Porsche Panamera Personalization Program
Buying a new Porsche is invariably a costly proposition. But the list price, as anyone who's gone through the order process could tell you, is only the tip of the proverbial iceberg, the options list stretching on for an Autobahn mile with the sky as the limit. The latest example covers the Panamera with a series of add-ons for the well-healed customer.
First up is the Powerkit package for the top-of-the-line Panamera Turbo, which squeezes an extra 40 horsepower and 37 lb-ft of torque from the turbocharged engine for a total 540 and 553. Not enough? Put 'er into Sport Plus mode and it'll boost torque up to 590, completing a 3.9-second sprint to 62 mph and a 190 mph top speed.
There's also a Sport Design Package that upgrades the aerodynamics package and the wheels. All at a cost, of course: $21,730 (over the cost of the Panamera Turbo) for the Powerkit and $4590 for the Sport Design Package, in this case.
