Porsche launched the new Panamera in a glittering digital invite and we were present digitally too. So, what is new in the Panamera now. We are happy to report Panamera continues its DNA to be a performance-oriented sports car with comfort of a family saloon. The Panamera Turbo S now produces staggering 630 PS of power and dashes from 0-100 in just 3.1 seconds.
With a power output of 630 PS (463 kW) and a torque of 820 newton metres, the new Panamera Turbo S offers 80 PS (59 kW) more power and 50 Nm more torque than the previous flagship Turbo. Developed in Weissach and built in Zuffenhausen, the familiar four-litre V8 biturbo engine has been comprehensively overhauled to enable the car to achieve a top speed of 315 km/h. In order to transfer the enormous power to the road in a controlled manner and maximise cornering performance, the three-chamber air suspension, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the roll stabilisation system Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) including Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) have been customised to each specific model and optimised accordingly. The V8 biturbo engine in the Panamera GTS was optimised with a specific focus on its power delivery. With 480 PS (353 kW) and 620 Nm, the new Panamera GTS delivers 20 PS (15 kW) more power than its predecessor. And the base model, is now equipped with the familiar 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine, delivering 330 PS (243 kW) and 450 Nm.
On the features front, the Panamera comes with wireless Apple CarPlay, Lane Keeping Assist, as well as adaptive cruise control, Night Vision Assist, Lane Change Assist, LED matrix headlights including PDLS Plus, Park Assist including Surround View and head-up display.
While the New Panamera is not vastly different from the outgoing car, there are some visual differences though. For example, The new Panamera models are now equipped from the factory with the previously optional Sport Design front end with striking air intake grilles, large side cooling openings and a single-bar front light module. The completely new front end of the Panamera Turbo S is differentiated by the larger side air intakes and newly designed elements in the exterior colour, which are connected horizontally and thus emphasize the width of the vehicle. The light modules of the dual Turbo front lights are now set much further apart.
