Russian tuner TOPCAR is providing a sneak preview of its upcoming carbon fiber body tailored to the Porsche 911 Turbo (991 generation).

In the world of supercars, every pound matters which is why automakers strive to make the cars as light as possible. Tuner’s are also taking a stab at putting cars on a diet and the latest example is TOPCAR with a carbon fiber body developed specifically for the Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S. The upcoming “Stinger GTR” package encompasses approximately 30 pieces made from carbon fiber with vacuum forming technology.

The tuner doesn’t say how much weight the car will lose once the carbon fiber package will be applied, but we estimate a diet of at least 220 pounds (100 kilograms). We remind you a base 911 Turbo facelift weighs 3,516 lbs (1,595 kg), while the beefier 911 Turbo S tips the scales at 3,527 lbs (1,600 kg).

TOPCAR will have the carbon fiber body kit on display at the beginning of March during the Geneva Motor Show. To make sure all the pieces are compatible with one another, the tuner will pre-assemble the kit before shipping it over to the authorized dealer.

As a final note, we remind you Vitesse AuDessus previewed last month a similar package for the Ferrari F12tdf and it said the prancing horse would lose close to 350 lbs (159 kg).
