The Lamborghini Estoque seems to be well on its way to production, and should arrive sometime in 2014. According to a leaked document, the Italian automaker will also be offering a drop top version of the four-door, which will be unveiled one year after the sedan’s debut. The Estoque convertible will likely arrive first in concept form in 2015, and then go into production form for 2016.
Sporty or luxurious? BMW or Porsche? Two of Germany’s finest production automobiles have been tuned by Vorsteiner to near perfection, contrasting the M3’s urge to be sporty with the Panamera’s desire to be luxurious. This isn’t the first time we’ve seen Vorsteiner’s Candy Cane GTRS3 M3 or their Porsche Panamera V-PT, but enjoying them both in one photo shoot is a real treat.
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.
While Porsche‘s Panamera’s styling is still a love it or hate it for many, the aftermarket has been progressively turning it into a more “love it” vehicle through some aesthetic changes like Vorsteiner’s V-PT kit. True to Vorsteiner fashion, the V-PT kit for the Panamera consists of subtle and clean lines rather than gaudy and extreme changes. If you’re looking for a classy way to make your Panamera a little more aggressive on the outside, look no further.
Platinum Motorsports is known for bold luxury and exotic builds, and to really put the spotlight on what they’ve done over the recent years, they’ve put together a video of epic proportions. Taking some of their finest projects and hitting several Los Angeles landmarks while armed with a video camera, Platinum Motorsports has released this video that will make any luxury and exotic lover drool.
The video mainly highlights a Lamborghini LP640 with a matte Reventon Grey paint job, along with a Mercedes-Benz SL550 with a Black Series widebody treatment sporting the same shade. In addition, their Premier 4509 widebody Bentley GT Mulliner also steals the spotlight in matte white and we see glimpses of several Range Rovers.
Obviously the point of the video is to spotlight what Platinum Motorsports specializes in, but we can’t help but wonder how awesome Transformers would be if they had these cars in the movie; or what would happen if Fast and the Furious met Gone in 60 Seconds and had a bastard child.

At any given ALMS race, you’re guaranteed to see a field of Porsches on the track at any given minute. These are mostly 997 variants, but now there’s the possibility of catching a glimpse of Porsche’s Panamera and Cayenne at any ALMS race. Ideally, we hope not to see these on the track, given that they’re support vehicles, but it’s nice to see Porsche’s lineup being properly represented at one of the world’s most prestigious race series.
With the success of Porsche‘s Panamera sedan, it’s little surprise that the automaker is now looking to introduce yet another 4-door model. With the Panamera sitting at the top of the range, the new model, code named the Pajun, will be a more affordable sedan, competing in the same realm as the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class.
Limited edition vehicles from manufacturers are becoming more and more popular as automakers look to cater to a specific country or demographic. Porsche has joined the group of companies doing just that with its luxurious and fast Panamera sedan, targeting the wealthy in the Middle East with a limited edition Panamera 4S model.
Everytime we feel that Mansory can’t top its previous creation, it looks like the out-of-the-box vehicle builders have no end of out-of-the-box thoughts. Most recently, they’ve taken their already modified Porsche Panamera creation and have decided to splash a highlighter-bright yellow to its exterior.
If your name is Ishmael or Ahab and you’ve always wanted to own a Panamera nicknamed Pequod, then Edo Competition’s newest Panamera build is perfect for you. If not and you’re just a Porsche Panamera owner looking to enjoy 750-hp, then Edo Competition’s Moby Dick Panamera will still do the trick.
Renderings were released back in May for Vorsteiner’s vision of a Panamera Turbo tuning package, and now the vision has become a reality. Vorsteiner gave the Teamspeed forums a first look at their complete Panamera Turbo, which sports Vorsteiner’s new body kit and forged wheels.
Was this really a surprise to anyone? Porsche‘s entry into the luxury sedan segment has been a huge success, having delivered over 22,500 Panameras to their owners in its first year of production.
By blending Porsche performance with its unmistakable styling (for good or bad), the Panamera has filled a void for those that are stuck needing a sedan, but still like the idea of owning a Porsche. Sure a Mercedes-Benz S-Class or even BMW’s 7-Series is nice, but nothing beats saying you have Porsche that’s full of Porschey performance goodness.
And the breakdown of its worldwide distribution? 2,530 in Germany, 300 in Hong Kong, 223 in Tokyo, 188 in Shanghai, 285 in Dubai, 203 in Moscow and 196 in Munich. Here in the U.S., there’s 890 of them roaming in Los Angeles and 760 in New York.
The Panamera 4S model is the top seller (9,3494), with the Turbo coming second (6,171) and the S being a third (4,563). Oh, and that six-cylinder model that was just recently released? 2,390 delivered. No rest for the luxurious we say.
