Detailed item info

Model Overview
Panamera fills the gap in Porsche’s line between sports cars and the
Cayenne SUV, offering high speed touring for four in a comfortable and
spacious package. It’s especially wide at 76 inches, and its 195 inch
length and 55.8 inch height make for plenty of interior space, and its
rear hatch gives good access to its 15.7-cubic feet of storage space.
Flop the seatbacks down, and there’s room for 44.6 cubic feet of
luggage.The center of the Panamera’s body structure is steel, helping
with rigidity, while the front frame sections, front double-wishbone
suspension components, rear subframe and multilink suspension, hood,
doors and hatch are aluminum, which reduces excess weight. In all, the S
weighs in at just 3,968 pounds–well under the Maserati Quattroporte or
Mercedes-Benz S63 AMG–and weight at extreme ends of the chassis has
been eliminated, giving excellent handling characteristics.Five models
are available: The base model comes in both rear-wheel and all-wheel
form, S and the all-wheel drive 4S and Turbo. The base models are
powered by a 3.6L V6. The S and 4S are powered by Porsche’s 32-valve
4.8L V8, which makes 400 horses and 369 pound-feet of torque. The S
models has a top speed of 175 mph and provides a 0-60 time of just 5.2
seconds. The 4S shares the same 175 mph top speed, but the addition of
all wheel drive drops the 0-60 time to 4.8 seconds. The Turbo makes 500
horses, which Porsche claims allows it to sprint to 60 in just 4 seconds
flat on its way to a 188 mph top speed.All Panameras receive an updated
version of Porsche’s PDK 7-speed automatic, which has been given two
main shafts rather than the three offered in the 911, allowing the unit
to fit in a more narrow transmission tunnel and freeing up interior
space. The 7-speed is optional on all rear-wheel drive Panameras and
standard on all the all-wheel drive models. All models receive a
stop-start system, which stops the engine when the car comes to a
complete stop to save fuel. Once the brake is released, the engine is
automatically restarted.An available air suspension system allows
control of the car’s spring rate with the flip of a switch,
automatically lowering the car’s ride height. Porsche’s Dynamic Chassis
Control (PDCC) is also available, which de-couples the chassis’
stabilizer bars when running in a straight line to increase ride
quality, then automatically reengaging them in the corners for increased
control. Several levels are selectable with a switch mounted on the
dash. Porsche also offers a ceramic brake upgrade (PCCB), which reduces
unsprung weight while also significantly improving braking
performance.The Panamera’s interior features a liberal use of woodgrain,
leather and brushed aluminum. The louvers on the air vents, the
sunvisors, the interior mirror and front and rear consoles all available
in leather trim. 18-way adjustable leather front seats and 8-way
adjustable rears are standard, as well as a host of power options. The
Panamera is available for customization through Porsche’s Exclusive
& Tequipment service, offering an array of high-end options
including a rear seat cooling box in the center console, which keeps
drinks chilled and includes Porsche-crested glasses. Rear seat
entertainment is also available, which includes dual 7-inch flatscreen
monitors mounted in the front seats’ headrests, as well as individual
DVD players and cordless headphones. Each side comes with a USB
interface as well as several AV inputs.
