Available on the Panamera Turbo, the powerkit package adds a recalibrated ECU and two new turbochargers with titanium-alloy turbine wheels. As a result, the V8 engine's output is lifted from 500HP to 540HP and torque from 700Nm to 750Nm. Porsche says that in Sport Plus mode, the Panamera Turbo with the Powerkit accelerates from 0 to 100km/h in 3.9 seconds, or 0.1 sec faster than the standard car. Top speed rises from 303km/h to 305 km/h. According to the company, fuel consumption remains the same as that of the 500HP model at 11.5 litre/100km.
Moving onto the Sport Design Package, which will be available on all Panamera models in October, includes a unique body-colored front end with wider black air intake grilles, more sculpted side skirts as well as body-colored rear underbody apron with diffuser and fins.
Other options released by Porsche include a newly designed set of 20-inch sport wheels.
