New Porsche Panamera Turbo
Porsche recently unveiled their G3, which comprises the Panamera 4 and New Porsche Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid models. The 4 is driven by an engine equipped with twin turbines producing 348 bhp and 369 lb-ft of torque; meanwhile, the Turbo E-Hybrid uses an 8-speed PDK gearbox combined with twin turbo V8s that produce 671 bhp and 686 lb-ft of torque. However, this model is by no means their most potent version.
Thomas Friemuth, Porsche’s chief of its New Porsche Panamera Turbo range of products, told us that its all-fat Turbo S E-Hybrid would boast “significantly more horsepower.” By comparison, its predecessor had 690 bhp. Additionally, there will likely be V8-engine GTS models for drivers as well as V6 hybrids and basic rear-wheel-drive V6 cars to complete its lineup (known collectively as “Panamera’). No word yet on whether there will be an all-fat Turbo S version this time; did you hear that? We didn’t.
Important news: the Panamera Sport Turismo has been discontinued and won’t be available as an estate car anymore, much to my regret!
However, four-door PHEVs now reach 56 miles on one charge while driving within city limits, compared to only 34 in previous generations. This increase can be attributed to several factors, including larger batteries, improved efficiency, aerodynamics, regular braking performance, and decreased resistance against rolling resistance; an incremental improvement was observed.
Porsche asserts it has completely revamped the suspension system in the New Porsche Panamera Turbo. All models have air suspension as standard; the default setup includes two air chambers and twin-valve dampers that can be adjusted independently to adjust compression and rebound. The Porsche Active Ride system uses only one air chamber. In contrast, twin-valve dampers combined with an electrohydraulic system running at 48 volts allow each wheel to be operated individually for enhanced party tricks in your Panamera.
“Comfort Access” mode raises the New Porsche Panamera Turbo by 5.5cm when stopped, as well as dynamic ground clearance, which lowers it at speed, active cornering (allowing lean into turns), and acceleration and brake comfort, which uses its active suspension system to keep the vehicle level during acceleration and braking. Christoph Bittner, who works for Porsche as a chassis expert, considers the Panamera “the most efficient chassis available on the market.”
Regarding its interior, we are all familiar. Porsche chose to showcase the Panamera’s screen earlier this month; click these blue words for a full version download. However, essential features include a 12.6-inch driver display and a 12.3-inch central touchscreen, with optional 10.9-inch passenger screens available.
The Chinese market will receive the long-wheelbase Executive version with the latest generation. At the same time, America will experience something revolutionary: 21-inch wheels equipped with a centre lock as standard on the New Porsche Panamera Turbo for the first time! Please don’t take our word for it; these new Panameras are brand new.
