TECHART GTStreet RS based on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS

TECHART presents the GTStreet RS based on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS at the IAA. It is the most powerful car which has ever left the workshop in Leonberg. The super sports car fascinates with an impressive performance of 530 kW (720 PS) and 900 Nm torque in combination with an unmistakable characteristic body kit.

High End Performance
TECHART power kits are uncompromisingly sporty as well as suitable for daily on road use. These features as well as the years of experience of the TECHART engineers were given to the development of the power kit TA 097/T2.2 for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The overall performance of the sports car increases to 530 kW (720 hp), the maximum torque to 900 Nm. The measured data is impressive: the GTStreet RS accelerates from zero to hundred in 3.3 seconds. After 9.5 seconds the needle passes the 200 km/h mark. With a maximum speed of up to 352 km/h the top athlete confirms his new strength in an extraordinary way.

Unique design
The TECHART GTStreet RS impresses with performance – and its look. Its capability is reflected in the extraordinary exterior design of the sports car. The significantly lowered front apron with a fixed carbon splitter and an adjustable splitter of hard-wearing polyurethane-RIM ensures additional downforce and due to additional air-ducts an improved airflow to the brakes and intercooler. Eye-catcher at the rear: the rear spoiler made entirely of carbon-fibre - handling in extreme conditions is significantly smoother as a result. A rear apron with an integrated diffuser in carbon-fibre, air outlets as well as carbon-fibre air wings close the GTStreet RS program.

Performance and suitability for daily us fully compatible
Furthermore available is the TECHART Noselift System for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The hydraulic system features a trouble-free backfitting, a rapid height adjustment of approximately 10 mm/s with particularly silent operation as well as fully integrated operation via a button with a status indicator at the roof console. Besides the perfect integration in the GT2 RS, EMC-safe electronic control units, vehicle-specific CAN bus integrated wiring harnesses as well as high-performance test procedures are part of the premium development process.

Furthermore TECHART offers the 20-inch Formula Race lightweight forged centerlock wheel in sizes of 8,5J x 20 ET 40 and 8,5J x 20 ET 52 for the front axle and 12J x 20 ET 50 for the rear axle for the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. The rigidity and weight ratio was optimized for the TECHART Formula Race and - based on the lighter twin spokes and the connection through the centerlock - provides a weight advantages of 10% if compared to the TECHART Formula III forged wheel and impressive 25% if compared to a light alloy wheel. The result: a reduction of the rotating and unsprung mass, which results in an even more agile driving behaviour and increased driving dynamics.

Craftsmanship down to the last detail
Passion and love of detail – the exclusive TECHART character is also reflected in the interior of the sports car. TECHART's complete leather furnishings ensure in combination with a delicately fashioned and custom-coloured decorative stitching a unique feeling. Individual decorative components made of carbon-fibre or aluminium pedals and illuminated door entry guards underline the uniquely athletic appearance of the interior. All in all, TECHART offers a virtually unlimited degree of freedom when it comes to customising the interior – with the TECHART-typical precision.

TECHART Individualization for the new Porsche 911

With the official launch of the new Porsche 911 in December, TECHART offers first individualization options for the sports car. A refinement program for the exterior and interior as well as the TECHART light alloy forged wheels give the customer countless possibilities to give the car a unique character.

The TECHART styling packages for the exterior give the sporty and elegant design of the Porsche 911 a quite personal note. Trims, painted in custom colour or in carbon-fibre, make the sports car an individual piece. A clear statement of sportiness: the TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheel in 20- and 21-inch size, available colours are Sterling Silver and individual paint with five dynamically shaped twin-spokes. The particularly low weight and the significantly reduced unsprung masses directly result in an enhanced driving performance of the new Porsche 911.

The TECHART interior individualization offers a number of refining options to give the car the unique character of its driver: from the high-quality all-leather interior with decorative stitching to elegant styling optic packages made in carbon-fibre or in an individual colour. A maximum of driving pleasure plus quick shifting and perfect handling of the new Porsche 911 enable the TECHART 3-spoke sport steering wheels with the TECHART paddle shifters.

World Premiere at the Geneva Motor Show 2012 – in the exhibition halls near the lake of Geneva TECHART will present the Aerodynamic Kit I as well as the first power kit for the new Porsche 911.
