Exotic Upgrades

Eugene Motorsports has created a few versions of the Porsche Panamera in the past but this is the newest version is the top of the line $173k Porsche Panamera Turbo S. In stock form this 4-door supercar pushes 550 horsepower and 553-lb-ft. of torque from a turbocharged 4.8 liter V-8 engine. 0-60 MPH is gone is 3.5 seconds and the stock car can go 190 MPH. With Eugene Motorsports model, the first glance may appear that only exterior upgrades were done to this car. Instead there is a whole host of modifications including stuff done under the hood.

Eugene engineers have decided to overhaul the 4.8 V-8 twin-turbo motor: which already is a very potent power plant. They have used a new crankshaft, new catalytic converter, larger turbos, air filters and new exhaust to increase power to 700 HP. Furthermore, the maximum torque has increased to 589 lb-ft. It stands to reason that causes an enhancement as achieved improved performance. Indeed, acceleration from 0 to 60 MPH fly’s by in 3.2 seconds while the top speed is now 211 MPH! Other figures provided by Edo Competition are the acceleration from 0 to 125 MPH is covered in 11.4 seconds, 2.1 seconds which is less than the Turbo S factory.


n addition to the tweaks to the engine and exhaust, the valley company has not made any changes on the schemes of the suspension or brakes, which speaks volumes to the already perfect suspension on the Turbo S. The only thing notable is the installation of a coilover system that lets you change the ride height by up to 30 mm. The only cosmetic modification is the installation of a spectacular set of 22-inch wheels finished in carbon fiber. You can opt for the graphics but most owners like the clean simple look to hide the monstrous power.
