The Porsche 911 Turbo is highly favoured by tuning companies for good reason. They like to recreate this stunning beauty and make it look even more special than it already is. The Turbo variant is one of the most sought-after automotive art canvases because of its potential to develop more power.
Russian tuning company TopCar is the latest team that decided to bring out the beauty and the beast out of the Porsche 911 Turbo S. Believed to be one of its most complicated projects yet, the tuned model was named the Stinger GTR. Recently, a better version was released – the Stinger GTR gen.2.
Clad in an aerodynamic body kit, the second generation Stinger GTR made its first appearance at the 2016 Moscow International Motor Show. It is one of TopCar’s most complex and sophisticated finish products, thus the prefix GTR. It is arguably one of the best tuning programs available for the 911 Turbo S and is certainly one of the most eye-catching variants of them all.
This second generation Stinger GTR inherits the all-wheel drive power of the 911 Turbo S but its 3.8-liter turbocharged flat-six engine can now produce a massive 750 horsepower, which is an additional 170 horses from its former 580 horses. That’s what pushes it to now be capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 2.6 seconds with a top speed of 217 mph.
The Stinger GTR gen.2 has also had an extreme makeover done on its body panels. Its front and rear bumpers, front fenders, side skirts and hood have been replaced. It also received new carbon elements on the doors, some expansion and splicing on the rear fenders and a new aerodynamic rear wing. Its front fenders, bumpers and side skirts have been replaced by carbon fiber versions; the front fenders now come with its own GT3 RS-style ducts while the front bumpers carry stabilizers in the middle and new side air ducts flanking either side both of which emphasizes the Stinger GTR’s new aggressive profile.
Also, the rear fenders were also enhanced so that it now has carboxylic linings. TopCar used its special technology to be able to seamlessly splice carbon element with a metal body. Also, its rear bumper now has additional side air ducts and a big sport diffuser.
This, plus the new rear wing, adds to the Stinger GTR’s aerodynamic makeup, improving on the car’s downforce and complementing the upgrade on its engine. Additionally, the new Stinger GTR comes with new brakes and a new exhaust system. The customer may even request to have a more advanced brake system.
Each element on its aerodynamic body kit is made from vacuum-formed carbon fiber which helps reduce the car’s weight as well as adds more flair to this already extreme sports car. For additional refinement and an improved driving quality, TopCar recommends installing the new ultra-light ADV.1 wheels. The tuning company also offers personalized upgrades on the interior which may vary depending on the customer’s taste (or specification) and budget.
There hasn’t been any official announcement with regards to pricing but due to the various options in personalizing attached to the kit, it may depend on how the customer wants to improve its 911 Turbo S.
