Porsche Pakistan has officially launched the new Porsche Panamera in the country, and it is gorgeous! The Porsche Panamera is a luxury sedan boasting the traditional Porsche-like curves.
The model was officially launched back in 2016, however, just recently it has entered Pakistan’s automotive market.
Globally, Porsche Panamera is available in 12 variants though Pakistan will get only 9, each with its own specialities. One of the major reasons behind this is because of the cost, luxury sedans that too from an internationally renowned manufacturer tend to come with high price tags.
Here’s what Porsche Panamera has to offer Pakistanis!
Does a sporty saloon really have to look like a saloon? Or can it look rather more athletic? With a taut roof line, for example, that displays a sleek and harmonious contour more likely to be associated with a two-seater?
The silhouette and proportions of the new Panamera models are more Porsche than ever. Clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette emphasise the precision of the new design.
The wheelbase is 3 cm longer than that of the predecessor – the shorter overhang at the front and the longer overhang at the rear lend visual dynamism. The more prominent sculpting of the side creates the customary Porsche waistline and sense of lightness.
A stunning identifying feature at the front: LED main headlights with four-spot daytime running lights, including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) on the Panamera Turbo.
Characteristic features of all Panamera models: the light strip on the rear end and the slimline three-dimensional LED taillights with four-spot brake lights. The extending rear spoiler integrated into the body reduces lift at the rear axle at high speeds.
The interior has been completely restyled – and nevertheless remains typically Porsche. The centre console ascends towards the front. The dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide. The analogue rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster.
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 for direct access to the most important functions. In between the compact gear selector.
A high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard. In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control, the passengers in the rear also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the rev counter, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
Above all, though, there is plenty of space and comfort. Not so typical of a sports car. Absolutely typical of the new Panamera.
The all-new twin-turbo V6 engine in the Panamera 4S and twin-turbo V8 engine in the Panamera Turbo are lighter and more compact than their predecessors and come equipped with VarioCam Plus.Their two turbochargers are now positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo – delivering a more rapid response.
Their two turbochargers are now positioned in between the cylinder banks. This reduces the distance that the exhaust stream has to travel to reach the respective turbo – delivering a more rapid response.
The twin-turbo V8 engine of the Panamera Turbo is equipped with twin-scroll turbines. The exhaust streams arrive at the turbine wheel through physically separate channels – for optimised gas cycles. The result: high torque even in the low rpm range.
When you’re in the lead, you have to keep going. And here’s the proof ‒ the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The high-performance hybrid realises its full potential with a powerful 4.0-litre V8 Biturbo engine and an electric machine. Together they speak a clear language, namely performance.
The Porsche Panamera is equipped with the following;
- Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB)
- Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS)
- Night View
- Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus)
The new Panamera models are equipped with a brake system having six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake callipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear.
The brake discs are internally vented and slotted. This improves braking behaviour even under extreme conditions and heat is dissipated more effectively. The one-piece brake callipers have an enclosed construction.
This makes them lighter yet highly resistant to deformation. Pedal travel is tight, the pressure point precise, the braking distance impressively short.
