About the Porsche Panamera

For over a decade, the Porsche Panamera has remained in a class by itself as an executive luxury sports car. In the Panamera, performance never takes a backseat – although after seeing the back seat, you may want to. The Porsche Panamera builds upon Porsche’s winning formula by introducing track-inspired features like next-generation tire technology that improves both performance and efficiency, as well as a plug-in hybrid model and an even faster Turbo S variant. With the Porsche Panamera, you never have to choose between comfort, safety, and performance – you have it all at your fingertips.

Speaking of having it all at your fingertips, the Panamera has the tech and infotainment you demand for navigating the modern world with the poise and precision you’ve come to expect from Porsche. A 12.3-inch center touchscreen offers features such as a Wifi hotspot, online navigation, and real-time traffic information. In addition, not one, but two premium audio systems are offered, from BOSE ® and Burmester.

What’s New for 2022

Porsche enthusiasts will discover a variety of key changes to the successful Panamera for the new model year. 2022 brings with it the debut of a new Platinum Edition appearance package that adds satin-finish platinum 21-inch wheels, smoked headlamp lenses, and black exterior accents. The interior of Platinum Edition variants also feature Platinum Edition badging on their aluminum door sill plates. The second major update applies to the entire Panamera range. All models now come standard with the latest iteration of PCM 6.0 infotainment software that now includes Android Auto and wireless Apple CarPlay compatibility.

What the Critics Say

“Yes, the Porsche Panamera is a great car. Its powertrain lineup includes V6, V8, and plug-in-hybrid options, and there are no bad apples in the bunch. Few cars this size can match the driving enjoyment the Panamera provides. It’s quick off the line and agile around turns, delivering a relaxing ride all the while.” – U.S. News & World Report

“Despite its length, the Panamera is wonderfully maneuverable, the steering is remarkably precise, and the car corners like a champ, especially when the rear-wheel-steering and torque-vectoring technology come into play.” – Kelley Blue Book

Porsche Panamera Features

Porsche Panamera Exterior

Exhilarating Performance

It’s difficult to find a luxury sedan that can compete with the thrilling performance capabilities of the dynamic Porsche Panamera. The extensive engine lineup of the Panamera includes four potent turbocharged variants along with two advanced E-Hybrid powertrains – each engineered with quintessential race-inspired Porsche characteristics. Topping the lineup is an adrenaline-pumping 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that cranks out a remarkable 620 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque. Achieving a balance between agile handling with luxurious refinement, the precision-tuned chassis of the Panamera offers the best of both worlds. Optional chassis performance features include the Adaptive Air Suspension with three-chamber technology, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport), and Rear-Axle Steering. Available Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) feature enlarged perforated ceramic brake discs to slow the tremendous power of the Porsche Panamera. Select the iconic Sport Chrono Package and you’ll receive sharper tuning of the chassis, engine, and transmission.
