When there’s a car that’s as popular as the Porsche Panamera , it’s not surprising that so many aftermarket companies are determined to put their own stamp on it. Whether its through a new aerodynamic body kit or a performance upgrade, tuning companies love to fawn over these types of vehicles. Such is the life of the Panamera these days.
The latest tuning program for the luxury sports saloon from Porsche comes courtesy of Vorsteiner. The German tuning firm has released their new V-PT body kit for the Panamera, one that includes a plethora of materials made using carbon fiber and finished in multiple layers of UV-inhibiting automotive clear laquer.
Among the items included in the V-PT body kit include a new front bumper cover with a splitter and a removable carbon fiber with an optional carbon fiber duct to go along with it. There are also new side skirts, a new ‘ducktail’ rear spoiler, and a rear bumper. Speaking of the rear bumper, Vorsteiner made one that combines three pretty important components: two vertical ventilation slits that help in extracting heat from behind the Panamera’s wheel arches and exhaust system; a carbon fiber diffuser; and a Vorsteiner-developed sub-panel.
Finally, Vorsteiner also made changes to the Panamera’s exhaust system, taking out the factory-issued part and putting in a V-PT sports exhaust system that can be built with a choice of either stainless steel or titanium, the latter offering 40% of weight savings compared to the stock-issued exhaust system.
The Panamera has been reworked and reprogrammed so many times in its short life span, but for a car that’s as popular as this one, there’s never a case of having one too many.
