Saloon or sports car? Power or efficiency? Quite simply, there’s no decision to make. That’s because the Panamera and the Panamera 4 blend all these apparent contradictions into one sporty overall concept.
Standard features of the Panamera and the Panamera 4 include Bi-Xenon main headlights, the 18-inch Panamera wheels, the two single-tube tailpipes of the exhaust system and the automatic rear hatch.
Both models are equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard. In the Panamera, it transfers engine power to the rear axle; in the Panamera 4 to all four wheels via the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
Other standard features of the Panamera and Panamera 4 are cruise control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM), automatic climate control and the CDR audio system. Options include Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and the BOSE® Surround Sound System or the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.

The efficient 3.6-litre naturally aspirated V6 engine with four overhead camshafts benefits from a lightweight construction. A balance shaft reduces vibrations and ensures excellent smooth running. Direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integrated dry-sump lubrication are fitted as standard. A coasting function and auto start/ stop function are also provided.
The engine generates a power output of 228 kW (310 hp) at 6,200 rpm and a maximum torque of 400 Nm at 3,750 rpm. The result is a top speed of 259 km/h and acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h in 6.3 seconds in the Panamera, and a 257 km/h top speed and 6.1 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h in the Panamera 4.
