462 hp of pure Sports Car performance, and fuel economy that will impress—the combination of combustion engine and electric machine is crucial for this peak performance. The combustion engine builds up power and torque as engine speed increases. The maximum torque of the electric machine is available immediately.
The core of Porsche E-Performance is the vehicle. Our plug-in hybrid technology therefore has to meet two strict requirements. Firstly, it must drastically reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Secondly, it must deliver an experience that pushes the driver firmly back into the seat. Which is precisely the right place to be in a Porsche .
Getting more power from an engine is worthwhile only when you know where it needs to go. And how quickly and effectively. The latest Panamera models are therefore equipped with a newly developed 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the respective engine into the acceleration expected of a sports car.
Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. 7th and 8th gear have a long ratio, which helps to keep engine revs low even at high road speeds – for efficient and comfortable driving over long distances. The precise gearshifts take place in milliseconds with no discernible interruption in the flow of power – as you would expect of a sports car.
Adrenaline at the push of a button: the Sport Chrono Package offers an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. The kit includes a digital and analog stopwatch, a graphic in the instrument cluster showing longitudinal and lateral acceleration, and a performance display for viewing lap times in Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
What's new is the mode switch on the steering wheel with SPORT Response button. Four driving modes are available to choose from: 'Normal', 'SPORT', 'SPORT PLUS' and 'Individual' – for an even more personalized driving style.
Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)
PASM is an electronic damping control system. It actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style.
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) including Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus)
New Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) is an active roll stabilization system with an ultra sporty setup, PTV Plus enhances driving dynamics and stability.
Available for the Panamera models for the first time: optional rear-axle steering. It enhances performance and everyday driveability in equal measure.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM)
This active all-wheel drive with electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch ensures the optimum distribution of drive force whatever the driving situation – for excellent acceleration power on long straights, through tight corners and on road surfaces with varying grip.
The tires are wider, the contact surface larger – for enhanced performance under acceleration and braking. The Panamera models are equipped as standard with 19-inch wheels. The material? Alloy, of course. The design? Classic and sporty. A choice of other 19-, 20- and 21-inch wheels is available on request.
The new Panamera Executive models combine sporty driving with a comfortable work zone in the rear compartment – thanks to an extra 15 cm added to the length of the body, which benefits the rear passengers the most. Visual hallmarks of the Executive models are silver-coloured elements in the slats of the front air intakes and above the sideskirts.
The wheelbase is 1.2 in. longer than that of the predecessor – the shorter overhang at the front and the longer overhang at the rear lend visual dynamism. The more prominent sculpting of the side creates the customary Porsche waistline and sense of lightness.
The tinted glass panels of the new panoramic sunroof on the Panamera models create a particularly bright and pleasant lighting mood in the interior. The two-piece panoramic sunroof can be tilted and opened electrically at the front.
The interior has been completely restyled – and nevertheless remains typically Porsche . The center console ascends towards the front. The dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide. The analog rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster.
Also new is the control concept: Porsche Advanced Cockpit. The center console with Direct Touch Control has a glass-like surface with touch-sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions. In between: the compact gear selector. A high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard. In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control, the passengers in the rear also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the tachometer, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
Ambient lighting with rear interior lighting
Optional ambient lighting with rear interior lighting is an indirect lighting concept designed to enhance passenger comfort. You can choose from seven lighting colors and customize their intensity.
Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment
Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment connects to Porsche Communication Management (PCM) via WLAN to provide access to the radio, media, navigation system and vehicle functions of your Panamera. A wealth of entertainment awaits, thanks to two separate 10-inch touchscreen displays on the front seat backrests, an internal 32-GB memory, micro SD card slot, micro USB interface, Bluetooth® and NFC (near field communication). You also gain access to the Internet and up to one million apps and games.
Four-zone automatic climate control including touchscreen display in rear compartment
Welcome to your personal climate zone. Four-zone automatic climate control features individual temperature setting controls for the driver and front passenger, and separate ones for each seat in the rear, too.
An active carbon filter traps particles, pollen and odors and thoroughly filters fine dust out of the outside air before it can reach the interior and a new ionization function is available as an option – for improved air stream quality.
BOSE® Surround Sound System
The BOSE® Surround Sound System features 14 amplifier channels and offers a total output of 710 watts. Fourteen loudspeakers including a 160-watt passive subwoofer box ensure a balanced, faithfully reproduced acoustic pattern. The patented AudioPilot® Noise Compensation Technology continuously measures the ambient noise inside the vehicle and adapts music playback instantly and automatically.
Burmester ® High-End 3D Surround Sound System
The Burmester ® High- End 3D Surround Sound System delivers an acoustic performance worthy of one of the best concert halls in the world with a total output of 1,455 watts, 21 individually controlled loudspeakers including an active subwoofer with 400-watt class D digital amplifier, two-way center system and a total diaphragm surface area of more than 2,500 cm². Particularly impressive is the new 3D sound experience, created by the loudspeakers integrated into the roof pillars and by the use of a special 3D algorithm.
The new Porsche Communication Management (PCM)
PCM – as a basis for Porsche Connect – is your central control unit for audio, navigation and communication. The new generation with online navigation, cell-phone preparation and audio interfaces has a high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display that can be used for simple control of most vehicle functions.
The Connect Plus module ensures maximum connectivity in your Porsche .
In addition to its range of smart services, Porsche Connect offers two smartphone apps. The first, Porsche Car Connect, lets you use your smartphone or Apple Watch® to retrieve vehicle data and remotely control selected vehicle functions. The second app is the Porsche Connect app. This allows you to send chosen destinations to your Porsche before you start your journey.
The front seats offer a high level of comfort and provide support in fast corners without restricting freedom of movement. The seat height, squab and backrest angles and fore/aft position are electrically adjustable.
Adaptive sport seats
Available as an option, adaptive sport seats (18-way, electric) including memory package provide even better lateral support – thanks to the elevated side bolsters on the seat squab and backrest.
There are two separate rear seats with plenty of leg- and headroom and offering excellent lateral support.
On request, the power seats are also available with a massage function – front and rear. With five programs and five intensity levels to choose from.
Panamera models are equipped with a brake system having six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear. The brake discs are internally vented and slotted. This improves braking behavior even under extreme conditions and heat is dissipated more effectively.
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)
Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. For the new Panamera models, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB now have a diameter of 420 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance. PCCB features 10-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – to provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent. PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs.
Available as an option for all Panamera models, fitted as standard to the Panamera Turbo : LED headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) with dynamic range adjustment, dynamic cornering lights and speedsensitive headlight range control.
LED matrix headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)
PDLS Plus, which includes all the functions of PDLS, now comes for the first time with electronic cornering lights.
An infrared camera detects pedestrians or large wildlife before they are illuminated by the headlights. A thermal image in the instrument cluster warns the driver: the detected person or animal is highlighted in yellow – or in red and accompanied by an audible signal if within the critical range in front of the vehicle.
Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)
This system regulates the speed of your Panamera fully independently in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. Radar sensors on the front end scan the road ahead.
Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control
The system enhances adaptive cruise control with additional, innovative functions. It predictively optimises your speed. With the aid of high-resolution navigation data and information supplied by the radar and video sensors, Porsche InnoDrive determines speed limits and topographical road features.
