The GTStreet R is based on the PORSCHE 911 Turbo S, and keeps that model’s 3.8-litre flat-six, seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and four-wheel drive. However, a remap, new turbos and a new exhaust liberate an extra 138bhp and 125lb ft of torque, pushing the totals to 710bhp and 678lb ft. The result is a claimed 0-62mph time of 2.7sec – 0.2sec quicker than Porsche’s figure for the Turbo S – and a top speed of 211mph (up 6mph).
Its carbonfibre bodywork, massive double-decked rear wing, GT3 RS-style front wheelarch vents, wider arches and the new intake scoop atop the engine cover may all look exuberant, but this car has substance to back up its wild appearance.
Thankfully, other colour schemes are available, as you would hope for a conversion that costs €76,109 plus tax (c£78,400) with 631bhp, or €108,109 plus tax (c£111,000) with 710bhp. And don’t forget the £147,540 for the Turbo S donor car!
