There’s nothing that compares to the feeling you experience when a sexy classic is in our midst, and there’s no doubt the Porsche 911 is one of the classiest of them all. So, to hear that TechArt has prepared an upgrade program for the latest Porsche 911 Turbo, well. this got me excited but also worried. There’s no messing about with this God of the pavement. so here’s what you’ll be able to enjoy at the Essen Motor Show.
On the outside, the Porsche package includes redesigned front and rear spoilers, as well as a rear diffuser and a roof-mounted spoiler. Of course, all of the new body parts are made from lightweight materials: fiber composites of carbon and polyurethane RIM. You can’t miss the added aero-optimized side skirts and a diffuser trim framed by stainless steel tailpipes featuring a dual oval tube design.
The way a Porsche 911 sounds is unique, so the new sport exhaust system – featuring valve control and a sound muffler kit – should definitely be considered an improvement. The 911 Turbo has also received 20- and 21-inch alloys offered with bi-color finishes and with a ceramic burnished glossy smooth look. Inside the cabin, TechArt prepared illuminated aluminum door entry guards and a three-spoke multi-functional sport steering wheel with paddle shifters – which I hate. The decorative stitches and carbon fiber appointments, foot rests and other similar luxurious bits and pieces will remind you’re inside a Porsche.
TechArt promises a power boost a.s.a.p. for the Porsche 911 Turbo, which in its standard configuration has a six-cylinder, direct-injection 3.8-liter turbo engine with 520 HP (383 kW), transferred to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch PDK. Sadly, at this time, TechArt provides only visual upgrades. As I was saying, there’s no messing about; so, I’m waiting on the technical mods to see what’s what!
