The new Porsche Panamera is bigger and better than everThe Panamera may now win over more car fans with improved looks, tech and performance.
Porsche has revealed an all-new Panamera, and it's quite the looker. It's longer, wider, and taller than the old car, but manages to hide the extra size in its sleek design. For the US there are two engines available at launch. The 440 horse, 445 pound foot twin turbo 2.9 liter V6 powered 4S And the 550 horsepower 567 pound foot twin turbo 4 liter V8 turbo. The 4S hits 60 from rest in four seconds dead if you spec at the Sport Chrono Pack, 4. If you don't. The turbo will get you there in 3.4 seconds with the chrono, and 3.6 without. The top speeds are 180 and 190, respectively. Around the gear selector is now a touchpad affair. Above that and you get an apple car player enabled 12 inch touch screen for your entertainment needs. Your instrument [UNKNOWN] mixes the old with the new; the rev counter is analog, but it's flanked by two 7-inch screens that offer you any information you may need. On top of all of that, Porsche's upped the safety tech in there. [UNKNOWN] drive uses GPS data to tell the car best accelerate and decelerate and change gears And a new thermal imaging system lets you and the car see better in the dark. The Panamera is hitting US showrooms in early 2017 with the 4S starting at 99,990 dollars and the Turbo clocking in at 146900.
