Porsche extends its Panamera family with a long version and at the same time introduces a new base motor. The 3,0-liter V6 develops 243 kW / 330 hp and is 20 hp more than the 3,6-liter engine in the previous model, while the standard consumption drops by around one to 7,6 liters per 100 kilometers. As the first engine in the new Panamera, the new V6 can also be combined exclusively with rear-wheel drive, the price for this variant (“Panamera”) is 89.000 euros. The all-wheel-drive version ("Panamera 4") is available from € 93.000. So far, the price list for the luxury sedan started at EUR 107.600 for the Panamera 4 E Hybrid with 340 kW / 462 hp.
The base engine is not only available for the 5,05 meter long standard model, but also for the new long version "Executive". The approximately 5,20 meter long chauffeur-driven limousine is always delivered with all-wheel drive and costs at least 102.700 euros - and thus just under 10.000 euros more than the version with a short wheelbase. Alternatively, there is a hybrid variant for 115.000 euros and the two conventional petrol versions with 324 kW / 440 hp ("Panamera 4S Executive") and 404 kW / 550 hp ("Panamera Turbo Executive") for 126.800 euros and 166.500 euros, respectively. The standard equipment includes a panoramic glass roof, adaptive air suspension and comfort seats with seat heating in the rear. (Holger Holzer / SP-X)
