(from TechArt Press
Release) Powerful engine tuning and exclusive accessories
that leave nothing to be desired: Concurrent with the start of sales
of the new 997-series Porsche 911 Carrera TechArt Automobildesign (
already offers an extensive customization program.
TechArt now also offers engine tuning for both water-cooled
six-cylinder engines of the Carrera and Carrera S, coupe or
cabriolet. The TechArt power kits TA 097/1 for the 3.6-liter version
and TA 097/S1 for the Carrera S with 3.8-liter displacement each
consist of a sport air filter and newly programmed engine
After the installation, which can be done directly at TechArt
Automobildesign or by any authorized Porsche dealer, maximum power
output for each model increases by 20 hp / 14.7 kW.
Performance improves accordingly: Depending on vehicle weight and
the type of tires acceleration time from 0 - 100 km/h improves by
slightly under half a second. Top speed increases by some 5 km/h.
Even more important for everyday use is the even more spontaneous
throttle response and the further improved liveliness of the tuned
The perfect complement to the power kits is Tech Art exhaust tuning,
of which various versions are available. The product lineup includes
oval-shaped dual tailpipes for the production exhaust system, a
throttle-controlled sport exhaust system and a complete
high-performance exhaust system with high-performance manifold,
sport catalysts and rear muffler.
Sporty elegance characterizes the design of the TechArt
aerodynamic-enhancement kit: The production front apron receives
more visual emphasis from the TechArt front spoiler. But that's not
all: The spoiler reduces aerodynamic lift, thus further improving
directional stability at high speeds.
The TechArt side sills give the coupe a longer, sleeker look. The
understated TechArt rear spoiler optimizes the effect of the
retractable production rear spoiler and lends the cabriolet an even
more exciting appearance.
TechArt also developed a rear diffuser for the 997 models, which
extends the rear apron downward and provides a dramatic backdrop for
the two oval-shaped twin tailpipes of the TechArt sport exhaust
TechArt also offers an extensive wheel and suspension program:
Owners of the new Porsche 911 Carrera or Carrera S can refine their
cars with striking, light-weight TechArt Formula five-spoke wheels
with 18-, 19- or 20-inch diameters.
The most exclusive version for the new convertible features new
one-piece TechArt Formula light-alloy wheels in size 8.5Jx20 in
front and in size 11Jx20 on the rear axle. TechArt recommends
ContiSportContact 2 Vmax tires in sizes 235/30 ZR 20 and 305/25 ZR
20 for mounting on these wheels.
Custom-calibrated to the TechArt tire/wheel combinations are the
TechArt suspension solutions. The range of modifications starts with
TechArt sport springs for a ride-height lowering of some 25
millimeters. It culminates in the TechArt Vario sport suspension
that was developed in cooperation with Bilstein. Contrary to
conventional coil-over suspensions this innovative solution not only
offers the ability to lower the ride-height on front and rear axle
individually by up to some 35 millimeters; the TechArt Vario sport
suspension also features sport shocks with adjustable bound and
rebound. This allows the suspension set-up to be adjusted to
individual driver's preferences and to the predominant use of the
car - on public roads or on the racetrack.
For the 997 model series
TechArt also offers sport sway bars, a dome cross-brace, and a
high-performance brake system with eight-piston aluminum fixed
calipers and 365- or 380-millimeter brake discs.
As a world-renowned specialist for exclusive interior creations
TechArt Automobildesign also offers individual interiors for the
latest 911 Carrera Cabriolet in all colors and designs.
The program comprises exclusive TechArt Colorline fully leather
interiors as well as sporty accessories: TechArt offers

rest and shift knob all made from aluminum as well as
