The ink isn’t completely dry on the 2012 Porsche 911, but as always, German tuning houses are gearing up to add flash and dash to the rear-engine sports car. First up is Techart, which has previewed a selection of interior and exterior modifications for 911 customers.
On the outside, buyers can specify their 911s with a flared hood, an angry-looking front fascia, aggressive side skirt, and a large fixed rear spoiler -- all of which Techart can paint to match the body color, finish in a custom color, or leave in a bare carbon fiber finish. Techart also offers a range of custom 20- and 21-inch aluminum alloy wheels, which reportedly reduce unsprung weight and -- better yet -- can be painted in any color you like.
Inside, Techart can tweak the 911’s interior in a multitude of ways. Want every surface trimmed in leather? Done. Need an infusion of carbon fiber? Just say the word. Desire trim pieces painted in hues that exist only in your imagination? Chances are it can be done, provided your wallet can handle the expense. Unique parts include a new three-spoke steering wheel, which also offers shift paddles for cars built with the seven-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission.
But what lurks underhood? That remains to be seen. Because the 911 hasn’t arrived in dealer showrooms quite yet, Techart hasn’t had a chance to finalize its mechanical upgrades to the car. For now, it’s content on issuing this teaser rendering, but expect the full package -- along with a power upgrade -- to debut at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in March.
