Porsche Expands Panamera Lineup with Two New Variants

Porsche Expands Panamera Lineup with Two New Variants

By Philly Murtha, November 14, 2016

This week at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show, Porsche will show off two new variants in its second-generation 2017 Panamera sport sedan range. A new entry-level or base model Panamera will debut along with a long-wheelbase Panamera 4 Executive version. Both will join the lineup that already includes the powerful Panamera 4S and 4 E-Hybrid that will launch in January 2017.

The basic large premium sports sedan comes in rear-wheel drive (RWD) or all-wheel drive (AWD) configurations and will be equipped with a new turbocharged, 2.9-liter V-6 engine that generates an additional 20 horsepower to produce 330 horsepower when mated with an 8-speed dual-clutch transmission. The RWD variant accelerates from 0-60 mph in 5.4 seconds and the top speed is 164 mph, according to Porsche. Pricing with destination charge will be in the $80,000 range.

The long-wheelbase Executive versions will be offered as Panamera 4 Executive (330 horsepower); Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive (462 horsepower); Panamera 4S Executive (440 horsepower); and Panamera Turbo Executive (550 horsepower).

Standard features on the Panamera Executive range include a panorama roof, heated electronically-adjustable front and rear seats, and adaptive air suspension with an electronically controlled damper system. A rear roll-up sunblind also is standard. The Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive add more standard features including rear-axle steering and what Porsche calls soft-close doors. Additionally, the Panamera Turbo Executive offers standard 4-zone climate control, LED headlights featuring Porsche’s Dynamic Light System, and ambient interior lighting.

All 2017 Panamera Executive models will be available with a new optional large rear center console, and the latest generation of Porsche’s rear-entertainment system. Two 10.1-in. display screens in the backrests of the front seats can be detached for more functionality and can convert the back area into a digital workplace or be removed and used as tablets. The Executive variants also can be personalized with an optional Sport Design package.
