Mansory Porsche Panamera - Click above for high-res image gallery

Mansory isn't one to shy away from the controversial. The creative minds at the Swiss tuning company have come up with with everything from a pink Bentley Continental GT to a gold-clad Mercedes-Benz McLaren SLR. So perhaps it's no surprise that they have turned their attention to Porsche's not-so-traditional Panamera. Mansory is planning to release an aerodynamic kit for the four-door grand tourer that the company says gives the car a more "masculine" appearance. Other available components will include 21-inch wheels, a sport exhaust system, and a variety of wood, carbon fiber, and aluminum interior accessories. Full details can be found in Mansory's press release after the jump, or you can check out the renderings in the gallery below.

PRESS RELEASE:

Masculine appearance for the Porsche Gran Turismo

MANSORY Switzerland enhances the Porsche Panamera. The specialist for exclusive refinement of premium automobiles turns the four-door Gran Turismo into a power pack which is even more dynamic and exclusive and most of all has a significantly more distinct appearance.

Originally, the company owner Kourosh Mansory solely focused on British luxury cars, but meanwhile he has also proven his talent for Italian brands such as the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and automobiles like the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren. After the Chopster Cayenne, the Panamera is already the second Porsche which is given the honour to become entirely modified by MANSORY.

Also, the new Porsche will receive an individual design language according to the MANSORY tradition. Its engineers produce the new aerodynamics components in high-strength polyurethane (PU-RIM) and Prepreg-Autoclav-Carbon, the characteristic material for MANSORY. As the car is lowered by 35 millimetres and equipped with new wheels measuring 9,5x21 and 11,5x21 inches as well as a sport exhaust system, the new personality of the Panamera becomes significantly more visual and audible.

In order to provide the driver directly with the experience of an automobile refined by MANSORY, the engineers included extensive refinements. A widespread leather interior can be individually matched with the most precious woods, finest varnish or dynamic carbon. The pedals made of brushed aluminium perfect the interior equipment. With the newly designed sports steering wheel, the driver can feel the elegance of the refined Porsche straight in his hands.

MANSORY Switzerland bestows an individual appearance to the Porsche Panamera. The complex refinement turns a sports car for journeys into a characteristic personality – after all a real MANSORY.

      The first Man-Sorry I actually like!
        • 5 Years Ago
        agreed. the only thing i dont really like are those LEDs on the front bumper. and the hood looks kind of funky.. besides the LEDs though, i like it. can't wait to see the finished product.
        • 5 Years Ago
        Completely agree. And it actually made the panamera look BETTER !!!

      very aggressive, very nice!

      I think this mod makes this car look fantastic on that front 3/4 shot. However, that rear-end is awful and nothing can be done about it. It's sexy as hell on the Cayman, but it is def not a sedan rear-end

      I may be ostracized after this post but I think this mod looks rather nice. But then I think that Panamera is the best looking Porsche ....

        Ostracization in progress!

      I just want to know why they have used the exact same virtual setting that was used by Maserati for the release images of the GranCabrio - sample here

      I'm all for whatever it takes to make this car look better but this is not it. Imagine having to wash the bugshiat out of that grill!

      I have been invited by the local Porsche dealership next week for some special preview of the Panamera so I guess I will get to see firsthand if this thing is ugly or not.
      It has been growing on me.

      Is it the wheel arches or the body kit that make this work, sort of? The arches seem to make the Panamera look lower. Better proportions.

      they're on to something with that aggressive tesla-ish front end. god forbid Porsche changes their design after 60 years and picks up something new.

      however, no amount of modifications can change the disastrous shape and proportion of the back end. and again, porsche would probably sooner jump in a fire than dare give one of their cars a three-volume layout like the Quattroporte.

      What the Panamera should have looked like.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Beer bellies and excessive chest hair is the last thing this car needs.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Looks like a Scirocco...
