One way to ensure that your brand-new Porsche 911 (a.k.a. 991) won't look like the one in your neighbor's driveway is to give TechArt a call. The famed German tuner has rolled out its version of the latest Carrera and Carrera S at the Geneva Motor Show and trust us, it won't be mistaken for anything from the factory in Stuttgart.

Up front, TechArt has fitted its own unique two-part spoiler with integrated splitter while more aggressive side skirts adorn the rocker panels. The rear has a new lower diffuser, wrapped around the TechArt exhaust, and a large fixed rear wing (complete with an integrated third brake light). Look more closely to notice the subtle trim panels on the exterior mirrors and front headlights. The wheels are lightweight forged 20- and 21-inch alloys with matching paint on their rims.

Inside the heavily modified cabin are even more drastic enhancements (let's say TechArt has gone over the top). Don't let the aluminum pedals be a distraction as you inspect the black Alcantara and high-grade leather covering nearly every square inch. Flirting with gaudy, the dark upholstery is contrasted by vehicle-color-coordinated stitching and painted trim splashed throughout. However, the icing on the cake is an insanely thick TechArt three-spoke sports steering wheel.

We donned our darkest shades and shot a full live gallery on the Geneva floor. Plus, you can also check out the detailed press release below the fold and a handful of official pictures below.

Ideal by definition - TECHART for the 911

An elegant appearance with a clear sporty design - simply unmistakable. Welcome to the premiere of the TECHART Program for the Porsche 911. The completely newly developed TECHART exterior design for the Carrera and Carrera S models will be officially presented as part of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in a few weeks.

From every angle: distinctively TECHART

One glance at the newly designed front end and you immediately recognise the sporty character of the vehicle. The two-part TECHART front spoiler with an integrated splitter fits perfectly into the design of the sports car and allows the front to sit even closer to the ground. In addition, two Aero Wings, which are integrated into the front air inlet vents, lend the car a new and dynamic shaft outline.

There is a clear TECHART statement on the rear of the Porsche 911: the fixed rear spoiler with a striking trailing edge and an integrated third brake light, which assimilates with the line of the roof and reflects the overall sporty impression from every angle. As your gaze continues downwards, the TECHART rear diffusor and the TECHART side skirts on the wing of the vehicle complete the exterior range. Subtle trim panels for the front headlights as well as side mirror panels provide further highlights that come with an assured sense of style.

Thanks to the new TECHART exhaust system with valve control including EC-type approval, as well as the dual oval tubes, the Porsche 911 combines its visual appearance with an impressive and attractive acoustic.

For unique exterior design, TECHART offers its customers the classic and elegant TECHART Formula 5-spoke light alloy wheel in 20- and 21-inch sizes for the new Carrera and Carrera S. Similarly, the TECHART Formula III forged wheel with five dynamically designed double spokes is available in 20 and 21-inch. This wheel offers a weight advantage of up to 15 % compared to a cast wheel and the connected reduction in unsprung mass contributes to an immediate increase in driving dynamics.

Individualisation without limits in the TECHART factory

For the interior of the sports car there is a range of the finest materials, stylish colour combinations and numerous modification options, giving the customer the chance to implement all of the customisations they want. The exhibition display car for the Geneva Motor Show features a high quality modified interior in the finest black leather and alcantara. The vehicle-colour-coordinated stitching combined with the matt-painted interior components in racing yellow and black, as well as the carbon fibre trim, uncompromisingly reflect the sporting nature of the vehicle in the interior too. The ergonomically shaped TECHART 3-spoke sports steering wheel with the perfectly integrated TECHART paddle shifters for a precise control, as well as simple and fast shifting, completes the dynamic TECHART appearance in the interior of the Porsche 911 Carrera S.

        You're not a Porsche person. It's cool. You wouldn't see the value in this car, but it's not a run of the mill 991 (if there is such a thing) and other Porsche people will get this.

      TechArt - Raping Porsches since 1987. Sheikh Hamza and his best pal Vladimir from Moskva are loving it.

      Tacky color scheme. I dont understand why car companies are always behind whats cool. They hung on to black interiors with red stitching way past when they were cool. Same with carbon fiber interior trim, And now we have these with color lined rims and vibrant stitching. I mean it was cool five years ago, but jeez what are their designers paid for if they are behind the consumers on whats stylish?

      The write-up encourages me to look more closely at it. The gallery says that it's not " my grandpa's Porche"!

        Oh well Mr Sekurity, the Porsche 911 offers top notch performance and looks already. So what exactly is the benefit for TechArt's classy customers? Let me try to give you the answer by quoting Frank Sinatra: "You've either got or you haven't got style...."

      Don't like bright color sport cars, they are police magnets! People who buy these bright yellow Porsches just want to call attention to themselves . I prefer to try and fly under the radar with black, dark blue, or silver.

      Very poor showing from the Porsche tuners, you'd think after all these years they would have got the look right with this one.

      I think they did a great job of highlighting the interior without adding junk or a pep boys look, which is what I uaually see when tuners do this much work. I'd go with red or something else but yellow works well as a show car. Very cool, personalizing a porsche to the hilt where all porsche bits are still there on the inside, dash and console, not exterior. Porsche should consider making bits like this an option on their cars, do they know about that idea? ;) But really why should scion be the only one?
