It was only a matter of time until someone turned a Porsche Panamera into a race car. Virtually every Porsche (Cayenne excluded) has been subjected to some form of competition, even the lowly cast-offs like the 924 and 914.
N.Technology, an Italian race shop, decided to be the first to step up to the plate with the Porsche Panamera platform, selecting the “base” Panamera S, with a naturally aspirated V8 and rear-wheel drive, as the base for their new Touring Car.
The Panamera will be piloted by Fabrizio Giovanardi, a well known European touring car driver, with the car competing in the new Superstars series, with the first race at Hockenheim, Germany on July 2nd.
