We give you photos and details of the new GTStreet R tuning kit from TechArt for the Porsche 911 Turbo facelift.
Engineers working at German firm TechArt have released an updated tuner package for the 2010 Porsche 911 Turbo facelift. The GTStreet R kit is not extraordinarily different from the 2008/9 package on the outside, with changes likely having to do with how the pieces fit on the facelifted model.
One of the main differences on the new show car is the carbon fiber-look of several parts. While the last model had a dull grey finish on the mirror caps, front and rear spoilers, these parts now have a glossy black honeycomb appearance. Also different are the LED daytime lights at the front, which now extend further while showing a different pattern. The TechArt Formula five-spoke light alloys are different, and are available in 19- and 20-inch versions.
Power figures stays constant, with the TA 097/T3.1 performance kit providing 660 PS (485 kW / 651 hp) and up to 860Nm (634 lb-ft) of torque. Despite the same figures, the 0-100 km/h sprint time went up 0.1 seconds to 3.5s. This could be because of the six-speed gearbox with sport clutch used instead of the previous use of a Tiptronic S transmission.
The Porsche 911 Turbo facelift with the TechArt GTStreet R package will be shown for the first time at the Geneva Motor Show tomorrow.
