TechArt revealed its proposal for the Porsche 911 Carrera T, a tuning package aimed at making the purist’s Carrera faster and more enjoyable.
When Porsche first announced the 911 Carrera T, many hoped that the dream for a budget GT3 was finally becoming a reality; however, the car itself proved to be only a slightly sharper and marginally faster Carrera.
TechArt’s Powerkit raises the twin-turbo 3.0-liter flat-six’s output from 365 hp (370 PS) to 425 hp (430 PS), a solid 60 hp O60 PS) gain. Similarly, peak torque is increased from 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) to 390 lb-ft (530Nm). These figures make TechArt’s Carrera T more powerful than a standard Carrera S.
The package also includes a new ‘Racing’ active exhaust system that provides a “deeper and more powerful boxer sound” and comes with four titanium tips dressed with a carbon-fiber jacket.
TechArt claims that their upgraded 911 Carrera T can do the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 4 seconds flat, down from the standard model’s 4.3 seconds. Top speed is 186 mph (300 km/h). The price of the upgrade is set at 8,000 euros (around $9,200 in current exchange rates).
TechArt also offers tuning packages for the Carrera, Carrera S and Carrera GTS models. The Carrera S can be upgraded to 473 hp (480 PS) and 427 lb-ft (580 Nm), while the Carrera GTS goes up to 503 hp (510 PS) and 464 lb-ft (630 Nm).
