Does a sporty saloon really have to look like a saloon? Or can it look rather more athletic? With a taut roof line, for example, that displays a sleek and harmonious contour more likely to be associated with a two-seater?
The silhouette and proportions of the new Panamera models are more Porsche than ever. Clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette emphasise the precision of the new design.
The all-new twin-turbo V6 engine in the Panamera 4S and twin-turbo V8 engine in the Panamera Turbo are lighter and more compact than their predecessors and come equipped with VarioCam Plus.
Their two turbochargers are now positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo – delivering a more rapid response.
