With the automotive world abuzz thanks to the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Autoblog instead headed over to Leonberg, Germany to have a little fun with the 711-horsepower TechArt Porsche GTStreet RS. The latest inclination finds a 16 percent bump in horsepower, as well as a 25 percent boost in torque. Despite the Smurfish-blue paint job, the GTStreet RS is quite traditional in many ways. For example, Porsche’s short-throw six-speed manual has been left untouched. Similarly unaltered is the war-like single mass flywheel that doesn’t stop rattling in its cage until you get the clutch pedal all the way to the floor. That TechArt-fettled clutch, about 9.1 inches in diameter, has had its surfacing altered and hardened even further to deal with the greater stresses of launching this beast. For those of you with deep enough pockets, the TechArt Porsche GTStreet RS will go for around $700,000 USD.
