2017 Porsche Panamera gets a dose of GrandGT widebody kit from TechArt

Article by Christian A., on May 8, 2017

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.

Inside, TechArt provides the luxurious four door’s interior with a new blend of Alcantara and leather for its upholstery. Apart from offering a wide range of color scheme for the cabin, the German auto tuner has whipped out an ergonomically enhanced steering wheel especially for the GrandGT. The Type 7 Sport steering wheel come with a size of only 360mm in diameter while owners can further highlight the cabin’s surface either with carbon fiber or gloss finish.

Outside, TechArt’s Porsche Panamera tuning package not only provides the sedan a more aggressive look but is also meant to improve the vehicle’s overall performance. At the front, the new splitter and air intakes are large enough to deliver better airflow. The bumper has a built-in radar sensors to be used with Panamera’s adaptive cruise control system. Similarly, the sedan’s overall weight has also been reduced in the process. This is made possible by the super lightweight carbon fiber hood, which now comes with new power domes at the center.

In its entirety, TechArt’s Grand GT package will make the new Porsche Panamera leaner and more menacing at the same time. Other special modifications come in the form of a fixed rear spoiler, a sportier set of wheel arches, meaner side skirts plus massive rear diffuser with carbon fiber accents.

For interested Porsche owners, TechArt’s Panamera Grand GT conversion kit is expected to come out this June while the exhaust system and power upgrades will arrive sometime in the middle of the year.
