Even though Porsche‘s move to the Panamera caused some controversy, we think it’s safe to say the model has been well received by the general public and the aftermarket. Tuning programs, body kits, suspension and a load of parts have been unleashed for Porsche’s newest luxury sedan and the newest entry to the field is from Hofele-Design.

Based out of Germany, Hofele-Design’s take on the Panamera is similar to other tuning programs and packages from German aftermarket manufacturers. They touch on every aspect of the vehicle in order to convert it from subtle commuter to exotic street cruiser. The entire exterior is overhauled with all new front and rear bumpers, side skirts and rear diffuser. Obviously the goal was to make the Panamera plenty sportier and Hofele-Design’s body kit does just that, even incorporate a front grille from Porsche’s Cayenne Turbo.

Performance is helped with a quad-tipped exhaust that is naturally made to flow with the body kit. Suspension upgrades come from an electronic lowering module which drops the vehicle around 1.5-inches all around. Larger brakes are available from a four-piston caliper upgrade or a much larger six-piston caliper upgrade. Hofele-Design opted to outfit their demo vehicle with 22-inch wheels but also has different models and 20-inch variants available to the public.

Lastly the interior receives bi-color quilted leather in a variety of color choices. If desired other interior amenities can be re-wrapped to match the color scheme.
