This Porsche 911 (992) Turbo S Is Dressed Purely In Brown Carbon Fiber
This Porsche 911 (992) Turbo S also costs twice as much as a resultby Isaac Atienza, on LISTEN 03:58
What you’re seeing here is a Porsche 911 (992) Turbo S whose skin is made entirely out of brown carbon fiber. It’s the first out of thirteen 911 Turbo S models that Russian tuner TopCar announced a year prior that it will be building.
Aptly named the Porsche 992 Stinger GTR Limited Carbon Edition, this tuned 911 Turbo S’s stock body panels have been swapped out in favor of carbon fiber.
No, we’re not just pertaining to the bumpers or side skirts, which is normally the case for aftermarket carbon fiber parts. This 911 Turbo S you’re seeing here is entirely dressed in carbon fiber panels from top to bottom and roof to rocker panel. The set includes 84 carbon fiber panels, which replace every single stock panel except the headlight housings and the window surrounds.
Each panel is made out of four layers of carbon fiber, and for this specific model, it’s been painted in a brown "chocolate" finish. Some of the carbon fiber parts of the vehicle have been left unpainted in order to create a sort-of two-tone look.
In total the set costs €100,000 (around $112,970), but that comes with unpainted carbon fiber. If you want yours painted such as this specific model we’re seeing here, this will set you back an additional €25,000 (around $28,244). There’s also a Kline exhaust to complete the look, which costs €13,935 (around $15,737) if you want this made out of Inconel—which is a specially-trademarked material that’s oxidation- and corrosion-resistant.
Finally, the exterior is finished off with a set of 21- and 22-inch center-lock wheels at the front and rear, respectively. These wheels are not yet being offered in TopCar’s parts catalog yet, but we won’t be surprised if will cost a hefty amount of money.
Lastly, the interior of this Porsche 911 Turbo S is upholstered in black and brown leather on the seats, dashboard, and doors. There are also numerous carbon fiber interior trims, because of course, it should. If the exterior is already finished in carbon fiber, why not do the same in the interior, right?
Based on how the interior looks like, it’s safe to say that the customer selected the "Advanced Interior Exclusive Options" package. That’s another €35,000 (around $39,533) added to the car’s total bill.
That brings the total cost of all these modifications to €173,935 (around $196,344) and this does not yet count those wheels that are not yet listed on TopCar’s website. For reference, the Porsche 911 Turbo S has a base price of $203,500 in the United States, which means these modifications could easily cost as much as the car itself once those wheels finally have a price.
As for its performance, the twin-turbo 3.8-liter six-cylinder boxer engine remains untouched, which means it still produces 641 horsepower and 590 pound-feet of torque. This drives all four wheels via an eight-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. A stock 911 Turbo S does the 0-62 mph (100 km/h) run in just 2.7 seconds, which is already ferociously quick to begin with.
The carbon fiber parts should theoretically provide the 911 Turbo S with better performance since these parts are lighter, though TopCar did not confirm if this offers any significant performance improvements.
