The new Panamera may have just debuted, but that won't keep Porsche's strong legion of aftermarket tuners from doing what they do best. Already two of the biggest and most prominent have released tuning packages for the new four-door sedan, and a horsepower war has ensued.
9ff was one of the first to release its plan for the Panamera, before the car was even out. The tuning house behind the Veyron-battling GT9 supercar has a three-stage program for the Panamera Turbo (pictured at right), offering power in 550, 600 and 650 horsepower increments, besting the stock turbo's output of 500.
Gemballa is firing back with a take on the Panamera which it calls the Mistrale, pictured above. The company that made its name tuning the top-of-the-line Carrera GT just released details on its own Panamera upgrades, including a boost in output up to 750 horsepower, plus an air suspension and upgraded brakes. Both the 9ff and Gemballa Panameras offer their own suite of aerodynamic enhancements, interior upgrades and 22" wheels, and are fighting hard for their slice of what is sure to become a big a very big pie.
