The new Panamera underscores its exceptional positioning with a expressive exterior design language signified by tighter lines, more pronounced contours and newly-shaped body elements. Boosting performance and efficiency is a core competency at Porsche. In developing the new Panamera, this led to an entirely new engine based on the downsizing concept: a V6 engine with 3.0 litres displacement and twin turbocharging. The V6 bi turbo replaces the previous 4.8 litre V8 engine in the Panamera S and Panamera 4S. Its basic parameters themselves are indicators of progress: 20 bhp more power and a further 20 Newton metres of torque, combined with up to 18 per cent better fuel economy compared with the V8. This not only gives the driver a more powerful and efficient engine; turbocharging results in the maximum torque of 520 Nm being available over a very broad range of engine speeds for a superior and uniform power curve, even at low revs.

The majority of Panamera models feature the seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung PDK dual-clutch transmission. The eight-speed Tiptronic S automatic is used in the Panamera Diesel and Panamera S E-Hybrid, which creates optimal conditions for further development of other efficiency functions. For example, the extended start-stop function now deactivates the engine earlier while coasting to a stop, which saves more fuel. With the exception of the Panamera GTS, models with PDK also offer a coasting function in which the clutches open in overrun, the engine idles, and the vehicle coasts freely. This function can significantly improve fuel economy, especially when travelling on the motorway.

Standard equipment on all models includes Bi-Xenon headlights, multi-function steering wheel, automatic tailgate opening, leather interior, dual-zone automatic climate control, front and rear parking sensors, cruise control, Porsche Communication Management satellite navigation with seven-inch touch-screen, Digital radio, eight-way powered front seat adjustment, front and rear electric windows and a three-year warranty. Four-wheel drive models add Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive.

Our Verdict

The Panamera is classified between midsize and full-size in terms of the overall dimension. This is Porsche’s first 4-door coupe. Without a concern for competitors, this car is ambitious and is up against some of the most luxurious cars in the world. The exterior of this car can be a bit awkward and not to the likes of many. It is versatile as it has the hatchback trunk. The Panamera leaves a lasting impression on buyers as it is exhilarating to drive. There is no other car which can be handled with such agility as the Panamera. However, expensive to own, tag of the Porsche is an attraction.
