This is a nice little blast from the past. What we have here is a Caractere Exclusive Panamera styling kit fitted to a range-topping Turbo S model, the pre-facelift version, complemented with a set of sick CEC wheels. It’ still not pretty, but it sure is one of the coolest Panameras we’ve seen.
The CEC wheels adorning this Caractere Exclusive Panamera Turbo S are a set of staggered CW1 models in size 22-inch featuring mirror polished silver finish. The may seem a bit too simple for the car’s rather insane looks, but they are elegant and do a good job of showing off those eye-popping red brake calipers.
As for the Caractere Exclusive Panamera styling kit, the main features include an aggressive front bumper with a chunky spoiler lip featuring silver accents, a pair of manly side skirts again with silver accents, and a big rear diffuser in… you guessed it, silver. That spoiler you see in the pictures is Panamera’s own.
Porsche Panamera, pre and post-facelift , is hideous. There is getting away from that fact. But kits like Caractere’s and wheels like CEC’s make it possible to enjoy the brilliant engineering package this car offers without being embarrassed.
