Porsche has updated its site with configurators for the 2011 Panamera S Hybrid and the 2011 911 GT3 RS 4.0. That means you don't have to leave the comfort of your chalet to make your next rear-engined track star or EV-assisted four-door autobahn shuttle.

Key options for the 911 GT3 RS 4.0 include Porsche's carbon ceramic brakes, a front axle lifting system so you don't scrape the splitter on speed bumps, lightweight headlamps and a lithium-ion battery that saves a few pounds over the standard unit. You can also delete the air conditioner and stereo in the interest of speed.

The Panamera gets the usual panorama of luxury appointments and go bits, too. Carbon ceramic brakes are an option as well, and, just like the 911, they cost north of $8,000. While the capillary-popping force the special clampers offer can be useful, we suspect most Panamera buyers would prefer to direct their Benjamins elsewhere.

The Panamera can be dolled up in any number of ways, with an interior option list that would embarrass Ikea. Ours would have to have the $1,000 Bose sound system, though we could live without the $5,000 Porsche Exclusive 25 Year package, which adds custom floor mats, body-color trim accents and embroidered logos to the Panamera's living quarters.

You can play with both configurators now on Porsche's website.

      Too bad the Panamera hybrid doesn't have the Burmester audio option, it makes the Bose system sound like 8-bit mono.

      I donno, once you start going north of a 911 Turbo's price you must really have to be a Porsche nut to spend that kind of coin on one of these. Don't get me wrong, I love Porsche but these prices are a little absurd for a 911.

        it´s limited and the last of its breed with the legendary, race approved GT1-Mezger engine/block). i guess this machine will be worth much more in a few years.
