Geneva, Switzerland – German-based TechArt Automobildesign will unveil its newest concept, the TechArt GTstreet, at the Geneva Motor Show in March. The 630-hp street-legal car is based on the Porsche 911 Turbo.

The GTstreet uses a 3.6-litre twin-turbocharged engine modified by TechArt to produce 630 hp at 6800 rpm, up from the vehicle’s standard 480 hp, with peak torque increased to 605 lb-ft from 457 lb-ft. The car accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds, from 100 to 200 km/h in 10.9 seconds, and has a top speed of 345 km/h. The car’s body kit was created in a wind tunnel and offers optimal aerodynamic downforce and minimized drag.
