They say that out of all five senses, a man’s hearing would be the last one he loses. Thank God for that. Otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to appreciate Hennessey Performance’s dyno testing of a Porsche Panamera Turbo, which is precisely what they’re doing in this two-minute video.

The tuned-up Panamera Turbo is far from a finished product, but by the sheer sound of that engine – and all of that 419 horsepower at work – it’s comforting to know that these guys are on the right track. We must add that they are well on their way to making a tuned-up Panamera that will probably go down as one of the best ever.

It’s definitely says something when all these tuners are taking stabs at upgrading a Panamera. We’re just saying...

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

The Cross titanium cat back for my M3 is around $5K.Even around $3K for an E63 AMG Eisenmann steel muffler only setup. You could always get something like Magma flow if the price is too high.

I plan to add either a Panamera Turbo or a GTR to my collection for a daily driver.
But, NOT until these ridiculous premiums are gone.

Well, if it’s a test car or something, then it wouldn’t be long before they actually bring it to a mass production. Which, we all hope that they soon do. I wonder how many tests they actually give cars for the first unit of the models. Hopefully, it wouldn’t be as troublesome as some of the cars from Toyota.

This Panamera Turbo Porshe is so cool, and I was surprised at the back of this car because the sproiler automatically set up when the engine of this car start to run.

Sounds like a very powerful machine is going to be under the hood of this baby. I hope to see it on the streets and even on the circuit or track soon.

What an impressive performance by the panamera. Well, of course, it can’t go faster without the help of hennessey. KUDOS, to you guys.
