Legendary for 20 years. TECHART presents the individually manufactured GTstreet R super sports car, limited to 87 units, based on the Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models. Since its premiere in 2001, and still world-famous for it today, the TECHART GTstreet concept has united two worlds: unrestricted suitability for everyday use and uncompromising circuit performance. The goal: to make the perfect even better. The maxim: sharper and more emotional, without compromising function and individuality. The experience: More than 30 years of know-how of the TECHART development team. The result: an icon. Unique. And extremely powerful.
TECHART GTstreet R. Extreme, united.
Since the introduction of the GTstreet based on the Porsche 996 Turbo twenty years ago, the GTstreet concept has stood for the ultimate symbiosis of racing performance and the maximum expression of personality without having to forego comfort. A real GT that captivates performance enthusiasts and offers an incomparable driving experience. "Since 1987, TECHART customers around the world have an almost unlimited range of options for customizing and refining their Porsche vehicles. Based on our founding year, the GTstreet R program will be limited to 87 copies. ”Tobias Beyer, Managing Director of TECHART Automobildesign GmbH.
Consistent lightweight construction and optimized aerodynamics characterize the impressive exterior of the TECHART GTstreet R. An expressive carbon fiber rear wing in GT look as a homage to past decades sits above the motorsport-inspired rear. Another highlight: the new TECHART aero rings made of carbon.
In addition to the GTstreet R package, which is limited to 87 units - consisting of an aerodynamic package, TECHART sports exhaust system and TECHART Formula VI forged wheels - further performance and interior upgrades are available for the 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S models. All components are developed and manufactured according to the high TECHART quality requirements. The GTstreet R program is available from EUR 73.000 plus VAT - can be ordered immediately.
The achievement: a declaration of war. Unleashed at the push of a button. Up to 588 kW (800 PS) drive the new TECHART GTstreet R with an impressive peak torque of 950 Newton meters. The top speed is 350 km / h. It is setting new standards in its segment. Adrenaline kick guaranteed - "Engineered in Germany".
The interior is refined with carbon and a mix of Alcantara®, leather and heritage fabrics, inspired by traditional motorsport materials, and underlines the high standards of individuality and sportiness. TECHART interior manufacture leaves nothing to be desired by the customer.
The promise: a TECHART GTstreet R, tailor-made for turbo owners and sports car fans. An optional clubsport package with further upgrades for circuit use will also follow. The almost endless selection of personalization options can now be experienced in the TECHART 3D configurator: configurator.techart.de.
Spectacular lightweight carbon construction, improved aerodynamics.
Increased contact pressure on the rear axle, reduced lift on the front axle: the unique aerodynamic package made of carbon fiber, with an air duct optimized in the wind tunnel, ensures higher cornering speeds and balanced driving behavior. Overall, the aerodynamics package generates four times more downforce on the rear axle and 140% less lift on the front axle at a speed of 45 km / h compared to the series vehicle measured by TECHART. In addition, the air throughput has been significantly increased all round thanks to larger air inlets. The active aerodynamics of the basic model with variable front and rear spoiler is retained even with the TECHART GTstreet R aerodynamic package.
Optimized aerial image: the concise front apron with V-shaped shaft division shows a reinterpretation of the design language typical of GTstreet. Large air inlets ensure an optimal flow of air to the front cooler. Carbon fiber components painted and in visible carbon, a front slot cover with TECHART lettering and an accentuating pinstripe characterize the sporty, lightweight character of the front and offer Turbo owners a wide variety of personalization options. Large side fins complete the GT design.
Uncompromising: the new carbon fiber front hood carries the unmistakable motorsport DNA to the outside world. The two tightly modeled tendons describe the typical GTstreet look. Air outlets in the front area of the carbon fiber hood also underline the technical demands of the GTstreet R aerodynamic package, as the cooler air is drawn out of the middle duct of the front apron.
Strikingly modeled carbon fiber fenders in conjunction with the wheel arch extensions - both components also made of carbon - create an athletic appearance. Compared to the series vehicle, the newly designed wheel arch ventilation lamellas provide additional ventilation for the brake system. The two-part side skirts with a floating-looking insert in carbon fiber and an accentuated wheel house fin visually connect the front and rear fender flares. At the same time, the newly shaped, side air inlet of the rear fenders emphasizes the motorsport lightweight construction program.
The impressive rear view of the TECHART GTstreet R makes the hearts of racing enthusiasts beat faster. A carbon fiber wing in the iconic GT design with side air inlets sits above the dynamic rear end. A roof spoiler directs the air precisely onto the wide rear spoiler with an integrated and active wing profile. This ensures optimal downforce on the racetrack in every driving situation. The combination of the rear spoiler with side air inlets and the newly formed carbon trunk lid grille supplies the powerful engine with a sufficient amount of fresh air.
The powerful design of the rear clearly cites the racing world and presents itself sharply and precisely. A combination of contrasting colored surfaces as well as accentuated elements and details of the dynamic rear apron offers further customization options, while the clearly pronounced diffuser frames the centrally positioned tailpipes of the sports exhaust system. Under the hood, the new TECHART engine optics package in carbon fiber with a metal badge enhances the engine compartment.
Challenge: Track-Day-Performance with up to 588 kW (800 PS) and 950 Newton meters.
With two impressive performance upgrades, the TECHART GTstreet R embodies its performance focus in a unique way with maximum everyday suitability - for unforgettable driving experiences on the racetrack and on the road.
The TECHART performance upgrade TA092 / T1.1 with TECHTRONIC engine control injects the 911 Turbo S with an additional 44 kW (60 PS) and increases the total output to 522 kW (710 PS). The maximum torque generates an additional 100 Newton meters and thus a total torque of 900 Newton meters. The installation of this increase in performance takes place within a short time by authorized TECHART sales partners, without interfering with the standard control software.
The 911 Turbo S is trimmed for maximum performance with the most powerful TECHART power upgrade TA092 / T2.1 to date. New and improved turbochargers in connection with coordinated software for the engine management and the transmission control unit ensure maximum performance on the road and on the racetrack. Up to 588 kW (800 PS) and 950 Newton meters of torque are available at the push of a button. New top speed: 350 km / h.
Goosebumps inevitable: a two-pipe, hand-welded sports exhaust system was developed for the sporty, emotional soundscape, which thanks to the flap control covers a wide range of acoustics between the open and closed setting. The stainless steel sports exhaust system is an integral part of the GTstreet R package.
In terms of driving dynamics, TECHART offers two upgrade options with lowering and coil springs. The vehicle level is lowered by 25 mm with the sport spring set and guarantees a sportier driving experience compared to the standard turbo, while with the new coilover kit, a lowering in the range from 15 mm to 25 mm is adjustable. Another performance suspension will be adjustable to racing level and will be developed with the upcoming Clubsport package.
Form and function united: the forged TECHART Formula VI Race central locking wheel with aero rings made of carbon fiber.
Less drag, more racing style: new to the TECHART portfolio are the aero rings specially developed for the Formula VI Race forged wheel - made entirely of carbon fiber. Recessed segments and an inwardly shaped brim show a spectacularly designed upgrade for the Formula VI Race wheel design. The carbon component in a sandwich structure with a foam core is significantly lighter than a comparable full carbon fiber component due to a reduced resin content. The tests in the wind tunnel also confirm a lower air resistance compared to the rim without aero rings. Black, hot-burnished stainless steel screws fix the aero rings in the thread of the Formula VI Race forged wheel. The aero rings are available in matt or glossy carbon fiber and painted in the color of your choice.
The rim and tire dimensions have grown with the wide GTstreet R aerodynamics package and offer better steering behavior with a track that is 30 mm wider on the front axle. The light alloy wheel is available in 20- and 21-inch with central locking as well as in its own variant with and without aero rings.
TECHART offers its customers numerous other options for personalization with designs in single or multi-colored paintwork and, on request, with an additional gloss-turned face. The new TECHART Formula VI forged wheels have tires of 265/35 ZR20 on the front axle and 325/30 ZR21 on the rear axle. TECHART recommends the Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires for maximum circuit performance on track days and the Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires for an impressive driving experience at a high-performance level as well as occasional use on the racetrack. Regardless of the installed brake system, TECHART can customize the brake caliper color with a high-temperature-resistant coating on request.
Unlimited individuality: TECHART interior with the finest heritage fabrics, leather, Alcantara® and carbon.
The TECHART interior manufacturer is consistently continuing the sporty character of the GTstreet R program with an extensive carbon package in the interior. Refined with traditional heritage fabrics, the in-house saddlery in the cockpit cites the historic sports car era and brings it into the present in the GTstreet R - individually and handcrafted.
At the customer's request, TECHART can upgrade the interior to any extent with high-quality materials and a large selection of traditional fabrics and patterns as well as personal accents. This includes, for example, several carbon packages and full Alcantara® equipment for the seat system, door panels, dashboard, door sills and aluminum sports pedals.
A stylish detail is the leather perforation in the checkered flag design on the breast strips, the rear side panels and dashboard as well as a contrasting number 87 on the seat center section, which indicates the limitation of the TECHART GTstreet R package. In combination with a numbered badge, color-coordinated piping and decorative stitching in the cockpit as well as a fine GTstreet R embroidery in the headrest, the interior becomes a personal one-off.
Performance firmly under control: a true specialty of the TECHART master upholsterers is the handcrafted TECHART sports steering wheel. The GTstreet R sports steering wheel has a 5 mm center marking in a contrasting color, while the steering wheel rim is made of a leather-Alcantara® mix and the hand rests are perforated in the checkered flag design. The color of the decorative stitching and screws, the driving mode switch and all the covers and plastic parts of the steering wheel can also be individually coordinated. Standard functions of the basic steering wheel such as multifunction, shift paddles or steering wheel heating are retained. The upcoming clubsport package also includes interior options such as performance seats and a roll bar for maximum safety on racetracks.
