Porsche 911 Carrera T Boosted To 425HP, Thanks To TechArt’s New Upgrades

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).

    Those quad center exhausts are a bit much, but other than that this is lovely.

    $10k to gain 0.3 sec in 0-60mph and terminate your warranty as well as your engine longevity, more than likely.

    Actually, many GT3 owners love the Carrera T and have bought one for mountain and canyon carving, as well as other road driving. I’m among them and find the T to be the most special Carrera in many years. Too bad this article didn’t come close to giving it justice.
