These are the first pictures of the Porsche Panamera racer, which is being prepared by multiple touring car title winners N.Technology.

The car, which has an aluminium spaceframe that has been under construction since February, is powered by a 450bhp 4.8-litre V8 - up 50bhp on the Panamera S but down 50bhp on the Panamera Turbo.

Porsche, you need to buy this spaceframe IMMEDIATELY - the stock Panamera is too porky, but this could be its redemption. Could also be useful for the Lamborghini Estoque...

I've noticed that this tends to happen quite a lot whenever Autocar publishes a significantly large number of articles about a particular manufacturer. Wonder why.

The Panamera is cosmetically challenged but a go faster version would help as it would flash past before you had a chance to notice its looks.

You mean a 4.8 litre twin-turbo V8 doesn't make it fast enough as it is?!

Mind you, I'm looking forward to the Panamera GT3, with a pair of 911 GT3 3.8 litre flat-6s stuck together to make a 7.6 litre flat-12... well, a man can dream, can't he!
