The Porsche 911 Turbo is a legend on four wheels, a really special car that's absolutely top of the line. Anyone looking to implement optimisation measures on this vehicle has to know exactly what they are doing – and that's where TechArt comes in. At the Geneva Motor Show back in March 2010, the fine-tuning specialists from Leonberg showcased their comprehensive customisation programme for the current facelift version of the 911 Turbo. Following this, just one challenge remained: To increase the vehicle performance.
And this is where the close collaboration with Continental begins. Obviously, more on-road performance is only possible with the right level of grip. And anyway, tackling new challenges as a team is always twice the fun!
More power for the Turbo – that's what the TechArt TA 097/T2 performance kit is responsible for delivering. The engine modifications essentially involve three special, customised components: the TechArt sports air filter, TechArt exhaust manifold set, and the TechArt "Sport" exhaust system. The modifications are optimally harmonised, thanks to the newly programmed engine management system.
This performance kit is designed to get you straight into the fast lane. The upgraded Porsche 911 Turbo effortlessly counts among the fastest cars in the world. It will take you from zero to 100 km/h in a phenomenal 2.9 seconds and you'll break the 200 km/h barrier just 6.4 seconds later. The top speed is also sensational: only when you hit 333 km/h will the speedometer refuse to budge any further.
With performance like this, you need a tyre that's really special. The ContiForceContact is the optimum solution here. As the perfect mix of road and sports tyre, you don't have to compromise on driving pleasure or safety at high speeds. But the tyre is also perfect for everyday use, meaning you can drive home after the race.
With the Porsche 911 Turbo, TechArt and Continental have shown just how much performance a car can really deliver when an automobile tuner and tyre manufacturer work in close collaboration. The result is a vehicle that effortlessly leads the way.
3.8 litre engine, sensational 620 hp at 6,400 rpm, outstanding acceleration and an impressive top speed. Maximum functional quality meets perfect craftsmanship – and the result is performance unprecedented on so many levels.
