Presenting the all new 2017 Porsche Panamera 4S with a Twin Turbo V6 engine. 0 – 60mph in 4.4 seconds (4.2 seconds with Launch Control). Top speed is 289 km/h (179 mph).
The interior has been completely restyled – and nevertheless remains typically Porsche. The centre console ascends towards the front. The dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide. The analogue rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster.
Also new is the control concept: Porsche Advanced Cockpit. The centre console with Direct Touch Control has a surface in glass look featuring touch-sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions. In between: the compact gear selector. A high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard. In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control, the passengers in the rear also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the rev counter, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
Above all, though, there is plenty of space and comfort. Not so typical of a sports car. Absolutely typical of the new Panamera.
The Exterior Design
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.
The wheelbase is 3 cm longer than that of the predecessor – the shorter overhang at the front and the longer overhang at the rear lend visual dynamism. The more prominent sculpting of the side creates the customary Porsche waistline and sense of lightness.
A stunning identifying feature at the front: LED main headlights with four-spot daytime running lights, including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) on the Panamera Turbo.
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.
Fuel consumption – Panamera 4S Diesel: Urban in l/100 km (mpg) 7.9 (35.8); Extra-urban in l/100 km (mpg) 5.9 – 5.8 (47.9 – 48.7); Combined in l/100 km (mpg) 6.8 – 6.7 (41.5 – 42.2); CO2 emissions in g/km 178 – 176.
