It was just a matter of time before TechArt unveiled its take on the new 997 Porsche 911 Turbo. That day will arrive next month, when the GTstreet takes a bow at the Geneva show. And compared to the company's last iteration, the bar has been lifted in an upward fashion. TechArt boosted horsepower to 630 from the Turbo's stock 480, and sent the torque number skyward to 604 lbs-ft from 457. TechArt says that's good for a zero-to-62 mph time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 214 mph. It's completed with a functional body kit (one would hope) and according to a teaser sketch, the show car will sport a paint job inspired by some manner of Halloween fantasy. Boo, indeed.
World Debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2007
The Next Generation:
TechArt GTstreet Based on Porsche 911 Turbo
With its 2001 TechArt GTstreet based on the Porsche 911 Turbo of the 996 model series, TechArt Automobildesign created one of the fastest and most powerful street-legal sports cars of its time. The next evolutionary stage of this fascinating concept celebrates its world debut at the Geneva Motor Show 2007: The new TechArt GTstreet based on the 911 Turbo of the latest 997 series.
Like the predecessor the new GTstreet edition centers on a powerful engine: The 3.6-liter twin-turbo flat engine is modified by the TechArt engine specialists and now develops 630 hp / 463 kW at 6,800 rpm, up from standard 480 hp / 353 kW. Peak torque increases from 620 Nm to 820 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
Thus equipped the TechArt GTstreet delivers performance that firmly places it among the world's fastest sports cars: 0 - 100 km/h in just 3.2 seconds, 200 km/h after just 10.9 seconds and a top speed of 345 km/h speak volumes.
The body kit for the TechArt GTstreet was created in the wind tunnel, and offers an optimal symbiosis of aerodynamic downforce, minimized drag and striking design.
