The Porsche 911 is a classic piece of German engineering. That’s why it’s also an aftermarket favorite. In the year or so that the current generation has been around, we’ve seen numerous tuning programs built for the German supercar, including one from TechArt , Caractere Exclusive , 9ff , RUF , and Anibal Automotive Design .
Now, it appears that the latest aftermarket program for the 911 has arrived, courtesy of Russian tuner, TOPCAR.
Surely, when you have a vehicle as universally loved as the Porsche 991, you need to be extra careful in providing the right kind of aftermarket work that will keep the iconic look of the sports car. That’s what Topcar was able to do with the 911 Carrera Stinger.
There’s plenty of carbon fiber used in the program, which is hardly surprising considering that TOPCAR has been known to have quite a fondness for the exclusive material.
All in all, the 911 Stinger definitely speaks for itself, a testament to the kind of reputation TOPCAR has established in all the years that it’s been working on Porsche’s in the industry.

The Stinger is in the Building
As you can expect, the 911 Stinger comes loaded with a host of new aerodynamic components, most notable of which is the new front apron that has been designed to carry special airpaths for engine cooling.
In addition to the work done on the front apron, the 911 Stinger also gets the treat of larger front and rear wings, a carbon-fiber hood with its own specially designed scoops, a specially designed exhaust pipe, and a set of ADV.1 forged wheels.
For all the mods on the body of the Porsche 911, TOPCAR made sure to give the interior equal love. The Russian tuner accomplished that by dressing up the cabin with equal amounts of finely upholstered leather in a special shade of blue and purple to go with a generous helping of carbon fiber.
We’ve seen a lot of programs in the past, but we can’t recall the last time a seat structure was developed using carbon fiber the way the 911 Stinger has. And just to make sure that everybody knows to call this program "Stinger", TOPCAR decided to highlight its name on the door sills of the German sports car.
On top of all the aesthetic and aerodynamic work done on the 911, the Stinger program is also available with an ECU remap, new air filters, manifolds and a custom exhaust. TOPCAR didn’t elaborate on the performance increases nor did it offer a price for these optional performance upgrades.
The aesthetic kit is available on the 911 Carrera 4 and 4S models for a starting price of €14,280, which is about $18,600 based on current exchange rates.
