The new Panamera S proves that Porsche performance can indeed be engineered into a four-door design. In terms of raw numbers, Panamera S has a 4.8-liter, naturally aspirated V8 engine which generates 400 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque.

 

But it’s the raw emotion that’s most impressive. Drive a Panamera S, and its steel-spring suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management translates the V8’s power into over-the-road poise unlike anything you’ve ever experienced with ordinary performance sedans.

 

From the exterior, the new Panamera S is distinguishable by the double slats on the side air intakes in the front apron. These are in black, just like the rear apron diffuser. The round twin tailpipes are also characteristic and, through the 18-inch Panamera S wheels, the silver-colored brake calipers are visible.

 

In terms of performance, the Panamera S has a 4.8-liter, naturally aspirated V8 engine, which generates 400 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of torque, which is transmitted to the rear axle via the standard 7-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung, allowing for smooth gear changes with no interruption in the flow of power. A steel-spring suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management is fitted as standard.

 

The interior with its four seats has plenty of space and high-quality features. Heated front seats and automatic climate control are standard. The seat centers, inner side bolsters, gear selector, door handles, upper door armrests and center console are finished in embossed leather. The tachometer has a silver-colored dial face, and the interior trims are finished in high-gloss black.

 

Optional leather and natural leather interiors, in solid-color or two-tone combinations, are just one way to personalize your vehicle. Another is with our optional interior packages in Carbon Fiber, aluminum, or woods such as Walnut or Tineo. The new Panamera S is equipped with Porsche Communication Management (PCM) and includes the navigation system as standard. The Bose® Surround Sound system, the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System, and XM® Satellite Radio are also available as options. And this is only the beginning when it comes to personalizing your Panamera S.
