The new Porsche Panamera now covers an even wider spectrum. It combines the performance of a sports car with the comfort of an exclusive saloon.

With the 463 kW (630 PS; Panamera Turbo S models: Fuel consumption combined 11.1 – 10.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 253– 245 g/km (as of 08/2020)) Panamera Turbo S, the sports car manufacturer successfully supports its claim to best-in-class performance. The new top-of-the-range model betters the performance figures of the previous Panamera Turbo by a wide margin. Porsche also continues to pursue its E-Performance strategy. The Panamera 4S E-Hybrid is a new addition to the range of plug-in hybrids, offering a completely new drive system with 412 kW (560 PS; Panamera 4S E-Hybrid models: Fuel consumption combined 2.3 – 2.0 l/100 km, Electricity consumption combined 19.5 – 17.4 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 53 – 47 g/km (as of 08/2020)) system output. Compared with the previous hybrid models, the all-electric range has been boosted by up to 30 per cent. Comfort and sportiness both benefit from enhanced chassis components and control systems in combination with the new-generation steering control and tyres.

With a power output of 463 kW (630 PS; Panamera Turbo S models: Fuel consumption combined 11.1 – 10.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 253– 245 g/km (as of 08/2020)) and a torque of 820 newton metres, the new Panamera Turbo S offers 59 kW (80 PS) more power and 50 Nm more torque than the previous flagship Turbo with combustion engine. This has a very positive effect on driving performance: in Sport Plus mode, the Turbo S model accelerates from 0 – 100 km/h in just 3.1 seconds. Developed in Weissach and built in Zuffenhausen, the familiar four-litre V8 biturbo engine has been comprehensively overhauled to enable the car to achieve a top speed of 315 km/h (Panamera Turbo S models: Fuel consumption combined 11.1 – 10.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 253– 245 g/km (as of 08/2020)).

In order to transfer the enormous power to the road in a controlled manner and maximise cornering performance, the three-chamber air suspension, the Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and the roll stabilisation system Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) including Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) have been customised to each specific model and optimised accordingly.

The new Panamera Turbo S has already proven its uncompromising performance capability on the legendary Nürburgring Nordschleife: test driver Lars Kern completed the 20.832 kilometre-long lap on the most demanding race track in the world in exactly 7:29.81 minutes – the new official record in the “executive cars” class.

Increased sportiness and comfort thanks to optimised chassis systems

The V8 biturbo engine in the Panamera GTS was optimised with a specific focus on its power delivery. With 353 kW (480 PS; Panamera GTS models: Fuel consumption combined 11.1 – 10.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 253 – 244 g/km (as of 08/2020)) and 620 Nm, the new Panamera GTS delivers 15 kW (20 PS) more power than its predecessor. The power output continuously increases up to close to the engine speed limit. The power delivery is therefore like that of a classic sports car with naturally aspirated engine. The traditional V8 sound characteristics are even more prominent than before thanks to the new standard sports exhaust system featuring asymmetrically positioned rear silencers.

The new Panamera and Panamera 4 are now equipped with the familiar 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine in all markets worldwide. Delivering 243 kW (330 PS; Panamera models: Fuel consumption combined 8.8 – 8.6 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 201– 197 g/km; Panamera 4 models: Fuel consumption combined 9.0 – 8.7 l/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 205 – 199 g/km (all as of 08/2020)) and 450 Nm, the performance remains unchanged.

The chassis and control systems have been geared towards a sporty and also comfortable character for all new Panamera models. Some systems have even been applied completely from scratch. For example, the revamped Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system results in a noticeable improvement in damping comfort, while the control of the electric roll stabilisation system Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) ensures improved body stability. There is also a new equipment generation for the steering control and tyres.

4S E-Hybrid with 17.9 kWh battery and an electric range of up to 54 km

Porsche is presenting a further performance-oriented plug-in hybrid model with the new Panamera 4S E-Hybrid. The intelligent combination of the 100 kW (136 PS) electric motor integrated into the eight-speed dual-clutch PDK transmission and the 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine with 324 kW (440 PS) generates a system output of 412 kW (560 PS; Panamera 4S E-Hybrid models: Fuel consumption combined 2.3 – 2.0 l/100 km, Electricity consumption combined 19.5 – 17.4 kWh/100 km; CO2 emissions combined 53 – 47 g/km (as of 08/2020)) and a maximum system torque of 750 Nm.
