TechArt and Porsche go together like Brabus and Mercedes-Benz. So for this year’s 2011 Frankfurt Motor Show, TechArt has teased the world with its latest effort by releasing photos of its creation ahead of the full debut at Frankfurt.
Based on the new 2012 Porsche 911 GT2 RS, the GTStreet RS gets a whole series of upgrades. These include and are not limited to upgraded bodywork for better aerodynamics, a new power kit that gives the already raging flat-six more power and much more.
But let’s start off with the more interesting stuff. The TechArt GTStreet RS takes the GT2’s standard 3.6L twin-turbocharged flat-six and bumps the power from 612hp and 516 lb-ft of torque to 720hp and 664 lb-ft of torque. That allows the GTStreet RS to accelerate to 60 in 3.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 219 mph. Blimey.
The revised body work includes a lower front fascia with a carbon fiber splitter, an adjustable rear splitter to aid down force and more air ducts to help cool the brakes and the intercooler.
The launch for the new TechArt Porsche is expected to occur sometime in December with pricing being announced closer to that date.
The tuner also launched a tuning program for the new 2012 Porsche 911. That will give the new 911 trims painted in custom color or carbon fiber, TECHART Formula III forged light alloy wheel in 20- and 21-inch size, available colors are Sterling Silver and individual paint with five dynamically shaped twin-spokes.
