Last seen turning the Porsche 911 Turbo into the SPR1R, Swiss tuner Sportec has turned its attention to the Panamara Turbo with the creation of two upgrade packages. The stage 1 kit bumps the standard 493 horsepower to 560, and adds 60 more pound-feet of torque for a total of 576. The underhood tweaks translate into a 0-to-62 time of 3.9 seconds, 0.3 quicker than stock. It can be yours for £2,900 ($4,626 U.S.).

The stage 2 kit adds a sport exhaust with remote-controlled butterflies to the stage 1 setup, delivering 575 hp and 598 lb-ft. You drop another 0.1 second off that 0-to-62 time, but it'll cost you more: £7,990 ($12,745 U.S.). Follow the jump for the press release and check out the gallery of photos below.

Brackley, Northamptonshire, 4th August 2010 -- APS of Brackley, UK importer for the Swiss Sportec range of exclusive vehicle enhancements, is pleased to announce the launch of a two stage performance enhancement program for the 4.8-litre, bi-turbo, four wheel drive Porsche Panamera.

From the factory, the four door Panamera produces a quoted 493 bhp / 516 lb.ft, but through careful development and testing using Sportec's state of the art dyno test cell in Hori, Switzerland, Sportec's engineers have developed a pair of upgrade packages for owners seeking additional performance.

Sportec Porsche Panamera Turbo Stage One
Sportec's Stage One conversion for the Porsche Panamera uses a bespoke Sportec ECU remap, with optimised settings for fuelling, ignition and turbo boost parameters. The results are a Panamera with a dyno proven 560 bhp @ 6150 rpm, representing a healthy power hike of 67 bhp, allied to 790 Nm (576 lb.ft) of torque at 3340 rpm, an increase of 60 lb.ft over the standard car.

On the road these performance gains endows the four door, 1970 kilogram car with far greater real world pace. In gear acceleration and mid-range urge are transformed and in private testing the Sportec Stage One upgraded Porsche Panamera has recorded a 0-100 kmh (62 mph) time of 3.9 seconds, 0.3 seconds than standard. In the interests of safety top speed is limited to 315 kmh (190 mph.)

Priced at £2900.00 fitted including VAT @ 17.5%, the Sportec Stage One upgrade for the Porsche Panamera Turbo is on sale now from sole UK concession APS of Brackley.

Sportec Porsche Panamera Stage Two
Sportec's Stage Two conversion for the Panamera turbo features the addition of a cat back stainless steel sports exhaust system, which features quad 90mm diameter Sportec engraved tail pipes, for a subtle, understated look. It also features a pair of 'sound throttles,' which enable the owner to define and switch the exhaust note of the car in real time, using a supplied remote controller.

In combination with the revised Sportec ECU remap, the Stage Two converted Panamera delivers 575 bhp @ 5800 rpm, an improvement of 83 bhp over the factory figures, matched to 820 Nm (598 lb.ft) between 3000-4250 rpm – an impressive gain of 83 lb.ft.

This endows the Sportec Panamera with near supercar levels of speed, delivering an effortless surge of exhilarating performance from the twin turbocharged 4.8-litre V8 engine, making both overtaking and fast cruising an effortless experience. Testing has revealed that Stage Two Sportec Panamera Turbo clocks a 0-100 kmh (62mph) time of 3.8 seconds, with the same limited top speed of (315 kmh) 190 mph.

Priced at £7990.00 fitted including VAT @ 17.5%, the Sportec Stage Two upgrade for the Porsche Panamera Turbo is on sale now from sole UK concession APS of Brackley.

A full range of exclusive Sportec upgrades for the facelift Porsche Panamera range, including 22 inch forged alloy wheels, suspension and braking upgrades, as well as cosmetic enhancements, is also on sale now.

      Anyone notice that g-string spoiler? What's the point??

      Methinks they waited until the sky was the exact same colour as the car before they took that picture.

      I don't think these aftermarket guys "get it"... the stock Panamera is already shockingly quick. It doesn't "need" more speed.... it's a new rump that it needs more than anything else.

      I go to a cars and coffee morning here in Southern California every Saturday morning, I don't think anybody would have the guts to show up in a Panamera, not because it looks ugly but because people would tell the truth about how they felt about ... or maybe nobody would park next to it. I have to agree that Porsche have made the "thing" perform, I watched "Top Gear", but this is fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down, there is no getting by the looks, it's so Teutonically ugly! Porsche does need to find a different shape, for goodness sake. Here's an idea give the platform to Pininfarina and have them get it in shape ... Porsche your design dept sucks ... this could have been exciting, instead you've manage to pass on bland and go straight to yeeuck!

      god that car is blisteringly quick! Nice job Sportec

      say what you want about how the car looks but you HAVE to repsect the way Porsche can make miracles happen.

      and that color make the car look so much better imo.

        I gotta agree. I've never liked the Panamera, but this look friggin' sweet.
        • 5 Years Ago
        oh and the body kit is nice too, not to flashy but smooth and it flows well with the entire car, the wheels are beautiful too.

        basically the best tuner version of the Panamera ive seen so far, the rear actually looks nice in the picture idk it could be the color or the body kit or the wheels that make the car look like the rumps smaller but god this car is amazing!
