Porsche successfully extended their marque back in 2009 into the executive saloon segment with the launch of the Panamera Gran Turismo. Now 2013 see’s a new chapter in the design and development of the four seater sport scar with the launch of the the “second generation” of Panamera led by a new S E-Hyrbid model with a combined electric and fuel power output of 416 bhp.
As well as the new S E-Hybrid two new luxurious models the Panamera 4S Exectutive and Turbo Executive will be added to the lineup and will feature an extra 5.9 inches to the wheelbase giving better rear seating space. Although the base models with stick with the 3.6 V6 engine it has been tweaked to 310bhp giving the cars a 0-60 mph time of 6 seconds for the Panamera and 5.8 seconds for the Panamera 4.
Both the the 4 and 4S models will benefit from an all-new 3.0 twin turbo V6 engine replacing the 4.8 V8 non-turbo with increased fuel efficiency and no reduction in power. This new 3.0 unit produces 420bhp and will take the S from standstill to 60mph in just 4.9 seconds and the 4S to the same speed in 4.6 with a top speed of 178mph for the S and 177mph for the 4S. Its worth noting that 0-60 times and top speeds are improved across the range with the optional “Sport Chrono pack” which tunes the throttle response and handling characteristics of the car.
All models will be receiving a new exterior inspired by the new generation 911 with more prominent lines at the front, re-designed headlamps, larger front air intakes for better engine cooling and a larger rear spoiler and a new rear light design.
There will be no changes to the interior of the car this time round with customers still being able to choose between a nice range of leather, carbon fiber and Alcantara for the already luxuriously designed interior.
