N.Technology’s Porsche Panamera race car has already had great success in the Italian Supercars series with its limited race time, but it looks like those efforts aren’t enough to satisfy the team at N.Technology. And just like that, they’ve completed and tested their second Porsche Panamera race car that will be competing this weekend at the Paul Ricard circuit in France.
With the success of their first car, it’s no surprise they’ve expanded their major sponsorship with Zegg & Cerlati, a manufacturer of fine watches and jewelry. The Panamera race car also gets its new official livery of black and chrome.
We’ll keep our eyes glued to see how it does this weekend and whether or not N.Technology will experience growing pains with an all new race car… or just go blow the doors off of its competition right from the start – again.

Official press release available after the break.
Several weeks back we reported on the very first Porsche Panamera race car, built by N.Technology. Now the team has unveiled the completed Panamera S touring car, ready to compete in the Italian Supercars series. Making 450-hp from its naturally aspirated 4.8-liter V8 engine and weighing 2,900 lbs, the N.Technology car driven by Fabrizio Giovanardi was on pole for its first ever race, and even managed to place at the top of the podium, two seconds ahead of the nearest competitor – a BMW M3 race car.
For those not familiar with the amazing Italian Superstars series see the video after the jump for some action from a previous season, with plenty of V8 heavy metal gunning for the checkered flag:
