9ff Porsche Panamera – Click above for high-res image gallery

For better or worse, the new Panamera promises to open doors to new markets for Porsche – and for Porsche tuners, for that matter. But 9ff isn't about to let Gemballa have all the fun. The tuning house responsible for the berserk GT9 supercar, with its Bugatti Veyron-rivalling capabilities, announced its Panamera tuning program even before Porsche unveiled the car, and has now revealed initial details and another round of renderings.

Predictably for power-hungry 9ff, the alphanumeric tuner starts with the Turbo model and upgrades in stages. The PT-55 gives the Panamera Turbo an ECU upgrade and new air filters to boost output up from 500 to 550 horsepower. The PT-60, as you might have guessed, offers 600 horsepower courtesy of a fresh exhaust with sport catalytic converters. Finally, the PT-65 packs (anybody? anybody?) 650 horsepower by fitting new turbos, as well as a full aero kit. 9ff says it will offer 22-inch three-piece wheels and a host of interior upgrades as well. Check out the renderings in the gallery below.

      that's the best rendering they could do for the wheels?
        • 5 Years Ago
        That's what I was thinking. They look ugly and poorly done.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I saw that front bumper and TOTALLY thought GT-R. And who's the idiot that rendered those wheels?

      The PT 55 has 550 HP ... Not 500 (500 is serial), it gets ECU upgrade and Exhaust system, The PT60 has 600 HP ... ECU upgrade exhaust manifolds exhaust system, The PT 65 has 650 HP, ECU upgrade, exhaust manifold, new turbochargers and a valve exhaust system with sound adjustment.

      Well... atleast it doesn't look worse. But not much have changed except the hood and front-spoiler?

        "The styling kit is made up of a new front bumper which optimises air flow. There's a new front lip fitted to improve performance at high speed, redesigned side skirts and a new rear bumper. A larger rear diffuser is flanked by four tailpipes, two on either side. 9ff nameplates are evident in the 9ffPT-65 over a number of areas including a engine cover and illuminated door sill protectors. Familiar 9ff wheels in 22-inch size are furnished."

      • 5 Years Ago
      9ff = 9x 'effn fugly than the std Panamera.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Only 50 horsepower?
        • 5 Years Ago
        PT55= 50hp , PT60=100hp, PT65=150hp

        Red it wrong, but the 9ff wheels do look good on it.
      • 5 Years Ago
      ... by the way ... I think that my renderings are not that bad ... I did them in a short time.

      It does look better, I just don't like the wheels, they seem pretty weird.
      • 5 Years Ago
      it looks fine but..... wouldn't changing the front facia so drastically cause the Panamera to lose its public "Porsche" identity? When I look at the front of the Panamera in a previous blog I immediatly identify the Porsche styling cues, with this version my first impression of the front only, was some sort of Audi. All the other bits are very good. Maybe if I had one for a period of time and became throughly jaded I wouldn't care, it's the peasant in me that wants my Porsche to look like a Porsche I suppose.

        well... The original already looks like a pregnant C6 Corvette. Now it looks like a prenant hibrid of C6 and a Nissan GTR. So much for brand identity...
      • 5 Years Ago
      wow, checkout those 2 dimensional wheels!

      "Finally, the PT-65 packs (anybody? anybody?) 650 horsepower by fitting new turbos, as well as a full aero kit."

      So... the body kit adds, what, 50 hp? lol
        • 5 Years Ago
        needs a "Type R" emblem for the 50 HP.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Or a Ferrari badge.
