TechArt Aero...Charges New Porsche 911 Turbo

Porsche isn't alone in offering retrofit goodies for its 911 sports car series. Following Stuttgart's announcement on the availability of new accessories for the 911, Porsche tuning specialist TechArt released details on a second aero package for the latest 911 Turbo.

The Aerodynamic Kit II is more aggressive than the first stage kit that was unveiled earlier this year. It includes a new front bumper with a lip spoiler and larger air-vents incorporating the firm's multifunctional daytime running light system which combines daytime running lamps, position light, parking light and direction indicators in one LED system unit and a common housing.

The kit also adds more prominent side skirts, a new rear apron with side air-vents and a large rear wing. The company notes that all components of the aero package are made from high-grade materials such as lightweight carbon fiber and hard-wearing polyurethane-RIM.

As with the Aerodynamic Kit I, the stage II package can be combined with TechArt's 'TA 097/T1' or 'TA 097/T2' performance upgrades that boost the 911 Turbo's output from the standard model's 500-horsepower to 570HP and 620HP respectively.
