The chassis of the new Panamera models performs this balancing act between sport and comfort effortlessly – even more impressively than before. This is because the chassis systems have been completely redesigned and, together with the even more precisely adjusted steering and the new generation of tires, now offer more of both. More performance, but above all more comfort – especially on more demanding tracks. Upgraded, partly optional chassis technologies further enhance the driving characteristics. For example, the Adaptive Air Suspension with three-chamber technology, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and Rear-Axle Steering. The integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control system, which centrally analyzes the driving situation in all three spatial dimensions, e.g. pitch, roll and yaw, calculates optimum driving states from these data and synchronizes all chassis systems in real time: the fourth dimension. The objective is to optimize overall performance, and to make the middle ground between sporty driving and comfort as expansive as possible.
At high speeds, 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. Rear-Axle Steering makes it clear that there is no contradiction between stability and agility or performance and suitability for everyday use. The result: greater maneuverability and driving safety in everyday use – and a significant increase in maximum driving performance.
For over 70 years, we’ve been working on being faster. Even when it comes to slowing down. That's why all models – with the exception of the Panamera Turbo S and Turbo S E-Hybrid models – are equipped with a brake system with six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the rear. The single-piece brake calipers are enclosed. This makes them lighter yet highly resistant to deformation. The pedal travel is tight, the pressure point precise and the braking distance impressively short.
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 other words, maximum responsiveness – for a period of approximately 20 seconds.
Whether Panamera, Panamera Executive or Panamera Sport Turismo – the silhouette and proportions are unmistakably Porsche. Athletic, streamlined, with clear contours and powerful muscles.
The long wheelbase, shorter overhang at the front and longer overhang at the rear already lend visual dynamism. The prominent sculpting of the side profile creates the customary Porsche waistline and sense of lightness.
The Panamera Executive models combine sporty driving and comfortable working in the rear. The body has been lengthened by 0.59 in., which benefits the rear passengers in particular.
Silver-colored elements above the side skirts are visual features of the Executive models. The air outlet trims in the front fenders are in High-Gloss Silver.
The fact that four people can appreciate a sporty yet comfortable drive in the Panamera is already old news in the automotive luxury class. In the Sport Turismo, with the standard 4+1 seat concept, a fifth person can enjoy the Panamera driving experience. Although not designed as a full-size individual seat, the extra space does provide a neat solution for carrying an additional passenger on short to medium distance trips.
The fact that stylish design and everyday practicality are not mutually exclusive is demonstrated by the large tailgate and the low loading edge, which makes it easier to integrate more than just everyday things into the Panamera Sport Turismo. Thanks, above all, to – for a sports car – an extraordinary capacity of up to 49.0 ft3.
The front seats offer a high level of comfort and provide support in fast corners without restricting freedom of movement. The seat height, cushion and backrest angles and fore/aft position are electrically adjustable.
The 14-way, electric Power Seats offer additional cushion length adjustment and four-way lumbar support for driver and front passenger. The memory function stores settings for seats, steering column, both exterior mirrors and other personalized in-car settings.
The 18-way, electric Adaptive Sport Seats offer even better lateral support – thanks to raised side bolsters on the cushion and backrest. Electrically adjustable, they offer comfort on long journeys and made-to-measure lateral support in corners.
The luggage compartment of the Panamera and Panamera Executive models offers you a volume of up to 17.6 ft³ liters depending on the model (E-Hybrid models up to 14.3 ft³) and up to 18.3 ft³ in the Panamera Sport Turismo models.
The large, automatic tailgate with individually adjustable opening height is standard in all models. It opens and closes conveniently at the push of a button.
At the rear, the Panamera Executive models are equipped as standard with electric power seats including heated seats and comfort headrests with contoured side bolsters.
A large rear center console is optionally available for the Executive models, which offers additional storage space as well as a further smartphone compartment, additional USB interfaces and a 12 V and 230 V socket.
