Porsche Panamera by A. Kahn Design
Ever since the Porsche Panamera was introduced, its main criticism has been the looks – some say it is offensively ugly, but A. Kahn Design have made a few changes that they hope will change things somewhat.
Named the Kahn Porsche Panamera Wide Track, it has wide vented front and rear wheel arches, a lower rear wing, Kahn’s lowered sports suspension system, aluminium side vents, tinted windows, red brake calipers and tinted rear lights.
Choosing the model to get the Kahn treatment is tricky, because the specs you chose from Porsche will obviously affect what you get on the car; things like bi-xenon headlamps, front and rear park assist, Porsche PDK, start/stop technology, a sport chrono plus package, power assisted tailgate, heated front seats and iPod connectivity might not be fitted to the Porsche car, although Kahn is more than happy to fit bespoke parts if your car is missing a few options.
The interior is all leather, but as is the norm with Kahn, you can have anything you want on the inside.
“We provide our customers with the opportunity to express their individuality – they can have whatever they want,” says Kahn.
“We could, for example, design a vehicle with an exterior matching their shoes and an interior the same shade as their living room – it really is all up to them.”
Any customer has a choice of Kahn wheels, the car pictured costing £86,875 with the RS600 wheels.
