PORSCHE is placing its fastest, most powerful and most luxurious Panamera at the peak of its Gran Turismo series.
The new Porsche Panamera Turbo S has a sporty, luxurious character evident in its driving performance, the German manufacturer says.
The Panamera Turbo S model uses two new turbochargers with larger compressors.
The new compressors increase the air flow and the charger injects more oxygen into the combustion chambers at high loads and speeds.
A 50-bhp increase in power compared to the Panamera Turbo engine has been achieved through specific revision work on a number of components.
Together, both of these measures enable higher component loads, which are absorbed by pistons made from a new aluminium alloy and coated piston rings.
Available from €207,334, the new top Panamera model from Porsche features an extensive range of equipment.
The Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), an active roll stabilisation system, starts reducing the vehicle’s lateral inclination as it approaches bends, thereby increasing agility and comfort in equal measure.
The Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) system works with a variable standard torque split at the rear wheels in combination with an electronically controlled rear-axle differential lock to provide improved traction in any driving situation.
Thanks to the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB), the Panamera Turbo S benefits from a high-performance brake system that is particularly resistant to brake fading and wear.
The interior of the Panamera Turbo S offers a sporty side.
Two-tone leather furnishings come as standard.
The 14-way power seats at the front are available as standard and can be combined with the memory package, which comprises seat surface extension as well as lumbar support and electrical steering column adjustment.
Both the front and rear seats feature seat heating as standard.
At the rear, two single seats with a folding central arm rest offer generous leg and head room.
