The new Porsche Panamera, redeveloped from the ground up, is a sports car and luxury saloon in one. Its engines and transmission were re-engineered, the chassis perfected, the display and operating concept interpreted for the future with multitouch controls, and its design embodies core brand values even more.

The Panamera was developed for sports car drivers who appreciate four doors and four seats. And for saloon drivers who prefer sporty handling. Opposites which the Panamera reconciles in superior style. It is a sports car and luxury saloon in one – Gran Turismo rethought and realigned.

The exterior character of the Panamera has also been sharpened with the advent of the second generation. It is based on very dynamic proportions. The new Panamera is 5,049 millimetres long (gain of 34 mm), 1,937 millimetres wide (6 mm wider) and 1,423 millimetres high (5 mm taller).

The Panamera exhibits a completely new display and control concept. In many areas, touch-sensitive surfaces replace classic hard keys, and high-resolution displays merge into the interior. The digitalisation of the Porsche interior, which began with the 918 Spyder, has reached the luxury saloon segment aboard the Panamera in the form of the new Porsche Advanced Cockpit.

The Panamera is equipped with many standard and optional assistance systems, which make life while driving more convenient and safer. The key new systems include a night vision assistant. It utilises a thermal imaging camera to detect people and large animals and displays a colour highlighted warning indicator in the cockpit.

For the market launch, the new Gran Turismo from Porsche is making its debut in the versions Panamera Turbo, Panamera 4S and Panamera 4S Diesel. All models have new engines, permanent all-wheel drive and a new eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission (PDK) on board. A four-litre V8 petrol engine that delivers 404 kW (550 hp) powers the Panamera Turbo and a 2.9 litre V6 petrol engine with 324 kW (440 hp) drives the Panamera 4S. In the Panamera 4S Diesel, a four-litre V8 turbodiesel with 310 kW (422 hp) generates powerful thrust.

In keeping with the overall concept of the new Panamera, the new chassis also combines the cruising comfort of a luxury saloon with the performance of a sports car. This is achieved by supplementing the impressive basic layout with a large number of innovative systems: in its new rear-axle steering, Porsche brings the steering precision and handling of sports cars to the Gran Turismo class for the first time.

On the exterior, the performance versions of the Panamera differ in such areas as the wheels and tailpipes of the exhaust system. Porsche has broadened the wheel range for the Panamera by one inch compared to the previous model. The 4S models now have 19-inch alloy wheels as standard. On the Panamera Turbo, 20-inch alloy wheels are now used.

The chances are relatively low that someone would ever encounter two Panamera cars that are configured identically. For the Panamera, Porsche offers a very large range of combinations of twelve body colours, ten interior colour and leather schemes, a wide variety of wheels and optional equipment.
