Its refined 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine generates 520 hp at 6000 rpm and torque of 516 lb.-ft. between 2250 and 4500 rpm. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and achieves a top track speed of 189 mph. A special feature is the overboost function of the Sport Chrono Package. Under acceleration at full throttle, boost pressure is temporarily increased by up to 10 % – for an even higher torque of 568 lb.-ft. Drive force is transmitted by Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
The adaptive air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offers a choice of uncompromising sporty performance or even more comfort – at the push of a button.
What else sets the new Panamera Turbo Executive apart? The extending four-way rear spoiler, certainly, but also the dual twin-tube tailpipes in a Turbo-specific design, 19-inch Panamera Design II wheels and the red brake calipers of the Turbo brake system.
That’s the ‘Turbo’ principle covered. Let’s move on to the ‘Executive’ principle. To the comprehensive standard specification with electric slide/tilt glass sunroof and thermally and noise insulated glass. To the soft close doors and ParkAssist (front and rear). It goes without saying that four-zone automatic climate control is also integrated as standard. All four individual seats are designed as power seats (14-way in the front, 8-way in the rear) and come equipped with seat heating and ventilation. The interior aspires to high standards, and these are fulfilled not least by the memory package for the 14-way power seats in the front and, in the rear, by the large center console.
