What we have here is Edo Competition's wide body Panamera Turbo that is actually trying to hide its extra width and girth (as well as its looks) in the snow. This may be quite achievable as recent snowfall over in Europe had hit record highs causing lots of havoc in most countries over there.
The blue whale-like looks are courtesy of a wide arch body kit that makes the Porsche Panamera Turbo look like it can swallow and spit out the bare shells of smaller cars via the car's quadruple exhaust pipes. It also has big fat tires on 22inch alloy rims as well as a tuned and lowered suspension setup that is quite necessary as Edo Competition has tweaked and massaged the Panamera's turbocharged 4.8liter V8 until it now makes 750hp from a 'measly' 500.
The interior of the Panamera also gets a workout. It now sports cream leather, brushed aluminium inserts and something that looks like pinstriped wood on the center console, dashboard and steering wheel. And I thought pinstripes are only suitable for a very bespoke Saville Row suit. It does bring about a sense of occasion and a whole lot of nostalgia to the Panamera's cabin, making it look like a Riva speed boat instead of a car's interior. But Edo shouldn't have stuck that 'turbo' badge at the base of the steering wheel, it makes the car look like a 1980's vacuum cleaner instead (those days every appliance had the word 'turbo' plastered over it. ts
Anyway, the verdict on the exterior of this Porsche Panamera make-over by Edo Competition stands as something brutish, vulgar and borderline distasteful. But I do know some out there would like it because it is brutish, vulgar and borderline beautiful.
The verdict on the interior is another thing though. It looks good. Aside from that little 'turbo' badging that is.
