Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z to be OE on Porsche Panamera
Porsche has picked the Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z to be original equipment on the latest version of its Panamera. The tire was "extensively tested at maximum speed on the legendary German Nürburgring Nordschleife racetrack," according to Hankook officials.
"This ensures that the tire construction is particularly robust and able to cope with sporty demands at all times."
The Hankook Ventus S1 evo Z features aramid composite material in a double-layer carcass for heat resistance, deformation prevention and other benefits.
The tire also contains high-strength steel in its belt and bead areas for optimal stability and a reinforced sidewall.
“The Porsche Panamera is a high-performing, four-passenger sports car with outstanding comfort,” says Sanghoon Lee, president of Hankook Tire Europe.
“As such, we are very pleased to be the first to equip this model, as it shows that our products are extremely competitive even in the high-end segment. Additional tires for future Porsche models are already in development at Hankook.”
