The German automobile tuner TechArt, which specializes in modifying premium sports cars especially Porsche, is now in its 30th year of service. Since the late 1980s, Techart has been an established name for an unmatched array of modification options at the most premium standards, and is also known for its undying passion in customizing roadsters—exclusively for the Porsche line up.
The tuning company was started in 1987 by Thomas Behringer and Matthias Krauss, with the main headquarters found in Leonberg, Germany. Techart is vastly considered as an independent car manufacturer and the company started out in Fellbach manufacturing premium interiors for different car models. Around that time period, Techart took a fancy to Porsche models, and successfully released its first ever body kit for Porsche 928 around 1987. Modifying something as fascinating as the Porsche 911 is considered a feat if done correctly, and only a few companies are willing to partake of this unforgiving task.
But a year after Porsche 928's modified body kit was released, an aero kit for the then current 964 model 911 was unveiled to the public eye. Techart's operation extended all throughout the 1990s and covered the divisions for sleek design and utmost performance in which the latter was released in 1995 with the C3 program on the 911 Carrera, which is built with a supercharge to produce an output of 462 hP.
The tuning company's fame rose to unchartered heights as it was involved in the Porsche GTP Racing Series. By securing an overall victory with its 911 GT3 creation at Hockenheim in 2000, it proved to the car enthusiasts globally that the tuning company is no pushover in regards to its notorious aerodynamic kits and power packages that delivers consistent performance roots.
Moreover, Techart continued to work its thing and keep creating modified Porsches to slay the streets everywhere it went. The tuner company rolled out an altered Porsche 911 to speed around the Nurburing motorsports complex with 7:39 seconds to spend. In the following years, a tweaked Cayenne Turbo rocked the Porsche's Nardo high speed test track by a whopping 200 miles per hour. Furthermore, the elder tuning company is not yet handing its crown over to the younger group of tuners.
With a sales network found in more than 30 countries worldwide, Techart is branded as the international elite modification king for Porsche models. Recently Techart is offering an array of products to the Porsche's line-up, previous and current models. But the Porsche 911 remains the bread and butter for the tuning company. The GTstreet R Cabriolet is the latest eye catcher for Techart, the unroofed 911 kin that produces pure 711 hP, sexy body lines and can accelerate beyond 200 mph.
Well, what's not to love? Modifying the already outstanding supercars are always a hit and miss in the global market. But looking back on the best of Techart's 30 years, with each year spent on producing and bringing the best of Porsches, we are one happy spectator. Keep rocking on, Techart.
