The TECHART Program for the Porsche 911 will make its debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. The developed TECHART exterior design for the Carrera and Carrera S models lends an elegant look that has a sporty design, which is immediately evident on its front end. This two-part TECHART front spoiler has an integrated splitter that perfectly complements the sports car’s design.
It also enables the front to sit closer to the ground. Furthermore, two Aero Wings that are incorporated into the front air inlet vents, give the car a new and dynamic shaft outline. The rear of the Porsche 911 is where TECHART makes a statement with its fixed rear spoiler that gets a stunning trailing edge and an integrated third brake light. This blends into the roof line and reflects the overall sporty impression from all angles.
This package also offers the TECHART rear diffusor and the TECHART side skirts on the wing. The front headlights have subtle trim panels. It also has side mirror panels to enhance its styling. The Porsche 911 combines its impressive look with a similarly appealing acoustic.
The new TECHART exhaust system comes with valve control including EC-type approval and dual oval tubes. TECHART offers a distinctive design for its exterior, which includes the classic and stylish TECHART Formula 5-spoke light alloy wheel in 20- and 21-inch sizes for the new Carrera and Carrera S. The TECHART Formula III forged wheel with five dynamically designed double spokes is offered in 20 and 21-inch sizes.
When compared to a cast wheel, the set used by TECHART has a weight advantage of as high as 15%. The connected reduction in unsprung mass also offers a instant boost in driving dynamics. Its interior comes with a lineup of the best materials, trendy color combinations and several modification options. With these, customers could add whatever customizations they want.
At the Geneva Motor Show, TECHART will bring an exhibition display car that has a high quality modified interior in the best black leather and alcantara. Its interior stitching is coordinated with the vehicle color and its matt-painted interior parts come in racing yellow and black.
It also gets a carbon fibre trim that reflects the sporting nature of the vehicle inside too. It is equipped with the ergonomically shaped TECHART 3-spoke sports steering wheel with the fully integrated TECHART paddle shifters for more precision and for shifting to be simple and fast.
Porsche 911 Carrera features a stylistic evolution which is apparent in every angle. When you look at it from the side, you will see new styling, as well as larger alloy wheels and a more convex windscreen. These contribute to the car’s jauntier character. And, as is typical of the revised and wider front end are the new headlights and larger side air intakes. The wider, variably extending rear spoiler emphasizes the 911 Carrera models' higher-quality power output. Also, together with other aerodynamic optimizations, the spoiler ensures a significantly lower lift and at the same time retains equally good cd value. Completing the car’s rear profile are LED rear lights that have been redesigned.
Moreover, the new 911 Carrera has set new standards in intelligent performance. It boasts an innovative aluminium-steel lightweight body that is combined with a list of new functions and components and equally delivers efficiency and driving dynamics.
What’s more, the new Porsche 911 Carrera is the world’s first passenger car to feature as standard a 7-speed manual transmission. This is based on the optional 7-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) module. The first six gears’ close ratio gives you excellent acceleration capability, with the 7th gear's quasi overdrive qualities offering more scope for fuel economy.
The new 911 Carrera is also the first Porsche sports car to be equipped with auto start/stop function. This auto start/stop function can save you up to 0.6 liters per 100 km based on the NEDC - New European Driving Cycle. This function is paired with both manual transmission and the PDK as standard. Furthermore, the on-board electrical system recuperation and the engine/transmission joint thermal management system both help reduce the car’s fuel consumption by 0.35 l/100 km. The car’s new cooling design also manages without ventilation openings in its underbody, thus affording aerodynamic advantages that benefit performance.
