Porsche Singer 911: The Coolest Porsche Ever?
Singer Design in California has created a Porsche 911 that isn't a
restoration, it's a new car. No system has been left unrefined and the
base for the car is the iconic 1970's Porsche R and RS. If it drives as
good as it's constructed, it could the best example of a 911 ever made. The
2011 Porsche Panamera Turbo Start Up, Sport Exhaust, and In Depth Review/Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 2011 Porsche Panamera turbo. I take viewers on a close look
through the interior and exterior of this car while showing details, over
viewing of features, and noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself.
I also show the engine and the details of it, start it up and see how it
sounds under acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to
give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S
The new Porsche Panamera turbo S is
raising the bar for sporting four-door luxury cars. The new addition to the
Gran Turismo range offers a unique combination of performance and
efficiency, driving dynamics and comfort. The 4.8-litre, V8 twin-turbocharged engine delivers 550 hp (410 kW), an
increase of ten per cent or 50 hp (37 kW) more than the Panamera turbo. Torque also increases from 700 to 750 Nm
and 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 800 Nm courtesy of the
This uprated engine delivers record sprint times for the new top of the
range Panamera. When using the Launch Control function, 0-62 mph (0-100
km/h) is reached in 3.8 seconds, with a top speed of 191 mph (306 km/h)
possible. However, despite the increased performance, fuel consumption of
the Porsche Panamera turbo S remains at

The increased performance compared with the Panamera turbo can be attributed to two main enhancements.

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 improved and more responsive acceleration.

► 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.

2014 Audi RS7 vs 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo! - Head 2 Head Ep. 49
On this episode of Head 2 Head, Jonny Lieberman looks at a type of car that
Germany does better than anyone else: the Super Sedan. The Porsche Panamera
turbo has long been one of Motor Trend's
favorites. Massive, ferocious, surprisingly nimble, and if your checkbook's
got the overhead, totally luxurious. But don't discount Audi. Ever since
the S8 showed up, Audi has shocked the car world by making such a big car
so dang fast. The only thing that could even compete was the Panamera turbo. The RS7 comes with an even more
powerful version of the familiar 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 -- 560 horsepower to be exact. For
2014, Porsche's seemingly underrated 4.8-liter twin-turbo V-8 is up 20 hp to a more-than-modest 520
hp. Faced with tough choices after the two hit the test track and a canyon
road, Jonny enlists the help of resident Motor Trend Hot Shoe Randy Pobst
to figure out which super sedan is best.
Head 2 Head appears every other Wednesday on the Motor Trend channel.
