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 (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.
Gemballa MISTRALE (porsche panamera) - Top Marques 2011
⇩⇩⇩⇩⇩⇩ All the info on this video can be found here ⇩⇩⇩⇩⇩⇩
This is Gemballa's rendition of the Panamera, the MISTRALE. It has a matte grey robe with carbon fiber bodyparts! Lots of air intakes, the new Gemballa rims (which can also be found on the Tornado) and those new backlights (which I personnally don't like much)! Oh well... The final rendition of the car is pretty cool I think. Withouth forgetting Gemballa's true touch = the Exhaust tips. What do you think of the car and of the interior? :) Enjoy!
