When you talk about sports cars, Porsche ’s rear engine 911 Turbo with its wide tires and broad shoulders is easily one of the most desired automobiles on the planet. However, even if the turbocharged all wheel drive sports coupe is practically perfect straight from the factory, there are a few aftermarket tuners who beg to differ.
The most recent high performance application comes from the German power specialists at SpeedArt. Their new customization program for the 911 Turbo starts at the heart of the beast with a reprogrammed ECU and a less restrictive sports exhaust system that increases the maximum output of the boosted 3.8 Liter flat six to 580 HP and 568 lb-ft of torque, up from the standard 500 HP and 480 lb-ft of torque. The added horse power allows the modified 911 to sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.2 seconds and reach an unrestricted top speed of 202 MPH.
With a name like SpeedArt, the German tuner knows that there is no point in being able to accelerate like a rocket ship if you don’t look good doing it, so they upgrade the exterior of the 911 Turbo as well as the power unit. Their aero kit is inspired by the track ready 911 GT3 model. Featuring a host of sports inspired body mods made up of a more aggressive front apron, lower hanging side skirts and a new rear diffuser to complete the ground effects package. Mounted on the back of the SpeedArt Turbo are a pair of airfoils consisting of a rooftop spoiler and a more traditional rear wing. However the pièce de résistance are the color matching side mirrors, front lip, 20 inch rollers and side decals that let you know this is no ordinary 911.
