(from TechArt Press
Release) World debut at the ESSEN-MOTOR-SHOW 2004: TechArt
Automobildesign (www.techart.de ) presents the sporty TechArt tuning
program for the new Porsche 911 Carrera. The various components are
calibrated to both current models – Carrera and Carrera S.
Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TechArt
aerodynamic-enhancement kit: 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 TechArt side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The
understated TechArt roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline.
TechArt also developed a rear diffuser for the 997 models, which
extends the rear apron downward and provides a dramatic backdrop for
the two oval-shaped twin tailpipes of the TechArt sport exhaust
Various TechArt rear spoilers, headlamp and mirror housings and rear
quarter bumpers are in the final stages of development.
TechArt also offers a TÜV-tested wheel and suspension program:
Owners of the new Porsche 911 Carrera or Carrera S can refine their
cars with striking, light-weight TechArt Formula five-spoke wheels
with 18-, 19- or 20-inch diameters.
The most exclusive version for the new Porsche features new
one-piece TechArt Formula light-alloy wheels in size 8.5Jx20 in
front and in size 11Jx20 on the rear axle. TechArt recommends
ContiSportContact 2 Vmax tires in sizes 235/30 ZR 20 and 305/25 ZR
20 for mounting on these wheels.
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 some 25
millimeters. It culminates in the TechArt Vario sport suspension
that was developed in cooperation with Bilstein. Contrary to
conventional coil-over suspensions this innovative solution not only
offers the ability to lower the ride-height on front and rear axle
individually by up to some 35 millimeters; the TechArt Vario sport
suspension also features sport shocks with adjustable bound and
rebound. This allows the suspension set-up to be adjusted to
individual driver’s preferences and to the predominant use of the
car – on public roads or on the racetrack.
For the 997 model series TechArt also offers sport sway bars, a dome
cross-brace, and a high-performance brake system with eight-piston
aluminum fixed calipers and 365- and 380-millimeter brake discs.
While performance tuning for both 997 engines 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, a throttle-controlled sport exhaust
system and a complete high-performance exhaust system with
high-performance manifold, sport catalysts and rear muffler.
