2011 Porsche Panamera P680 by Switzer Performance

Ohio-based tuning specialist, Switzer Performance, is fast making a name for itself in the aftermarket industry, having created a growing number of projects that include the Nissan GT-R E900 and the Porsche 911 GT2 .

Their latest program is for the Porsche Panamera Turbo and as you can expect, Switzer gave it a robust tuning upgrade. They added their newly developed P680 hardware on the German luxury saloon’s 4.4-liter V8 engine and its resulting output from the standard 500 horsepower and 516 lb/ft of torque to a mouth-watering 680 horsepower and right about 700 lb/ft of torque.

In addition to the P680 hardware, the added boost in output was also aided by the addition of a new intercooler system and the company’s own Siemens ECU upgrade. All in all, the Switzer-tuned Panamera Turbo is now capable of hitting 0-60 mph in a little over three seconds with a top speed of 215 mph. The whole package is now available for a base price of $22,000, which may sound like a fortune, except for the fact that it does give the Panamera enough boost to become a gnarly monster.

For that price tag, it’s good enough for us.

Well, the speed performance of the car is quite impressive. And I guess for all the luxury ca, this car have the higher boosting power. It seems that the Switzer Performance have made an awesome modification here.

The Panamera alone is not a good production. I would refer the Turbo S car for it has an impressive power output and the styling is kind of elegant! I want to see them modify the Turbo engine.

The Panamera got even better by the help of Switzer Performance. They did a great job on its performance plus the price is not that hard to afford for a tuned Porsche Panamera.

Good thing that they worked out a lot on the performance aspect of this one. Actually, the standard Panamera is already very good in this part, but Switzer definitely made it even better.

I would say that I am not really that familiar with this tuning company, but their work is definitely brilliant. From the exterior to the engine upgrades, they have it all down pat.

I really love it whenever I see a souped up Porsche every once in a while. And I would say that this one definitely belongs to that category, what with all those upgrades.

Yeah! There are a lot of modified and upgraded version that I read here and in other car review sites. And its kind of funny that I never seen much of this car runs in the road not even in NYC. It seems that these models are still in the showrooms/ garages waiting for spring!

I don’t get why Porsche is wasting their time in modifying and upgrading the Panamera though based on statistics this car never sold that much! Different models like the Panamera Turbo, Panamera S and Panamera 4S sales only ranges from 20-40 %,it’s not even near to the half!
