The new-generation Porsche Panamera has further sharpened what is already the sportiest of all sedans. Porsche DNA permeates throughout the Panamera, and this is evident in its relentless acceleration and incredible roadholding capability. A new generation of turbocharged V6 and optional V8 engines are class leaders in power and efficiency. The Panamera's PDK gearbox is the most advanced dual-clutch transmission on the market, able to execute rapid-fire shifts in its sport settings and behave like a comfortable automatic when needed.
There are no concessions made to luxury, and the interior is a plush and inviting space that presents the latest automotive technologies in an intuitive and easy to approach manner. The infotainment and air-conditioning systems have been completely redesigned and feature simplified touch-screen interfaces. The Panamera's sumptuous interior features fine leathers, and optional aluminum and technical fiber trims. The exterior design is a graceful evolution of the original, with improved aerodynamic efficiency and even stronger coupe-like styling. Most evident is the new design of the rear arches, creating a very powerful styling statement and a clear link to the Porsche 911.
