TechArt Appearance Package for the 911 Turbo

TechArt Appearance Package for the 911 Turbo

Source: TechArt | Published: September 6, 2006

The new Porsche 911 Turbo of the 997 model range has arrived at the dealers' showrooms and TechArt Automobildesign presents the sporty TechArt tuning program for the new top-of-the-line model.

The aerodynamic-enhancement kit, developed in the wind tunnel, is wrapped around the design motto "Sporty elegance". The production front apron receives more visual emphasis from the TechArt front spoiler. But that's not all, the spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift, thus further improving directional stability at high speeds.

The new TechArt rear spoiler optimizes the effect of the retractable production rear spoiler. The understated TechArt roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline.

The TechArt side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The side mirrors can be attractively upgraded using the TechArt mirror moldings.

TechArt also developed a rear diffuser for the Turbo, which extends the rear apron downward and provides a dramatic backdrop for the two oval-shaped twin tailpipes of the TechArt sport exhaust system.

TechArt can provide an extensive wheel and suspension program. Owners of the new Porsche 911 Turbo can refine their car with striking, light-weight TechArt Formula five-spoke wheels with 19- or 20-inch diameters.

The most exclusive version for the new coupe features one-piece TechArt Formula light-alloy wheels in size 8.5Jx20 in front and in size 12Jx20 on the rear axle, with 245/30 ZR20 and 325/25 ZR20 tires.

Custom-calibrated to the TechArt tire/wheel combinations are the TechArt suspension solutions. The range of modifications starts with TechArt sport springs for a ride-height lowering of about an inch, sport sway bars and a dome cross-brace.

The TechArt VarioPlus coil-over suspension is available for the electronically adjustable PASM damper system of the new Turbo. This chassis offers not only an individually adjustable ride height by up to one inch, but also selectable 'Normal' and 'Sport' damper settings at the push of a button on the dashboard.

However, the settings are not limited to these presets. Both settings automatically firm up their damper rates during sporty driving. The result is an optimal symbiosis of excellent ride comfort during leisurely driving and agile, highly responsive handling during fast cornering.

While performance tuning for the turbocharged 997 engine is still under development, TechArt already offers various versions of exhaust tuning. The product lineup includes oval-shaped dual tailpipes for the production exhaust system up to a throttle-controlled stainless steel sport exhaust system which optimizes performance and delivers a more exciting engine sound.

As a world-renowned specialist for exclusive interior creations TechArt Automobildesign also offers individual interiors for the latest 911 top-of-the-line version in all colors and designs. The program comprises exclusive TechArt Colorline fully leather interiors as well as sporty accessories.
