The infamous Porsche tuners at Techart have unveiled the company's new tuning program for the 2010 911 Turbo. If you find the car's styling boring and the power lacking, the crew has what you need to wrench a full 620 horsepower out of the factory 3.8-liter flat-six. Techart starts by ditching the factory exhaust manifolds and pipes for an easy-breathing system built in-house. Throw in a sports air filter and an ECU reflash, and you've got an extra 120 horsepower over what Stuttgart deems necessary.
As usual, Techart has worked over the rest of the car's systems to keep up with the nudge in power. A set of fully-adjustable coilovers have found their way under the Turbo, along with massive brakes on all four corners. The company will even throw in its "Nose Lift" system for the right price, meaning the 620 horsepower missile won't quiver in fear at the site of a speed bump.
The tuner is also providing a selection of aero kits, from the subdued Stage I to the somewhat more air-inlet happy Stage II. Both of the front fascias wear Techart's new Audi-esque day time running lights set low in the car's grille. We can feel Porsche designers cringing from here.
