The Porsche Panamera

The new Panamera

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 Porsche.

The Panamera. It changed everything. For drivers of saloons first and foremost. Sporting spirit – in business and in personal life – found its automotive counterpart. The courage to perform found a matching performer.

Our engineers have demonstrated their courage with the Panamera concept. By continually re-evaluating and reinventing. By reconciling apparent contradictions: performance and comfort, dynamics and efficiency, career and family. And by forever remaining true to our roots, with shared traits like the ignition lock on the left and the rev counter in the middle – in short: typical Porsche DNA. The result? Singularity. Of the Porsche kind.

New 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK)

Getting more power from an engine is worthwhile only when you know where it needs to go. And how quickly and effectively. The latest Panamera models are therefore equipped with a newly developed 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the respective engine into the acceleration expected of a sports car.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM)

PASM is an electronic damping control system. It actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. The effect is to reduce vehicle body movement and thereby improve comfort in all four seats.
