Diesel with a touch of class and performance.
The diesel variant of the Porsche Panamera gravitates towards fuel efficiency rather than performance like it’s V-8 and turbocharged brethren. But with the new speedART PS9 300D power kit, the diesel sedan becomes a potent performer with looks that rival the Turbo model.
The 3.0-liter powerplant used in the Panamera diesel offers a respectable 250 horsepower and 406 lb-ft. of torque in stock form. The German tuner developed the speedART PS9 300D Panamera power kit to unleash the engine’s hidden potential and make the sedan quicker on its feet. With the new tuning kit, the turbodiesel V-6 engine gets a boost to 300 horsepower and thundering 479 lb-ft. (650 Nm) of torque. The added power helps to improve the stock 6.8-second 0-62 mph sprint and 150 mph top speed.
The appearance of the speedART Porsche Panamera Diesel can also be enhanced with a new Aero-Kit to reflect the increased power output. The PS9 Aero-Kit includes a front chin spoiler, side skirts, rear diffuser, and rear double-wing spoiler for increased downforce at high speeds. New air intakes also bring in cool air at the front and rear of the sedan. At the rear, customers can also order a set of tailpipes that utilize the stock muffler.
The complete transformation is completed with a set of performance wheels and tires. speedART chose their five-spoke monobloc Competition FSC wheels in a bi-color version for the Panamera Diesel. The black and silver wheels measure 22 inches on both the front and rear axle, and wear 265 and 305 ZR 22 performance tires for greater grip. Behind each of the wheels lie speedART sport-design brake calipers for improved stopping power.
The entire Porsche Panamera Diesel tuning range can be purchased from speedART as a complete package or separate accessories. Pricing for the speedART PS9 300D Power Kit, PS9 Aero-Kit, and wheel fitment have not been released.
