The Panamera is all about power and luxury, and for 2011 Porsche has added a turbocharger kit that will add even more power to its optional turbocharged V-8 engine. Two trims with powerful V-6 engines have also been introduced.

Five trim levels are available on the 2011 Porsche Panamera. The base Panamera and Panamera S trims employ rear-wheel drive, and the Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, and Panamera Turbo trims feature all-wheel drive. Standard equipment on the base Panamera includes 18-inch wheels, leather upholstery with bucket seats front and back, sunroof, full power accessories, adaptive suspension dampers, cooled glove compartment, dual-zone automatic climate control, hard-drive-based navigation system, 11-speaker sound system, and much more.

The Panamera Turbo steps up to 19-inch wheels, upgraded suspension, bi-xenon headlights, premium sound system, more power options to the accessories, and many other enhancements. Virtually all the Turbo's additions are available as options on the other trims.
