► 2012 Porsche Panamera TURBO S (550 hp) on the road
The new Panamera turbo S is a unique combination of performance and efficiency, driving dynamics and comfort. The 4.8 litre, V8 biturbo charged engine delivers 550 hp (410 kW), ten percent or 50 hp (37 kW) more than the already very powerful engine in the Panamera turbo. By the same token, the torque also increases from 700 to 750 Nm. In the "Sport" and "Sport Plus" mode of the standard Sport Chrono Package turbo and during kick-down in normal mode, the eight cylinder engine delivers fully 800 Nm with the so-called overBoost function.
The power pack is behind the new top-of-the-range Panamera's record sprint times. Thanks to Launch Control, 100 km/h (62 mph) is reached in 3.8 seconds; the top speed is 306 km/h (191 mph). Despite the increased performance, fuel consumption remains at the moderate level of the Panamera turbo -- yet another example of "Porsche Intelligent Performance". In the NEDC the Gran Turismo covers 100 kilometres (62 miles) on 11.5 litres of fuel. Fuel consumption falls to 11.3 litres per 100 km (25 mpg imp.) when fitted with the 19 inch, all-season tyres with optimised rolling resistance developed for the Panamera by Michelin.
The increased performance compared with the Panamera turbo can be attributed to two main enhancements: Improved turbochargers with titanium-aluminium turbine wheels and modified engine control. The use of the innovative titanium-aluminium alloy reduces the weight of the turbine and compressor wheel. This results in a lower moment of inertia and thus in improved and more agile engine responsiveness.
Even for a top luxury class model, Porsche's new top-of-the-range Panamera boasts an extraordinarily comprehensive equipment level. In keeping with the sporty concept of the high-performance Panamera, it features the most important driving dynamics control systems as standard. For example, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), an active roll stabilisation system, nips in the bud the vehicle's tendency to lean when cornering, thus enhancing agility and comfort in equal measure. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) applies a variable torque split to the rear wheels combined with an electronically controlled rear differential lock, thus ensuring superior traction and therefore greater agility in every driving situation. The steering system uses the speed-dependent Servotronic. The Sport Chrono Package turbo, which tunes the suspension and power unit, making them even sportier by pressing the additional "Sport Plus" button, is also fitted as standard, as is the sports Exhaust system for an even more emotional engine sound.
The sporty character of the new Panamera turbo S is apparent not just in its performance but is also reflected on the exterior. The 20-inch turbo II wheels with increased rear axle track width, side skirts from the Porsche Exclusive range and the adaptive extending four-way rear spoiler in the exterior colour ensure particularly sporty performance and look. The fusion of exclusivity and sportiness is conveyed in the interior by the bi-colour leather finish, fitted as standard. The new combination of black/cream is offered exclusively for the new Panamera turbo S with agate grey/cream also being added as an exclusive combination from the autumn.
The Panamera turbo S costs 167,076 euro in Germany, including VAT and country-specific equipment. Deliveries start in June 2011.
► 2013 Porsche Panamera GTS [on track]
More power and upgraded brakes, a body lowered by ten millimetres and the
especially sportily tuned chassis with air suspension and PASM are the
major technical modifications that make it the Panamera model capable of
cutting it on the racing circuit -- without sacrificing practicality. The
sportiest of all Panameras also conveys this to occupants and the outside
world by its striking sound. In terms of looks, the new Panamera GTS
signals its independence by distinctive design features in the front-end,
side and rear area as well as black highlights. The interior as well is
rigorously tailored to the sporty personality with sports seats,
SportDesign steering wheel with shift paddles, exclusive GTS leather
interior and Alcantara surfaces.
The power unit in the new Panamera GTS is a modified 4.8-litre naturally
aspirated V8 engine, delivering 430 hp (316 kW) at 6,700 rpm, trumping the
engine in its Panamera S/4S sister models by 30 hp (22 kW). The maximum
torque also increased by comparison, from 500 Nm to 520 Nm. The way in
which at the push of a button the Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK)
transmits the engine output to the all-wheel drive (PTM) -- thanks to the
Sport Chrono package featured as standard without interruption to the power
flow -- is especially dynamic. This collaboration enables the Panamera GTS
to sprint to 100 km/h in under 4.5 seconds, accelerating on to its top
speed of 288 km/h. With NEDC fuel consumption of 10.9 l/100 km -- only 10.7
l/100 km with low-friction tyres -- the Panamera GTS remains as much of an
efficiency role model in its milieu as all Porsche models.
The standard values for sprint and top speed don't do full justice to the
new Panamera GTS's sporty characteristics. Its chassis in particular makes
it fit for the racing circuit: The adaptive air suspension and Porsche
Active Suspension Management (PASM) featured as standard connect the
chassis and body, constantly adapting to the driving challenges by
regulating levelling settings, adjusting height, adjusting the spring rate
and electrically adjusting the damping system. The damping is designed to
be tauter, which helps agility and further reinforces the new Gran
Turismo's sporty personality. Five millimetre thick wheel spacers between
the wheel and the wheel carriers increase the rear axle track width, giving
the Panamera an even more stable ride. The required grip is provided by
255/45 size 19-inch tyres on the front axle and 285/40 on the rear axle.
Deceleration on the sporty Panamera is provided by the superlative braking
system of the Panamera turbo. The
Panamera GTS is being launched in February 2012 with a price tag of 116.716
► 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8
Designed and built using the proven SRT formula that raises the performance
to astonishing levels, the new 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 runs from 0-60
mph in 4.8 seconds, 0-100-0 mph in the mid-16 second range, can cover the
quarter mile in the mid-13 second range, has a top speed of 160 mph, and
brakes from 60-0 mph in 116 feet.
Powering the 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 is Chrysler Group's all-new
6.4-liter HEMI® V-8 with Fuel Saver Technology that delivers 470 horsepower (351 kW) and 465
(630 N•m) lb.-ft. of torque -- an improvement of 50 horsepower and 45 lb.-ft.
torque over the 6.1-liter HEMI V-8 it replaces.
An active intake manifold and high-lift camshaft with cam phasing delivers
maximum low-end torque while optimizing high-end power across a wider and
improved rpm band. Specifically, 90-percent of peak torque is available
between 2,800 and 6,000 rpm, allowing for inspired standing starts and
improved straight-line performance.
Standard Fuel Saver Technology and a new-for-2012 active valve Exhaust system allows four-cylinder operation to
engage over a wider rpm range, to deliver both improved fuel efficiency --
a 13-percent increase on the highway -- and an extended range of 450 miles
on one tank of gas.
Standard steering wheel mounted paddle shifters join the standard Auto
Stick on the floor. Both are mated to a proven automatic transmission,
allowing a choice of spirited shifting on the road and the race track. Both
methods give the driver the ability to shift while the transmission
controller calibration prevents situations that might over rev the engine.
Fully adaptive electronic control of all shifting makes the powertrain more
responsive while minimizing harshness.
Chrysler Group's SRT vehicles are well known for their world-class braking.
Stopping power for the 2012 Grand Cherokee SRT8 comes courtesy of new SRT
high-performance Brembo brakes with four-wheel anti-lock brake system
Stopping distance performance of 116 feet from 60-0 mph is made possible by
new red-painted, Brembo 6-piston (front) and 4-piston (rear) calipers, and
vented rotors at all four corners measuring 15-inches (front) and
► 2014 Porsche Panamera S E-Hybrid
The Panamera S E-Hybrid is a systematically advanced development of the
parallel full hybrids with a more powerful electric motor, a
higher-performance battery that supplies more energy and the ability to
charge it externally from the electrical grid. The electric drive produces
95 hp (70 kW), which is more than double the power of the previous model's
electric motor at 47 hp (34 kW). It draws its energy from a newly developed
lithium-ion battery, which at 9.4 kWh has over five times the 1.7 kWh
energy capacity of the previous battery in nickel metal hydride technology.
When connected to an industrial outlet, it can be charged within around two
and a half hours via the integrated on-board charger and the standard
Porsche Universal Charger (AC), and it can be charged in less than four
hours when connected to a conventional household electrical outlet in
The Panamera S E-Hybrid far exceeds the driving performance of the previous
model. In addition, the previous model's NEDC fuel consumption of 7.1 l/100
km was reduced by 56 per cent to 3.1 l/100 km. That equates to CO2
emissions of 71 g/km. At the same time, its all-electric driving
performance was substantially improved with regard to electric
acceleration, the electric range and electric top speed. An intensive pure
electric driving experience is possible without any fuel consumption or
local emissions, which is especially advantageous in the urban environment.
The electric driving range of the Panamera S E-Hybrid was determined to be
36 kilometres in NEDC-based testing. Driving range may vary in real
operation, since air conditioning and heating are deactivated in NEDC test
conditions, for example. A realistic all-electric driving range in everyday
operation would lie somewhere between 18 and 36 km -- and under
particularly favourable conditions it could even exceed this range. The
Panamera with the new hybrid drive can reach speeds of up to 135 km/h in
The acceleration time from a standstill to 100 km/h was shortened by half a
second to 5.5 seconds. The electric Boost function helps here, in which the
performance of the electric motor Boosts that of the combustion engine. Boosting can also be activated by kick-down
-- such as in overtaking situations. The car's top speed is 270 km/h. The
parallel full hybrid concept developed by Porsche also offers "coasting" at
higher speeds, which refers to free coasting with the internal combustion
engine shut off and energy recovery by generating electricity.
The new generation of Panamera models will be launched on the market in
July 2013. Prices start at 81,849 euros for the Panamera Diesel and 83,277
Euro for the Panamera. The Panamera 4 is priced at 88,513 euros, the
Panamera S at 101,841 euros and the Panamera 4S at 107,196 euros. The
Panamera S E-Hybrid costs 110,409 euros, which is followed by the Panamera
GTS at 121,595 euros and the Panamera 4S Executive at 132,662 euros. The
top models are the Panamera turbo for
145,990 euros and the Panamera turbo
Executive for 163,364 euros. The cited prices are valid for Germany,
including VAT and market-specific features.

Porsche Panamera S Hybrid review - Auto Express
It's a car that's broken new ground in more ways than one. Not only is the
Porsche Panamera the firm's first four-door grand tourer, but now, with the
introduction of the Panamera S Hybrid, it's also the most fuel-efficient
model the firm has ever produced.
Capable of 41.5mpg and emitting only 159g/km of CO2, this Panamera is --
unbelievably -- more economical and cleaner than a VW Passat 1.8 TSI
petrol. Yet it still delivers the kind of performance you'd expect from a
Porsche. It can sprint from 0-62mph in only six seconds, while top speed is
