Tasty tweaks for Porsche’s hy­brid Panam­era

911 Porsche World - - News And Views -

You might think the spi­ralling com­plex­ity of mod­ern Porsches puts them out of reach of tun­ing shops. That would pre­sum­ably ap­ply dou­bly to Porsche’s in­cred­i­bly com­pli­cated hy­brid mod­els. Good­ness knows how many ECUS Porsche stuffs into the Panam­era Turbo S E-hy­brid.

The an­swer? Clearly not so many as to de­feat Techart. We give you the Techart power kit for Porsche E-hy­brid mod­els. Ap­plied to the Panam­era Turbo S E-hy­brid, it in­creases the stan­dard com­bined power from 680bhp to a mon­ster 770bhp. As a con­se­quence, the zero to 62mph sprint tumbles to just 3.2 sec­onds. The top speed is 196mph.

Thanks to what Techart de­scribes as an in­ten­sive devel­op­ment and test­ing process, the power in­crease is said to re­tain op­ti­mal in­ter­ac­tion be­tween the elec­tric drive and the V8 en­gine. Of course, this wouldn’t be a Techart without a fruity ex­haust fin­ished off with four ti­ta­nium end tubes and car­bon-fi­bre jack­ets. The kit also comes with a full war­ranty for peace of mind.

What’s more, if you want some talk to match the walk, why not add the Techart Grandgt styling pack­age. High­lights in­clude a car­bon-fi­bre hood, pow­er­ful ex­tended wheel arches, con­toured side skirts and sig­nif­i­cantly wider track. At the rear, a new apron sports repo­si­tioned rear re­flec­tors and side air out­lets. But it’s the vis­ually lev­i­tat­ing dif­fuser that’s the real party piece.

The fi­nal flour­ish in­volves the new 22-inch multi-spoke For­mula V wheels. Sub­tle it ain’t. But if you ab­so­lutely, pos­i­tively have to flat­ten ev­ery­one else on the au­to­bahn, there can surely be no finer choice. Pric­ing varies de­pend­ing on pre­cise con­fig­u­ra­tion, but you can find out more from

Porsche’s hy­brid sys­tem holds no fear or se­crets for Techart’s en­gi­neers. They’ve man­aged to squeeze 770bhp from the Panam­era Turbo S
