German tuner TechArt has been giving us Porsches that are beyond our dreams. They’ve made the fast faster, the tech even techier, and of course, the luxurious even more than we could imagine. At this year’s Geneva Motor Show that’ll be held on March 8-18, TechArt is giving us a welcomed treat. They plan to exhibit a wide range of products that will surely be impressive. But none will even come close to their main attraction: the GrandGT Supreme. Imagine the Porsche Panamera Grand Turismo, a supersedan launched in 2009 with all the bells and whistles of the best in German automobile engineering. The second generation Panamera’s released in 2016 are even better than the first. But TechArt is upping the game with their version of the classic, which will make its first public debut at the annual motor show.
Let’s start with the sleek exterior upgrade TechArt is giving the GrandGT Supreme. A new apron graces the front of the vehicle, coupled with an integrated splitter. The back is fashioned with a new apron design as well, complete with flared fenders and a sport exhaust system made with titanium and carbon fiber tailpipes. Many of the add-ons are actually made out of carbon fiber simply to keep the weight down. Lesser weight equals faster vehicle. Don’t mind the racing green paint that puts the GrandGT Supreme on a stylistic level of its own; it’s the 22-inch Formula IV wheels that prep us all for what’s hiding under the hood. Starting with the Turbo model, TechArt takes the Panamera to a whole new level. The horsepower has been increased from 570 to 640, and the torque has also been increased from 626 to 664 pound-feet. The company has maintained the turbocharged vehicle to have a 4.0-liter V-8 engine. The overall package can take off from 0 to 6.2 mph time at a highly impressive 3.4 seconds. And if anytime you’d ever need to or feel the urge to hit roughly 124-125mp for some reason, it’ll only take you 11.7 seconds on TechArt’s GrandGT Supreme. If you’re brave enough, go for the top speeds of 200mph. We don’t recommend it, but with this car, it’s an option.
All of that sounds great, but the best part of the Supreme is yet to come. We’ve always considered wagons to be slightly outdated—in both form and fashion. TechArt has shown us how wrong we really were. The look of the GrandGT from the outside will make you gasp, but wait until the doors have been fully opened. The interior of this vehicle is the ultimate selling point. It reminds us of a billion-dollar yacht that hardly anyone ever uses. The upholstery is ridiculous. The saddle brown, vegetable-tanned nappa leather is the stuff of envy. The multi-color stitching adds a uniqueness that gives the GrandGT a personality like no other. Absolutely everything—from the seats to the door panels, footwells, center console, and more—in the car’s interior is covered in this leather, and it’s just unbelievably stunning. The body color trim and other finishes give it a sleek look, and the TechArt sport steering is just the icing on the cake.
TechArt has modified everything in this car and has done so lavishly. If you own a Panamera and wish to pull something off like the GrandGT, TechArt can do so for the right price. Of course, you can pick and choose options to modify. If you didn’t like the gorgeous interior leather, for example, you can opt for the stock options or do something completely unique for your vehicle. TechArt’s work on the Porsche Panamera is truly outstanding, and if you wish to do something similar yet more in touch with your own personal style, TechArt can pull it off. While pricing information has yet to be released, we’re pretty sure the lavish upgrade to the Porsche will be reflected on the cost. After all, the Panamera Sport Turismo’s baseline price is already at $154,000. If you want all the bells and whistles of the GrandGT Supreme, prepare to fork out more. Much, much more. Otherwise, you can see all the other entries TechArt is exhibiting at the Geneva Motor Show this year. If they’re starting off with the GrandGT, we’re pretty sure we’ll be just as impressed with the others.
