New GTstreet R has been revealed by TechArt and let us tell you: this sportscar is a genuine spaceship based on Porsche 911 Turbo S, 911 Turbo. However, unlike its former version, this GTstreet R is way faster and more furious.
You can say from the very first look that this is no ordinary 911. The carbon fiber details make even the camouflaged prototype noticeable in any crowd. However, these carbon fiber details aren’t there for their beauty effects only. According to TechArt, they hugely reduce the front axle’s lift – 45% at 140 km/h – 87 mph, increase the downforce at the rear axle and help the airflow shift to the intercooler.
One of the most noticeable elements is the immense carbon fiber rear wing. There are big tailpipes on the stainless-steel exhaust system, alongside a valve control. The revised bumper comes finished in black, the same as the carbon fiber diffuser.
The air intakes got a new cover, while the splitter got visibly enhanced. Notice the bonnet that got redesigned and received inlets that look like those on the new 911 GT3. Another resemblance is found on the front fenders with their GT3 RS alike gills.
The 20-inch front and 21-inch rear Formula VI Race forged wheels with carbon fiber aero discs signed by TechArt can be replaced, at the owner’s discretion, with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 or 265/35 ZR20 front and 325/30 ZR21 rear Pilot Sport RS tires.
This is the fastest 992-based TechArt model so far. Its maximum speed reaches 350 km/h (217 mph), propelled by a flat-six twin-turbo 3.8-liter engine. Courtesy of the upgraded software and the new turbochargers, it roars 789 hp (588 kW / 800 PS) with 701 lb-ft (950 Nm) torque, which is 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS) and 150 Nm (111 lb-ft) more than what Porsche 911 Turbo S unleashes. But if that’s too much power for you, you may opt for the kit including only the upgraded soft. This one will not go beyond 700 hp and 664 lb-ft torque.
With a kit of adjustable coilover or sport spring set, the suspension can be lowered by a maximum of 25 mm. The optional Clubsport package including additional upgrades like a completely adjustable suspension and high-performance seats will soon become available, too.
As for the interior, there is lots of Alcantara leather and carbon fiber finished in matching colors with the exterior. The patterns come in retro style, with GTstreet R badges. The official configurator can be used for further customization.
There’ll be only 87 GTstreet R units, with a price starting at EUR 73.000 (a little less than USD 87.000). This price includes only the upgrades, so add the Porsche 911 Turbo or Turbo S price to that figure.
