The new Porsche 911 Turbo of the 997 model range has arrived at the dealers' showrooms and TECHART Automobildesign (Röntgenstrasse 47, D-71229 Leonberg-Höfingen, Germany, phone +49 / (0) 71 52 / 9 33 9-0, fax +49 / (0) 71 52 / 93 39 33, Internet www.techart.de ) presents the sporty TECHART tuning program for the new top-of-the-line model from Zuffenhausen.
Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TECHART aerodynamic-enhancement kit which was developed in the wind tunnel. The production front apron receives more visual emphasis from the TECHART front spoiler. More than this, the spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift, thus further improving directional stability at high speeds.
The new TECHART rear spoiler optimizes the effect of the retractable production rear spoiler. The understated TECHART roof spoiler visually stretches the roofline.
TECHART side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The side mirrors can be attractively upgraded using the TECHART mirror moldings.
TECHART also developed a rear diffuser for the Turbo, which extends the rear apron downward and provides a dramatic backdrop for the two oval-shaped twin tailpipes of the TECHART sport exhaust system.
TECHART also offers an extensive wheel and suspension program: Owners of the new Porsche 911 Turbo can refine their car wîth striking TECHART Formula five-spoke wheels wîth 19- or 20-inch diameters.
The most exclusive version for the new coupe features one-piece TECHART Formula light-alloy wheels in size 8.5Jx20 in front and in size 12Jx20 on the rear axle. TECHART recommends ContiSportContact 3 tires in sizes 245/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20 for mounting on these wheels.
Custom-calibrated to the TECHART tire/wheel combinations are the TECHART suspension solutions. The range of modifications starts wîth TECHART sport springs for a ride-height lowering of some 20 millimeters, sport sway bars and a dome cross-brace.
The TECHART VarioPlus coil-over suspension is available for the electronically adjustable PASM damper system of the new Turbo. This chassis offers not only an individually adjustable ride height by up to 25 millimeters, but also selectable ‘Normal' and ‘Sport' damper settings at the push of a button on the dashboard.
However, the settings are not limited to these presets. Both settings automatically firm up their damper rates during sporty driving. The result is an optimal symbiosis of excellent ride comfort during leisurely driving and agile, highly responsive handling during fast cornering.
