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.

2012 Porsche Panamera Turbo S - 1080p HD
This is the new 2012 Porsche Panamera turbo S! The car was parked on a beautiful
location in Domburg, in front of "Het Badpaviljoen". This car has a 4.8L V8
engine that produces 550bhp. 0-60 mph goes in 3.8 seconds! Image: that's faster then a Porsche 911 GT3 RS!

Thanks for watching and all the feedback on my videos are welcome!
► 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.
