Porsche Panamera Turbo Powerkit Delivers 540 Factory Horsepower | AutoGuide.com News
Porsche has just announced a new “Individualization Programme” for the Panamera, including a Powerkit for the Panamera Turbo that bumps engine output to 540-hp. Included in the power pack are two new turbos with titanium aluminum turbine wheels and new engine management software. With power rising from 500-hp to 540-hp, torque also jumps, from 516 ft-lbs of torque to 553 ft-lbs. In addition, an overboost mode (available with the Sport Chrono package) delivers as much as 590 ft-lbs. This results in a 0-62 mph time of just 3.9 seconds!
And in case you’re wondering what that extra boost will cost you at the pump, Porsche says nothing, with fuel economy unchanged from the standard model. Offered as a Porsche Exclusive mode, it will cost you quite a bit to buy, however, with European pricing set at 16,695.70 Euros.
Along with being a factory option for new Panamera Turbo buyers, Porsche will also offer the Powerkit through Porsche Tequipment as a retrofit.
In addition to the Powerkit, Porsche will also offer a new Sport Design Package for the Panamera with a more aggressive front end, new side skirts and rear diffuser. And finally, new Porsche Panamera Sport wheels will be offered in a 20-inch size, measuring 9.5-inches up front and 11.5-inches in the rear, making room for wider tires. These wheels will be available in silver metallic, black or paint-matched to your Panamera.
