When there’s a car that’s as popular as the Porsche Panamera, it’s not surprising that so many aftermarket companies are determined to put their own stamp on it. Whether its through a new aerodynamic body kit or a performance upgrade, tuning companies love to fawn over these types of vehicles. Such is the life of the Panamera these days.

The latest tuning program for the luxury sports saloon from Porsche comes courtesy of Vorsteiner. The German tuning firm has released their new V-PT body kit for the Panamera, one that includes a plethora of materials made using carbon fiber and finished in multiple layers of UV-inhibiting automotive clear laquer.

Among the items included in the V-PT body kit include a new front bumper cover with a splitter and a removable carbon fiber with an optional carbon fiber duct to go along with it. There are also new side skirts, a new ‘ducktail’ rear spoiler, and a rear bumper. Speaking of the rear bumper, Vorsteiner made one that combines three pretty important components: two vertical ventilation slits that help in extracting heat from behind the Panamera’s wheel arches and exhaust system; a carbon fiber diffuser; and a Vorsteiner-developed sub-panel.

Finally, Vorsteiner also made changes to the Panamera’s exhaust system, taking out the factory-issued part and putting in a V-PT sports exhaust system that can be built with a choice of either stainless steel or titanium, the latter offering 40% of weight savings compared to the stock-issued exhaust system.

The Panamera has been reworked and reprogrammed so many times in its short life span, but for a car that’s as popular as this one, there’s never a case of having one too many.

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

So I guess this is the reason why Panamera has been the favorite among aftermarket company. Its easy to modified this car for its already has an impressive look and performance. However, I just wonder on why I can see few Panamera driving in the road.

It already encounter a number of many alterations and upgrade and yet they can still improve it, wait a few more months and they can see something more to add and change for a much better one.

I would say that it sound so pointless and useless. I really don’t think that an upgrading the exhaust system of this car would make it to perform faster. I was actually expecting for the added figure in the power output.

hmm. It seems that there is a competition between Mustang and Panamera as the favorite subject of aftermarket company for upgrades and enhancing its styling. Well, for this car I think this VP-T body kit is not the best offer for Porsche buyers.

I do agree that this is the most popular model of Porsche. And I’m proud to say
that it’s the favorite car among aftermarket company due to its flexibility and reliability.
