First revealed at the Geneva Auto Salon 2008, Porsche tuner TechArt have released full details and pricing for their GTstreet Cabriolet model.

Based on the new Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet, the package takes the already extraordinary 911 Turbo with its standard 480 hp (360 kW) and increases it to 630 hp (463 kW). This is achieved through a comprehensive TechArt TA 097/T3 engine upgrade which includes a sports air filter insert, carbon engine styling kit, carbon sports exhaust system, high performance intercooler, stainless steel exhaust manifold, T30 VTG turbocharger, high performance valve exhaust system with sports catalytic converter, black chrome tail pipes and Motronic 097/T3 fuel management system.

With the last component including the TechArt short shift kit with ball bearing gear cables, the GTstreet Cabriolet reaches a top speeds of 214mph (345 km/h), going from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) in just 3.6 sec (3.5s tipronic S).

Catering to form and function the GTstreet is fitted with an aerodynamics kit consisting of a front apron with an extendable carbon fibre splitter, which creates downforce over the front axle and provides ventilation to the radiator and front brakes, carbon fenders which are 10 mm wider than the series fender for a unique look, rear apron with integrated carbon diffuser which also adds downforce and integrates the black chrome tail pipes.

Inside the GTstreet leather upholstery is available in black and phantom grey with coloured decorative stitching in addition to a matching 3-spoke steering wheel with air bag. The optical package in red/phantom grey/carbon or matte black rounds off these additional extras.

The TechArt VarioPlus threaded chassis builds on the electronically adjustable PASM absorption system of the 911 Turbo. The possibility of lowering the vehicle up to 25 mm can be individually adjusted as can the absorption system, which can be changed from ‘normal’ to ‘sport’ with the press of a button.

Brakes receive TechArt’s 6-piston monobloc aluminum calipers up front and 4-pistons in the rear. TechArt Formula III forged one-piece wheels size 8.5Jx20 (front) with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Plus tyres in 245/30 ZR 20 and 12Jx20 (rear) with 315/25 ZR 20.

Price for the GTstreet Cabriolet starts at €255,000
