Exclusive for China: Porsche Panamera Executive
Entrance into the world of the long-wheelbase luxury saloon
Exclusively for the Chinese market, from October 2017 there will be a new long version of the sports saloon Panamera. The new Porsche Panamera Executive with a 243-kW (330-hp) three-litre V6 turbo engine and rear-wheel drive is characterised by the extended and individualised standard equipment of the Executive range at an attractive price. The Executive models are identified by small yet elegant embellishments on the exterior of the vehicles: On the sides, there are high-gloss silver strips in the door sills complemented by matching air outlet trims in the front wings. The front section features a decorative strip on the air intake, again in high-gloss silver. In addition, the new Panamera for the Chinese market features the word “Executive” in silver lettering in the C-pillar area.
All long-wheelbase Panamera models are equipped with a transparent panoramic roof as standard. With a length of 1,780 millimetres and width of up to 1,200 millimetres, this is the largest glass roof ever featured on a Porsche vehicle. The front section of the roof can be raised up and fully opened. The transparent roof can also be covered with two internal blinds.
In addition, all four Executive models benefit from adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). The extended standard equipment includes comfort seats with multi-way electrical adjustment and comfort headrests in the rear, heated seats front and rear and a roll-up sunblind behind the headrests in the rear. An optional massage function is also available for all four seats. Ten air cushions in each backrest provide a relaxing massage at the push of a button, with a choice of five programmes and five intensity levels. Side airbags in the rear, included as standard, ensure high levels of safety. A large centre console with an additional smartphone slot and inductive antenna interface has been specially designed for the Executive models. The centre console can be ordered as an option.
Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment with high-end tablets
One of the highlights in the rear is the optional Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment (RSE). Especially when used as a chauffeur saloon, this creates a convenient high-tech workplace in the rear of the Panamera Executive thanks to the outstanding connectivity of the Rear Seat Entertainment. On longer journeys with the family, younger passengers will be delighted by the multifunctional features of the optional system.
At the heart of the Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment are two 10.1-inch touchscreens. These high-resolution, non-reflecting screens (1,920 × 1,200 pixels) attach to the backrests of the front seats and can also be used outside the Panamera. Background: The displays are two fully functional tablets with a robust, high-quality design that is tailored to match the interior of the Panamera.
The Panamera Rear Seat Entertainment uses the Android operating system. It features 32 GB of internal flash memory, which can be extended by means of a micro SD card. The touchscreens also feature a camera for conducting video calls and chats. Sound is played back via the speakers integrated in the touchscreens, the vehicle sound system or Porsche Bluetooth® headphones.
A wide range of digital sources can be used: PCM media can be accessed via the SD card, Jukebox, CD/DVD drive and USB stick. Rear passengers can also access the radio and optional TV tuner. Vehicle data can also be displayed, as well as the current navigation route with corresponding additional information. The Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment can also be used to enter the destination for the navigation system of the Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
