TechArt Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet

From TechArt press: 600 hp / 441 kW, 740 Nm, 0-200 km/h in 11.9 sec., Vmax 334 km/h: TechArt Automobildesign turns the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet into one of the world's fastest convertible cars. 

The TechArt TA 096/T3 tuning kit boosts power output of the water-cooled 3.6-liter flat six engine from standard 420 hp / 309 kW to 600 hp / 441 kW. The conversion comprises two larger turbochargers and intercoolers, special aluminum intake manifolds, a sport air filter and the TechArt stainless-steel exhaust system with integrated high-performance catalysts. Newly programmed engine electronics ensure that all modifications work together flawlessly.

The conversion not only benefits maximum power output: Peak torque grows from standard 560 Nm to 740 Nm at 4,600 rpm. Power is transferred to all four wheels via a custom high-performance clutch and a modified six-speed manual gearbox with TechArt shift travel reduction. 

Thus equipped the TechArt-tuned Porsche 911 Cabriolet is firmly among the world's fastest convertibles: The sprint from 0-100 km/h takes just 3.7 seconds. After just 11.9 seconds the car reaches 200 km/h. On the high-speed track in Nardo, Italy the Porsche reached a top speed of 334 km/h.

This kind of performance places the highest demands on aerodynamics. Using a wind tunnel the TechArt designers developed aerodynamic-enhancement components which not only produce optimal aerodynamic downforce but which also lend the Turbo Cabriolet an unmistakable appearance.
