The all-new twin-turbo V8 engine in the Panamera Turbo is lighter and more compact than its predecessor and comes equipped with VarioCam Plus.
The adaptive cylinder control of the twinturbo V8 engine activates cylinders on demand. An example: you’re driving in town and have little need for power, your car will now operate on only four cylinders instead of eight. Once you demand greater power output again, all cylinders will immediately be reactivated.
New 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)
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.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM)
All Panamera models are equipped with 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.
With SPORT mode, you can swap from a comfort-oriented tuning to a sporty setup. In SPORT mode, PDK shifts up later and shifts down sooner. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and rear-axle steering also switch to SPORT mode, delivering harder damping and more direct turn-in – and even greater agility through corners.
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).
Four driving modes are available to choose from: 'Normal', 'SPORT', 'SPORT PLUS' and 'Individual' – for an even more personalized driving style.
In SPORT mode alone, the new Panamera delivers increased dynamics and more direct handling. In SPORT PLUS mode, the engine becomes even more responsive. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) are retuned for harder damping and more direct turn-in. The adaptive air suspension drops to Low Level and firms the spring rate. The rearaxle steering acts to provide even greater agility. Another function included in the package is Launch Control – for optimum acceleration from a standing start.
Pressing the button in the center of the mode switch primes the engine and transmission for the fastest possible unleashing of power (e.g. for overtaking).
In conjunction with the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is supplemented by a 'Sport' mode. It allows a significantly more sporty driving style, with PSM remaining active in the background.
Available for the Panamera models for the first time: optional rear-axle steering. It enhances performance and everyday driveability in equal measure.
During low-speed maneuvers, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This has the virtual effect of shortening the wheelbase.
During high-speed maneuvers, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This virtual extension of the wheelbase increases driving stability.
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. It registers the lateral inclination of the body induced by cornering from the very outset and acts to suppress it.
The new system sees the introduction of active electromechanical anti-roll bars. These provide a much faster response and are tuned for sporty driving.
In combination with new PDCC Sport, PTV Plus enhances driving dynamics and stability. As a function of steering angle and steering speed, accelerator pedal position, yaw rate and vehicle speed, it improves steering response and precision by strategic braking of the right or left rear wheel.
The Panamera Turbo is equipped as standard with 20-inch wheels. The material? Alloy, of course. The design? Classic and sporty. A choice of other 20- and 21-inch wheels is available on request.
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.
The silhouette and proportions of the new Panamera models are more Porsche than ever. Clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette emphasize the precision of the new design.
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 new Panamera Executive models combine sporty driving with a comfortable work zone in the rear compartment. Visual hallmarks of the Executive models are silver-coloured elements in the slats of the front air intakes and above the sideskirts.
The standard specification includes adaptive air suspension, a panoramic sunroof, side airbags in the rear compartment and a rear roll-up sunblind. Particularly pleasant: power seats in the rear compartment with seat heating and comfort headrests.
Panamera 4S Executive and Turbo Executive models are additionally equipped with rear-axle steering, ParkAssist including reversing camera and soft-close doors. Standard in the Panamera Turbo Executive : four-zone air conditioning system.
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.
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.
The front seats offer a high level of comfort and provide support in fast corners without restricting freedom of movement.
Adaptive sport seats
Available as an option, adaptive sport seats including memory package provide even better lateral support.
The most striking feature of the rear seats? There are two separate ones. With plenty of leg- and headroom.
On request, the power seats are also available with a massage function – front and rear.
Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment
New Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment offers a fully integrated and networked infotainment system for on the move.
Analog meets digital: the new instrument cluster of the Panamera models is reminiscent of Porsche motorsport history – and, at the same time, it is as modern as only it can be.
In the middle and in direct view of the driver is the analog tachometer. To the left and right, two high-resolution displays provide you with a variety of information as and when you need it.
Four-zone automatic climate control including touchscreen display in rear compartment
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.
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.
