Russian tuner TopCar has really made a name for themselves with some fantastic Porsche styling packages, and this Cayenne might be the best one we’ve seen yet. Even better is the fact that there are some stunning photos and scenery to go along with the Cayenne, that is featured in a unique shade of Amethyst Metallic, a color Porsche offers on some of their models.

For their Porsche Cayenne Vantage 2, TopCar offers a complete widebody conversion which includes matching front and rear bumpers and side skirts. The aggressive styling of the kit really transforms the Cayenne from bumper to bumper, and the subtle Amethyst Metallic finish gives it a sleek, exotic look. The elegant design of the concave split-five spoke wheels were a perfect match to the Cayenne’s body. Really, we’re having a hard time whether to appreciate the beauty of the car or the location of the photoshoot.

Even more luxurious is the custom interior, featuring a double-diamond stitched pattern on the seats in a milk chocolate brown finish. The unique pairing of colors are contrasting, with the darker brown highlighted by a nice clean beige. Of course the wooden accents are a perfect fit while TopCar adorned the headrests with some custom embroidery. Finishing off the entire car are vantage logos on the exterior and in the interior’s door sills.

Russian tuner TOPCAR has added their name to the list of available Porsche Panamera tuning packages with their Stingray GTR program. With it comes some very aggressive styling to the luxury sedan, with TOPCAR’s priority clearly to add more sport than luxury to the Panamera.

This isn’t TOPCAR’s first attempt at a styling package for the Panamera; their first one was well-received but demand emerged for something more aggressive and “charismatic”, and the Stingray GTR is the result of those demands.

The styling package comes complete with all new front and rear bumpers, hood, front and rear fender extenders, front and rear doors and side skirts. That’s right, you’ll be removing and replacing many panels with this kit completely transforming your Panamera to something more fitting of Porsche’s brand name. The overall stance of the Panamera will make you look twice – it’s wider, meaner and sharper. Even more trick is the addition of a small-button push that triggers the opening of the rear doors. All body components and panels are constructed from carbon fiber and Kevlar.

TOPCAR will only be offering 25 Stingray GTR packages, and notes that each vehicle will receive its own special features making them all unique in their own way. The package starts at an impressive $63,500. TOPCAR found it worth mentioning that four of those 25 are already spoken for.

And for those looking for more performance out of their Panamera while TOPCAR is replacing every panel imaginable, they do offer engine tuning programs to bring performance up to 700-hp and Brembo big brake packages can also be incorporated to your build.
