We’ve previously reported that German tuning house Techart was working on modifications for the 2012 Porsche 911, but at the time, the only thing the company had to show were some renderings and a promise of more. Now, the company got its hands on an actual 991-series 911, and has some photos of the finished project.
The Techart 911’s flat-six engines (3.4 liters for the Carrera and 3.8 liters for the Carrera S) haven’t received any forced induction or tuning packages…yet. Instead, Techart’s early modifications are strictly cosmetic, and surprisingly subtle. The biggest modification are the new wheels – available in either 20- or 21-inch sizes -- which allegedly help curb unsprung weight and improve brake cooling. For now, Techart shows a surprising amount of restraint when it comes to exterior baubles and bolt-ons; the only modifications we can sport are new logos in place of the Porsche crest, a small carbon fiber front splitter, and new exhaust tips in back.
Inside, the company allows buyers to order an all-leather interior to their taste. Alcantara-trimmed surfaces are optional, as is carbon fiber trim, and a specialized steering wheel for cars equipped with the PDK seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox.
This is likely just the beginning of Techart’s plans for the newest 911. The company will unveil its full Aerodynamic Kit I at the Geneva Motor Show, and a series of power upgrades will likely be rolled out shortly afterwards.
