TechArt Porsche 911 997 Turbo 2007

TECHART wants to start working on the new Porsche 911 Turbo of the 997 model range. The tuner has prepared a special aerodynamic kit developed in the wind tunnel. The modifications brought by TECHART refer to the production front apron and to the fact that the spoiler reduces the aerodynamic lift and so it improves directional stability at high speeds. Of course this is not all. The tuner also worked on the roof spoiler and the side mirrors can be upgraded using the TECHART mirror moldings. The rear diffuser created for the 911 Turbo extends the rear apron downward that changes a little the design of the twin tailpipes of the TECHART sport exhaust system. The list continues with an extensive wheel and suspension program. In any case, one thing is for sure: the tuner did its best to unite the ride comfort with easy handling during fast cornering and let us not forget about the safety features.

The new Porsche 911 Turbo of the 997 model range has arrived at the dealers showrooms and TECHART Automobildesign presents the sporty TECHART tuning program for the new top-of-the-line model from Zuffenhausen.

Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TECHART aerodynamic-enhancement kit which was developed in the wind tunnel. The production front apron receives more visual emphasis from the TECHART front spoiler. More than this, the spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift, thus further improving directional stability at high speeds.
The new TECHART rear spoiler optimizes the effect of the retractable production rear spoiler. The understated TECHART roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline.
TECHART side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The side mirrors can be attractively upgraded using the TECHART mirror moldings.
TECHART also developed a rear diffuser for the Turbo, which extends the rear apron downward and provides a dramatic backdrop for the two oval-shaped twin tailpipes of the TECHART sport exhaust system.

TECHART also offers an extensive wheel and suspension program: Owners of the new Porsche 911 Turbo can refine their car with striking TECHART Formula five-spoke wheels with 19- or 20-inch diameters.
The most exclusive version for the new coupe features one-piece TECHART Formula light-alloy 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.

Custom-calibrated to the TECHART tire/wheel combinations are the TECHART suspension solutions. The range of modifications starts with TECHART sport springs for a ride-height lowering of some 20 millimeters, sport sway bars and a dome cross-brace.

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.

TECHART already offers various versions of exhaust tuning. The product lineup includes oval-shaped dual tailpipes for the production exhaust system up to a throttle-controlled stainless steel sport exhaust system which optimizes performance and delivers a more exciting engine sound. A multi-stage performance tuning program for the turbocharged 997 engine will follow within short time.

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 program comprises exclusive TECHART fully leather interiors as well as sporty accessories: TECHART offers ergonomically shaped airbag sport steering wheels, foot pedals, foot rest and shift knob all made from aluminum as well as stainless-steel sill plates with TECHART logo.
