Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

If you are not satisfied by the powered delivered in your 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo S, 530 hp (390 kW) and an impressive 700 Newton-metres of torque (516 lb-ft), then you will be interested by the new Techart Power kit for the impressive sports car.

As of September, Techart customers will be able to purchase this power kit for the 911 Turbo S, and add an extra of 90 hp and 120 Nm of torque to their car. This means that the upgraded vehicle will deliver an astonishing 620 hp (456 kW) and a maximum torque of 820 Nm.

For those who don’t know, the standard car can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3.3 seconds while from standstill to 200 km/h in can sprint in 10.8 seconds. Top speed is 315 km/h or 195 mph.

With the Techart powerkit the 911 Turbo S can hit 100 km/h in just 2.9 seconds, 200 km/h in 9.3 seconds, while the top speed achieved is 333 km/h.

Priced at €10.840, the powerkit includes a Techart sport air filter, engine styling package in carbon fiber, manifold unit, exhaust system “sport”, two pressure sensors and engine management system 097/T2.1.

The “S” suffix in the 911 designation has been known to indicate a very sporty high-performance version of this already dynamic and athletic sports car.

It was in 1992 when the S suffix made its first appearance. That year, at the Geneva Motor Show, Porsche unveiled the 911 Turbo S of the 964 generation. Powered by a 381-hp turbocharged engine, the 911 Turbo S becomes the peak model among all versions of the 911 Turbo with 3.3-liter power unit. Technically, the very first 911 Turbo S was derived from the 911 Turbo piloted by Hurley Haywood in the 1991 Supercar Series.

Then, a road-going version of the 911 Turbo S was created, as distinguished through its side air intakes at the rear and its flatter rear wing. Thanks to a number of special modifications, the Porsche 911 Turbo S weighs around 180 kg (396 lbs) less than the "regular" Turbo. Only 86 examples were built.

As for power, the engine of the 911 Turbo S provided around 381 hp, allowing the high-performance version to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds and reach a top speed of 290 km/h (180 mph). This level of power was achieved by installing a modified camshaft and upgraded intake ducts while slightly increasing the charge pressure and optimizing ignition and injection system. If there was a downside to this 911 Turbo S, it is that it costs DEM295,000.

By 1993, the Porsche 911 Turbo S Le Mans GT -- built by the Racing Department in Weissach – was offered as a true racer for long-distance competitions based on GT regulations. Porsche sold the 911 Turbo S Le Mans GT to customer teams participating in the new GT class in long-distance events.

Being a pioneer in turbo technology, Porsche had the 911 Turbo S Le Mans GT powered by a biturbo 3.16-liter engine that delivers 474 hp while limited by air restrictor. Distinguishing this GT racing car from previous 911 racing cars was that fresh air flows through the outer edges of the rear wing. The 911 Turbo S Le Mans GT had its racing debut – piloted by Walter Rohrl, Hans-Joachim Stuck and Hurley Haywood – in the 12 Hours of Sebring, winning its class and finishing seventh overall in the C-class.

When the 993 generation of the 911 arrived, the Plant’s Exclusive Department built a Turbo S powered by a 450-hp engine. Sold starting August 1997 at a price of more than DEM300,000, this 911 Turbo S featured an Aerokit with a modified front and rear spoiler. It also sports side air intakes at the rear. Inside, this version features full leather and carbon. Only 345 examples of this 911 Turbo S were produced. American racer Jeff Zwart drove this new Porsche 911 Turbo S to a stellar victory at the legendary Pikes Peak International Hill Climb in Colorado in 1998.

Just before introducing the 997 generation of the 911, Porsche offered a Turbo S version of the 996 series in May 2004. This was a more potent version of the base model and even featured PCCB brakes as standard.
