The new 991 gets some fresh style.
After the new Porsche 991 Carrera and Carrera S were released, TechArt was one of the first aftermarket tuners to develop a range of accessories for customers to individualize their sports car. All this before the 911 even hit showrooms around the world. Prior to the Geneva Motor Show, the German tuner is previewing their latest upgrades for the new Porsche 991.
The new TechArt Porsche 991 911 focuses on retaining much of the car’s original, distinct design. Instead of gaudy spoilers and flashy bodywork, the tuner has created subtle exterior elements that accentuate the smooth, sporty figure of the new 911. Styling packages are available in custom colors or carbon fiber along with stainless steel oval or round tailpipes.
Finishing off the exterior styling are two sets of lightweight alloy wheels in either 20- or 21-inch sizes. The classic five-spoke TechArt Formula wheels are available and provide greater heat dissipation for the braking system. Customers can also opt for the TechArt Formula III lightweight forged wheels in a five double-spoke design. The forged wheels are 15 percent lighter than standard light alloy wheels, resulting in a lower rotating mass at the wheel hub.
TechArt also focused on redesigning the interior. New leather, alcantara, trims, and custom stitching can be fitted in any color to suit customer tastes. The centerpiece of the interior is the TechArt three-spoke sports steering wheel with paddle shifters (for PDK models), that improves grip and control during spirited driving. TechArt also offers new aluminum foot rests, pedals, and side sills with illuminated TechArt logos. Rounding out the interior upgrades is a set of TechArt floor mats.
The TechArt Porsche 991 911 will make its world debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show. TechArt will also be showcasing their new Porsche 991 911 Aerodynamic Kit I at the show. Prices and availability have not been announced.
