The unusual sportscars: Panamera dynamics with efficiency and luxury
Overview: Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Panamera Executive with an extended wheelbase
Porsche is continuing to expand the model line of the new Panamera: The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid benefits from the dynamics of the 918 Spyder super sportscar; the Executive models, which feature a wheelbase that has been extended by 150 millimetres, expand the body and equipment portfolio at the top end of the model line. Designed as a chauffeur saloon, this Porsche is available in the all-wheel drive versions Panamera 4 Executive (243 kW/330 hp), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive (340 kW/462 hp), Panamera 4S Executive (324 kW/440 hp) and Panamera Turbo Executive (404 kW/550 hp).
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid delivers a winning combination of performance-oriented hybrid drive and sustainable e-mobility with dynamic sportiness and luxurious driving comfort.
The Gran Turismo with the petrol-electric powertrain is redefining the term “balance” in its own way: On the one hand, it boasts 340 kW (462 hp) of system power, generated by the new 2.9-litre V6 biturbo engine and the electric motor. It also delivers a level of power that rivals that of a 911 Turbo: a torque of 700 Nm is immediately available from a stationary position. This ensures tremendous driving pleasure, and enables the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in just 4.6 seconds thanks to the boost function. On the other hand, it has a purely electric range of approximately 50 kilometres and an average fuel consumption of 2.5 l/100 km in the New European Driving Cycle (NEDC).
Panamera Executive: Only the best for passengers in the rear
The new Panamera Executive models are highly luxurious versions of the Gran Turismo with a longer wheelbase, combining dynamic performance with outstanding comfort. With this long version, Porsche is satisfying the needs of customers who demand maximum space in the rear. All four models share a wheelbase that has been extended by 150 millimetres, which is of particular benefit to the passengers in the rear. The added space provides extra legroom for even greater levels of comfort. In addition, all Executive models feature enhanced equipment levels. The standard equipment includes features such as adaptive air suspension, a panoramic roof system, electric comfort seats with comfort headrests in the rear, heated seats at the front and rear as well as rear roll-up sunblinds. The Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive feature a more comprehensive range of equipment as standard.
The range of models: Sportscars among luxury saloons
With regard to the model line, the fully redeveloped second generation of the Panamera was introduced in the summer of 2016. The Gran Turismo was first launched with the three all-wheel drive models, Panamera 4S (324 kW/440 hp), Panamera 4S Diesel (310 kW/422 hp) and Panamera Turbo (404 kW/550 hp). These were followed by the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, the Executive models, along with the Panamera and Panamera 4 standard models with a six-cylinder turbo engine (243 kW/330 hp). With these additions, the Porsche Panamera model line now comprises ten different models with power outputs ranging from 330 to 550 hp.
