Porsche Of The Day: 2017 Porsche 911 Turbo S – TechArt GTStreet R
TechArt has fully upgraded this 991.2-generation Porsche 911 Turbo S to GTStreet R specification. The rear engine lid houses a TechArt-enhanced 3.8-litre twin-turbocharged flat-six, delivering up to 700 horsepower to all four wheels through a seven-speed PDK transmission.
Externally, the enhancements include the complete TechArt GTStreet R aerodynamics package. This features a redesigned carbon-fibre front apron with an active spoiler, carbon-fibre airframes around the headlights, flaps for increased downforce, a carbon-fibre bonnet, front wings with arch vents, side skirts, extended wheel arches, rear quarter air vents, a redesigned rear diffuser, a central rear panel, a rear bumper with cooling vents, and a rear wing with twin winglets, along with a ‘ram-air’ engine lid intake.
The car is finished in Ferrari Giallo Triplo Strato with exposed carbon-fibre elements, a matte-black central racing stripe with yellow accents, GT Street R badging, and decals. Inside, the cabin features black leather and Alcantara upholstery with yellow stitching, Alcantara accents, embroidered ‘GT Street R’ lettering, TechArt emblems, and carbon-fibre trim. It rides on 20-inch TechArt Formula IV Race forged alloy wheels in matte black with yellow accents, housing yellow TechArt-branded brake callipers over carbon-ceramic discs, and Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 tyres.
Factory specifications include parking sensors, a reversing camera, switchable driving modes, cruise control, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, PCM infotainment with navigation, and a Bose sound system. The cabin is upgraded with the GTStreet R ‘Clubsport’ package, featuring a rear roll cage, harnesses, fabric door pulls, carbon-fibre-back bucket seats, a TechArt sport steering wheel, a yellow GTStreet R rev-counter, leather floor mats, aluminium pedals, footrest, and illuminated tread plate plaques.
