mcchip-dkr: Power Upgrade for Porsche Panamera Diesel

(PresseBox) ( Mechernich/Obergartzem, )
The venerable name obliges: With the Panamera, the trademark Porsche that has specialized in sports cars since several decades, has - from the point of view of optical attributes and driving dynamics - now (since three years) added the most sportive limousine series to its program that any German automobile manufacturer can offer at the present moment.

While the peak models Panamera GTS (430 HP), Turbo (500 HP) and Turbo S (550 HP) particularly target "Performance Junkies" and the hybrid variation (380 HP) basically targets high-tech fans, the Panamera Diesel (with its 250 HP strong 3.0 litre V6 Common Rail Turbo-Diesel) can particularly serve the purpose of long-distance drivers as a sportive alternative to Mercedes Benz E-class, the 5 series of BMW etc. being the most economic series variation.

However: 250 Diesel HP in a Porsche does not seem to be the ultimate satisfaction of the senses after all. Mcchip-dkr - the company from Mechernich specializing in software optimization and chip tuning - therefore sent Panamera Diesel to the electronic gym. Through targeted manipulations of the engine characteristics, the electronic experts of the Northern Eifel succeeded in boosting the performance of the breezy diesel engine to 285 HP that was developed at 3,900 rotations per minute. The maximum torque, which mcchip-dkr boosted by 50 to the present total of 600 Newton meter is achieved even far earlier already at 1,850 rotations per minute. Having been strengthened in this manner, the tuned Panamera Diesel now sprints about half-a-second faster from 0 to 100 km/h than its serial counterpart. Maximum speed is boosted by four kilometres per hour to the present 246 km/h.

To also give Panamera a boost in lateral dynamics in addition to the increase in longitudinal dynamics, mcchip-dkr also installed, in the project vehicle shown here, a set of performance springs from the company H&R which lowers the big Porsche by about 30 millimetres thus endowing it with an "experiencable" luscious handling. Moreover, the three-part cargraphic rims of the sizes 9x22 and 10.5x22 inches that were soled with the Dunlop Sport Maxx GT high-performance tires of the dimensions 265/30R22 in front and 295/25R22 in the rear found their way into the generously dimensioned wheel houses.

Of course mcchip-dkr also offers software optimization for several other Porsche series and models - individual software are also programmed on demand and in accordance with customer's wishes.
