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.
The optional Rear-Axle Steering (standard in the Panamera 4S Executive, Panamera 4S E-Hybrid Executive and the Panamera Turbo S and Turbo S E-Hybrid models) increases both performance and suitability for everyday use. At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This leads to a virtual shortening of the wheelbase. The turning circle is reduced, agility is increased and parking becomes noticeably easier to manage.
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.
With the Panamera, we consistently went our own way, always stayed true to our roots – and have thus injected the typical Porsche DNA into the luxury sedan segment. With the new Panamera, we are now pursuing this path just as consistently.
Typical of Porsche: the sophisticated sports car ergonomics with ascending center console, flat dashboard and the analog tachometer in the center of the instrument cluster. The new steering wheel generation, in conjunction with the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept, offers quick access to the most important functions.
The Panamera Platinum Edition also intrigues with small details: the model designation and the “PORSCHE” logo are presented in Satin Platinum.
Performance styling paired with excellent dynamics: the 21-inch Exclusive Design Sport Wheels and the side air outlet trims are also painted in Satin Platinum.
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.
Those who drive a Porsche want to drive. The more sporty, more comfortable, more efficient and more safe the drive the better. Porsche InnoDrive supports you when driving in a completely new way. The system enhances Adaptive Cruise Control with additional, innovative functions.
Another feature of Porsche InnoDrive including Adaptive Cruise Control is Traffic Jam Assist. It eases the burden on the driver when congestion is encountered on major inter-urban roads and motorways.
At speeds of up to approximately 37 mph, the system uses gentle steering inputs to keep the vehicle in the middle of the lane, regulates the distance from vehicles in front and follows the queue ahead where system limitations allow. To do this, Traffic Jam Assist tracks highway markings and other vehicles on the carriageway. The benefit? Appreciable stress relief and greater comfort on long journeys.
The Head-Up Display is part of the standard equipment for the Panamera Turbo S and Turbo S E-Hybrid models and is available on request for all other Panamera models. It offers high-quality and full-color projection of relevant driving information into the driver's field of view. With projection technology, the information is perceived to appear 7.5 ft. in front of the driver. The display position can be adjusted to the driver's height and position in PCM. The driver is less distracted and can pay more attention to the road. Visualized information includes driving speed, engine speed, incoming calls and navigation. Road signs, hazard warnings and Sport Chrono information can also be displayed, depending on the vehicle specification. Displayed content can be individually customized.
