Porsche Panamera Individualization Programme now available in Europe

Article by Christian A., on August 30, 2010

Starting this September, Porsche will offer the Panamera Turbo Powerkit, a Sport Design Package and 20-inch Panamera Sport Wheels in Europe.

Earlier this month, Porsche had announced that it will introduce these upgrades on the North American market. The Turbo Powerkit boosts the power of the Panamera model.

Torque is increased to 750 Nm with the use of two new turbochargers with titanium aluminum turbine wheels.

The vehicle can now accelerate to 60mph in 3.9 seconds (0.1 sec faster than the production car). Its maximum speed is 305 km/h (189.5mph), faster than the regular version by about 2 km/h.

Powerkit has a price tag of €16,695.70, including VAT. Porsche Tequipment will be launching the upgrade as a retrofit kit this November.

Priced at €4,581.50 including VAT, the Sport Design Package features an exterior color, painted front end with widened black air intake grilles, separate side skirts and the standard, exterior color painted rear underbody apron with diffuser and fins.

However, side skirts can be ordered separately for an extra €969.85 including VAT. Panamera owners might also want to get the 20-inch Panamera Sport Wheels, which will sell in Europe for €1,588.65 including VAT. Consumers can opt for their wheels to be colored GT silver metallic, black, or in the car color.

New Individualization Programme for the Panamera

Starting in September, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, will offer a Powerkit for the Panamera Turbo, which will raise engine output by 40 hp to 540 hp. Moreover, a Sport Design Package and the new 20-inch Panamera Sport wheels will widen the individualization programme for the Gran Turismo range.

Key elements of this Panamera Turbo Powerkit are two new turbochargers with titanium aluminium turbine wheels. Engine management has been adapted accordingly and thus, the result is an appreciable further improvement of the engine's response. Maximum torque rises to 750 Nm. If in overboost mode included in the Sport Chrono package which is available ex factory as part of the Panamera Turbo Powerkit, it goes up to 800 Nm. In Sport Plus mode, the Panamera Turbo accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.9 sec – 0.1 sec faster than the production car. Top speed is 305 km/h compared with 303 km/h of the production vehicles. With 11.5 ltr/100 km (24.6 mpg imp) during the NEDC test cycle, fuel consumption of an Panamera Turbo with Powerkit is not higher than that of the 500 hp production model. This, too, is what Porsche Intelligent Performance means to Porsche. As a Porsche Exclusive option, the Powerkit is available from September 2010 at a price of Euro 16,695.70 including VAT. Porsche Tequipment will launch the Powerkit as a retrofit kit from November 2010.

With its new Sport Design Package, Porsche offers its Panamera customers another possibility to customize their cars optically. The package includes a unique, exterior colour painted front end with widened black air intake grilles, separate side skirts and the standard, exterior colour painted rear underbody apron with diffuser and fins.

Starting in October 2010, the Sport Design Package will be available from Porsche Exclusive, or for retrofitting from Porsche Tequipment. The price from Porsche Exclusive is Euro 4,581.50 including VAT. On request, side skirts can be supplied separately at a price of Euro 969.85 including VAT.

For an especially sporting performance with enhanced appearance and driving dynamics, the third feature of the extended range of options offered for the Panamera are the new 20-inch Panamera Sport wheels. The light alloy multi-spoke wheel is 9.5" wide on the front axle, and 11.5" on the rear axle. Thus, it does not only have a larger tyre contact area but is also flush with the wheel arch. The wheels are available from Porsche Exclusive in GT silver metallic, black, or in the car colour from Euro 1,588.65 including VAT, and from Porsche Tequipment in GT silver metallic and black for retrofitting.

With its Porsche Exclusive and Porsche Tequipment programmes,
Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, offers you the possibility to enhance each Porsche model beyond its standard equipment to fit your personal and exclusive wishes: from the factory through Porsche Exclusive, or in each Porsche Centre through Tequipment Retrofitting.
