We all know that the 2012 Porsche 911 is going to be a bonafide seller when the car hits the market soon. But for a car to already have a tuning program waiting in the wings before it makes its world premiere just speaks as to how anticipated this brand-spankin’ new 911 really is.
It’s no surprise that the tuning firm that released this package is SpeedArt , one of the best Porsche aftermarket specialists in the world. As part of their ’SP91-R’ program, SpeedArt is preparing an extensive project that will include a new aerodynamic kit, a wheel upgrade, and a performance kit.
As part of the aero kit, SpeedArt is giving the new 911 a front chin spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, rear spoiler, and a set of 21" LSC-Forged wheels on the exterior. This all lead to minimal changes in the interior, with special leather and Alcantara trims being the only additions. There’s also a new suspension set-up which owners can have the option of using for street and track purposes.
As for the performance upgrade, SpeedArt will be installing a new power kit that bumps up the output of the 911’s 3.4L direct-injected flat-six engine from the standard 350 horsepower all the way up to 435 horsepower.
Obviously, there are no official photos of the car yet seeing as it’s only going to make its world debut in Frankfurt in a few weeks. For their part, SpeedArt is looking at introducing the SP91-R at the 2011 Essen Motor Show later this year.
That should give us plenty of time to hype up the first tuning program for the all-new Porsche 911.
UPDATE 1/17/12: SpeedArt’s program for the new Porsche 911 was previewed back in September and it’s only now that the tuning company has divulged the event where the sports car will be unveiled. Circle your calendars for this coming March because SpeedArt will be bringing their new 911 program to the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.
