Porsche revealed the 911 Turbo 997 at the Essen Motor Show in 2006 and TechArt Tuning thought it was a good idea to build a kit for the model, improving its aerodynamics and the power as well. The new TechArt 911 Porsche is now one of the most powerful street-legal sports cars, being able to produce 580 horsepower and accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.46 seconds and also, reaching a top speed of 339 km/h. The modified 3.6-liter boxer engine sends the power to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission with TechArt gearshift travel storage and additional gearbox-oil cooling. For the interior, TechArt Automobildesign, a specialist for exclusive interior creations offers individual interiors for the latest 911 top-of-the-line version in all colors and designs. The retail price for the TechArt Porsche 911 Turbo is EUR 200.000. Well, we have to admit, the tuning company did a very good job.
World Debut at the ESSEN-MOTOR-SHOW 2006
TechArt Tuning for the new Porsche 911 Turbo
580 hp / 427 kW, 0 - 100 km/h in 3.46 Seconds, 339 km/h V/max
Maximum performance paired with optimized aerodynamics: TechArt Automobildesign turns the new Porsche 911 Turbo into one of the world's fastest and most powerful street-legal sports cars. 580 hp / 427 kW, 0 - 100 km/h in 3.46 seconds only and a maximum speed of 339 km/h are the most important performance figures of this car.
The 3.6 liter boxer engine was modified by TechArt in many details. Two bigger turbochargers contribute to the TechArt engine tuning just as the sports air filter and the stainless steel exhaust system with special manifolds and integrated high performance catalysts. All modifications get exactly tuned by the recalibrated ECU.
After the conversion the engine delivers 580 hp / 427 kW at 6,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 700 Nm at 4,850 rpm. Power transmission to all four wheels is made via a modified six-speed manual gearbox with TechArt gearshift travel shortage and additional gearbox-oil cooling. Of course the TechArt engine conversion is also available for cars with Tiptronic transmission.
The coupe tuned by TechArt is one of the world's fastest super sports cars: The two-seater coupe catapults from 0 - 100 km/h in 3.46 seconds. Maximum speed is 339 km/h.
These performance figures make greatest demands on perfectly balanced aerodynamics. The TechArt designers developed bodywork components in the wind tunnel which don't only give the 911 Turbo its distinctive look but especially optimal aerodynamic downforce and a drag coefficient reduced by 4 percent.
The TechArt front spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift by 15 percent. They also moulded a new wing profile for the retractable production rear spoiler which produces 20 percent extra downforce in conjunction with the TechArt rear diffuser. The understated TechArt roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline.
The TechArt side sills give the 911 top-of-the-line model a longer, sleeker look. The side mirrors can be attractively upgraded using the TechArt mirror moldings. The look is rounded out with moldings for the headlights.
Especially for the new Porsche 911 Turbo they developed the striking TechArt Formula five-spoke wheels in size 8.5Jx20 in front and in size 12Jx20 on the rear axle. TechArt recommends ContiSportContact 3 tires in sizes 245/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20 for mounting on these wheels.
The TechArt VarioPlus coil-over suspension is available for the electronically adjustable PASM damper system of the new Turbo. This chassis offers not only an individually adjustable ride height by up to 25 millimeters, but also selectable 'Normal' and 'Sport' damper settings at the push of a button on the dashboard.
However, the settings are not limited to these presets. Both settings automatically firm up their damper rates during sporty driving. The result is an optimal symbiosis of excellent ride comfort during leisurely driving and agile, highly responsive handling during fast cornering.
As a world-renowned specialist for exclusive interior creations TechArt Automobildesign also offers individual interiors for the latest 911 top-of-the-line version in all colors and designs.
The 580 hp / 427 kW Turbo was upgraded with an exclusive TechArt CarboBlack leather trim, white cockpit panels matching the car's outside color and further sporty accessories. They include an ergonomically shaped airbag sport steering wheel, foot pedals, foot rest and shift knob all made from aluminum as well as stainless-steel sill plates with TechArt logo.
