The current Porsche 911 was unveiled in September 2011 and since then it impressed nearly everyone who has had the pleasure of driving it. German tuner KTW, on the other hand, sees a little untapped potential in the 991 Carrera S .
KTW updated the exterior and the interior look of the sports coupe, but it chose to leave the under-hood bits as they were from the factory. It’s not like the Carrera S really needs any more power, as it comes with a 3.8-liter, flat-six engine that puts down a nasty 400 horsepower and 325 pound-feet of torque.
The model revealed by KTW is draped in an elegant white hue combined with a number of black elements and an aggressive body kit developed in cooperation with TechArt. KTW also performed a series of updates on the inside and of course the car rides on a new set of wheels.

Porsche 991 Carrera S by KTW Tuning in Detail
This Carrera S comes with a body kit developed in cooperation with TechArt. It includes a revised front bumper, a carbon-fiber lip spoiler and larger air intakes.
The rear is updated with a new lip spoiler combined with a post-mounted spoiler and a new exhaust system with valve control for what’s sure to be a bad-ass exhaust note.
A set of optimized mirrors sit on the doors.
A set of sweet side skirts give the 991 Carrera a mean look.
The car rides on a set of 21-inch forged wheels in Formula III design.
On the inside, the 991 Carrera receives an updated steering wheel, new instruments, revised seats, an updated dashboard and a highly modified center console.
Rounding out the interior mods are new pedals, sweet red seat belts, and plenty of white accents strewn throughout to match up with the sleek exterior color.
The Porsche 911, the first presentation of which dates from the year 1963, i.e. meanwhile fifty (!) years ago, has indeed nothing lost of its myth. Thus it is not at all surprising that it is now available in its seventh generation, namely since September 2011 under the designation 991. But the KTW Tuning team from Hildesheim, Germany, shows that it is nevertheless possible to considerably optimize this nearly perfect bolide.
The rear-wheel driven Carrera S Type 991 with 3.8 liters six cylinder boxer engine offers 400 HP with 440 Nm of max torque already in serial state, being, only because of this fact, predestined to attract attention on elegant German promenades or on the world famous Croisette of Cannes likewise. Particularly since this white 911 successor has been equipped furthermore by a sophisticated body kit from the renowned Leonberg Porsche refiner TECHART. To mention all the tuning related details would go largely beyond the scope of this small article. Just let us pay attention at least to the modified car front, the optimized exterior mirrors, side skirts on both sides, the set of superb FORMULA III forged rims in 21 in. with powder coated in one’s desired color fringes together with the TECHART-own nose lift system (making the ordinary daily „hurdles“ lose their scare), the rear spoiler in combination with a top spoiler and the reshaped car tail together with the exhaust system now with valve control.
Also several parts of the interior, as the steering wheel, the board instruments, the seats, dashboard, center console etc. had to go through many modifications. One of the highlights are without any doubts the red safety belts, but also the pedals and feet mats have their own flair. As one can see, KTW has nothing skipped, which could hamper the bolide from the Swabian Zuffenhausen to have a worthy appearance, not to speak at the end about its absolute state to be unique.
