Carbonated Porsche 911 GT3 RS Proves That Less Really Can Be More
Updated August 3, 2018
Techart is known for their subtle styling and aerodynamic kits and they have many years’ experience in the art of Porsche personalization. Working mainly with carbon-fiber, the company specializes in Porsche styling kits that don’t necessarily stand out to the uninitiated, but gets the real aficionados salivating every time.
The 911 GT3 RS pictured here is a prime example of pure Techart treatment – the ornamental side air intakes, front air extractors and the front splitter are all perfectly crafted carbon-fiber bits. Not only does it look spectacular, but the carbon treatment also reduces the GT3’s fighting weight so that it comes fairly close to the feather light 911 R. Not bad.
Techart regularly gets it right, which is saying a lot considering how competitive the Porsche modding market can be. There are plenty of Porsche ‘stylists’ out there, but too many of them tend to go for bling rather than paying homage to the car’s racing heritage. Yes, we love a car that catches your eye, but we still think that mods should serve a purpose, which is where Techart always hits the mark.
With 911 modding being all the rage, even Porsche itself even had to get in on the game (hence Porsche Exclusive, the company’s personalisation department) and they’ve come up with some pretty wild ideas. Porsche Exclusive has a track record of some pretty insane colors such as Lava Orange, Ultraviolet Blue and Rubystone Red (which is a crazy shade of pink).
While we appreciate Exclusive’s sense of fun, we much prefer Techart’s subtle carbon-centric approach. Porsche fanatics and petrol heads in general prefer the way this subtle styling kit highlights the GT3’s performance credentials without going completely overboard. It looks sleek, mean and ready to take on the track. We’ll take two.
