Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo Gets Stylish Carbon-Fiber Upgrade

Even the floor is made entirely of Alcantara.

This year’s Geneva Motor Show saw the premiere of TechArt’s GrandGT Supreme, a luxurious styling package for the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo with a striking appearance and a lavish, all-leather interior. Now, the German tuner has unveiled a sportier alternative: the GrandGT Selective, featuring a lovingly handcrafted interior and extensive use of carbon fiber applied to the exterior.

On the outside, the GrandGT Selective features an assortment of carbon fiber attachments including an aero hood, side mirrors, and rear panel. Additionally, the tuner has also added carbon-coated highlights such as a front apron, rear apron, extensions, front splitter, diffuser and air outlet panel. All these elements combine to give the German wagon a more aggressive appearance.

Rounding off the exterior enhancements are titanium tailpipes with carbon fiber coating, 22-inch alloys with blue brake calipers and black TechArt lettering, and two-tone paintwork combining matt black paint with high-gloss riviera blue accents. The result looks spectacular.

The exterior’s eye-catching color scheme has been applied to the lovingly detailed cabin too, as the GrandGT Selective adopts a 2+2 bi-color Alcantara interior in black and Riviera Blue. The blue accents feature more prominently on the driver’s side. Elsewhere, the doors have fine decorative stitching in Riviera Blue, while the dashboard top and the side center console is covered with matching Alcantrara. The black Alcantara headliner has a Riviera Blue central stripe echoing the exterior and even the floor is made entirely of Alcantara.

Like the GrandGT Supreme, the GrandGT Selective benefits from the TechArt Techtronic Powerkit for the Panamera Turbo. As a result, the 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8’s output has increased from 550 hp 640 hp, while peak torque has risen from 568 lb-ft to 664 lb-ft. These modifications enable the Panamera Sport Turismo to sprint from 0-62 mph in 3.4 seconds and top out at 190 mph. TechArt isn’t done with the Panamera just yet either, as the tuner will be showcasing a new power kit for the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid at the Essen Motor Show in December.
