After the Gemballa Mistrale, 9ff finally revealed today its brand new tuning kit for the Porsche Panamera. The German tuning kit offers a new Turbo performance kit that at 550 hp and actually reaches a spectacular 650 hp. This new kit starts with the 9ff PT-55, receiving an ECU upgrade, 9ff Sport air filters and a total output of 550 hp and a torque of 760 Nm.

The next level is the 9ff PT-60, receiving 9ff sport exhaust system with sport catalytic converters which produces the typical 9ff turbo exhaust sound, which brings 600 hp and a torque of 760 Nm.

The 3rd level, which receives 9ff sport air filter, 9ff ECU, 9ff engine cover, 9ff illuminated door sill protectors, 9ff sport exhaust system, new 9ff PT-65 turbochargers and new engine bonnets with air vents, is the 9ff PT-65 with its 650 hp and 850 Nm of torque and a performance which is similar to supersportscars.

Inside, the tuner offers new materials, new colors and also different designs. The kit is completed by the 22 inches, 3 piece design wheels.

The Porsche Panamera has five technological innovations that are included in a production model -- a first for the luxury performance class. The brand’s Gran Turismo for example was the first to present the double-clutch gearbox in addition to the start-stop system that works with its automatic transmission.

It was also the first to introduce the adaptive air suspension that had on-demand added volume for each of the springs. Active aerodynamics was possible due to the inclusion of the rear spoiler that could automatically move up in order to adjust the angle of its air flow.

It also offered the Sport Chrono Package, which by pressing a button, allows the engine, transmission, suspension, and even the other parts to result in a more dynamic and sportier set-up. The Launch Control, when combined with the PDK, results in the fastest acceleration from zero.

The different models of the Panamera line also set new benchmarks as it relates to efficiency. All of the models will have lightweight bodies and will come equipped with the Direct Fuel Injection and the low-friction drive systems. The top version of the Porsche Panamera Turbo in fact weighs less than 4,410 lb. or around 2,000 kilograms even with the wide collection of standard features available.
