Design. The silhouette and proportions of the Panamera models are more Porsche than ever. Clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette emphasise the precision of the design.
Transmission. 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). Getting more power from an engine is worthwhile only when you know where it needs to go. And how quickly and effectively. The Panamera models are therefore equipped with an 8-speed variant of Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the respective engine into the acceleration expected of a sports car.
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive. All Panamera models – except the Panamera with 3.0-litre turbocharged V6 engine and rear-wheel drive – are equipped with Porsche Traction Management (PTM). This active all-wheel drive with electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch ensures the optimum distribution of drive force whatever the driving situation – for excellent acceleration power on long straights, through tight corners and on road surfaces with varying grip.
Chassis. Whether you’re behind the wheel or occupying a passenger seat in the front or rear: in a Porsche, every drive should feel like sport, not transport. With comfort, not cosy cuddles.
Brakes. For over 60 years, we’ve been working on being faster. Even when it comes to slowing down. That’s why the Panamera models are equipped with a brake system having six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four piston equivalents at the rear.
Wheels. We rise to the challenge we’re given. The same applies to the wheel dimensions of the Panamera. The tyres are wider, the contact patch larger – for enhanced performance under acceleration and braking. As of now, optional sizes of up to 21 inches are available from a range of wheel designs, assuring you a grand appearance. All Panamera models are equipped as standard with 19-inch wheels, the Panamera Turbo with 20-inch wheels. The material? Alloy, of course. The design? Classic and sporty. A choice of other 19-, 20- and 21-inch wheels is available on request.
