TechArt 911 Turbo first pictures
TechArt, the German tuning house founded in 1987, have unveiled their long-awaited, new 991 Turbo modification kit ahead of the Essen Motor Show, alongside their latest Formula IV alloy wheels.
Based in Leonberg (just 3.5 miles away from rivals, Gemballa) TechArt’s 911 Turbo modification kit comprises of both exterior and interior changes to the Porsche base car.
One of the challenges facing TechArt with the new Porsche 911 Turbo was its increased size over the 997. TechArt’s designers needed to create a design that worked with the 991’s proportions while retaining the distinctive TechArt style.
Externally, the TechArt individualisation programme for the Porsche 911 Turbo combines the TechArt Front Spoiler 1, with their eponymous stationary Rear Spoiler 2.
Also combining to aide the car’s aerodynamics are a roof spoiler and rear diffuser trim. Further aesthetic features include bespoke side skirts, headlight trims, and sports tailpipes.
Stepping inside the car, one of the first things you will notice are the new illuminated, aluminium kick plates on the doorframe. These can be designed individually for each customer, adding that extra personal touch.
TechArt has reworked its three-spoke sports steering wheel, along with its new paddle shifters and aluminium sports pedals to create a high-end interior. Much of the interior can be customised with materials such as leather and carbon fibre.
Also unveiled were the new Formula IV light alloy wheels. Comprised of five twin spokes, the 21-inch wheels are available in standard or bespoke colours, as well as a two-tone finish.
As with their predecessors, TechArt plans to offer power kits for the new Porsche 911 Turbo as well. Make sure to keep checking Total911.com for more information.
