2012 Porsche Panamera Mistrale by Gemballa

In 2011, German tuner, Gemballa , presented us with their new tuning program for the Porsche Panamera . Called the Mistrale , the modified luxury Porsche saloon was nothing short of remarkable. This year, those guys are headed back to Geneva with a reworked Mistrale, one that comes with a slight bump in horsepower from last year’s model.

Aesthetically, the Mistrale’s aerodynamic program appears to remain intact with all the major external carbon fiber body components still present in the project. The carbon fiber bonnet is still there, as are the doors, the front wings, and the front and rear bumpers. Moreover, the Mistrale still sports a set of lightweight 22" forged alloy wheels.

The main difference between this new model and last year’s version is that the former comes with improved performance numbers. Gemballa still has a two-stage engine update available for the car with Stage 1 taking the Panamera’s twin-turbo V8 engine all the way up to 610 horsepower and 626 lb/ft of torque. Stage 2 is where the improvement lies, from the 700 horsepower and 737 lb/ft of torque numbers up to 721 horsepower.

More information about the 2012 Gemballa Mistrale should be made available when Gemballa presents the car at the 2012 Geneva Motor Show.

If I have my expertise on upgrading and tuning up the kit of Porsche cars, I might do the same thing like Gamballa.

It seems like this tuning have picked a color which fitted its figure perfectly.

@MayBack/Audilicious/BadStroller: I think you’ve got it wrong; the newer version has the improved performance number. It is evident that the added features and modifications have greatly helped considering the increase in figures.

Gemballa’s tuning has created a confusion for me. Anyhow, I guess its efficiency in performance was not affected.

As expected, this just got faster because of Gemballa’s modification to make it lightweight.

Gemballa’s so good in creating such a fierce and exotic appearance. It’s not only its appearance, anyway; its performance too.

The modification made it weigh less. Light-weight body parts combined with a dynamic engine certainly seems like this will be more efficient.

I don’t mind the decrease in the performance number. Gemballa’s tuning was like a piece of fine art. Their modifications appealed greatly to me.

The exterior is astoundingly exotic. It looks best in pearly grey, I must say.

I don’t quite understand why this has less quality in performance when they used carbon-fiber materials and alloy. Certainly, it’s not about the speed, no? Nevertheless, the engine is impressive so I probably won’t notice the difference at all.

Truthfully, I didn’t get it at first when it said they presented a more impressive performance before. Afterwards, it said there’s an increase in its power. I can’t wait to see how far it has gone since then.
