Porsche 993 Turbo Techart

TECHART Automobildesign GmbH is a German automobile tuner specialized in existing Porsches, for which they offer extensive tuning packages. The company was founded in 1987 by Thomas Behringer and Matthias Kraus in Fellbach and a year later the headquarters were moved to Leonberg, Germany. Through the 1990s, Techart continued modifying Porches. It was the last air-cooled Turbo and the first all-wheel-drive Turbo from the 911 lineup.

The 911 Turbo was already a legendary model and it was a car that set the standards for supercars all-over the world. It was the only car that could challenge or embarrass a Ferrari on a track, especially if the track was wet and its all-wheel-drive system provided better traction than a rear-wheel-drive Ferrari. The Porsche 911 Turbo was the closest link between a 911 and the mighty Porsche 959, the Dakar and LeMans winner.

It looked mean. The front bumper featured an apron with a wide grille and one slat. On its corners, there were air-scoops to cool the brakes. The wide-body was accentuated by the air-intakes on the rear fenders, needed to feed the KKK turbocharger. A fixed-wing in the back was designed to provide downforce over the rear wheels.

Inside, the Turbo was built with high-quality materials, leather sport bucket seats, and a full dashboard with five dials. The air-conditioning and the premium audio were standard for the car. The sunroof was offered as an option not because it was expensive, but because some people didn’t want that extra weight on the roof.

Under the hood was a 3.6-liter engine as in the Carrera, but turbocharged. It was able to pull 408 hp from it and it offered warp-style accelerations for that era. It was still considered a very quick car even two decades later, due to its 4 seconds acceleration from 0 to 100 kph (0-62 mph).
