I have filmed the brand new turbo S variant of the popular but in some ways controversial Porsche Panamera at it's world debut in the 2011 New York Auto Show. It sports a 4.8L, turbocharged V8 and produces 550bhp; a rise by 50bhp in the "Standard" turbo. Torque is also increased by 50Nm to 750 Newton Metres, but that can be raised again to 800Nm if you flick the OverBoost button. The body is virtually identical to all other Panamera's. This video shows all angles - at the best of my ability as it was closed off - of the monster sedan.
2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S (2011 New York Auto Show)
With its new four-door Panamera turbo S,
Porsche once again raises the bar for sporty four-door luxury cars by
delivering ultra high performance and efficiency, sports-car-like driving
dynamics, and first-class comfort in a purely Porsche package.
Porsche will reveal its most powerful Panamera for the first time in North
America on April 20, 2011 at the New York International Auto Show.
The engine in the new top-of-the-line Panamera is based on the already
proven and powerful twin-turbocharged V8
engine in the Panamera turbo. The 4.8
liter, V8 engine in the turbo S achieves
a maximum output of 550 horsepower, which is 10
percent more than the 500 horsepower delivered by the
Panamera turbo. The torque is also
increased over the turbo from 516 lb-ft
to 553 lb-ft. In the "Sport" and "Sport Plus" mode of the standard Sport
Chrono Package turbo, the overBoost function can temporarily generate
additional torque with a peak rating of 590 lb.-ft.
The power increase delivered in the Panamera turbo S can be attributed to two main
enhancements: new twin turbochargers
with titanium--aluminum turbines and a modified engine control.
Titanium--aluminum reduces the turbine and compressor wheel's weight, which
results in a quicker turbo response that
improves the engine's agility.
The formidable powerplant that lies beneath the hood of the Panamera turbo S is capable of propelling it to
sports-car sprint times. With the help of Launch Control, the newest
Panamera can reach 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds. The top track speed is 190
mph. And despite this increased performance, fuel consumption is expected
to remain comparable to the Panamera turbo that delivers an EPA estimated rating of 15
mpg city/23 mpg highway (18 mpg combined). Official EPA fuel economy
estimates for the Panamera turbo S will
be available when the car goes on sale in North America.
Even for a world-class luxury car, the Panamera turbo S boasts an extraordinarily high level of
comprehensive features. In keeping with its sporty concept, it comes
equipped with the most important driving-dynamic control systems. For
example, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is an active anti-roll
system that significantly reduces lateral body movement during corning,
which enhances stability, handling and overall occupant comfort. Porsche
Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) is also standard and works to help ensure
superior traction and higher-performance cornering by applying a variable
torque split to the rear wheels in combination with an electronically
controlled rear differential lock. Also standard is Porsche's advanced
speed-sensitive Servotronic steering system, a sports Exhaust system, and the Sport Chrono Package turbo that further tunes the engine and
suspension at the touch of the "Sport Plus" button.

Porsche could be criticised for being lacking a sense of adventure when it
comes to design, but its dedication to providing a fantastic driving
experience shines through with the Panamera. This oddly proportioned
hatchback is Porsche's first 'saloon', yet the German firm has injected it
with the DNA of a sports car.
