TechArt Reveals Porsche 911 GTStreet RS for Frankfurt

TechArt's Porsche 911 GTStreet RS is heading to the Frankfurt Auto Show with 720hp and a top speed of 218mph.
German tuner TechArt isn't finished with the outgoing generation of the famed Porsche 911. Later this week, they plan on unveiling their new GTStreet, which is based on the Porsche 911 GT2 RS. Set for its official debut at the Frankfurt Auto Show, TechArt has increased the GT2 RS's performance to 720hp and 663 lb-ft of maximum torque. It can go from 0 to 62mph in just 3.3 seconds and has a top speed of 218mph.

In addition to the significant performance boost, TechArt has also done some work to the Porsche's exterior, beginning with a lowered front apron with a fixed carbon splitter and an adjustable splitter made from hard-wearing polyurethane-RIM that ensures additional downforce. There are also new air ducts for improved airflow to the brakes and the intercooler. A new rear spoiler, carbon-fiber integrated diffuser, air outlets and air wings made with carbon fiber round out the exterior enhancements. TechArt also has added their own Noselift hydraulic system which adjusts the front height at a rate of 10mm/second.
This allows for the GTStreet to go over speed bumps with greater ease and to prevent body damage. The interior is covered in the tuner's own leather and custom-colored decorative stitching. There's also a choice between carbon fiber or aluminum pedals and illuminated door entry guards. No official pricing has been announced, but we're hoping TechArt will reveal more information later this week from Frankfurt.
