2020 Porsche Cayenne Nebulus by BLACK BOX-RICHTER
With the arrival of super SUVs like the Lamborghini Urus, Bentley Bentayga, and Rolls-Royce Cullinan, the Porsche Cayenne Turbo now faces stiff competition from all corners of the market. The high-powered German SUV still commands plenty of respect and attention, but in those moments when it meets any of these new upstarts, a little aftermarket help wouldn’t be so bad to have. This program, in particular, offers a glimpse of what a Porsche Cayenne Turbo could end up as if enough aftermarket support goes into it. Mind you, this isn’t a one-tuner job; this is the work of several outfits, all coming together to build what could very well be one of the most impressive Cayenne Turbos on the market. There’s a heavy price to pay for this kind of work, but rest assured, German tuner HGP Turbo, Austrian vinyl wrap maker Black Box-Richter, clothing brand Nebulus, and designer Hajo Lemke of EightElevan Design developed a monster program for the Porsche Cayenne Turbo.
Porsche Is Preparing Another Facelift For The Recently Updated Macan
The first-generation Porsche Macan was launched in 2014, which means that it’s six years old as of 2020. Given that modern car life cycles take five to six years, it’s about time for a redesign. But it seems Porsche wants to keep the current Macan on the market a while longer. At least that’s what a set of new spy shots we just received suggest.
2021 Porsche Panamera GTS
2021 marks the introduction of a revamped version of the Porsche Panamera. The improvements span across the entirety of trim levels, from the base six-cylinder version, through the GTS, all the way to the Turbo and Hybrid versions of the sports saloon. The GTS package has always been the perfect balancing point between performance and comfort, for all Porsche models. This is especially true for the Panamera, as the main purpose of a sports saloon is to balance these two aspects, in particular. The 2021 Panamera GTS does this balancing act and more.
2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S
It’s been a busy past month for the Porsche Panamera. Porsche’s sporty sedan lapped the Nürburgring in 7:29.81, claiming the executive class lap record, occasion that also marked the debut of the revised 2021 model.
New for 2021 in the Panamera stable is the 4S E-Hybrid cranking out 552 horsepower as well as the hotter, 620-horsepower Panamera Turbo S. It’s the latter we’ll be discussing today.
Porsche Eyeballing a Panamera EV As a Larger Alternative to the Taycan
When the Taycan was unveiled, a lot of folks called it the electric Panamera because of how similar they both look. When the real-world reviews started pouring in, it was known the Taycan is smaller than Panamera in terms of dimensions. But, with electrification taking over every segment and every car, there was a big question surrounding the Panamera’s electric version and how it would slot with the Taycan in the lineup if a Panamera electric would even happen.
Speaking with GoAuto, Porsche’s Product Line Vice President, Thomas Friemuth, cleared some air on both these questions by saying that an electric Panamera is being considered, but also hinted that it won’t overlap the Taycan. Does this mean the electric Panamera will be the flagship e-model for Porsche?
The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Could Be the Most Powerful Road-Going Porsche Ever
The 2021 Porsche Panamera arrived last week, and it has stirred the lineup heavily. Four years into the current-gen, the Panamera’s facelift includes a number of changes outside and a few on the inside, but the biggest change came in form of a new Turbo S model, which replaced the Panamera Turbo. The extra power boost over its predecessor was good news, but that’s not the end of it. The company is working on the hybrid version of this model, and it could be the most powerful road-going Porsche, beating the 911 GT2 RS to take the apex position in the lineup.
There’s a Strong Business Case For A Two-Door Porsche Panamera
It’s been more than a decade since the idea and rumors of a two-door Porsche Panamera – one that would serve as a spiritual successor to the Porsche 928 – was in the works. Yet, here we are in the incredibly dark year that is 2020, and Porsche has yet to morph the Panamera into a proper two-door. The same can be said for a carbio model which has also been said to be in the works for quite a while now. I’m not here to tell you that it’s happening yet, but I can make one hell of a business case for why such a model will work, and Porsche hasn’t abandoned the idea yet.
Porsche’s Second Electric Car Delayed By At Least a Year
When we first saw the Porsche Mission E Cross Turismo Concept back in 2018, the expectation was set that it would launch in late 2020. Once the Porsche Taycan launched, and we knew Porsche had perfected its technology (if that’s what you would call less than 250 miles of range), we really expected the Cross Turismo to come quickly after, as expected in 2020. As it turns out, Porsche has been forced to delay the Cross Turismo, but according to Porsche, it’s not a casualty of the Pandemic.
Porsche Just Gave the 2021 Panamera An Update Worthy of Praise
The second-generation Porsche Panamera was unveiled in 2016, so 2020 is the perfect time for a mid-cycle facelift. Porsche just unveiled the updated Panamera with extensive changes on the outside, a mildly upgraded interior, and a couple of new engines. Porsche also changed a couple of trim designations, replacing the old Turbo with a Turbo S model.
Porsche Just One-Upped Tesla’s Cheetah Mode With the Taycan’s Launch Control
Porsche has updated the Taycan for the 2021 model year and announced a bunch of changes. The update includes new exterior shades, convenient charging, flexible convenience upgrades, a better head-up display, and so on. The most noteworthy change on the list, however, is the upgraded Launch Control. Launch Control has made the Taycan even quicker, and it takes the Taycan one step ahead against Tesla’s Cheetah Stance. How about that!
Porsche Panamera Turbo Laps the Nurburgring in 7.29.81, But It’s Not The Fastest Sedan
Porsche just confirmed that the next-generation Panamera Turbo lapped the Nurburgring Nordschleife in 7:29.81 minutes, which is a new record in Nurburgring’s official raking for "executive cars." However, despite previous rumors, the next-gen Panamera Turbo isn’t the quickest four-door sedan on the German track.
Porsche Panamera Turbo Facelift Goes For Nurburgring Record
An updated version of the current-generation Porsche Panamera Turbo is underway, and it seems that the German carmaker wants to introduce it with a new Nurburgring record. Our paparazzi spotted a slightly camouflaged version of the sedan doing laps on the ’Ring with Porsche taking on-track photos. This suggests a publicity stunt for the upcoming Panamera, but there’s no indication of how quick the new sedan is. However, rumors from last year say that the Panamera Turbo lapped the Nordschleife in seven minutes and 11 seconds, which is a new record for four-door vehicles.
