Want to make your Porsche a bit – or a lot – wilder? Techart has a new distributor in Australia.

The German tuner, which builds performance upgrades and crazy aerodynamics packages for the full Porsche range, will be sold through the Scuderia Autoart dealer network.

“Thanks to this partnership and Scuderia Autoart’s expertise for over ten years as well as extensive distributor network, our premium refinement programs and renowned handcrafted products are now at hand to all Porsche owners in the region,” said Tobias Beyer, Techart CEO.

Sitting at the top end of the Techart line-up is the GTstreet R, based on the 911 Turbo S coupe or convertible.

Although owners can choose exactly how crazy they’d like their car to be, the most over-the-top model makes a whopping 596kW and 950Nm from its 3.8-litre turbocharged flat-six engine. Flat out you’ll be doing 350km/h.

Under the skin, the GTstreet R rides on a lower, wider suspension than stock, and the wild exterior increases downforce at the rear and slashes lift at the front end.

Owners who want to upgrade a specific part of the cars can choose from power packs, suspension upgrades, exterior kits, and interior trim pieces from the Techart catalogue on everything from the 718 to the Taycan.

“Being the exclusive importer and distributor for Techart in Australia and New Zealand, we look forward to position Techart as a top-of-mind refinement brand amongst Porsche owners in the region and intend to enable customers to personalise their Porsche vehicle with the finest products and services available in the market,” said Alessio Iera, managing director of Scuderia Autoart.

All the Techart upgrades are warrantied, which isn’t always the case with mega-power tuner cars.
