Although it has created both positive and negative comments from the automotive enthusiastic community and the public, the Porsche Panamera has been quite successful throughout production since the mid-2000s and has also resulted in a new generation of models. The outgoing generation of Panamera offered a great blend of luxury and capacity along with the sporty character that the German automaker is known for with its cars. A UK aftermarket company now offers customers a new upgrade kit that gives a smoother, sportier character to the outside and rides thanks to a new wide body change kit and new Porsche rims, along with a tailor-made plush interior to suit any taste.
Panama's four door compartment styling gave it a sleek profile and more athletic look than other luxury sedans in the segment. The engineers and designers of the British aftermarket company decided to take advantage of this by creating a new body kit from a blend of carbon fiber and polyurethane with an OEM quality that facilitates sports, power and performance even more.
The new all-new super-body package for the whole body starts from the front, where a new fascia with integrated LED daylight in the air inlet valves and a new spoiler lip generates the undercarriage on the front axle while providing a stylish style. A new pair of front fenders extend outwards by a total of 80 mm and accommodate the new Porsche rims while containing front and rear hatches for better air flow. A set of side skirts goes backwards where they are met by another pair of extended fenders on the rear axle with air valves. The enlarged windows blend into the new rear bumper which has a new diffuser and exhaust outlet. A new rear trunk spoiler similar to the 911s creates the underpinning to keep the two rear Porsche fields planted on the sidewalk.
In terms of performance, the British team installed a new sports suspension system along with a new stainless steel special design outlet. The suspension lowers the total driving height by a total of 15 mm for better overall handling dynamics. The factory wheels and tires were both removed for new forged Porsche wheels in a wider 9.5 x 20 front and 11.0 x 20 rear mounting with corresponding sports tires and a slick matt black finish. Behind the wheels are newly painted gold brake calipers that contrast the black finish on each wheel.
Customers have a wide range of options with Panamera in terms of interior design. Especially leather with quilted design can be installed with soft alcantara on seating, dashboard, doors and console areas. New carbon fiber trim, custom watches, along with colored gauges can be installed as well. The UK company will also build all kinds of custom accessories for customers.
