The Flyweight program is part of TECHART's new performance division, which offers comprehensive upgrades for Porsche owners.
The GTstreet R Flyweight is limited to just 19 units and is derived from professional sports, where Flyweight designates athletes in the lightest and most technically-savvy weight classes. The same values are essential factors in the development of all TECHART Flyweight programs and products.
