Earlier this year, German tuner TechArt presented the GrandGT Supreme, a luxurious take on the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo.
Such a flashy build with a flamboyant all-leather interior might not cater to everyone’s tastes, though. Enter TechArt’s new Panamera Sport Turismo tuning project, the GrandGT Selective. Envisioned as the Supreme’s sporty alter ego, it combines a handcrafted interior that abounds in Alcantara, with an exterior rich in carbon fiber.
On the outside, the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo features many full carbon fiber attachments that enhance its looks. Those include the aero hood, mirror caps, and rear panel. In addition, TechArt has spiced up the Porsche wagon with carbon-coated highlights.
Consisting of front and rear aprons, extensions, front splitter, diffuser, and air outlet panel, they combine to give the Panamera Sport Turismo a more aggressive look. Other styling tweaks include the titanium tailpipes with carbon fiber coating, the 22-inch Formula V alloys, and the two-part paintwork combining a matt black paint with high-gloss riviera blue accents.
Things are looking spectacular inside too, as the GrandGT Selective adopts a 2+2 bi-color Alcantara interior that echoes the bodywork’s paint scheme.
The cabin is mostly black, but it features an array of riviera blue accents, especially on the driver’s side. Everything is lined with Alcantara with decorative stitching, even the floor. High-gloss black decorative parts round off the interior upgrades.
As with the GrandGT Supreme, the GrandGT Selective benefits from the TechArt Techtronic Powerkit for the Panamera Turbo. Consequently, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8’s output increases from 550 PS (542 hp) to 640 PS (631 hp).
Peak torque rises as well, from 770 Nm (568 lb-ft) to 900 Nm (664 lb-ft). As a result, the tuned Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 306 km/h (190 mph).
Interestingly, there’s more to come from TechArt when it comes to the Porsche Panamera. The tuner will unveil a power kit for the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid at the Essen Motor Show in December.
