We’ve gotten accustomed to some pretty intense tuning work done on the Porsche Panamera so it was a little surprising that the latest aftermarket company to make a program for the sports sedan erred on the side of subtlety.

German tuner, Schmidt Revolution, used a Panamera 4S for its latest work, using a software optimization to bump up the output of the sport saloon’s 4.8-liter V8 engine from 400 horsepower and 368 lb/ft of torque up to 425 horsepower and 394 lb/ft of torque. Schmidt Revolution also lowered the car’s ride height by 40mm while also putting in a set of 22” alloy wheels wrapped in 265/30 R22 tires at the front and 305/25 R22 tires at the back. According to the German tuning company, an elaborate interior program, complete with bespoke leathers and trim, is also in the woodwork, although details are being withheld for a later date.

From what we know, pricing for the disclosed options are as follows: €990 ($1,443) for the engine upgrade, €390 ($568) for the suspension module, and €4,900 ($7,141) for the wheel-and-tire set-up.

We’ll be sure to keep you posted as more details of Schmidt Revolution’s program for the Porsche Panamera become available.

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

@Mariamargarita. If they will upgrade the output of the car, it will be not be a luxury sports car anymore. I agree that the exterior of the car is cool. You will barely notice that it is a Porsche production because of the headlights.

The styling was great and impressive! It seems that Schmidt Revolution has made a gorgeous modification in the exterior of the car! However, its kind of sad that they haven’t upgrade the car into a more impressive output!

Well, I guess it would be better to less consider this car for there are a lot of Postie future car lined up for production! It seems that this car manufacturer focused more in the 911 and gt3 version.

Agreed, That this vehicle is no that impressive! And I think although it was featured in Top Gear, still its not clear to me if they want to praise this car or what?

Well, I really don’t think that this vehicle has an impressive performance. The Turbo in this car is quite useless I think its not that effective for the power output of this vehicle.

:I was wondering on why there are a lot of aftermarket version of this vehicle though it doesn’t sell good! And BTW, I think its engine is not powerful using the v8 technology . Sorry guys, but IMO this is just a pointless creation.

I bet with the fresher look of the M5 series no doubt that it could actually compete against the luxurious styling of this vehicle. Panamera doesn’t have a good sale compare to the M series. This car is just good to be displayed in the showroom.

hehe. Yeah, I have to agree they are not a best selling car! No Panamera running in the road not even in the NYC. I think this is just a waste of effort and time!

too bad that we have seen a lot of aftermarket version of this car though we haven’t seen them on the road!it seems that they are still in the showroom waiting for spring!

I like the aftermarket version of this car and I think it look perfect on black. However, for a powerful tire, I don’t think that 400 hp is just enough, I was looking forward for more powerful output.

  (534) posted on 05.11.2011

Still, we have to admit that this is the most powerful sportscar in the line of the Porsche. I bet a race between the BMW M6 and Cadillac CTS, this car will definitely win!

Actually, I was expecting for more power just like Jeremy Clarkson but I think I couldn’t get it from this aftermarket company! And heck the pricing of the tire set up is larger compare to the engine upgrade!

  (445) posted on 05.4.2011

I don’t like this aftermarket company! The boost power output is not that impressive and yet the pricing for engine upgrade is kind of pricey.

I really love the tyres though it cost so high.. If I have the money I would definitely have one of this tuning kit..

I like the look of this car its so sporty with its black paint job. This aftermarket version is quite interesting.

Indeed, the Panamera is definitely one of those cars that is definitely well design from every aspect. Hope that Porsche would still be able to improve on this baby though.

Great car as expected from the Panamera it never leave us for nothing and it seems that this model has been the favorite of the aftermarket company nowadays.

Are they also setting up the upgrade on a parts basis? That one would be really a good idea so that customers would be able to choose only the parts that they want.

  (579) posted on 04.29.2011

Yeah, I think that would be a great deal to upgrade the designs of your. BTW, I just wonder how much it will cost when the whole package is added.

  (474) posted on 04.29.2011

Yeah, they definitely have made a good setup for this one. Especially the choice of engines here, it will definitely be able to handle the power output needed for this car.
