Porsche SpeedArt TTR 500

German tuner SpeedArt has unveiled the first details of its latest project, known as the 997 TTR (Twin Turbo Racer).

Based on the 997 Carrera S, the TTR will be available with either 450 bhp or 500 bhp power upgrades, thanks to the fitment of two modified K24 blowers to the 3.8-liter flat-six engine. Also part of the TTR package is a new sports exhaust with turbo headers and sports cats, while a new intake system and intercooler ensures as much air as possible makes its way through the turbochargers and into the combustion chambers. To ensure the 997 copes with all the power, an upgraded clutch forms part of the package, as does a high performance oil cooler and modified ECU.

Externally the TTR comes in for a raft of modifications with a new front bumper and chin spoiler, new side skirts, a rear diffuser and new rear wing design, giving the car an altogether meaner look. SpeedArt also offers a performance brake upgrade. To get the most impressive design SpeedArt offers gullwing doors, too. For the transformation from Carrera S into TTR, which includes the fitment of 19- or 20-inch wheels in many different designs, SpeedArt charges about $60,000.
