Porsche Panamera Turbo

Courage Changes Everything.

The Panamera. It changed everything. Sporting spirit – in business and in personal life – found its automotive counterpart. The courage to perform found a matching performer.

Porsche engineers have demonstrated their courage with the Panamera concept. By continually re-evaluating and reinventing. By reconciling apparent contradictions: performance and comfort, dynamics and efficiency, career and family. And by forever remaining true to it’s roots.

Concept

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 emphasise the precision of the new design.

Characteristic features of all Panamera models: the light strip on the rear end and the slimline three-dimensional LED taillights with four-spot brake lights. The extending rear spoiler integrated into the body reduces lift at the rear axle at high speeds.

Chassis

The chassis of the new Panamera models performs this balancing act between sport and comfort effortlessly – and in the most masterful way possible: with further-developed advance chassis technologies.

Technologies like rear-axle steering (optional) and integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control system, which centrally analyses the driving situation in all three spatial dimensions, e.g. pitch, roll and yaw, computes optimum driving states from these data, and synchronises all chassis systems in real time: the fourth dimension.

Comfort

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).

Drive

“That’s the way we’ve always done it.” Not really a sentence to inspire change. Except at Porsche. That’s because each new generation of engines higher-performing are more dynamic and more efficient than the last. The new generation engines of the Panamera models now takes the next significant step forwards.

The 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine of the Panamera Turbo is equipped with twinscroll turbines. The exhaust streams arrive at the turbine wheel through physically separate channels – for optimised gas cycles. The result: 404kW of power and higher torque, even in the low rpm range.

Safety

Even greater foresight is achieved with LED main headlights featuring matrix beam technology. Eighty-four individually controlled LEDs adapt to the situation ahead by switching off or dimming accordingly. Vehicles in front or in the oncoming lane are no longer dazzled, while the areas in between and to the side continue to receive full illumination. Not only are the lights selectively dimmed to fade out oncoming vehicles, the area to the right of the light void is lit more brightly for better guidance of the driver’s visual attention.
