Putting on the finishing touches.
The 84th Geneva Motor Show is a little over a month away and the team at TechArt is putting on the final touches to its new Porsche 911 Turbo (991) upgrade program for the special event. The German company has already previewed what to expect before, but they’re releasing a few more details to keep us counting down the days until its official unveiling. Plus, they included some really good pictures of the new supercar.
Starting things off is the full TechArt aerodynamic package for the new 911 Turbo. The new proportions of the 991-generation model were taken into account and emphasized by the German designers, while also incorporating innovative technology such as Porsche’s active aerodynamics. Up front the lightweight carbon fiber and polyurethane RIM material constructs the front spoiler, air vents, aero wings, headlight surrounds, and decorative trim. The front spoiler attaches to the factory spoiler and can be extended or retracted. A TechArt control system allows for drivers to operate the active aerodynamic system under 120 km/h. At speeds over 120 km/h, the spoiler automatically extends, while the spoiler retracts when the 911 Turbo reduces speed to 80 km/h or slower.
Running towards the rear of the Porsche 911 Turbo is a new set of TechArt side skirts to calm airflow as it moves towards the rear wheels. A fixed rear spoiler and roof spoiler duo helps to generate downforce at high speeds for better stability. The lower diffuser trim integrates the new oval TechArt stainless steel sport tailpipes while an optional sport exhaust system with valve control is also in development.
The impressive twin-turbocharged 3.8-liter flat-six producing 520 horsepower and 487 lb-ft. of torque in the 991-generation 911 Turbo offers more than enough power to get up and go anywhere quickly. But, the team at TechArt has developed the Power Kit TA 091/T1 based on the TechArt Techtronic engine management system to boost output even more. Official details of the power update will be released at the 84th Geneva Motor Show in March.
The powerful styling that TechArt has created for the 911 Turbo continues with the chassis. The supercar becomes a bit quicker on its feet thanks to a new sport spring kit that reduces ride height for an optimum center of gravity. Customers can also opt for the TechArt noselift system to overcome obstacles. A number of wheels are available for the 911 Turbo including 21-inch lightweight five double-spoke Formula IV alloys, 21-inch Formula III forged alloys, 20-inch Formula light alloys, or the new center-locking TechArt light alloy wheel for those that seek even greater performance and style.
Inside the cockpit, customers are treated to a wealth of custom-tailored goodies that the TechArt in house saddlery team can install in almost every conceivable color. Illuminated door entry sills greet occupants before they sit in the custom-tailored sport seats with a range of stitching and material combinations. Giving the driver a greater feel for the machine they are piloting are new aluminum foot pedals, an ergonomic three-spoke multifunction steering wheel with paddle shifters, and styled gauges and instruments. Carbon fiber and leather are used throughout the dashboard including the Sport Chrono display.
TechArt will be showing off their new 991-generation Porsche 911 Turbo with a wide range of aerodynamic, chassis, engine, and interior options at the 84th Geneva Motor Show in March. Pricing has not been released.
