The Porsche Panamera brings sports car performance and non-traditional styling to the full-size premium luxury sedan class. The Panamera is offered in seven versions, a base rear-wheel drive, and six all-wheel drive versions: 4, 4 Executive, 4S, 4S Executive, Turbo and Turbo Executive. The RWD, 4 and 4 Executive are powered by a 330-hp twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6, the 4S's are powered by a 440-hp twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 and the Turbo's a twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 with 550-hp. The Porsche PDK double-clutch 8-speed is the only transmission choice, and all are equipped with an auto start-stop feature for increased urban fuel economy. The body appears to be a four-door sedan but with a coupe-like profile and a power liftgate, rather than a typical trunk, for access to the spacious luggage area. The Executive models are long-wheelbase versions with all the extra length going to the rear seat passengers. Standard safety features include ten airbags, full LED headlights (adaptive standard on Turbo) with LED daytime running lights, rain sensing wipers, full LED rear lighting, rearview camera, four belt pretensioners and electronic traction and stability control. Apple CarPlay is standard along with a 12-inch centre display touchscreen. A small sample of optional tech features includes a 6-disc CD changer, Bose surround sound, Burmester surround sound, surround view, soft-close doors, speed sensitive steering, ceramic composite brakes, four-zone climate control, ventilated and massaging seats, night vision, adaptive cruise control, lane keep assist and lane change assist. The Panamera is all-new for 2017.
