An athletic appearance, increased performance and maximum individuality in the interior. TECHART leaves nothing to be desired with the GrandGT finishing program. With the TECHART GrandGT customization options, the Leonberg-based Porsche refiner presents a real power program for the Porsche Panamera models. This includes performance increases of up to 180 PS and 150 Newton meters for the Porsche Panamera GTS and 90 PS and 130 Newton meters for the Porsche Panamera Turbo S. With the TECHART Powerkit, a total of 720 PS and 950 Newton meters are available for the Panamera Turbo S.
GrandGT performance and styling
A striking design and a track that is 80 mm wider characterize the athletic appearance of the GrandGT exterior range. With the impressive Aerokit, the emotionality of the Panamera models is significantly sharpened compared to the series vehicles. With the wheel designs Formula VI, Formula V and Daytona II, Panamera enthusiasts can choose from three spectacular TECHART forged wheels.
In the interior, TECHART interior manufacture refines the Panamera models individually according to customer requirements, with a high luxury or sporty trim - from the headliner to the footwell.
Confident appearance all around. The TECHART GrandGT styling package.
Wide-flared wheel arches and a striking front apron with large air inlets and an integrated splitter dominate the impressive front section. The aerodynamic front spoiler II ensures an optimized flow of charge air coolers and cooling of the brake system. Pure sportiness also applies to the optional TECHART aero hood made of carbon. The front is set in scene with two athletic tendons and an indicated power dome with a central air outlet. The dynamic lines are also continued in the side view with integrated extensions. Overhanging side skirts and a significantly wider track on the front and rear axles by 50 mm and 80 mm respectively strengthen the unique GrandGT character.
Impressive air outlets behind the flared fenders as well as the rear diffuser with four pronounced fins and titanium twin tailpipes with carbon sheathing round off the powerful appearance of the GrandGT at the rear. As is typical for TECHART, the sport sedan has a fixed rear spoiler, optionally painted in carbon fiber or painted in the color of the vehicle, which gives the sporty impression to the outside.
Power upgrades with up to 180 hp more power for the Panamera models.
In terms of driving dynamics, TECHART equips the Panamera Turbo S and Panamera GTS with a remarkable increase in performance. The heart of this is the TECHART TECHTRONIC engine management. It provides the Porsche Panamera Turbo S with an additional 66 kW (90 PS) at the push of a button in Sport mode, while the maximum torque increases by 130 Newton meters to 950 Newton meters.
The power upgrade for the Panamera GTS is particularly impressive with an additional power reserve of 134 kW (180 hp) and a torque increase of 150 Newton meters. With the TECHART Powerkit, the sprint from 0 to 100 km / h takes 3,4 seconds, half a second faster than the production model. Even more impressive is the sprint from 0 to 200 km / h, which at just 12,3 seconds is over three seconds shorter than that of the production vehicle.
The installation of the performance enhancement takes place within a short time by any authorized TECHART sales partner, without interfering with the standard control software.
Less weight, more style: three unique wheel designs for the GrandGT.
In conjunction with the GrandGT Aerokit, the Panamera can be equipped with three wide TECHART light alloy wheel designs. With filigree spokes, low weight and particularly sporty styling, the TECHART Formula VI forged wheel in 22 inches clearly sets the Panamera apart from the production model. The tire dimensions are 285/30 ZR 22 at the front and 335/25 ZR 22 at the rear and thus ensure a maximum level of grip and improved steering behavior. The 22-inch TECHART Formula V multi-spoke wheel implements the unmistakable TECHART wheel design in a turbine-like look in a particularly sporty way. The expressive TECHART Daytona II reinterprets an iconic TECHART design from the past and is a real eye-catcher. Developed further with modern forging technology, the 22-inch wheel fills the wider wheel arches beautifully.
TECHART offers numerous options for further customization for all bikes and thus maximum freedom for unique color matching to your own vehicle. This includes designs in single or multi-colored paintwork, which are available with a gloss-turned face or colored accents on request. Regardless of the brake system installed, the brake caliper color can also be individually designed with a high-temperature-resistant coating.
Sportiness and maximum individuality in the interior.
The TECHART interior manufacture opens up numerous customization options in the design of the Panamera interiors. The interior can be upgraded to the desired extent with high-quality materials and special accents. This includes, for example, a sporty mix of perforated leather and Alcantara®. A real highlight is the honeycomb perforation, which is precisely stamped in leather, as well as a leather underlaid in a light contrasting color. In different light conditions, a unique shimmer effect is created. The TECHART manufactory offers endless design possibilities for the leather perforation.
A colored piping accentuates the seats as well as foot and trunk mats also set the Panamera interior apart from the production model. The mix of Alcantara® and leather in the processing of the seats and the leather seat back shell also emphasize the modern character of the TECHART range for the Panamera models. The iconic TECHART lettering refines the seats as embroidery in the right color, as well as the breast strips and floor mats with high-quality embossing.
Another specialty of TECHART Manufaktur is the refinement and customization of steering wheels by hand. The decorative screws and the driving mode switch can be painted to match the individual color concept. Due to the coordination of lacquered parts and segments made of leather, Alcantara® and carbon fiber, perforations, decorative piping and hand-made seams, there are no limits to customer requirements. Standard features of the basic steering wheel such as multifunction, shift paddles or steering wheel heating are of course retained.
