TechArt Claims 5 Victories in Sport Auto Magazine’s Most Sportive Cars Annual Vote
Readers of the popular automobile review magazine, Sport Auto Magazine, placed TECHART Automobildesign GmbH onto the podium five times in their annual vote for The Most Sportive Cars. TECHART is a German tuning company focused primarily on Porsches. It is hard enough to win the hearts of 10,000 readers once, but five times is truly impressive.
Since 1980, Sport Auto Magazine has asked readers to vote for The Most Sportive Cars every year. This year, readers chose TECHART as one of the top contenders in five categories: Cabriolets over 80,000 Euro, Coupes under 80,000 Euro, Limousines over 80,000 Euro, Coupes over 80,000 Euro, and finally, Super Sportcars.
TECHART secured first place in the Cabriolets over 80,000 Euro with their GT Street R, their version of the Porsche 911 Turbo Coupe. Its placement onto the throne of this category isn’t without merit. The GT Street R is styled elegantly without compromising performance. TECHART started by fitting a front apron with an integrated carbon splitter along with a rear GT spoiler. Inside this champ, TECHART replaced the steering wheel with its very own hand stitched three-spoke wheel with paddle shifters. Just in case you didn’t think Porsche’s original buckets were not snug enough, TECHART replaced them with their own sport seats.
Its engine performance was enough to nudge the readers to vote for the GT Street R onto first place. And with 660 hp and 860 Nm of torque on tap at 4600 rpm it’s no wonder why. It will launch you from a stand-still into the next century in 3.4 seconds—well, when I say ‘next century’ I meant 100 KPH (roughly 62 MPH).
The GT Street R was not the only one that made it to the top. TECHART’s customized Porsche Cayman S was second place in Coupes over 80,000 Euro. Additionally, TECHART’s Porsche Panamera Turbo, GT Street R (Coupe), and GT Street RS were all chosen third place in their respective categories. Overall, it is an impressive victory for TECHART Automobildesign GmbH.
TECHART GTStreet R – 1st place in Cabriolets under 80,000 Euro.
TECHART customized Porsche Cayman S – 2nd place in Coupes under 80,000 Euro.
TECHART GTStreet R Coupe – 3rd place in Coupes over 80,000 Euro.
TECHART GTStreet RS – 3rd place in Super Sportscar.
