Courage takes many forms. We’ve opted for that of a sports car. A few years ago, everything to do with the sedan suddenly changed. Large, cumbersome, and thickly padded instantly seemed like outdated qualities. And on the road, something fast and dynamic began happening: a sports car came along. A sports car with four seats, an unmistakable silhouette, and performance figures associated only with a Porsche. The Panamera. It changed everything. For drivers of sedans first and foremost. Sporting spirit—in business and in personal life—found its automotive counterpart. The courage to perform found a matching performer. Now the change continues forward. On the road, something is happening again. For sporty drivers—and their sporty companions—our engineers and designers have created the next Panamera. With the courage of a new generation.
The new generation of the Panamera comprises five models: the Panamera and Panamera 4, both with an efficient 3.0-liter turbocharged V6; the Panamera 4S with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo-charged V6; Panamera Turbo, with a 4.0-liter twin-turbo-charged V8; and the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, equipped with a 2.9-liter twin-turbo-charged V6 and electric motor.
And the Panamera is more dynamic than ever: thanks to optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport), Porsche 4D Chassis Control, three chamber air suspension and—for the first time in the Panamera—rear axle steering.
Characteristic features of all Panamera models include 4-point LED daytime running lights and Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) on the Panamera Turbo, a light strip along the rear end, and slimline three-dimensional LED taillights with 4-point brake lights. The extending rear spoiler integrated into the body reduces lift on the rear axle at high speeds.
The efficient 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine in the Panamera and Panamera 4 is equipped with a twin-scroll turbocharger positioned between the cylinder banks, and produces 330 hp. The maximum torque of 331 lb.-ft. is achieved between 1340 to 4900 rpm. The tremendous tractive power of the Panamera 4S all-wheel drive is transmitted to the road by 19-inch Panamera S wheels. Wheels of up to 21 inches in size are also available as an option. Brake calipers are standard in Titanium Grey and round twin tailpipes are fitted left and right.
Highlights of the new Panamera Turbo include a dominant front end, characteristic front light units, and side air outlets in the front fenders finished in the vehicle’s exterior color. Other features include twin tailpipes specific to the Turbo; red brake calipers located behind 20-inch Panamera Turbo wheels; and a rear spoiler that splits at full deployment for a significant gain in width—proportionate to the higher power output of this model.
