When it comes to unheralded tuning firms, one company that can lay claim to being underrated is Prior Design.
Sure, it doesn’t have the kind of performance modifications you’d expect from an aftermarket name as visible as Prior Design, but when it comes to aero upgrades, this company knows what it’s talking about — and then some.
One of its latest works is for the stunning Porsche Panamera , the German automaker’s luxury sports saloon. Since it first entered production a few years ago, the Panamera has become one of the most popular Porsche models in the market, and those that already have one to call their own should pay careful attention to Prior Design’s new PRIOR600 body kit.
The kit is as comprehensive as anything Prior Design has done in the past. The company also made use of a Dura-Flex Fiber Reinforced Plastic, a material that’s characterized by an excellent surface finish, providing sufficient flexibility with high stability that should improve the Panamera’s handling characteristics.
A new front bumper is one of the highlights of the PRIOR600 program, completely retooling the Panamera’s looks, while also adding a larger grille that sends more air to the engine. The rear bumper is also new, serving equal purpose as its front counterpart, while a new hood, side skirts and a rear spoiler round out all the aero changes Prior gave the German brand’s resident luxury vehicle.

Since debuting a few years ago as Porsche’s resident luxury sports saloon, the Porsche Panamera has definitely captured many hearts and minds in the industry.
It’s design didn’t endear itself to a significant amount of the population, but as Porsche’s four-door sedan , there’s no denying that power and function were placed as premium qualities for the German vehicle.
The Panamera also has a multitude of engine options at its disposal, including a 4.0-liter V-8 engine that can produce as much as 520 horsepower and 516 pound-feet of torque to go with a 0-to-60 mph time of just 3.8 seconds with a top speed of 160 mph.
