2010 Techart Porsche 911 Turbo – Click above for high-res image gallery

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.

      INfamous?

        "IN-famous... It means MORE THAN famous!"

        Lets see who gets that movie reference. Here's another hint... :D

        "what is a 'Plethora?' I don't think you know what a 'plethora' is!"

      Umm...

      the LED winglet lights... are Porsche factory items. Tech-Art has an alternate version with a slightly different design, but the Porsche designers put LED lights on those cars from the factory, so I doubt they are cringing.

      I just wish the fog lights didn't look like a complete afterthought on the 997 Turbos.

      And I wouldn't mind an adaptation of Cayenne's new "angry" fascia onto the 997 and the Panamera.

        I agree, i don't like the front facia at all on the Turbo, if i had the money for a turbo I would replace it with the front bumper from a Carerra S. (if it fit properly)

        @ Mayoman , what about aerodynamics at high speeds ? i'd change the turbo front with a GT2 front.
        • 4 Years Ago
        @ BoxerFanatic , true , only the wheels and side skirts are new.

      LMAO,, at the price offered they should supply a driver for the first year owned.
      Lets talk about some real cars ,like the new SS Camaro that comes tuned and ready to go wihout a turbo. Compare apples to apples with comparable delivered costs. $80,000 to $100,000 Camaro will out perform a turbo 911 in the same price range any day even in reverse.

      Really? Someone tuned a 911 Turbo? There can't have been any more than 562 varieties of tuned 911 Turbos released this year...

      Does anyone honestly care about Porsche tuners? Tuning seems to me like it is inherently more interesting when done to more pedestrian cars, whether of the Asian import or American muscle variety.

        "Does anyone honestly care about Porsche tuners?" you answered your own question with "562 varieties of tuned 911 Turbos released this year..."

        Yeah Bob, but the Porsche does NOT come with its own attached Mobile Home to pull behind it like the Camaro does.

      Any one can tune a turbo, with injectors and a control unit. Tune a car with a carb and a distributor. Now your talking.

      Do they make the same kit for the VW Beetle?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Heck, that is just what I need for the hour long twelve mile commute on the jammed Interstates around here. I guess I would have to go shopping out in Montana to test this baby!
