Porsche Panamera Turbo S by edo competition

Saturday, September 29, 2012

 edo competition is following up their earlier Porsche Panamera creations, Moby Dick and Hellboy, with another package but this time for the Panamera Turbo S variant. Opting not to give this range topping model a cheeky name, edo's Panamera Turbo S is mainly defined by its power package which gives an additional 150 HP (110 kW) and 130 Nm (96 lb-ft) of torque for a total of 700 HP (515 kW) and 880 Nm (649 lb-ft). The production Turbo S produces 550 HP (405 kW) and 800 Nm (590 lb-ft). But we're left wondering if this is merely a preliminary upgrade which leaves room for the future. If you'll recall, edo's Moby Dick which was just a Panamera Turbo produced 750 HP (552 kW) from its standard 500 HP (368 kW) - 250 HP (184 kW) more than stock. Regardless, edo tells us modifications include new exhaust manifolds and turbochargers, high-flow catalytic converters and air filters as well as a stainless steel high-performance exhaust system with butterfly valves. The engine management system was re-programmed for optimization of the new hardware. The edo Turbo S sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds, compared the 3.8 seconds for the standard car, and hits 200 km/h (124 mph) in just 11.4 seconds, as opposed to 13.5 seconds. The top speed of the edo Turbo S stands at 340 km/h (211 mph) which is amazingly electronically limited. edo also adds a lowering module which adjusts the vehicle's ground height by up to 30mm and 22-inch carbon-fiber-look racing wheels.
