Porsche debuts new additions to its Panamera model line
10 Nov 2016 - 15:25
Doha. At the 2016 LA Auto Show, Porsche will present a new 330 hp V6 turbo petrol engine in rear wheel and all-wheel drive, along with an Executive model, which offers an extended body option. The V6 turbo derivative is a highly efficient and agile addition to an already diverse range of engines that power the segment-leading four-door saloon. It features a 20 hp increase from the corresponding engine of the previous Panamera generation and a reduced consumption of up to 1.0 l/100 km. In addition, three Executive versions of the Panamera will be introduced at the same time.
While the Panamera and Panamera 4 redefine the entry to Porsche’s luxury saloon range, the Executive derivatives, with their 150 millimetre longer wheelbase, expand the model line’s body and equipment portfolio. Designed as a chauffeur car, this Porsche is available as an all-wheel drive version in the Panamera 4 Executive (330 hp), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive (462 hp), Panamera 4S Executive (440 hp) and Panamera Turbo Executive (550 hp).
The new Executive range is equipped with various standard features, including a large panoramic roof, heated comfort seats with multi-way electrical adjustment in the front and rear, as well as adaptive air suspension with an electronically controlled damper system (Porsche Active Suspension Management). Roll-up sunblinds behind the headrests in the rear also come as standard.
Meanwhile, the Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive benefit from even more features, such as rear-axle steering and soft-close doors. The most powerful model is equipped with four-zone climate control, LED main headlights, including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), and ambient lighting as standard.
Furthermore, customers can choose from a range of optional equipment, such as newly developed large rear centre console, which can also be equipped with two integrated folding tables, and an inductive antenna connection for an additional smartphone. The exterior of the Executive versions can be further individualised with a Sport Design package.
The latest generation of Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment is available, with the 10.1-inch displays integrated in the backrests of the front seats that can be detached for enhanced convenience. They can also be used as tablets on the move outside of the vehicle.
The newly announced derivatives are available for order now. First deliveries can be expected during the second quarter of 2017, whilst the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid versions arrive mid-summer next year.
