TechArt GTsport ‘1 Of 30’ Sends Off The Current Porsche 911 Turbo S

It won’t be long now before Porsche rolls out the new 992-generation 911 Turbo, taking what’s already a superlative performer to even further lengths. But before it does, one of the top tuners in the business is sending the current model off in style.

The TechArt “GTsport 1 of 30” edition is based on the outgoing 991.2 Turbo S, but packs a host of performance and cosmetic upgrades to take it even further. Where the Turbo S in stock form packs 580 horsepower (432 kW) and 553 lb-ft (750 Nm) of torque, TechArt’s Techtronic power kit ups those figures to 640 hp (477 kW) and 649 lb-ft (880 Nm). The result is a 0-62 time of 2.7 seconds (down from 2.9 seconds stock) and a top speed quoted at 338 km/h (210 mph), up from the standard 330/205.

TechArt also fitted its variable sport exhaust for better sound, capped by titanium finishers with carbon-fiber sleeves. The suspension’s also dropped by 30 mm (1.2 inches), the wheels replaced with TechArt’s own 20-inch Formula IV Race two-tone forged alloys, and the tires with Michelin Pilot Super Sport rubber.

There’s a full aero kit, of course – rendered in carbon fiber and including an air scoop on the rear deck. And it includes a new, smaller-diameter steering wheel. But as the name suggests, the tuner will only make 30 of these kits, each carrying a retail price of €29,991, including 19% VAT. That works out to roughly $35,000 at current exchange rates, and doesn’t include the $190,700 purchase price of the donor car. Now we can hardly wait to see what TechArt does with the new model once it’s out.

    I wonder why the car mags never test these very complete and very high end tuner versions of awesome cars? It’d be nice to read if there is measurable improvement and what the compromises might be.
