Porsche Panamera Turbo gets boost courtesy of Techart


Posted on by + 3

Does your need for speed leave you wishing there were more options to boost power and create that exhilarating feeling you get when you are whipping past everything leaving behind blurred images of what once was? Yeah, we think Techart feels the same way. Apparently the Porsche Panamera Turbo left something to be desired in terms of horsepower so Techart took it upon themselves to create a fun little button in the center console.

What does this button do? Well, once pressed by the driver, the button allows the Panamera Turbo to get a jump of 80 horsepower. Yeah, just with the touch of a button. Pretty cool, huh? The package is called the Techtronic, or TA 070/T1, and allows the Panamera’s 4.8L V8 engine to jump from 500hp to 580hp. It also increases the torque to the top range of 830Nm at somewhere between 3200rpm and 3600rpm. This little button brings down the Turbo’s 0-60mph time to 3.8secs from 4.0 and increases its top speed from 188mph to 195mph. The 0-124mph sprint is made in 12.5seconds.

So, do you have a Porsche Panamera Turbo that you feel needs a little jumpstart? If you do then you should definitely give Techart a call. This package is available starting in August.

The Panamera is really growing on me. Saw one at the gas station yesterday and it looks pretty darn good in gray...

I always liked Techarts work, but they should all have teeth in the grille like their custom 911 turbo did (I think it was the turbo, if not I’m sorry.) For subdued awesome though, I’ll be waiting on RUF to make it their own, and I think that’s a much better fit for the Panamera.

That’s pretty cool!
