2014 Porsche 911 Turbo by TechArt

Within months since introducing its first update for the all-new Porsche Macan crossover , German tuning house TechArt rolled out the full details for the 991-generation 911 Turbo package. Previewed in January 2014, the 911 Turbo TechArt returns at full throttle with a significant output increase to go with the revised body kit and the upgraded interior.

As we’ve come to expect from TechArt, the modifications not only give the 911 a unique look, but also enhance its horsepower and torque figures, which results in faster acceleration times and higher top speeds. Both the coupe and the convertible can be updated using the new package, which is aimed at customers looking to park a bespoke 911 Turbo in their driveway.

All told, TechArt’s 911 Turbo delivers more horsepower than a stock Turbo S, which makes us wonder what kind of monster the Germans will unleash with its upcoming tuning program for the range-topping 911. But before we get ahead of ourselves, let’s have a look at the non-S Turbo they’ve just introduced.

As with each Techart-modified Porsche, the 991-generation 911 Turbo benefits from an in-house body kit that enhances its appearance and aerodynamics. Up front, the bumper gets a new apron, while the rear comes with a new diffuser, a revised exhaust system, and a large, fixed wing. A set of body stripes are also available. In this case, it’s gray for the front bonnet and metallic green for the sides and the rear. The exterior package is rounded off by a set of five-spoke wheels and bright-green brake calipers.

The interior boasts new equipment of its own. The regular steering wheel has been replaced with a three-spoke, multifunctional sport unit, while the dashboard features new gauges. The sports seats are wrapped in leather with decorative stitching, as is the Sport Chrono device. Lastly, a set of aluminum pedals replace the standard items that come with the stock car.

The most important updates, however, lurk under the rear hood. The twin-turbo, 3.8-liter, flat-six engine now cranks out 580 horsepower and 583 pound-feet of torque thanks to Techart’s Power Kit TA 091/T1. That’s an increase of 60 ponies and 96 pound-feet over the 911 Turbo’s stock 520 horses and 487 pound-feet of twist.

The extra output comes with a significant drop in 0-to-60 mph sprint for both the coupe and the convertible. The coupe now needs only 2.9 seconds to reach the benchmark, while the convertible takes a flat three seconds. The standard models can accelerate from naught to 60 mph in 3.2 and 3.3 seconds, respectively. In addition, both Techart models can reach a top speed of 202 mph, 6-mph more when compared to the stock 911 Turbo.
