Like it or not (a high percentage of brand loyalists are still firmly in the “not” camp), the Porsche Cayenne has been a cash cow for the brand almost since its introduction in 2002. Buyers who would have never considered becoming Porsche owners, as well as people who did consider it but were vetoed by practicality requirements and/or the opinions of a significant other, have snapped up Zuffenhausen’s SUV en masse. And with hybrid and diesel versions available, the Cayenne’s desirability appears to be pretty well insulated from oil price volatility.
Of course, as we all know, popularity breeds ubiquity, and not every lover of Porsche’s stump-jumper is down with that. Fortunately for them, Russian tuner TopCar is giving 50 such individuals a chance at making their Cayenne considerably harder to lose in the parking lot thanks to the Vantage GTR2 package.
Admit it: When you think of nations that harbor large quantities of automotive tuners, the ones that come to mind most promptly are Germany, Japan and the good ol’ U.S. of A. Tuners in these countries have the experience. They have the kickass cars, both homegrown and otherwise. And they have the venues to test their creations and strong cultures that appreciate them.
These days, though, you can add Russia to that list of prolific car-modding countries. The Motherland’s nouveau riche love high end cars that stand out from the herd (and some really, really stand out), go crazy-fast, or both. One of the Russian tuners catering to this market is TopCar, and they’ve just announced an upgrade package for the Porsche Panamera.
