Booster pack adds 40bhp to turbo Porsche.

A performance pack is being introduced by Porsche, boosting the power of its flagship Panamera Turbo from 500bhp to 540bhp.

The optional Powerkit increases the top speed of the four-seater GT to 190mph and shaves the 0 to 60 acceleration time down to 3.9 seconds.

Costing pounds 11,118, the kits are available on new models from this month and capable of being retrofitted to existing turbos from November.

A sports-styling package is also being introduced for all versions of the Panamera in October and will include 20-inch alloys as well as a body-coloured nose with wider black air intake grilles and separate side skirts in addition to the standard, body-coloured rear underbody apron with diffuser and fins.

The extra styling costs pounds 2,516 and combined with the Powerkit takes the price of the V8 turbo to more than pounds 110,000.
