► 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
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.
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
Porsche Panamera Turbo onboard - great accelerations
WATCH 'TIL THE END!!! - I was on my vacation when one day my uncle arrived
with his new car, a stunning and still very rare Porsche Panamera turbo in Bianco Carrara, one of the first here in
Italy!! This car is not in market yet, so as you can note it hasn't a
"real" plate.. Anyway it's just a fantastic car!! I didn't like it before,
because of it's back, but when I saw it near me with my eyes I was just
very excited!! I did some vids of the exterior and then my uncle took me
and one of my friends for a ride - my uncle used just Sport Plus mode for
this ride, so the car was just a besat!!! Unfortunately a window was open
so sometimes you can't hear well the engine, but there are moments when you
can hear nice accelerations! Anyway you can note how fast we were looking
out of the windows or at the counter. Enjoy!! Watch my channel for more
Be sure to watch it in High Quality!
2011 Porsche Panamera 4 Start-Up and Full Vehicle Tour
A very big thank you to Julius and the rest of the staff at Porsche Centre
Glenmarie for giving me this opportunity to make videos on Porsches!
Although at the time of filming, time was restricted and I only got videos
on 2 cars, but still, I enjoyed my time there and will hope to get back
In this video, I have the 2011 Porsche Panamera 4. The engine in this car
is the base 3.6 Direct Fuel Injection V6 that puts out 300bhp @ 6200rpm and
400Nm of torque @ 3750-4250rpm. The car is mated to a 7-speed PDK dual
clutch transmission and goes from 0-100km/h in 6.1seconds. Fuel consumption
is estimated at 9.6l/100km and the carbon dioxide emissions is at 225g/km.
The 4 in the name stands for 4-wheel drive, and it shares the same system
as the one in the Panamera 4S and Panamera turbo.
The colour for this particular car in the video is called Luxor Beige and
the interior is in Luxor Beige as well. There are 2 variants of the
Panamera 4 available in Malaysia; Standard and Premium. The 'Standard'
retails for RM760,000 and makes do without navigation, BOSE sound system,
etc.. The 'Premium' retails at RM823,000 and includes most of the amenities
that are absent from the Standard.
