TechArt’s Porsche 911 Targa Is Ready To Respond To 911 Calls
TechArt got its hands on the Porsche 911 Targa and turned it into a police car. Don’t expect it to enter actual police duty, though. This tuned and dressed-up 911 Targa is a project between TechArt and TUNE IT! SAFE!, and it serves as a sort of symbolism for a worthwhile tuning initiative. That’s because this special Porsche 911 Targa is a showcase that, according to TechArt and TUNE IT! SAFE!, "shows that appealing creative tuning does not have to be in conflict with legal requirements."
2021 The Porsche 911 Cabriolet-based Techart GTstreet R Cabriolet Is Drop-Dead Gorgeous!
Techart’s package for the 992 Porsche 911 Turbo S was one of the best ones we’ve seen for the car so far. It was a perfect mix of aesthetic and performance upgrades. Now, the tuner has come up with a kit for the 911 Turbo Cabriolet. The GTstreet R Cabriolet follows the same philosophy as the package for the standard turbo – make it even more aesthetically pleasing and pump up the power to make you go ‘Wow!’.
The Porsche 356 Speedster-Inspired Iconic Autobody 387 Is Actually A 987 Boxster In a Classic Suit
For better or worse, replicas have become a part of automotive culture. It’s certainly an alternative to a million-dollar dream car, even if the quality is often questionable. When it comes to classic cars, there are many that have achieved iconic status. Naturally, this is also reflected in their price. The classic Porsche market, in particular, is more or less a constant in this regard. With this in mind, U.K.-based company Total Headturners has built a very convincing 356 Speedster replica based on a more modern mid-engine Porsche, and we think it looks awesome.

This 1996 Porsche 993 911 Turbo Gemballa GTR 600 Redefines Bespoke Design
Porsche Gets Overly Sensitive, Protests Design of the Singer ACS
Since Singer Vehicle Design announced the ACS off-road 911 not that long ago, we have been sitting on our toes waiting for the final iteration to come out. As it turns out, we will have to show a little more bit of patience because there has been a hiccup related to the PORSCHE lettering stamped on the vehicle.
This Porsche Cayenne Turbo Safari From Flat Six Is a True Off-Road Performance Machine
You don’t have to take our word for it that the first-gen Porsche Cayenne is a darn good off-roader without any aftermarket bits and bobs attached to it. YouTube is your friend here.
However, imagine what would a 2004 Cayenne be able to pull off on rough terrain if someone prepared it for such challenges. Oh, wait, it happened, because Canada’s Flat Six has built a Cayenne that’s bordering into motorsport territory - at least as far as looks go.
This Porsche 356 Restomod on a 911 Chassis Is Exactly What Porsche Needs to Do
The year was 1948 when the first car to wear the Porsche logo left the assembly line in Gmund, Austria. Named the 356, the roadster was fitted with a 1.1-liter air-cooled flat-four engine borrowed from Volkswagen which cranked out about 35 horsepower.
The 356 is the car that paved the way for the 911 and in an interesting plot twist, it’s a 911 chassis that might bring to life the 356, albeit in restomod version.
2021 Porsche 911 Turbo S by Techart
TechArt has had the new 911 Turbo and Turbo S in its sights for a while now and it’s finally time for the Porsche-savvy tuner to unload the goodies.
The TechArt treatment for the Porsche 911 Turbo and 911 Turbo S is a comprehensive one and touches on almost every aspect, from exterior tweaks to a power bump and mechanical upgrades.
1968 Porsche 911 Syberia RS by H&R
Some might say that building, buying, and hooning a Safari 911 is a blasphemy. We digress. Porsche has such a solid connection with the world of rally racing (including Dakar and Monte Carlo back in the day) that a Safari-style Neunelfer feels as natural as breathing.
And while a lot of entities have been performing this sort of conversions on vintage 911s, we didn’t expect one such contraption to come from suspension specialist H&R. But it did, and it’s awesome.
2020 Porsche Taycan Turbo S by Prior Design
EVs don’t get a lot of attention from tuners and for good reasons. Few electric cars on the market can claim and back up dynamic driving and there’s no point in dressing up a Nissan Leaf in a Liberty Walk widebody kit, is there?
Now, Tesla’s cars are capable of delivering high levels of performance and we’ve seen some kits tailored to imbue aerodynamics and whatnot. But then the Porsche Taycan came, and we were wondering when will someone find a way to make it wider and meaner.
This Porsche 911 4S by Delta4x4 Looks Ready For Dakar
Let us refresh you memory on what off-road-ready 911 Carreras have surfaced on the internet so far. We’ll give you two examples: the RUF Rodeo and the Gemballa Avalanche 4x4. Yes, the latter is still a concept, but so is the 911 4S by Delta 4x4. However, Delta plans to build it using the 992 911 Carrera 4S as a platform and if that’s not making you drool, we don’t know what will.
2020 Porsche 911 Coupe And Cabrio By TechArt
TechArt’s love affair with Porsche started in 1987 and since then, the German tuner has been churning out all sorts of treatments aimed mostly at the 911 but also at Porsche’s other models, like the Panamera.
The company’s latest work is dedicated to the new 992-gen 911 Carrera S and Carrera 4S. It’s also compatible with both the coupé and the cabriolet, offering sound, design, as well as power upgrades. Let’s check it out.
You Can Now Have a Porsche Boxster Shooting Brake, But Is It Blasphemy?
Look. We’d take a wagon over a high-riding SUV any day of the week. Perhaps that’s why the undersigned loved the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo so much that he pledged to buy one someday.
The thing is, however, Porsche and station wagons don’t exactly go hand in hand. People went out of their minds when the carmaker introduced the Cayenne, so we doubt that an out-and-out family hauler built by Porsche would get the fans jumping for joy. That said, what about a Boxster-based shooting brake? Is that something you’d take out for a spin to the hypermarket and back?
The Interior of This Porsche 993 "Greenwich" By Gunther Werks is the Epitome of Perfection
Gunther Werks is back at it again. The crew that brought us the limited-edition $525,000 400R is working on another 993 model dubbed the Greenwich Commission. It’s not fully revealed yet, but Gunther Werks isn’t shying away from bumping our heart rates with a set of interior pictures.
Yes, we’re drooling. But as awesome as it might be, we expect the Greenwich Commission’s interior to be backed up by an exterior and an engine that are least on par when it comes to divine attention to detail and exquisite craftsmanship. Could that be just enough to give Singer a run for its money?
Bet You Never Thought You’d See a Porsche 911 GT3 That’s Powered By a Motorcycle Engine
The Porsche 911 has been the subject of many engine swaps over the years. In fact, the Neunelfer has seen its fair share of LS engines being dropped under its tail, but nobody ever thought of fitting a motorcycle engine inside the 911. Or, if they thought about it, they didn’t get to do it. Mind you, the 911 you’re about to see is not a real 911. We mean, it’s real, but it started out life as a toy. Yet somehow, someone crammed a KTM dirt bike motor under its hood and we can’t stop drooling.
Porsche Carrera GT "Recommissioned" by Porsche Classic
When a car is about to die its natural death, most car owners scrap it off and replace it with a new one. However, we enthusiasts try to do our best to bring it back to life instead of just disposing of something close to our hearts. Here is one such car lover who took his dying Porsche Carrera GT to Dr. Porsche Classic for a thorough restoration.
2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow by Edo Competition
Just in case it isn’t abundantly clear by now, the Porsche 911 Turbo S is a legend. It’s regarded as one of the most iconic models in history, as it has been ever since it was launched in the market 54 years ago. The sports car’s appeal is unlikely to lose its luster anytime soon, and it’s that particular timeless quality about it that has made the 911 such a popular model in the aftermarket tuning circle. The current-generation 911 has seen its fair share of programs from tuning heavyweights like TechArt, TopCar, and Gemballa. Now it’s edo competition’s turn to get in on the action and the German tuner didn’t disappoint with a 675-horsepower creation called the 911 Turbo S Blue Arrow.
It’s a fancy name for a fancy tuning program for a fancy sports car. It also happens to be potent beyond words, not to mention capable of achieving incredible amounts of speed and power that fits into the performance legacy of the Porsche 911. It’s fitting, too, that this program comes from edo competition, the same tuner that’s responsible for some of the most impressive tuning creations in history. Remember what it did to the Ferrari Enzo all those years ago? I don’t expect this creation for the 911 Turbo S to match that in power and performance, but I do know that it doesn’t need to. The Porsche 911 Turbo S is its own unicorn, and edo competition did it a solid by sprinkling its pixie dust all over it.

DMC Tuning Offers New Aero Kit for the 911 Range
What is it about the 911 that makes it so darn perfect to kit out? Maybe it’s the timeless design, a look that’s seen only the slightest revisions over the decades, offering up a blank slate for tuners to play with. Maybe it’s the car’s illustrious racing legacy, the kind of history that makes enormous GT-style aero not only appropriate, but attractive as well. Or maybe it’s the popularity – with so many examples on the road, standing out can be a priority to certain owners. Whatever the reason, German tuner DMC is offering a new aero kit for the Stuttgart superstar.
DMC was founded seven years ago, at which time its primary focus was on Lambos like the Diablo, Murcielago, Gallardo, and Aventador. Also popular in Hong Kong and the Middle East, DMC is now turning its attention to the 911.
The new kit is available for both the base 911 and the GT3 RS. The biggest addition is the gargantuan GT-style rear wing, which features carbon fiber end plates and matte black risers punched by the tuner’s trademark lion design. This piece comes with three angle settings – “City,” “Cruise,” and our favorite, “Insane” (that escalated quickly). The wing can be installed on the GT3 RS without additional mods, but regular-911 owners will need to swap their old deck lid for DMC’s carbon fiber unit.
The wing is complemented by new pieces for the front bumper, rear bumper, and side skirts as well. Each features more carbon fiber tastiness, with a jutting front splitter and a dramatic rear diffuser.
Unfortunately, this package looks like it’s all about style, and not necessarily performance. Which is fine if the look clicks with your aesthetic, but if you need wind-tunnel-tested and track-ready, then you should probably go somewhere else.
