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.
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.
