A stock supercar is quickly becoming passe in many circles. To really draw admiring stares among the exotic-car cognoscenti, you need to step up to make your car one-of-a-kind. There are many ways to approach customizing your machine — but typically, this is the road map of tuning steps we would follow:
— rolling stock enhancements via wheels/tires
— power tweaks via ECU reflashes or engine upgrades
— exhaust harmonic changes
— a dramatic exterior makeover via custom aero pieces — every angle should show unique aggression versus factory models
— stance enhancements via track extension with hub spacers
— possible suspension tweaks for ride-height drop
— interior material changes
TopCar is becoming a bit of a favorite tuning boutique around here. This Russia-based firm takes a holistic upgrade strategy to its cars from Porsche, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Range Rover. They partner with Lumma Design, ADV1 wheels, Brembo brakes, 9ff Engineering mechanicals, TechArt spoilers and numerous other suppliers to completely transform cars in all seven ‘steps’ outlined above.
This is a serious power-house tuner. The upgrade catalog alone for the Porsche 911 Carrera in 991 form is extremely deep, but can also be sold individually.
The focus here is the 991 Stinger Porsche. Originally just fitting the C4S and C4’s wider rear hips, the TopCar Stinger overhaul is now available for the C2 and C2S. Ragtops and coupes look equally stunning in the TopCar kit.
TopCar has a very cool and memorable aesthetic for its famous Cayenne, Panamera and Macan models. Same goes for these 911’s — with vacuum-formed carbon-fiber pieces to alter almost every inch of the car’s exterior surfaces.
It is all about seamless front wings, flowing widebody additions to the bodysides and major aggression in the tail.
The results speak for themselves. Very sleek and modern, with immediately more visual impact than the stock Carrera’s.
Pricing is fairly reasonable, but be sure to factor in shipping if you are not in the Moscow region. Typically, TopCar charges a few thousand euros to install and paint all the products locally. It can be more expensive to have the work done near where you live, but nearly any exotic car salon can handle the installation and finishing with either paint or clear lacquer.
All in, the Stinger Porsche kit comes in around $20,000 – with the itemized parts pricing detailed toward the bottom of this page.
