Porsche Panamera by Mansory
If thefirst Mansory tuning package for the Porsche Panamera was mostly based on improving the car’s toothy aesthetics, Mansory’s second tuning package, which it revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, is now focusing on improving the Panamera’s performances.
For the 4.8-liter engine, Mansory put in an ECU upgrade, larger turbo chargers and a stainless steel sports exhaust system, resulting in a significant spike in output for the Panamera, who thanks to the tuning package now packs an output of 690 horsepower - up from the standard 500 hp - and 850 Nm at 4800 r.p.m. This, of course, affects the Panamera’s sprint time 0 to 60 mph, which it can now do in less than 4 seconds with a top speed goes of 204 mph.
The aerodynamic kit includes: a new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights, a striking bonnet made of carbon fiber, an enormous carbon diffuser and a centrally located double end pipes. The car sits on 21-inch rims with a set of Michelin Pilot Sport tyres.

MANSORY Switzerland enhances the Porsche Panamera. The specialist for exclusive refinement of premium automobiles turns the four-door Gran Turismo into a power pack which is even more dynamic and exclusive and most of all has a significantly more distinct appearance.
Originally, the company owner Kourosh Mansory solely focused on British luxury cars, but meanwhile he has also proven his talent for Italian brands such as the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and German automobiles like the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. After the Chopster Cayenne, the Panamera is already the second Porsche which is given the honour to become entirely modified by MANSORY.
Also the latest model range from Zuffenhausen is equipped with an athletic body design in MANSORY tradition. Perfectly matching components turn the front section of the MANSORY modification into a dynamic highlight: the new front skirt with adapted LED daytime running lights in combination with the striking bonnet made of carbon fibre give the front section a distinctive character. Masculine broadenings for the wings and doors perfectly harmonise with the new side skirts. At the back of this four-door-car, an enormous carbon diffuser and the centrally located double end pipes of the sports exhaust system render a thrilling atmosphere. MANSORY decorates the originally hydraulic rear with carbon applications or entirely replaces it with a static wing profile made of carbon. The engineers produce the new aerodynamics components in high-strength polyurethane (PU-RIM) and Prepreg-Autoclav-Carbon, the characteristic material for MANSORY.
In addition to the exciting look, the MANSORY engine department developed a powerful performance enhancement for the 4.8 litre turbo engine. The kit contains an amended engine electronics, larger turbo chargers and a stainless steel sports exhaust system. Thanks to these modifications, the engine output rises to an astonishing 690 hp / 507 kW (serial: 500 hp / 368 kW) and pushes the torque to 850 Nm at 4800 r.p.m. Therefore, the 4WD-automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/ in only four seconds and achieves a top speed of 328 km/h (serial: 303 km/h).
The wheel-tyre combination has been especially designed for Porsche and renders sufficient grip: MANSORY recommends the 21-inch rim C5/1. The one-part light alloy wheels are fitted with 9.5 x 21 inch rims with Michelin Pilot Sport tyres in the dimension 265/35 ZR 21 at the front axle and 11.5 x 21 rims with tyres in the dimension 305/30 ZR 21 at the rear axle.
The latest development and highlight in the offered rim programme is an especially light 22-inch forged wheel in turbine design. At the front axle, the 9 inch wide wheels carry the high performance wheels Dunlop SP SportMaxx in the dimension 265/30ZR22 while the rear 10-inch wide wheels are equipped with tyres measuring 295/25ZR22.
