Techart improves the Porsche 911 Turbo

Article by Christian Andrei, on September 26, 2011

The TECHART GTStreet RS kit based on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS that was shown at the 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show boasts a zero to 100 km/h acceleration time of 2.8 seconds from its output of 700 hp and 900 Nm torque. But TECHART has recently presented another impressive power kit with over 700 hp.

The TA 097/T3 for the Porsche 911 Turbo offers outstanding acceleration figures and a new top speed for the super sports car.

Its 3.8-liter boxer engine comes with an extra 174 kW (200 hp) and 230 Nm torque compared to the series model to offer an output of 515 kW (700 hp) and a maximum torque of 880 Nm.

The super sports car runs from zero to 100 km/h in just 2.8 seconds, doing better than the power kit TA 097/T2 by a tenth. It can reach 200 km/h in 9.0 seconds and could hit a top speed of 352 km/h.

The engine conversion consists of the installation of the TECHART sport air filter, TECHART manifolds, the TECHART Turbo chargers VTG, the TECHART high performance intercoolers, and the TECHART engine styling package in carbonfiber.

These changes are ideally attuned to each other through the reprogrammed engine management.

Some hallmarks of the new Porsche 911 Turbo include its front apron with large cooling air intakes and bar-shaped LED direction indicators, as well as titanium-colored louvers in the side air intakes. The fog lamps have now been replaced by LED daytime driving lights. Porsche is now offering for the new Porsche 911 Turbo a set of optional dynamic bending lights that could swivel their angle up to 15 degrees, thereby improving the headlight module’s illumination of road bends.

Moreover, this double-lens projection system boasts of a sophisticated design that further augments the car’s progressive and stunning character. The new Porsche 911 Turbo is fitted with double-arm exterior mirrors that allow for better rear visibility and provide optimized aerodynamics. Interestingly, the mirror glass is now better protected from dirt. On the other hand, the rear end of the Porsche 911 Turbo features the classic split wing, newly designed rear LED lights and larger tailpipes.

The stylish exterior appearance of the new Porsche 911 Turbo is accentuated, as standard, by 19-inch Turbo II forged wheels in twin-tone looks featured. Drivers, meanwhile, are treated to a new generation of steering wheels, which design depends on the car’s variants. For instance, a Porsche 911 Turbo with manual transmission is provided with, as standard, a new three-spoke sports steering wheel in modified design.

Meanwhile, a new Porsche 911 Turbo specified with Porsche-Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK transmission) feature a steering wheel with its own shift buttons. Also available is an optional three-spoke sports steering wheel with gearshift paddles.
