Techart has worked its magic, yet again, on the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo, boosting output of the twin-turbo'd flat-six to 660 hp and 634 lb.-ft. of torque. The Techart GTstreet R benefits from a duo of new turbos, larger carbon fiber inlet pipes, revised intercoolers and a new cat-back exhaust mated to the revised manifold which all help to drop the 997's 0-60 time to 3.4 seconds when equipped with an auto 'box and 3.5 seconds with a manual. Top speed is a claimed 214 mph.

Keeping the Techart-modified 911 planted at speed is a new coil-over kit and 20-inch wheels that work in conjunction with a wind-tunnel-tested body kit and carbon fiber spoiler to add another 22 pounds of down force. If those specs aren't enough to make it stand out, Techart also offers a new hood, carbon fiber headlights, side sills and air ducting for the rear bumper.

PRESS RELEASE

The TECHART GTstreet R.

TECHART Automobildesign GmbH presents the direct successor to the TECHART GTstreet RS presented in spring – the new TECHART GTstreet R, based on the Porsche 911 Turbo.

'Quod erat demonstrandum' (this completes the proof). It was with this sentence that Sir Isaac Newton always completed the presentation of his mathematics and physics-based evidence. At TECHART, the phrase stands for the challenge of kitting out 'Non plus ultra' ex works vehicles with impressive performance capabilities. The result: the TECHART GTstreet RS based on the Porsche 911 GT2.

This vehicle concept is now being applied to the Porsche 911 Turbo in the form of the TECHART GTstreet R. The latest addition to the TECHART GTstreet family, which has stood for uncompromising sportiness since 2001, is therefore one of the world's top performing sports cars.

Impressive performance data
The GTstreet R is fitted with the TECHART performance kit TA097/T3 with an engine performance of 485 kW (660 hp) and a maximum torque of 860 Nm at 4,600 rpm. The GTstreet R with Tiptronic S can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.4 seconds and with manual transmission it only takes a tenth of a second longer. The remarkable propulsion levels out at a top speed of 345 km/h.

An ample increase in performance is guaranteed thanks to the new turbochargers, large carbon fibre inlet pipes, special intercoolers, a sports exhaust system combined with high-performance manifolds and an improved sports air filter. A balanced downforce on the front and back axels and specially adapted TECHART VarioPlus coil over suspension guarantee excellent driving performance at high speeds and ensure extra driving stability and safety.

Technology meets emotion
The design of the car body brings sporting agility and a perfect exterior design. The aero-bonnet, headlight trims and mirror trims, striking sill panels and carbon fibre roof spoiler characterise the dynamic design of this sports car. Precise air ducts on the front spoiler and rear wing optimise the engine ventilation. The striking rear apron with its carbon fibre diffuser and air ducts to the intercooler are additional special features of the comprehensive TECHART GTstreet R aerodynamic programme.

TECHART interiors stand for exceptional quality and care worldwide and are produced by hand at the TECHART saddlers department. This also applies to the diverse range of interiors available for the TECHART GTstreet R. A high degree of design freedom is on offer including individually tailored leather fittings, striking decorative stitching and sporty highlights in individual colour combinations. Additional accessories such as the non-slip TECHART 3-spoke sports wheel, aluminium pedals and much more round off this comprehensive range of interiors.

      Wow, those wheels are great, and it doesn't look overdone, just very fit for its purpose of going very fast

      I'll pass...

      Considering the tech art with 630HP got its butt whooped big time in the last H2H against the Cobb GT-R. It was a brutal loss that threw a dark cloud over TechArt as bling cars vs. performance cars.

      I would be absolutely OK if the car was bone stock engine-wise as long as it looked like that! Hell, if you're paying that much for a car at least make it stand out like this.

      Um where do I send my first born. I'll start working on it right now.

      Um, do you guys know anything about Techart? They are, in a matter of speaking, the ricer's of high-end German tuning.

      All their cars every have is super high horsepower, and outrageous bodykits.

      Ill stick with real Porsche tuners, such as Cargraphic. Winner of the Modified Luxury and Exotic track battle.

        +1 for the rice.

        I'd go with Ruf though.
      • 6 Years Ago
      Sometimes the line between tuner and manufacturer can be blurred. I am not sure about Tech Art, but Ruf is not a "tuner" they are an independent manufacturer. As far is this car is concerned...it is OK, but I would rather have a nice 1987 Ruf CTR. Looks stock except for a few minor details and had a verified top speed of 217 mph. A sleeper 911 !

      Evo and Car magazines tested some Techart and Gemballa top-models recently, and concluded they really are rubbish in comparison to a stock car. Even with the extra power and stiff suspension they were slower than GT2s/GT3s on the same track.

      So if you actually want to go fast, get a RUF or breathed on factory model. These are better off going slow and looking cool.

      If I were the owner of one of these, I would make it a point to make a road trip to the nearest high-speed ring to see if it does reach its claimed top speed! Lots o fun!
