presents the sporty TECHART tuning program for the new
top-of-the-line model from Zuffenhausen.
Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TECHART
aerodynamic-enhancement kit which was developed in the wind tunnel.
The production front apron receives more visual emphasis from the
TECHART front spoiler. More than this, the spoiler reduces
aerodynamic lift, thus further improving directional stability at
The new TECHART rear spoiler optimizes the effect of the retractable
production rear spoiler. The understated TECHART roof spoiler
visually stretches the roofline.
TECHART side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The side
mirrors can be attractively upgraded using the TECHART mirror
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 also offers an extensive wheel and suspension program:
Owners of the new Porsche 911 Turbo can refine their car with
striking TECHART Formula five-spoke wheels with 19- or 20-inch
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. TECHART recommends ContiSportContact 3
tires in sizes 245/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20 for mounting on these
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 20
millimeters, 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 25 millimeters, 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.
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. A multi-stage performance tuning
program for the turbocharged 997 engine will follow within short
