It'll ride like hell on 19" wheels and the Panamera wheels are too deep an offset for a 986.

About the only other Porsche that can wear a set of Panamera wheels semi-successfully is a 928.

Advice? Yes. Install 24mm spacers all around, mount the wheels, and post pics!

Welcome to the forum.

Thatís really not 100% correct. I have 19ís, though not Panameras, and my ride is just fine. I do have an S so itís a little bit more stiff than standards to start.
