Porsche 911 GT3 RS gets carbon fiber makeover from TechArt

Article by Andrew Christian, on April 26, 2016

German automobile tuner TechArt has been well-known for over 25 years to specialize in creating exceptional Porsche styling programs. TechArt has been working on different Porsche models ranging from 911s, Boxsters, Carrera GTs, Cayennes, Caymans and even Panameras.

Just recently, the tuning company has been up and about creating another masterpiece. It has been working on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, creating a new look and better features. For some, it is arguably the most potent among all sports cars that the Germany-based tuning company has ever created.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been dubbed as the “race car for the road.” It comes from the line of Porsche 911 Carrera RS, a racing lineage that is arguably one of the best that the German automaker has ever made. The 911 GT3 RS is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine capable of producing about 500 horsepower at 9,000 rpm. This performance car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and can reach a top speed of about 193 mph thanks to its lightning-fast seven-speed PDK transmission.

One thing that makes the 911 GT3 RS a must-have for car enthusiasts is its capability to hit the regular paved roads and not just the race track. Yes, you read that right. The 911 GT3 is a road-legal racer even with its naturally aspirated engines. The GT3 RS is lighter and lower than the other GT3s. It has superb handling and stupendous brakes, and interior and exterior that were modified to fit both race track and the boulevard. The 911 GT3 RS is perhaps the ultimate GT3 that has ever made it out of German production warehouses.

Now TechArt has modified some areas of the Porsche 911 GT3 RS to make it even more menacing on the road and the race track. Its body is made with weight-saving carbon fiber and magnesium and is even made lighter because of TechArt’s Carbon Sport Package. The freedom to choose and to personalize is what TechArt is truly great at and so customers are free to choose between a matte and a high-gloss finish for the carbon fiber parts. All these parts are manufactured in house to assure quality. There is also a range of colors that one can choose to further personalize their GT3 RS.

TechArt also provides individual parts or complete packages for the restyling of GT3 RS. These include the front spoiler, wheel arch air outlet louvers, side skirts, side air intakes, side mirrors, roof spoiler, rear wing panels and rear diffusor. The steering wheel and sports seats can also be upgraded so that it will have a carbon-fiber trim.

TechArt fully understands the needs of their customers and provides a service that will surely satisfy their customers. Its newest masterpiece, the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, will surely be a big hit especially to those who want to stand out from the crowd. It will surely make heads turn and eyes pop as it hits the streets and race track.
