The scope of the Porsche model continues to expand with the new Panamera: The new V6 turbocharger is an efficient, agile entry-level engine outside the impressive range. Power is up by 20 hp from the corresponding engine of the previous Panamera generation. At the same time, Porsche was able to reduce the consumption of this completely redeveloped six-cylinder petrol engine by up to 1.0 l/100 km. The new 330-hp (243kW; Panamera: combined fuel consumption 7.6 – 7.5 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 173 – 171 g/km; Panamera 4: combined fuel consumption 7.8 – 7.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 177 – 175 g/km; Panamera 4 Executive: combined fuel consumption 7.9 – 7.8 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 180 – 178 g/km) engine is combined with rear-wheel drive in the Panamera and all-wheel drive in the Panamera 4, plus a long wheelbase in the Panamera 4 Executive.
While the Panamera and Panamera 4 with 330 hp redefine what can be expected at the entry-level end, the Executive models of the big Porsche, with their 150 millimetre longer wheelbase, expand the body and equipment portfolio at the top end of the model line. Designed as a chauffeur saloon, this Porsche is available in the all-wheel drive versions Panamera 4 Executive, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive, Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive.
The New Panamera 4S Executive
The new Porsche Panamera executive version is more fully equipped. The standard features a large panoramic sunroof, heated and multi-seat electric comfort seats before and after adjustment and an adaptive and electronically controlled air suspension damping system (PASM / PASM). The roll-up sunblind behind the headrests in the rear also comes as standard. The standard equipment of the Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive is even more comprehensive: Among other things, both models benefit from rear-axle steering and soft-close doors. As the most powerful model, the Panamera Turbo Executive is equipped with standard features such as four-zone climate control, LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and ambient lighting.
As an option, all Porsche Panamera Executive models are available with a newly developed, large rear centre console, which can also be equipped with two integrated folding tables and an inductive antenna connection for an additional smartphone, depending on the market. Similarly to the existing Panamera models, the exterior of the Executive versions can be further individualised with a Sport design package.
Panamera Can Be Used As A Fully Digitalised Workplace
Another useful device option, especially for executive versions often used as a driver sedan in China and the United States, is the latest generation of Porsche back seat entertainment. The 10.1-inch display integrated in the front seats of the backrests can be separated for a wide range of uses, and when needed, they transform the Panamera into a fully digital workplace. High-quality display can also be used as a Tablet PC out of the car.
About the model, the complete re-development of the second-generation Panamera was introduced in the summer of 2016. The four all-wheel drive models Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S Diesel (310 kW / 422 hp; combined fuel consumption 6.8 – 6.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions: 178 – 176 g/km), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo are already available on the market. With the addition of the new 330 hp versions and the Executive models, the Porsche Panamera range now comprises ten different models with power outputs from 330 to 550 hp.
