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