grey porsche panamera 4 on the road


The new Panamera retains the characteristic lines and proportions of the model line but with an even more expressive and sporting look. Up front, an additional air intake above the number plate compensates for the increased air requirement of the drive systems. The redesigned window line in the sideview reinforces the character of the four-door sports car; and the outer edges of the rear window are flush with the contour of the body, creating harmonious lines at the rear of the car. The technical yet elegant, dynamic design of the new Panamera gives the model line’s attractive proportions a fresh update. A wide range of driver assistance systems and a fundamentally redesigned, driver-centred interior to enhance the driving experience.


The Panamera has often been called a ‘family-friendly Porsche 911’, and it has the performance figures to match. An upgraded 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 engine produces 440hp, which is passed through to all four wheels via an 8-speed PDK gearbox, and 500Nm of torque. This translates to a 0 – 62mph in just 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 168mph. The optional choice for rear-axle steering further improves agility, making it easier to turn tight corners around town. Porsche’s Sport Chrono package offers an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine, and transmission, and adds Launch Control making it even quicker off the mark.


As expected with all Porsche models, the Panamera 4 has an impressive roster of tech to enhance comfort and driver engagement now with extended standard equipment compared to its predecessor. This includes two-valve dual-chamber air suspension, LED matrix headlights, ParkAssist and a driving mode switch on the steering wheel. The new Porsche Driver Experience cockpit concept features the ideal balance between digital and analogue control. A 12.6” curved digital display projects all key driver information directly in your field of vision. While the instrument cluster and central display are tailored to the driver’s seat, there is an optional 10.9-inch touchscreen display on the passenger’s side.
