A Closer Look at Performance

2018 Porsche Panamera in ChalkThe versatile engines of the Panamera models-from the turbocharged V6 in the Panamera and Panamera 4 to the twin-turbo V6 in the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and 4S as well as the V8-are equipped with a system that adjusts camshaft timing and valve lift. The turbochargers themselves are between the cylinder banks. What does that mean for the driver? It means a more rapid response and a more engaging driving experience.

The base Panamera is plenty powerful, producing 330 horsepower. The V8 engine can take this Porsche all the way up to 550 horsepower. The new 8-speed transmission provides drive force and acceleration expected of a sports car. Gears one through six have a sport feel, while the 7th and 8th gears have longer ratios, keeping engine speed low for efficient and comfortable driving at long distances.

Porsche Panamera Design

This sporty sedan truly stands out on the roadways, with its sculpted roof line and slightly longer wheelbase, which makes the Porsche design more prominent. On the Panamera Turbo, the Porsche Dynamic Light System features illuminating LED headlights and 4-point daytime running lights. Meanwhile, the tinted glass panels on the panoramic roof create pleasant and bright lighting.

The Panamera, Panamera 4, and Panamera 4 E-Hybrid models come with 19-inch wheels with high-performance tires. The exhaust systems feature a pair of tailpipes in brushed stainless steel. Wheels of up to 21 inches are available. In the Panamera Turbo model, the twin tailpipes and rear spoiler truly stand out and help provide the extra power in the Turbo models.

A Lavish Interior

2018 Porsche Panamera DesignWith a car like a Porsche, a lavish interior is always to be expected, and the 2018 Panamera certainly delivers on the luxury experience in the cabin. The restyled interior includes the center console ascending towards the front, with a flat dashboard and analog tachometer right in the middle of the instrument cluster.

The high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard, with a pair of high-resolution screens-one to the right and one to the left-displaying virtual instruments, maps, and other vital vehicle data. Rear passengers also have the option of having a touchscreen of their own.
