The new 911 GT3 is already a pretty good package with a 510 hp naturally-aspirated flat-six motor, a gigantic swan-neck rear wing, double-wishbone front suspension, and of course, a Nuerburgring-Nordschleife lap time of 6:59.927 minutes. Since the new RS versions are gonna take some more time, Techart has come up with a new GTstreet R kit that should satisfy the cravings of those who wanted more than the GT3.
The new GTstreet R is based on the 992 series 911 Turbo and Turbo S models, and not on the new GT3. However, it does get GT3-esque bonnet vents; the entire bonnet is made of carbon fibre. In fact, the entire car is adorned with carbon fibre aero elements which according to Techart, generates four times more downforce on the rear axle and 45% less lift on the front axle at 140 km/h (87 mph) compared to the series production model. While the rear wing is just as impressive as the one on the GT3, its design is inspired by those on the past Porsche racing models.
One of the key highlights of the package is ‘Formula VI’ forged wheels (20-inch front, 21-inch rear) with carbon fibre aero discs — intended to lower the drag. A version without aero discs is also available. As for suspension, there are two options: a set of sport springs that lower the ride height by 25 mm compared to the standard 911 Turbo; and a coilover kit where the ride height can be adjusted from 15 mm to 25 mm. A Clubsport Package will be offered at a later date, which comes with a fully adjustable performance suspension.
The cabin too features a generous application of carbon fibre, and of course, Alcantara. The yellow pinstriping from the exterior has been mimicked inside — on the floor mats and seats, which I think looks really tasteful. There’s a chequered flag theme going on in the cabin, which can be noticed not only on the seats but also on the dashboard, steering wheel and on the door cards as well. The seats feature perforated ’87’ on the centre section, indicating the limited number of kits Techart is planning to build. The upcoming Clubsport Package also includes a roll cage.
A performance upgrade named TA092/T1.1 extracts an additional 44 kW (60 metric hp) and 100 Nm (74 lb-ft) from the 3.8L twin-turbo flat-six, which brings the total to 522 kW (710 metric hp) and 900 Nm (664 lb-ft) compared to the Turbo S. For those who want even more, there’s another upgrade named TA092/T2.1, which includes new turbochargers in addition to a new ECU software, which take the output figures to 588 kW (800 metric hp) and 950 Nm (701 lb-ft). The new top speed in this case is 350 km/h (217 mph).
A two-pipe, hand-welded sports exhaust system with valve control rounds off the package.
As mentioned, Techart is building only 87 GTstreet R kits, with prices starting at EUR 73,000 plus VAT. Check out more photos here.
