(from TechArt Press
Release) 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 is now available: The new TechArt GTstreet, based
on the 911 Turbo of the latest 997 series, starts at 245,000 Euros
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.
The TechArt TA 097/T3 engine conversion comprises two special VTG
turbochargers, a new air box with sport air filter, high-performance
manifolds, intercoolers and a stainless-steel sport exhaust system
with high-performance catalysts. The precise optimal interaction of
all modifications is ensured by a newly programmed engine management
Power is transferred to all four wheels via a modified transmission
with TechArt gear-throw shortening.
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.
The front fascia of the GTstreet with retractable carbon-fiber
splitter produces downforce on the front axle and provides radiator,
oil coolers and brakes with more cooling air, thanks to its large,
striking air inlets. The auxiliary headlamp units with daytime
running lights and fog lamps improve active safety. They also give
the car even more passing clout.
The TechArt GTstreet fender flares on the front axle add 10 mm to
the two-door’s width and give it an even more dynamic appearance.
But that’s not all: The air outlets behind the front wheel houses
optimize brake venting. The larger air ducts in the rear sidewalls
provide engine and intercoolers with a larger supply of cooling air.
For an optimal transition between front and rear fenders the TechArt
designers have developed rocker panels that complement the new
contours. TechArt mirror and headlamp moldings provide the finishing
The TechArt roof spoiler extends the roofline and optimizes airflow
to the adjustable rear airfoil of the GTstreet.
The TechArt GTstreet rear fascia with integrated carbon-fiber
diffuser contributes to the strong downforce generated on the rear
axle. It also provides the perfect backdrop for the quad exhaust of
the TechArt high-performance exhaust system.
TechArt Automobildesign offers a number of versions of its popular
Formula wheel in sizes 8.5Jx20 in front and 12Jx20 on the rear axle.
GTstreet buyers can choose from several color combinations and
between the one-piece Formula and the multi-piece Formula II
designs. The Formula II wheel features an exchangeable wheel lip.
For optimal tires TechArt chose ContiSportContact 3 high-performance
tires in sizes 245/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20.
The large 20-inch wheels also provide the necessary space for the
especially powerful and durable TechArt high-performance brake
system. It features six-piston aluminum fixed calipers and
390-millimeter discs on the front axle. The rear axle is fitted with
365-millimeter discs and four-piston fixed calipers.
The TechArt GTstreet comes with a TechArt VarioPlus coil-over
suspension that is based on the electronically adjustable PASM
damping system of the 911 Turbo. This chassis allows individual
ride-height lowering by up to 25 millimeters and push-button
selection of two different damper settings, “Normal” or “Sport.”
However, the dampers are not limited to these presets. Sporty
driving automatically results in firmer damper settings in both
modes, thus combining excellent ride comfort during normal driving
with agile and responsive handling during fast cornering.
The cockpit of the TechArt GTstreet also differs distinctly from the
stock 911 Turbo. Among the differences is an exclusive leather
interior with color-contrasted stitching and sporty CarboBlack
highlights. The coupe is further equipped with an ergonomically
shaped TechArt sport steering wheel, aluminum foot pedals, foot rest
and shifter, as well as with illuminated door sills sporting the
