Porsche performance speaks for itself and can now be even sportier with aerodynamic, exterior upgrades from JE Design, a German car tuning company.
Modifications on the power increase it to 300 BHP (Panamera Diesel) or 600 BHP (Panamera Turbo). JE Design Alterations include a front skirt design that optimizes intercooler air in-flow along with a fixed spoiler, replacing the extendable rear spoiler and with a complete rear skirt, with central air outlet, and diffuser.
Aiding in the handling of this soon to be classic is an electronically-adjusted, pneumatic air suspension system, which lowers the car's chassis by 20 to 30 mm. Not to mention the 22" alloy rims using Pandora design.
Daytime driving lights, with blinking LEDs have been integrated into the double-bar grill.
The Panamera, with its 4.8 liter, V8 twin, turbo engine guarantees Porsche performance. It has a seven-speed PDK, which is standard in all models. In addition it has Porsche Traction Management (PTM), Automatic Brake Differential (ABD), Anti-Slip Regulation (ASR), and Direct Fuel Injection (DFI).
It includes Auto Start and Stop functionality, and VarioCam Plus, resulting in instant acceleration, and a smoother driving experience.
The fixed spoiler takes the Panamera in a sportier direction, along with its rear skirt, which has a removable covering integrated, for towing purposes. The Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) is retained, along with its three programs: Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus.
Turbo or Diesel
Power packages for the Panamera Diesel and Turbo are also available. The diesel accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 6.5 seconds, with a top speed of 155 mph. The Panamera Turbo, using the JE Design control unit can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 188 mph.
The interior of the Porsche Panamera is roomy, and can be customized to be sporty, luxurious, or both. Some of the features include seating for four on smooth-finish leather, with seat warmer and controls. It also has an elevated center console for front and rear passengers along with fully electric seats, with integrated headrests.
Passenger and driver get pampered not just by simply sitting in one of these cars, if you like music, you’ll enjoy the Burmester and Bose Surround Sound Systems. You take your work on the road, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system and the Mobile phone / Bluetooth connections allow you easy access to the rest of the world.
All of these extras are helped by a controlled ambient atmosphere aided by Climate control and Tinted, heat-insulated glass. Not to forget the driver, this 2012 JE Design Porsche Panamera has Park Assist and Reversing Camera, Lane Change Assist, and
Adaptive Cruise Control.
