LMAO***

        One could say the same thing about Corvette.

        WOW!!! A Corvette C6 Z51 pkg. WOW!!! its a Z06 WOW!!! a ZR1.

        The only difference is wheels, slight body mods, & of course engine suspension upgrades. I might get low ranked for my comments too... :) :) :) ???

      I thought Autoblog was one of the only places I could get away from pornography on the net, but here I am and these pictures are proving me wrong.

      call me a rookie driver but how can you drive this car on the legal street road its practically scraping the road. Imagine driving this around L.A or NYC.

      I must say I do not care for that body work. Way too busy and overdone.

      Performance Upgrades are always cool...although it sounds like it would take one heck of a driver to ever fully appreciate and handle it...

      that's damn hot.

      TechArt seems to have an affinity for "fangs" on it's custom front bumper designs... with the sides extending down to, or even below the front air dam edge. Not my favorite, but that is fine.

      The rest of the design is very menacing, and quite aggressive, and quite well implemented. TechArt usually is top-shelf accessorizing and "tuning" for Porsche.
