Crafted for the discerning sporty driver who seeks a saloon with a performance edge, the Panamera Turbo offers leek and harmonious contours that you might normally expect on a two-seater. Continuing such gorgeous proportions, are rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette to emphasise the precision of the new design.
And as you’d expect of a Porsche Turbo, the power is prodigious. It delivers a power output of 404 kW (550 hp), whilst the new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine featuring twin-scroll turbochargers, VarioCam Plus and adaptive cylinder control produces 22 kW (30 hp) more than the engine in the predecessor model – despite a reduction in fuel consumption. You’ll reach 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 190 mph. Pure Porsche.
There are numerous systems on board the Panamera Turbo that make every journey safer and more comfortable.
Systems such as Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC), Lane Assist with Turn Assist, Lane Keeping Assist including traffic sign recognition and cornering notification. To name but a few.
Whilst Night View provides the driver with information even beyond the range of the headlights. An infrared camera detects pedestrians or large wildlife before they are illuminated by the headlights.
DesignThe sports car amongst saloon cars, the proportions of the Panamera Turbo are undeniably Porsche. With clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette emphasise the precision of the new design. A welcome feature in hotter climes is the tinted glass panels of the new panoramic sunroof – creating a particularly bright and pleasant lighting mood in the interior. The two-piece panoramic sunroof can be tilted and opened electrically at the front.
The interior has been completely restyled – and yet remains true to its Porsche DNA. Details such as the centre console ascending towards the front – and the elegant dashboard is shaped to be flat and purposefully wide. Altogether it offers plenty of room with plenty of comfort and innovations throughout.
TechnologyThe all-new twin-turbo V8 engine in the Panamera Turbo is lighter and more compact than its predecessor and comes equipped with VarioCam Plus. Its two turbochargers are now positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo – delivering a more rapid response.
Translating the breathtaking drive force 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine is a newly developed 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). This gives it the heart-stopping acceleration you’d expect of such a sports car. Whilst every precise gearshifts takes place in milliseconds with no discernible interruption in the flow of power.
