New Porsche Panamera Shows Off Widebody Kit And 22″ Wheels 10

To some people, buying an expensive car and not fitting it with a really aggressive widebody kit and large wheels, is the equivalent of being a Power Ranger and not calling upon the Megazord. In other words, it just wouldn’t be as cool.

This Panamera is wearing a TechArt GT aero kit, which adds new front and rear aprons, an integrated splitter, side skirts, rear diffuser and a large rear wing that’s fixed into place.

The standard TechArt GT also comes with black 22″ Formula IV alloys, however this one is wearing a set of dual-tone 22″ Forgiato wheels, which feature a more complex design.

Based on the stickers found on the windshield and C-pillar windows, it was put together by RDBL, and we have to say, this car certainly looks a lot more aggressive than the stock Panamera – which we imagine is what the owner was going for.

While we can’t see the interior, we know that TechArt offers fine leather and Alcantara options, as well as laquered or carbon-refined surfaces. There’s also a smaller TechArt Type-7 steering wheel available, for those who prefer a more sporty-themed experience.

Altogether, the TechArt GT kit makes the 2017 Porsche Panamera wider by approximately 80 mm (3.1 in), which may not sound like much, yet it’s definitely noticeable from all angles.

Toyota is planning to introduce a new vehicle as well as make an announcement regarding a “new hydrogen infrastructure project.” There’s no word on the latter but the mysterious Toyota will be joined by a new vehicle from Lexus.

Nissan will show its “newest entry” in the crossover segment as well as an assortment of Star Wars inspired vehicles to promote Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Chevrolet, on the other hand, will have both global and North American debuts.

Audi SQ7 And Panamera 4S D Out To Prove Diesels Are Still Cool 7

Posted by Sergiu Tudose in audi, Audi SQ7, diesel, Drag-Racing, porsche, Porsche Panamera, Top Gear, video on 11 7th, 2017


We’re a little over two years away from the 2020s and the automotive world has already planned its shift to fully-electric vehicles and advanced driver assistance systems.

Fallout from VW’s Dieselgate scandal has effected pretty much all diesel-powered cars in the world as many consumers tend to view these cars a lot differently than before.

Still, from a purely performance related standpoint, you can still have plenty of fun behind the wheel of a diesel, as long as it’s got sufficient power and torque to haul its own mass around with haste.

Starting with the Audi SQ7, it’s powered by a 4.0-liter diesel V8, good for 435 PS and a whooping 900 Nm (663 lb-ft) of torque. In a straight line, it will hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.8 seconds, which is as good as an E92 BMW M3.

As for the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel, its 4.0-liter V8 churns out a bit less power and torque, at 422 PS and 850 Nm (627 lb-ft), yet since this is a lighter car, it will sprint to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.5 seconds – make that 4.3 seconds if you get the Sport Chrono Pack.

Anyone daring enough to bet on the Audi SUV?

New Porsche Panamera Looks Even Better With Aftermarket Wheels 6

Posted by Brad Anderson in HRE, porsche, Porsche Panamera, tuning, Wheels on 11 6th, 2017


The Porsche Panamera has been in production since 2009 but it wasn’t until the second-gen model, introduced last year, that the German automaker nailed the sports sedan formula.

The first-generation Panamera was a valiant attempt but with the new model, Porsche has created appealing exterior and interior designs, a car equipped with all the luxury features you could wish for and that must-have, sports car-like performance.

So, how do you make the new Panamera even better?

Well, the owner of the following Panamera Turbo, finished in black, has done just that thanks to a set of HRE P200 wheels painted Gloss Black.

The spokes of the wheels have quite a complex design and therefore wouldn’t be to everyone’s taste. However, we think they work perfectly with the Panamera’s refined and subtle design, adding a dash of aggression and wildness.

Is Porsche’s New Panamera Turbo The Ultimate Luxury Sport Sedan? 3
Nov
Posted by Sergiu Tudose in porsche, Porsche Panamera, Porsche Videos, reviews, video on 11 3rd, 2017


Even though it’s technically not a 4-door sedan, one could easily argue that the Porsche Panamera, especially in Turbo guise, is a prime candidate for earning the crown for the sportiest luxury car in its price range.

Arguing in favor of the Panamera is Doug DeMuro, who mostly found just positives while reviewing this Turbocharged $150,000 model, borrowed from a Philadelphia-based dealership.

He not only found the latest-generation Panamera to be surprisingly practical, but also acknowledged the fact that it looks a lot better than its predecessor, and that it’s packed full of clever tech and high-quality materials, which is to be expected in a Porsche.

On the road, the new Panamera Turbo is sharp and accelerates as well as can be expected from such a heavy car. Its 550 PS (542 HP) and 770 Nm (567 lb-ft) of torque send it from zero to 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.8 seconds.

In the end, DeMuro ranked the 2017 Panamera Turbo as the best car he’s ever tested from a ‘Daily’ standpoint. Its overall “DougScore” put it in 7th place overall, between the Audi R8 V10 Plus and the Tesla Model X.

Porsche's all-new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo might have 670 horses running wild under its hood, but at the same time, it's as civilized as a Miele kitchen.

Or so Stuttgart wants us to believe through their latest commercial, which, as many YouTube commentators cheekily pointed out, would have felt right at home in any of Christopher Nolan's Dark Knight flicks.
