2012 TechArt 911 Carrera Coupé

An elegant appearance with a clear sporty design – simply unmistakable. Welcome to the premiere of the TECHART Program for the Porsche 911. The completely newly developed TECHART exterior design for the Carrera and Carrera S models will be officially presented as part of the 2012 Geneva Motor Show in a few weeks.

From every angle: distinctively TECHART

One glance at the newly designed front end and you immediately recognise the sporty character of the vehicle. The two-part TECHART front spoiler with an integrated splitter fits perfectly into the design of the sports car and allows the front to sit even closer to the ground. In addition, two Aero Wings, which are integrated into the front air inlet vents, lend the car a new and dynamic shaft outline.

There is a clear TECHART statement on the rear of the Porsche 911: the fixed rear spoiler with a striking trailing edge and an integrated third brake light, which assimilates with the line of the roof and reflects the overall sporty impression from every angle. As your gaze continues downwards, the TECHART rear diffusor and the TECHART side skirts on the wing of the vehicle complete the exterior range. Subtle trim panels for the front headlights as well as side mirror panels provide further highlights that come with an assured sense of style.

Thanks to the new TECHART exhaust system with valve control including EC-type approval, as well as the dual oval tubes, the Porsche 911 combines its visual appearance with an impressive and attractive acoustic.

For unique exterior design, TECHART offers its customers the classic and elegant TECHART Formula 5-spoke light alloy wheel in 20- and 21-inch sizes for the new Carrera and Carrera S. Similarly, the TECHART Formula III forged wheel with five dynamically designed double spokes is available in 20 and 21-inch. This wheel offers a weight advantage of up to 15 % compared to a cast wheel and the connected reduction in unsprung mass contributes to an immediate increase in driving dynamics.

Individualisation without limits in the TECHART factory

For the interior of the sports car there is a range of the finest materials, stylish colour combinations and numerous modification options, giving the customer the chance to implement all of the customisations they want. The exhibition display car for the Geneva Motor Show features a high quality modified interior in the finest black leather and alcantara. The vehicle-colour-coordinated stitching combined with the matt-painted interior components in racing yellow and black, as well as the carbon fibre trim, uncompromisingly reflect the sporting nature of the vehicle in the interior too. The ergonomically shaped TECHART 3-spoke sports steering wheel with the perfectly integrated TECHART paddle shifters for a precise control, as well as simple and fast shifting, completes the dynamic TECHART appearance in the interior of the Porsche 911 Carrera S.
