TechArt’s latest take on the Porsche 911 Turbo S Comes in the form of the 800 Horsepower GT Street Rby Dim Angelov, on LISTEN 03:38
It was only a matter of time before TechArt get their hands on the Porsche 992 Turbo S. The 911 Turbo has been known to wipe the floor with much more expensive cars and now, Turbo S owners will have the opportunity to order the TechArt package, which turns the 911 Turbo S into the GT Street R. As always, the good people at TechArt have touched both the aesthetics and the performance of the car and, as expected, the results are epic.

Exterior Enhancements the TechArt Way
The most obvious changes are to the exterior of the 911 where we find a not-so-subtle carbon-fiber body kit. In typical TechArt fashion, the kit isn’t just for show, as it produces four times more downforce on the rear axle. Also important is the front lift, which has now been reduced by 45 percent. The body kit consists of flared fenders, two-piece side skirts, a bespoke diffuser, roof spoiler, and a big rear wing, slightly reminiscent of something that you might see on an RWB Porsche.
It wouldn’t be a complete makeover without new wheels. The GT Street R features all-carbon-fiber wheels, which are 265/35ZR20 in the front and 325/30ZR21 in the rear. TechArt recommends you use Michelin Pilot Sport 4S for daily use and Pilot Sport Cup 2 if you plan to hit the track more often.
TechArt Performance At Its Finest
Performance-wise, the TechArt treatment brings upgraded turbochargers, a new active sports exhaust, and a bespoke software upgrade for the engine and transmission control units.
The end result is 800 horsepower and 700 pound-feet (950 Nm), which is a 150 horsepower and 110 pound-feet (150 Nm) gain over the standard 911 Turbo S
. The top speed also climbed up to 217 mph (350 km/h) from 205 mph (330 km/h) and the 0 to 60 mph (97 km/h) time is expected to be slightly better than the 2.5-second figure of the stock car.
The GT Street R also benefits from an adjustable coil-over suspension, which can be set from 0.59 inches (15.0 mm) to 0.98 inches (25.0 mm). A fully adjustable suspension kit is also in development, which will be part of the Club Sport package.
TechArt Interior Enhancements
The interior has also been touched and leather, Alcantara, carbon fiber, as well as Porsche-exclusive fabrics and textures, like the checkered flag motives on the seats. Clients can choose between a few different carbon-fiber packages, as well as a full Alcantara finish for the seats, door panels, door sills, and dashboard. You also get the obligatory for every high-performance car contrast stitching on the steering wheel’s 12 o’clock. Once the Club Sport package is ready, it will bring even more cool features to the ferocious 911.
Pricing & Final Thoughts
Price-wise, you’ll have to part with $87,000 if you want your 911 Turbo S to look and go like the TechArt GT Street R. This is dangerously close to the $101,200 sticker price of a base 992, but if you choose the TechArt treatment, you will have one of only 87 Porsche 992 Turbo S touched by the German tuning masters of TechArt.
