Tokyo - The Yokohama Rubber Co., Ltd., announced today that its “ADVAN Sport V105 N-0” tyres - part of its global flagship "ADVAN" series - have been selected by Germany’s Porsche AG as original equipment for the company’s premium saloon, Panamera. The Panamera will be equipped with 255/40ZR20 (101Y) size front tyres and 295/35ZR20 (105Y) size rear.

The “ADVAN Sport V105 N-0” was developed together with Porsche based on YOKOHAMA’s “ADVAN Sport V105” for high-powered premium cars, and the “N-0” mark on the side of each tyre indicates Porsche’s approval of the tyre. The “ADVAN Sport V105” is known for its excellent driving performance and superior comfort and safety characteristics.

The Panamera premiered in 2009 as Porsche’s first 4-door, 4-seat passenger car. Designed to achieve unsurpassed sports car performance without compromising on practicality, the Panamera lives us to Porsche’s reputation for providing a smooth ride in a sporty package while also realizing the comfortable, high-quality ride sought by drivers of luxury cars.

YOKOHAMA tyres also come factory-equipped on the Porsche 911 Carrera 4 (997) and the Porsche Cayenne.
