Founding a company.
Not simply continuing down the chosen path,
but forever reinventing oneself along the way.
Doing things differently from others. All this
takes courage. Courage that breaks with
conventions, draws a clear line, and creates
the future. In Los Angeles, London, Berlin,
Singapore – and in Zuffenhausen. Without
courage, nothing would be different from
yesterday. Porsche would not be Porsche.
And you would not be you.
Courage changes everything.

Courage takes many forms.
We’ve opted for that of a sports car.
A few years ago, everything to do with
the saloon suddenly changed. Large,
cumbersome and thickly padded instantly
seemed outmoded qualities. On the road,
something happened – something rather
fast and dynamic: a sports car came
along. A sports car with four seats, an
unmistakable silhouette and performance
figures normally associated only with a
The Panamera. It changed everything.
For drivers of saloons first and foremost. Sporting spirit – in business and in
personal life – found its automotive match.
The courage to perform found a matching
Now the change goes on. Forwards. On
the road, something is happening again.
For sporty drivers – and their sporty
companions – our engineers and designers
have created the next Panamera. With
the courage of a new generation.
The new Panamera.
Courage changes everything.

The new generation of the Panamera sees
three models lining up on the grid:
the Panamera 4S with a 2.9-litre twin-turbo
V6 engine offering 324 kW (440 hp),
the Panamera 4S Diesel with a 4.0-litre
twin-turbo V8 engine capable of 310 kW
(422 hp) and the Panamera Turbo with a
4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine, twin-scroll
turbochargers, adaptive cylinder control and
a power output of 404 kW (550 hp).
And it ’s more dynamic than ever: thanks to
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport
(PDCC Sport), Porsche 4D Chassis Control,
three-chamber air suspension and – for the
first time in the Panamera – rear-axle
Characteristic features of all Panamera
models: four-point LED daytime running
lights – including Porsche Dynamic Light
System (PDLS) on the Panamera Turbo – the
light strip on the rear end and the slimline
three-dimensional LED taillights with four- point brake lights. The extending rear
spoiler integrated into the body reduces lift
at the rear axle at high speeds.
The tremendous tractive power of the two
all-wheel drive S models is transmitted to
the road by 19-inch Panamera S wheels.
Wheels of up to 21 inches in size are
available as an option. Behind them: brake
callipers in Titanium Grey. Round twin
tailpipes are fitted left and right.
On the new Panamera Turbo with its
dominant front end and characteristic
front light units, the side air outlets in the
front wings are finished in the exterior
colour of the vehicle. The twin tailpipes
are specific to the Turbo, the brake callipers
behind the 20-inch Panamera Turbo wheels
are finished in red. The rear spoiler of the
Panamera Turbo splits at full deployment for
a significant gain in width – commensurate
with the higher power output of this model.

When you’re happy to lean back in comfort,
you change nothing? We disagree. For only
those who know how to breathe calmly will
ultimately stay the course. The ingenious
sports car ergonomics of the Panamera are
centred on the driver and on performance –
without disregard for the wellbeing of
The interior has been completely restyled –
and nevertheless remains typically Porsche.
Examples include the ascending centre
console, which enables swift hand
movements from the multifunction steering
wheel to the gear selector. The dashboard
is flat and conspicuously wide. The
analogue rev counter is positioned in the
middle of the instrument cluster. New
Porsche Advanced Cockpit control and
display concept with newly styled centre console in glass look. High-resolution
12-inch touchscreen display.
The most striking feature of the rear seats?
There are two separate ones. With plenty of
leg- and headroom and offering excellent
lateral support through fast corners –
without sacrificing comfort.
And what else? You decide: seat variants,
leather or two-tone interior schemes? Fine
woods, aluminium or carbon? More sporty?
More luxurious? Both? Thanks to our
extensive range of personalisation options,
the possibilities for you and your wishes are
Above all, though, there is plenty of space
and comfort. Not so typical of a sports car.
Absolutely typical of the new Panamera.

Analogue meets digital: the new
instrument cluster of the Panamera models
is reminiscent of Porsche motorsport
history – and, at the same time, it is as
modern as only it can be.
In the middle and in direct view of the driver
is the analogue rev counter, its needle
integral to its truly classic design. To the
left and right, two high-resolution displays
provide you with a variety of information as
and when you need it, such as the
navigation map or Night Vision Assist.
Also new is the control concept: Porsche
Advanced Cockpit. The centre console with
Direct Touch Control has a surface in glass
look featuring touch-sensitive buttons arranged in logical groups. In between:
the compact gear selector. A high-resolution
12-inch touchscreen display is integrated
into the dashboard. From the personalised
start screen you gain quick and easy
access to the functions you find most
important. In conjunction with optional
four-zone automatic climate control, the
passengers in the rear also have a
touchscreen display of their own.
Porsche Connect enhances existing vehicle
functions with intelligent services and apps,
all of which are intended to make the
connection between car and driver even
more intimate, to intensify that sports car
fascination, and to make the challenges of
everyday life quick and easy to overcome.
