Ger­man tun­ing house Techart has un­veiled a 991.2 GT3 Sport Pack­age at the Essen

Mo­tor Show. Ex­ten­sive use of car­bon fi­bre, man­u­fac­tured in-house at Techart’s Leon­berg base, fea­tures heav­ily on air scoops, wings and mir­rors fea­tured on Porsche’s lat­est GT3.

Techart says its up­grades re­place those found on the car from fac­tory, in­clud­ing a light­weight front lid with integrated air out­let, front spoiler with re­vised air blades un­der­neath the day­time run­ning lights, as well as side skirts. At the back of the car, the kit com­prises car­bon ram air scoops on the deck­lid, new aero­dy­namic winglets plus a rear dif­fuser. The Sport Pack­age also has a choice of ti­ta­nium or car­bon tailpipes for the cen­trally mounted twin exit ex­haust.

Techart’s cen­tral-lock­ing, 20-inch forged For­mula IV Race wheel makes a re­turn for the GT3’S Sport Pack­age, while in­side, an in­te­rior cus­tomi­sa­tion pro­gramme fea­tures colour-coded in­stru­ment di­als, al­loy sport ped­als, per­son­alised door en­try guards and an all-new ‘Type 7’ Sport steer­ing wheel. The wheel mea­sures 360mm – the same as Porsche’s own Sport steer­ing wheel – with a mix­ture of sur­faces, in­clud­ing painted faces, plus leather and Al­can­tara seg­ments, while main­tain­ing all fac­tory func­tions, in­clud­ing pad­dle shift and wheel heat­ing.
