A unique symbiosis of contrasts: the new Porsche Panamera now covers an even wider spectrum. It combines the performance of a sports car with the comfort of an exclusive saloon.
With the 463 kW (630 PS) Panamera Turbo S, the sports car manufacturer successfully supports its claim to best-in-class performance. The new top-of-the-range model betters the performance figures of the previous Panamera Turbo by a wide margin. The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid is a new addition to the range of plug-in hybrids, offering a completely new drive system with 412 kW (560 PS) system output. Compared with the previous hybrid models, the all-electric range has been boosted by up to 30 per cent. Comfort and sportiness both benefit from enhanced chassis components and control systems in combination with the new-generation steering control and tyres.
Turbo S: from zero to 100 km/h in 3.1 seconds
With a power output of 463 kW (630 PS) and a torque of 820 newton metres, the new Panamera Turbo S offers 59 kW (80 PS) more power and 50 Nm more torque than the previous flagship Turbo with combustion engine. This has a very positive effect on driving performance: in Sport Plus mode, the Turbo S model accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds. Developed in Weissach and built in Zuffenhausen, the famil-iar four-litre V8 biturbo engine has been comprehensively overhauled to enable the car to achieve a top speed of 315 km/h.
The new Panamera Turbo S has already proven its uncompromising performance ca-pability on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife: test driver Lars Kern completed the 20.832 kilometre-long lap on the most demanding race track in the world in exactly 7:29.81 minutes – the new official record in the “executive cars” class.
The V8 biturbo engine in the Panamera GTS was optimised with a specific focus on its power delivery. With 353 kW (480 PS) and 620 Nm, the new Panamera GTS deliv-ers 15 kW (20 PS) more power than its predecessor. The power output continuously increases up to close to the engine speed limit. The power delivery is therefore like that of a classic sports car with naturally aspirated engine. The traditional V8 sound characteristics are even more prominent than before thanks to the new standard sports exhaust system featuring asymmetrically positioned rear silencers.
4S E-Hybrid with 17.9 kWh battery and an electric range of up to 54 km
Porsche is presenting a further performance-oriented plug-in hybrid model with the new Panamera 4S E-Hybrid. The intelligent combination of the 100 kW (136 PS) elec-tric motor integrated into the eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and the 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine with 324 kW (440 PS) generates a system output of 412 kW (560 PS) and a maximum system torque of 750 Nm.
The performance figures are therefore very impressive: combined with the standard Sport Chrono Package, the sprint from 0 – 100 km/h is covered in 3.7 seconds. The top speed is 298 km/h. The gross battery capacity has been increased from 14.1 to 17.9 kWh compared with the previous hybrid models using optimised cells and the driving modes have been opti-mised for even more efficient energy utilisation. The 4S E-Hybrid has an all-electric range of up to 54 km in accordance with WLTP EAER City (NEDC: up to 64 km).
The new Panamera models – in addition to the sports saloon, they can also be ordered as Sport Turismo or Executive with lengthened wheelbase, depending on the drive system – 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 differen-tiated by the larger side air intakes and newly designed elements in the exterior colour, which are connected horizontally and thus emphasise the width of the vehicle. The light modules of the dual Turbo front lights are now set much further apart.
The Porsche Communication Management (PCM) includes additional digital functions and services such as the improved Voice Pilot online voice control, Risk Radar for up-to-date road sign and hazard information, wireless Apple® CarPlay and many other Connect services. The Panamera also offers an extensive range of innovative light and assistance systems, such as the now standard Lane Keeping Assist with road sign recognition, as well as Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control, Night Vi-sion Assist, Lane Change Assist, LED matrix headlights including PDLS Plus, Park Assist including Surround View and head-up display.
