The Porsche 911 Turbo is arguably one of the world’s most sought-after and tuned sportscars on the planet, and when you talk about the companies that have made a name for themselves tuning the cars, TECHART is undoubtedly at the forefront. The cars they choose to tune see improvements to every single aspect, from the exterior looks to a bespoke interior and in many cases, some tasteful engine modifications that boost power to amazing levels while keeping the car as reliable as when it rolled off the Zuffenhausen production line. A while back we brought you the GTstreet R Flyweight, a complete upgrade package that saw some weight being shaved off while the power was bumped up to 597 kW and 950 Nm. This allowed the car to hit 100 km/h in just 2.5 seconds, 0-200 km/h in 7.5 seconds with a top speed of 350 km/h. With weight shaved off and a suspension change, this TECHART version of the 911 Turbo S is more of a hardcore driver’s car that’s more suited to track exploits and pushing the car to its limits. While the GTstreet R Flyweight appealed to a large number of speed enthusiasts, TECHART knew there was also a need for a different kind of conversion on the Turbo S, one that would have all the same amazing styling and upgrades, but that is more suited to the open road and offering up a smooth and comfortable drive - a tourer of sorts. Enter the TECHART GTstreet R Touring. This version also sees a host of visual and aero changes to the car with a comprehensive body kit, an expanded wheel choice and a choice of two different engine upgrade packages. The overall end result is just amazing, and of course, if we were to create one to land in the SXdrv garages, we’d most certainly opt for the higher power package. There’s no one that we personally know that would opt for less power for any reason because that’s just weird. Moar power baby!

For the GTstreet R Touring, there’s a new bodykit and new rear spoiler that draws inspiration from iconic Porsche models. The fixed ducktail-style rear spoiler not only pays homage to the brand's storied racing heritage but also enhances aerodynamic efficiency and stability, setting new benchmarks for performance and style. Check the pics below the video to see the amount of components that are added to the 911 to change everything about it. With a properly sorted exterior and aero, attention is turned to the customized interior. TECHART makes use of opulent leather and the finest heritage fabrics, and the quality of work carried out rivals that of Porsche itself. Every detail changed or added helps reflect the unique personality of its discerning owner. There’s no point in having a modified sportscar if it sounds like a regular showroom model, and so the GTstreet R Touring features a hand-welded masterpiece of an exhaust that will supply the right soundtrack for performance enthusiasts. Adding in an electronic valve means the soundtrack can be set for different applications. Owners can keep it closed to blend in or open it up all the way so that everyone in the immediate area can also enjoy that signature Porsche soundtrack. The GTstreet R Touring can be had with a choice of two TECHART engine powerkits. The first one, the TA092/T1.1, adds an extra 44 kW to the 911 Turbo S, taking the total power up to a strong 522 kW along with a 100 Nm increase that takes the torque to 900 Nm. The second option uses the TA092/T2.1 engine upgrade kit and this is the one to have. Power rises by a healthy 110 kW of power and 150 Nm of torque which means the top option for the GTstreet R Touring is rated at 589 kW and 950 Nm, good for a 0-100 km/h shunt in just 2.5 seconds with a top speed up at 350 km/h. The only downside to this current conversion is that it will be limited to just 25 units worldwide. We’ve seen some great TECHART stuff at RACE! In Kyalami, so if the stars align properly, maybe one of those 25 will end up right here in SA.

Take a look at the YouTube video showing off the awesomeness that is the Porsche 911 Turbo S after it's been through the more than capable hands of world-renowned aftermarket tuning house TECHART.
