All-New Porsche Panamera

 

Performance

The all-new twin-turbo V6 engine in the Panamera 4S is lighter and more compact than its predecessor and comes equipped with VarioCam Plus. The two turbochargers are now positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo - delivering a more rapid response. The direct fuel injection in the new generation of engines is realized by a central injector inside the combustion chamber. This optimizes both the mixture injection and combustion - for greater efficiency and increased power delivery.

 

New 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Getting more power from an engine is worthwhile only when you know where it needs to go. And how quickly and effectively. The latest Panamera models are therefore equipped with a newly developed 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the respective engine into the acceleration expected of a sports car.

 

Porsche Traction Management (PTM)

All Panamera models are equipped with Porsche Traction Management (PTM). This active all-wheel drive with electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch ensures the optimum distribution of drive force whatever the driving situation – for excellent acceleration power on long straights, through tight corners and on road surfaces with varying grip.

The multi-plate clutch regulates the distribution of drive force between the rear axle and the front axle. Driving conditions are constantly monitored, enabling the system to respond to a variety of situations. Sensors check, among other variables, the rotation speeds of all four wheels, the longitudinal and lateral acceleration of the vehicle, and the steering angle.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)

PASM is an electronic damping control system. It actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. The effect is to reduce vehicle body movement and thereby improve comfort in all four seats.

SPORT mode

With SPORT mode, you can swap from a comfort-oriented tuning to a sporty setup. The electronic engine management system demands a sharper response. Engine dynamics become more direct. In SPORT mode, PDK shifts up later and shifts down sooner. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and rear-axle steering also switch to SPORT mode, delivering harder damping and more direct turn-in - and even greater agility through corners.

 

 

Cockpit feeling. Analog meets digital.

Directly in the driver's field of view: The analog tachometer in the middle of the instrument cluster. On the right and left, two high-resolution displays which show the virtual instruments, maps and other information for the driver, and are operated using the new multi-function steering wheel.

A high-resolution presentation.

The newly designed interior of the Panamera is clear, modern and tidy. In the dashboard between the driver and front passenger, a high-resolution 12-inch touch display is integrated through which most of the vehicle settings can easily be controlled.

Comfortable. In all 4 seats.

All passengers in the rear have access to an additional touch display in conjunction with the optional 4-zone climate control. As well as individual temperature control, it is also possible to operate additional comfort and infotainment functions using the touch-sensitive display. Above all, however, there is plenty of space and comfort. Atypical for a sports car: But typical of the new Panamera.

 

 

Night View

Night View provides the driver with information even beyond the range of the headlights. An infrared camera detects pedestrians or large wildlife before they are illuminated by the headlights. A thermal image in the instrument cluster warns the driver: the detected person or animal is highlighted in yellow - or in red and accompanied by an audible signal if within the critical range in front of the vehicle

Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC)

This system regulates the speed of your Panamera fully independently in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. Radar sensors on the front end scan the road ahead. Let's imagine you've selected a cruising speed but have begun to gain on the vehicle in front because it is driving more slowly - the system reduces the speed of your vehicle by restricting throttle or gently applying the brakes until your chosen distance from the vehicle in front is restored.

Your Panamera now continues to maintain this distance from the vehicle ahead. If it brakes even more, Adaptive Cruise Control will reduce your speed accordingly - even down to a halt. As soon as the road ahead clears, your vehicle will accelerate back up to the cruising speed originally set.
