Out of the shadows of the recently concluded Frankfurt Auto Show, Porsche tuner TechArt has created a new individualization program for Porsche’s most iconic model, the 911.

Specifically, this program is for the 911 Carrera 4, and TechArt wasted little time giving it a comprehensive aerodynamic program that not only enhances the sports car’s appearance, but also improves its performance and handling credentials.

Not a lot of companies can tap into the soul of a Porsche vehicle quite like TechArt, so it’s no surprise that its new program for the legendary German sports car comes with the intricate knowledge of knowing what parts need to be improved on to ensure that the 911 Carrera 4 improves both its aesthetic appeal and overall performance credentials without compromising its status as one of the best sports cars in the world.

That might be a tough task for other tuners. But for TechArt, it’s pretty much a walk in the park.

Porsche 911 Carrera 4 by TecArt in Detail

The first order of business was to add the new TechArt components on the 911, including a new nose-lift system that adds 60 mm (2.36 inches) to the ground clearance at the front spoiler. Once the 911 hits speeds in excess of 60 km/h (37 mph), the system lowers itself automatically. From there, you can also make out a two-part front spoiler, which functions with the integrated splitter to decrease the lift on the front axis of the 911. Similarly, a new rear spoiler acts in creating additional downforce for the sports car, enabling it to stay on the ground even when it fully stretches its legs.

Look a little closer and you’ll also notice a pair of aero wings that were built into the front air inlets while side skirts have been positioned at the 911’s wing. Rounding out the exterior modifications is a set of Formula IV light-alloy wheel in a five-twin-spoke design with a choice of either 20- or 21-inch sizes.

The interior of the 911 was tricked out too, with new features like leather sports seats with decorative stitching, refined dashboard instruments with TechArt dials, a new three-spoke, multi-function sport steering wheel with paddle shifters, aluminum sport pedals, and illuminated aluminum door entry guards.

But the biggest highlight of this TechArt program is the installation of a new valve-controlled exhaust system, which delivers a more refined sporty aggression and can be controlled by via the sport button on the center console.

No performance details were given but with the extensive list of upgrades TechArt is offering, you really can’t go wrong getting this kit for your Porsche 911 Carrera 4.
