Second generation model now available in India.
Porsche has launched the second gen 2017 Porsche Panamera in India. Only the Turbo variant is on sale at prices starting from INR 1.93 crore (ex-showroom Mumbai).
The second generation Porsche Panamera is available in 17 different configurations internationally, but India gets just two of them: Panamera Turbo and Panamera Turbo Executive. The range will expand later with the addition of the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid, a long-wheelbase version, as well as the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo.
Adaptive air suspension, LED headlights, LED tail lights, 12.3-inch Porsche Communication Management infotainment system, panoramic sunroof, multi-way electrically adjustable comfort seats with massage function, roll-up sun blinds behind the headrests in the rear, four-zone climate control, ambient lighting, large rear centre console, Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment with detachable 10.1-inch displays and Burmester 3D sound system are the equipment highlights of the 2017 Porsche Panamera.
The 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo/Turbo Executive packs a new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine that develops 550 hp between 5,750 rpm and 6,000 rpm and 770 Nm of torque between 1,960 rpm and 4,500 rpm. The power and torque are up by 30 hp and 70 Nm respectively. A 0-100 km/h sprint takes 3.8 seconds, or even lesser, 3.6 seconds if the option for the Sport Chrono Package is checked. The 0-100 km/h sprint takes 0.1 seconds more in the Panamera Turbo Executive.
Both models have the same top speed of 306 km/h, though. Power is sent to the wheels via a new eight-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission, and distributed between them via the Porsche Traction Management all-wheel drive system.
