Tobias Beyer, Managing Director of TECHART Automobildesign GmbH
Lightweight components and optimized aerodynamics characterize the impressive exterior of the TECHART GTstreet R. An expressive carbon fiber GT look rear wing sits above the racing-inspired rear as an homage to past decades. Another highlight: the new TECHART aero discs made of carbon.
In addition to the limited GTstreet R package – consisting of an aerodynamic package, TECHART sports exhaust system and TECHART Formula VI forged wheels – further performance and interior upgrades are available for the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models. All components are developed and manufactured according to the high TECHART quality requirements. The GTstreet R kit is available from EUR 73,000 plus VAT and can be ordered as of now.
A powerhouse. Unleashed at the push of a button. Up to 588 kW (800 hp) launch the new TECHART GTstreet R forward with an impressive peak torque of 950 Newton meters and a top speed of 350 km/h – setting new standards in its segment. Adrenaline rush guaranteed – “Engineered in Germany”.
The interior is refined with carbon and a mix of Alcantara®, leather and heritage fabrics, inspired by traditional motorsport materials, and underlines the high standards of individuality and sportiness. The TECHART interior manufactory leaves no customer wish to be desired.
The promise: a TECHART GTstreet R, tailor-made for turbo owners and sportscar fans. An optional Clubsport Package with further upgrades for track day use will follow. The seemingly endless selection of personalization options can now be experienced in the TECHART 3D configurator: https://configurator.techart.de.
Spectacular carbon fiber aerokit with improved aerodynamics.
Increased downforce on the rear axle, reduced lift on the front axle: the unique lightweight aero package made of carbon fiber, with an air flow optimized in the wind tunnel, ensures higher cornering speeds and a well-balanced handling. Overall, the aerokit generates four times more downforce on the rear axle and 45% less lift on the front axle at a speed of 140 km/h compared to the series model measured by TECHART. In addition, the air throughput has been significantly increased all round thanks to larger air inlets. The active aerodynamics of the base model with variable front and rear spoiler are retained even with the TECHART GTstreet R aerodynamic package.
Optimized air flow: the front apron with V-shaped shaft division shows a reinterpretation of the typical GTstreet design language. Large air inlets ensure an improved air flow to the intercooler. Carbon fiber components painted and in visible carbon, a modern TECHART lettering and an accentuating pinstripe characterize the sporty, lightweight character of the front and offer Turbo owners a broad variety of personalization options. Large side fins complete the GT design.
Uncompromising: the new carbon fiber front lid shows the unmistakable racing DNA. The two sharply modeled tendons describe the typical GTstreet look. Air outlets in the front area of the carbon fiber hood also underline the functional focus of the GTstreet R aerodynamic package, as the air is drawn from the central duct of the front apron.
Striking lightweight fenders in conjunction with the wheel arch extensions – both components made of carbon – create an athletic appearance. Compared to the series vehicle, the newly designed wheel arch louvers provide additional ventilation for the brake system.
The two-piece side skirts with an insert made of carbon fiber and an accentuated fin visually connect the front and rear fender flares, while the newly shaped, side air intakes on the rear fenders emphasize the motorsport lightweight character.
The impressive rear view of the TECHART GTstreet R makes the hearts of racing enthusiasts beat faster. A carbon fiber wing in the iconic GT design with side air inlets sits above the dynamic rear end. A roof spoiler directs the air precisely onto the wide rear spoiler and its integrated and active wing profile. This ensures optimal downforce on the racetrack in every driving situation. The combination of the rear spoiler with side air inlets and the newly shaped carbon trunk lid grille supplies the powerful engine with a sufficient amount of fresh air.
The powerful design of the rear with sharp and precise lines clearly cites the racing world. A combination of contrasting colored surfaces as well as accentuated elements and details of the rear apron provides further individualization options. The clearly pronounced diffuser frames the centrally positioned tailpipes of the sports exhaust system.
Under the lid, the new TECHART engine styling kit in carbon fiber with a metal badge enhances the engine compartment.
Track day performance with up to 588 kW (800 hp) and 950 Newton meters.
With two impressive performance upgrades, the TECHART GTstreet R embodies its performance focus with maximum everyday suitability in a unique way – for an unforgettable driving experiences on the racetrack and on the road.
The TECHART performance upgrade TA092/T1.1 with the TECHTRONIC management injects the
911 Turbo S an additional 44 kW (60 hp) and increases the total output to 522 kW (710 hp). The maximum torque generates an additional 100 Newton meters and thus a total torque of 900 Newton meters. The installation of this powerkit is done by an authorized TECHART dealer, without interfering with the standard engine management software.
The 911 Turbo S is trimmed for maximum performance with the most powerful TECHART power upgrade TA092/T2.1 to date. New and improved turbochargers in connection with refined software for the engine management and the transmission control unit ensure maximum performance on the road and on the racetrack. Up to 588 kW (800 hp) and 950 Newton meters of torque are available at the push of a button. New top speed: 350 km/h.
Goosebumps inevitable: a two-pipe, hand-welded sports exhaust system was developed for the sporty and emotional soundscape. Thanks to the valve control, it covers a wide range of acoustics between the open and closed valve setting. The stainless steel sports exhaust system is an integral part of the GTstreet R package.
In terms of driving dynamics, TECHART offers two upgrade options with lowering and coil springs. The vehicle level is lowered by 25 mm with the sport spring set and guarantees a sportier driving experience compared to the standard 911 Turbo. With the new coilover kit, a lowering is adjustable in the range from 15 mm to 25 mm. An additional performance suspension will be fully adjustable and is currently developed with the upcoming Clubsport Package.
Form and function united: the forged TECHART Formula VI Race central locking wheel with carbon fiber aero discs.
Less air resistance, more racing style: new to the TECHART portfolio are the aero discs – developed for the Formula VI Race forged wheel – made entirely of carbon fiber. Recessed segments and an inwardly shaped brim show a spectacularly designed upgrade for the Formula VI Race wheel design. The carbon discs with a foam core are significantly lighter than a comparable full carbon fiber component due to a reduced amount of resin. The test in the wind tunnel also confirms a lower air resistance compared to the rim without aero discs. The aero discs are mounted to the Formula VI Race forged wheel with black, hot-burnished stainless steel screws. The aero discs are available in matt or glossy carbon fiber and painted in the color of choice.
The dimensions have grown with the wide GTstreet R aerodynamics package and offer better handling with a track that is 30 mm wider on the front axle. The light alloy wheel is available in 20- and 21-inch with a central lock as well as in its own variant with and without aero discs.
TECHART offers its customers numerous personalization options with one- or two-tone paint finishes and, on request, with a gloss-turned surface. The new TECHART Formula VI forged wheels have tires of 265/35 ZR20 on the front axle and 325/30 ZR21 on the rear axle. TECHART recommends the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for maximum performance on track days and the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for an impressive driving experience at a high-performance level as well as occasional use on the racetrack.
Regardless of the installed brake system, TECHART can customize the brake caliper color with a high-temperature-resistant coating on request.
Unlimited individuality: TECHART interior with the finest heritage fabrics, leather, Alcantara® and carbon fiber.
The TECHART interior manufactory is consistently continuing the sporty character of the GTstreet range with an extensive carbon package in the interior. Refined with traditional heritage fabrics, the in-house saddlery cites the historic sports car era in the GTstreet R cockpit and brings it into the present – individually and handcrafted.
At the customer’s wish, TECHART can upgrade the interior to any extent with high-quality materials and a large selection of traditional fabrics and patterns as well as personal accents. This includes, for example, several carbon packages and full Alcantara® equipment for the seats, door panels, dashboard, door sills and aluminum sports pedals.
A stylish detail is the leather perforation in the checkered flag design on the door panels and dashboard as well as the number 87 on the center seat section, highlighted in a contrasting color, which indicates the limitation of the TECHART GTstreet R package. In combination with a numbered badge, color-coordinated piping and decorative stitching in the cockpit as well as a fine GTstreet R embroidery in the headrest, the interior becomes a personal one-off.
Performance firmly under control: a true specialty of the TECHART master upholsterers is the handcrafted TECHART sports steering wheel. The GTstreet R sports steering wheel has a 5 mm straight ahead marker in a contrasting color, while the steering wheel rim is made of a leather-Alcantara® mix and the hand rests are perforated in the checkered flag design. The color of the decorative stitching and screws, the driving mode switch and all the covers and plastic parts of the steering wheel can also be individually chosen. Standard functions of the steering wheel such as multifunction, shift paddles or steering wheel heating are retained.
The upcoming Clubsport Package also includes interior options such as performance seats and a roll bar for maximum safety on racetracks.
