German automotive company TECHART’s car customisations are highly sought-after, and it has once more been proven by the announcement that all 87 of its GTstreet R versions of the Porsche 911 Turbo are now sold. Jeremy Webb looks at what makes TECHART and this particular model so desirable.
TECHART has announced that it has sold out of all the limited edition TECHART GTstreet R models. This statement is ahead of the company’s next powerhouse model, which is already on the way. It has taken twenty months since it unveiled its Porsche 911 Turbo-based sportscar for all 87 units to sell out. So the German design brand has had to come up with something new, and it could be even more impressive than the GTstreet R.
The already potent 911 Turbo has become one of its segment’s most powerful and exclusive vehicles, and the TECHART GTstreet R individualisation turns the turbo cabriolet and coupe models into incredible road-legal supercars.
The conversion features various individualisation, including aerodynamic improvement, exterior and interior styling, and performance upgrades. The company’s intelligent power kits mean the GTstreet R produces 800 horsepower and 950 Nm of torque, which results in a top speed of over 350 km/h.
TECHART GTstreet R conversions require four to six weeks of construction, depending on the level of individualisation. On average, five cars were permanently in the manufacturing process simultaneously.
Tobias Beyer, Managing Director of TECHART Automobildesign GmbH, said, “We are thrilled that all 87 units of the TECHART GTstreet R have been sold out. This is a testament to the incredible craftsmanship and engineering that goes into every TECHART refined vehicle, as well as the passion and dedication of our partners and customers worldwide.
We are grateful for the support of our customers and fans, and we look forward to delivering the last units of these incredible vehicles to their owners.”
He added, “The TECHART GTstreet R, engineered in Germany, represents the pinnacle of performance and individualisation, and we are proud to be able to share it with the world.”
Introduced in 2001, TECHART’s unique customisation GTstreet R has achieved global recognition for its exceptional combination of unparalleled performance on the track and seamless everyday usability.
Each GTstreet TR is built individually to the client’s specifications, so they have a limitless range of colour and trim options available and are carefully finished to the highest automotive standards.
