Techart Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo boosts power and style with GrandGT Supreme kit

The Panamera Sport Turismo is already an impressive car but German Tuner Techart and the Porsche specialists within the company plan to debut a special GrandGT kit for the upcoming 2018 Geneva Motor Show that is bound to enhance its appeal. After the upgrade called the GrandGT Supreme, the wagon now features an aggressive body and an opulent cabin.

Like the standard GrandGT kit, the version has a front bumper design similar to it but it comes with a hood that has a huge power bulge. The wagon now has a wider stance, thanks to the wider fenders and lower side sills. There are larger diffusers in the back that gain even larger strakes than the existing body kit. This wagon sits on new Techart Formula IV wheels, with five sets of double spokes, measuring at 22 inches.

To match the meaner look of this Sport Turismo, Techart can offer you a powertrain upgrade as well. The company’s engine upgrade can push the Panamera Turbo to have an output of 630 horsepower (470 kilowatts) and 664 pound feet (900 Newton metres) of torque. That is a lot more compared to the stock output of 550 horsepower (410 kilowatts) and 567 pound feet (769 Newton metres) of torque.

Porsche confirms Panamera sedan would soon feature rear bench seat for fifth passenger

The Porsche Panamera sporty sedan offers a dynamic drive and comfortable ride, with the capability to accommodate up to four occupants. While the Porsche Panamera is a healthy proposition for North American drivers who wanted a performance-laden sedan, it does discourage potential customers looking for a sedan that could to ferry up to five occupants at a time.

Now Porsche is looking forward to win back those customers in the United States. Klaus Zellmer, chief executive of Porsche Cars North America, told Automotive News at the Frankfurt Motor Show that the German sports car maker is making available an optional rear bench. With this option, the Porsche Panamera sedan could accommodate five occupants, instead of the usual four. However, the bench option would be made available next year, so for now, Panamera sedan customers would have to settle for the four-seater.

As designed, the Porsche Panamera sedan carries two occupants on the front (driver and front passenger) and another two on the rear cabin (individually seated rear passengers). The individual seats on the front are separated by a center console, and so are the individual seats on the rear. This basically rules out the existence of a fifth passenger in the Panamera sedan.

2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo offers top performance for $223,530

Everybody’s favourite long roof from Porsche has now been given the hybrid treatment and is now dubbed the 2018 Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo. It had recently been given an additional 136-horsepower electric motor like that of the standard Panamera E-Hybrid Turbo. It’s combined to an already powerful 4.0 liter biturbo V8 with as much as 550 horsepower. Overall, it now produces a combined output of 680 horsepower, making it the most powerful long roof out there. Let us not refer to it as a wagon or an estate since Porsche refuses to call it that. Rather, it’s referred to as the Sport Turismo.

With regards to the efficiency of the 918 hypercar’s hybrid powertrain that has been used here, it is apparently on par with the 3.0 liter version of the Panamera even if it has way more power. What makes it even more impressive is the fact that you can drive this model for as far as 31 miles on a rate of 87 miles per hour without having to use a drop of gasoline. But depending on the type of connection being used, the charging time may vary from 2.4 to 6 hours.

According to the automaker, the hybrid Sport Turismo will be able to hit 60 miles per hour in only 3.4 seconds. To be honest, it doesn’t take as fast for many people to say the full name of the car. What may be a little confusing is the fact that the automaker lists the same acceleration figure for the regular Turbo S Sport Turismo. That’s because a downside of the hybrid powertrain is that it adds considerable weight to the unit.

The first time Porsche revealed the Panamera Sport Turismo to the public was during the 2017 Geneva Motor Show earlier this year. And now it has already entered production, and is on its way to its first customers all over the globe. The Leipzig facility was produced especially for the second-generation Panamera family, and Porsche had to invest a total of €500 million ($582 million), a part of which was used to build a new quality center.

The new 400-hectare facility is also in charge of the production of the Macan and Cayenne SUVs, apart from the Panameras. There are 4,055 people who are working in the facility and in the last year alone, they produced a total of 158,432 cars. The Leipzig facility opened in August 2002 and already €1.3 billion ($1.5M) have been invested.

Within the facility, 345,345 square meters cover the production area. To date, the Leipzig factory has 948 robots in the body shop, paint shop, and in the assembly facility, where they build 1.7 million parts each day. There is a wood chip burning system that provides 80% CO2-neutral heat to the paint shop. Outside the production area, there is a 3.7-kilometer race track and a 6-kilometer off-road track. In terms of wildlife, 75 aurochs, 1.5 million bees, and wild horses live in the area. Porsche’s factory is also open to visitors, and 40,000 people come to the customer center annually.

After giving the Porsche 911 Cabriolet a new boost in performance, German automobile tuner TechArt is back once more with a styling kit for the new Porsche Panamera. TechArt’s GrandGT widebodykit as they call it will increase the four door sedan’s overall width by as much as 80mm at the rear and 50mm at the front.

Aside from the new front and rear bumpers, the tuning house has also included special accessories into the package. Among which includes a new sport exhaust system, carbon fiber quad tailpipes, a rear boot spoiler, rear diffuser and new side skirts.

For better variety, clients can further enhance their Panameras with a brand new set of 22-inch Formula IV alloys or with a new carbon fiber bonnet. Like the Nano Grey Porsche Panamera on the recent press release, the wheels can be had in the same color as the body paint while the brake calipers can be coated in special color as well. The twin spoke wheels are then fitted to a new set of tyres measuring 285/30 ZR 22 and 335/25 ZR 22—- for the front and rear respectively.

Undeniably the crowd favourite at the Geneva Motor Show, the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is getting ready to turn more heads and steal the spotlight at the Big Apple this weekend for its U.S. Premiere as it travels from Stuttgart to New York.

The long-roofed Panamera is definitely one of the most appealing cars today. With a wide opening rear tailgate and a loading floor that is only two feet off the ground. This is definitely an upgrade from the second generation.

The Sport Turismo’s four trim packages are as follows: Panamera 4, with a 3.0 liter turbo V6 engine that produces 330 horsepower that speeds up to 60 miles per hour in 5 seconds. Panamera 4S with a twin-turbo 2.9 liter yielding 440 horsepower and sprints 60 miles per hour in 4 seconds, the 4 E-Hybrid that is equipped with a 4S powertrain and a 136-HP electric motor. And last, the Panamera Turbo Sport that can drive from 0-60 miles per hour in 3.4 seconds with the help of its 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8, which can produce 550 horsepower.

The German automobile tuner TechArt, which specializes in modifying premium sports cars especially Porsche, is now in its 30th year of service. Since the late 1980s, Techart has been an established name for an unmatched array of modification options at the most premium standards, and is also known for its undying passion in customizing roadsters—exclusively for the Porsche line up.

The tuning company was started in 1987 by Thomas Behringer and Matthias Krauss, with the main headquarters found in Leonberg, Germany. Techart is vastly considered as an independent car manufacturer and the company started out in Fellbach manufacturing premium interiors for different car models. Around that time period, Techart took a fancy to Porsche models, and successfully released its first ever body kit for Porsche 928 around 1987. Modifying something as fascinating as the Porsche 911 is considered a feat if done correctly, and only a few companies are willing to partake of this unforgiving task.

But a year after Porsche 928's modified body kit was released, an aero kit for the then current 964 model 911 was unveiled to the public eye. Techart's operation extended all throughout the 1990s and covered the divisions for sleek design and utmost performance in which the latter was released in 1995 with the C3 program on the 911 Carrera, which is built with a supercharge to produce an output of 462 hP.

TechArt’s latest project, the Porsche 911 Turbo itself, is a pretty awesome car to own. And it’s not only because of its powerful engine, and beautiful exterior design. However, some people just can’t get enough of what is already in the market. What do I mean by that? The German automobile tuner came up with an even more extravagant design, sans roof, calling this version the GTstreet R Cabriolet.

Some of the highlights of this car in terms of performance are its powerful engine with the capacity to deliver 720 horsepower (or 530 kilowatts) and 678 pound feet torque, allowing it to accelerate from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in a mind-blowing 3.5 seconds, while proceeding to its maximum speed of 340 kilometers per hour (211 mph) -- that is even faster than a 911 Turbo.

The wonders of this car don’t end there. It has an adjustable rear wing just like the one on a GT2 RS that can tilt up to 15 degrees for an added downforce, allowing the car to travel faster. In fact, this model has the ability to produce 707 pounds (321 kilograms) of downforce at 186 miles per hour (300 mph) - this was proven when it was tested in a wind tunnel. These are made possible by its new aerokit that features an active spoiler lip, carbon front fenders, and carbon side skirts.

After Porsche launched the Panamera luxurious sporty sedan in 2009, the German sports car maker received numerous requests to follow it up with a wagon version. When 2012 came, many rejoiced when Porsche unveiled the Panamera Sport Turismo Concept at that year’s Paris Auto Show. Until recently, Porsche had not released any official information about the wagon production version of its sporty sedan.

But today, we get an official preview of the wagon version of the Porsche Panamera. The thing is, Porsche doesn’t want to call it a wagon (even if it does fit the description). The global debut of the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo (not a concept anymore) is scheduled to happen in a few days at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show.

It will be displayed and subsequently be available in five flavors: Panamera 4 Sport Turismo, Panamera 4S Sport Turismo, Panamera 4S Diesel Sport Turismo, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo and Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo. All of these will be available for the 2018 model year.

Techart has long been known for presenting a Porsche Cayenne Turbo S-based Magnum during the Essen Motor Show. Its bold campaign has not wavered for the 2016 show as the company has showcased a 720 HP Magnum Sport model.

That figure is not just part of the name but is the actual output making this version the most powerful among the world’s premium SUVs. In fact, one can say that it serves as the perfect challenger to the Brabus GLE 850, for example.

The package being offered right now includes components that have been improved with carbon fiber. Examples of these are the headlight trims, rear spoiler, roof spoiler, and trims of the side mirror. Looking closely at the trim of the taillight, one can clearly observe that it has undergone the carbon fiber treatment.

TechArt Automobildesign GmbH officially unveiled in latest offering, the GTstreet R. Based on both the 2017 Porsche 991 Turbo and the Porsche 991 Turbo S, this new model reveals a wide range of changes done compared to the 911 Turbo. However, it does deliver a downforce of 707 lbs. (321 kgs.) when running at 186 mph (300 km/h).

Moving further, customers are given the choice to have for the chassis the Noselift front axle lift system, which allows for extra ground clearance of 60 mm, or the VarioPlus coilover suspension that has PDDC connectivity. In addition, the chassis can be fitted with either the alloy 20-inch wheels or the 21-inch version.

While a sport exhaust system has been newly installed, it is integrated with a continuously variable pneumatic valve control, which can optimize the back pressure to fit the current load conditions.

German automobile tuner TechArt has been well-known for over 25 years to specialize in creating exceptional Porsche styling programs. TechArt has been working on different Porsche models ranging from 911s, Boxsters, Carrera GTs, Cayennes, Caymans and even Panameras.

Just recently, the tuning company has been up and about creating another masterpiece. It has been working on the Porsche 911 GT3 RS, creating a new look and better features. For some, it is arguably the most potent among all sports cars that the Germany-based tuning company has ever created.

The Porsche 911 GT3 RS has been dubbed as the “race car for the road.” It comes from the line of Porsche 911 Carrera RS, a racing lineage that is arguably one of the best that the German automaker has ever made. The 911 GT3 RS is powered by a naturally aspirated 4.0-liter flat-six engine capable of producing about 500 horsepower at 9,000 rpm. This performance car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds and can reach a top speed of about 193 mph thanks to its lightning-fast seven-speed PDK transmission.
