Tuning company gets to work on new five-door saloon
18 August 2009

Pictures of a Gemballa Porsche Panamera have surfaced on the internet.

The company is well known for tuning Cayennes, as well as 911s and Carrera GTs, so it was only a matter of time before the new five-door saloon got the Gemballa treatment.

Details are a little sketchy but the appearance of the car, named the Mistrale, has been beefed up with new bumpers front and rear.

The Gemballa Panamera is understood to be riding on 22in alloys and has a Carrera 4S-style reflector strip between the rear lights.

Overall it’s a fairly subtle aesthetic makeover that many will argue gives the Panamera some much-needed visual impact.

It is not yet known what changes have taken place under the bonnet, but Gemballa is well versed in tuning the V8 in the Cayenne, in effect the same unit as that of the Panamera.

Expect power upgrades to well in excess of 600bhp when Gemballa’s engineers have finished with the saloon, therefore.
