Gemballa Porsche Panamera

It was bound to happen – German tuners get their hands on the Porsche Panamera

Gemballa Porsche Panamera Porsches are quickly becoming the most tuned cars on the market. Perhaps it’s national pride from the predominantly German tuning industry, but there seems to be no end to the modified 911s and tweaked Cayenne SUVs.

And now the inevitable has happened – a Porsche Panamera’s had the same treatment. Deutschland-based tuner Gemballa is responsible for this, the Mistrale. It’s not finished yet, but these pictures give a clue as to what we can expect.

New bumpers, a big rear diffuser, quad exhausts (made of stainless steel, no less) and typically showy 22in wheels are more typical changes, while what appears to be a BMW M3 coupe-aping carbon roof could be on the cards judging by these pictures.

There aren’t any details on performance or dynamic enhancements just yet, but the air intakes on the bonnet suggest something more potent lies beneath. Good job, really, because now that Gemballa’s kicked things off there’s bound to be an abundance of rival tuners’ Panameras just around the corner. Happy days.
