German tuner JE Design has released their take on the Porsche Panamera featuring a new body kit, stainless steel exhaust system, performance upgrade and new wheel set.
The aero kit fitted to the Panamera incudes a new front skirt with integrated daytime driving lights/marker lights and blinking LEDs. In addition, the custom-fitting skirt has central vent openings. The side skirts with air inlets and rear skirt with diffuser and central air outlet are combined with a fixed rear spoiler, replacing the stock version.
JE Design offers a stainless steel cat-back exhaust system including valve control, but only for petrol engines. The stainless steel exhaust system without valve control is available for the diesel model. Each of the four round tailpipes has a diameter of 100 millimeters.
The air-suspension on the Panamera lowers the chassis by between 20 and 30 millimeters. Customers can electronically adjust the Porsche’s pneumatic suspension. The light alloy rims with Pandora design fitted under the Panamera have matt black spokes and stainless steel surrounds. They are available in 9 and 10.5×22 inch variations. The complete wheel set comes with 265/30R22 and 295/25R22 tires.
Power increase packages for the Panamera Diesel and the Panamera Turbo are also available. The additional control unit increases the standard power from 250bhp to 300bhp, while the maximum torque of the 3.0 liter, six cylinder diesel increases from 550Nm to 650Nm. With these new levels of power, the Panamera Diesel can accelerate from 0-60 mph within 6.5 seconds (compared with 6.8 secs for the series model). The top speed increases from 150 to 155mph.
The Panamera Turbo is even faster. JE Design has boosted the power of the eight-cylinder twin-turbo engine with its 4.8 liter cylinder capacity to 600bhp by installing an additional control unit. This amounts to an increase of 100bhp in comparison to the power of the standard series model. The standard model’s 700Nm of torque is increased to 850 Newton meters as a result of the modified control electronics. This reduces the 0-60 mph acceleration time from 4.2 to 3.8 secs. The top speed of 188mph remains unchanged.
