In its second generation, the Panamera has been redeveloped down to every last detail. Modifications to the engine, transmission, chassis, and overall design concept, make it a performance icon in the luxury class. The all-wheel drive Panamera Turbo further extends the boundaries between an ambitious sports car and a comfortable cruising car with technical highlights such as rear axle steering, electromechanical roll stabilisation, and a three-chamber air suspension.
Engine and transmission
The Panamera Turbo engine has been redesigned to produce more power, whilst significantly improving fuel economy and reducing emissions. With its powerful petrol engine, the Panamera Turbo accelerates to 100 km/hr in 3.8 seconds, whilst with the Sport Chrono Package the sprint time is down to 3.6 seconds. The new turbo model features a top speed of 306 km/h and a
power-to-weight ratio of just 3.6 kg/hp.
The brand’s first eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission enables an even better gear ratio spread alongside a reduction in fuel consumption, because the seventh and eighth gears are designed as engine speed-reducing overdrive gears, meaning the vehicle reaches its top speed in sixth gear.
New design philosophy
At first glance, the unique concept and performance credentials of the four-door sports car are reflected in a new design which creates a stylistic link to Porsche’s design icon, the 911. Recognisable sports car aesthetics which make up the typical Porsche flyline in the new Panamera include pronounced shoulders, athletic flanks, and an extremely fast roof line that is 20 mm lower at the rear. LED headlights and larger wheels also add to a sporty look.
The sharpened exterior includes a completely new front-end design, with a crossbar in the radiator grille emphasising the car’s width and an arrow-shaped bonnet that features a prominently contoured powerdome. The rear of the vehicle now further highlights the Panamera’s four-door coupé credentials, distinguishing it from a conventional saloon. Features, such as the three-dimensional LED rear lights that include integrated four-point brake lights, interconnected by a narrow LED strip, result in a distinctive night design.
Behind the steering wheel
The luxury saloon drive experience is taken to a new level, wirh the functionality and easy interaction of the new Porsche Advanced Cockpit. Its intuitive user interface makes operation of the communication, convenience, and assistance systems easier than ever. The 12.3-inch display touchscreen marks the next stage of development for the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system.
Luxury Chauffeur Saloon
The Panamera Turbo Executive is equipped with various standard features, including a large panoramic roof, comfort seats with multi-way electrical adjustment in the front and rear, and roll-up sun blinds behind the headrests in the rear. The model also offers four-zone climate control and ambient lighting as standard. – Press Release
