Porsche has always gone the extra mile - pushing the boundaries of function and form in the creation of a vehicle that doesn’t follow trends but creates them. This commitment has been evident in the early days of Porsche and is now more apparent than ever as we introduce the all-new 2021 Porsche Panamera.With sleek sporty lines, excellent everyday practicality, and a design that sets new standards for Porsche and the entire industry, the 2021 Panamera is intended to break the mold. It is the latest offering from a company committed to doing things differently by continually reinventing their approach.
The rearview shows the sporty attitude of the 2021 Panamera while the front and side reveal the elegance and horizontal orientation of the vehicle concept. The large tailgate and low loading edge give you easy access to the 520 litres of trunk space while the sculpted, svelte lines and the defined edges of the sides are characteristically Porsche.'
A high proportion of strategically selected aluminum, magnesium, plastics, and super-high-strength sheet steel forms the intelligent lightweight construction integral to the Porsche identity. The predominantly water-based paints and lightweight materials used in the construction of the Panamera also make the vehicle much more friendly to our environment.
Available in rear-wheel drive as well as all-wheel drive, the new Panamera boasts optimum distribution through tight corners, long straights, and on a variety of road surfaces. When you spend 60 years focused on being the fastest, you learn a thing or two about how to slow down. The 2021 Panamera is equipped with six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear, which keeps braking distance impressively short even under extreme conditions.
Under the hood
With an efficient 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine, the Panamera produces 330 hp and reaches 60 mph in 5.4 seconds. The new Panamera is also equipped with 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the engine into the acceleration typical of a sports car while keeping the control firmly in your hands. The first six gears have sports ratio while the 7th and 8th have a longer ratio to keep engine revs low for efficient and comfortable driving over long distances. The precise gearshifts take place in milliseconds with no discernible interruption in the flow of power, just what you would expect from a sports car.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid
It takes courage to tread new paths, and we are discovering them as we add the new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid to the range. This e-performance trim of the Panamera will change your everyday drive just as it will change your perception of hybrid technology. The result of the synchronous relationship between the combustion engine and electric motor is incomparable acceleration and a top track speed of 280 km/h. In other words, pure sports car performance.
The beauty of the drive has always been at the core of all of Porsche designs and with the Porsche Advanced Cockpit inside the Panamera, that drive is more comfortable, safer and even more adrenaline-filled than ever. The centre console features a high-resolution, glass-like 12-inch touchscreen display enabling direct access to the majority of in-car functions. Plus, Porsche InnoDrive delivers an array of driver-assist technologies that adapt to different driving environments.
Two separate seats offer generous head and legroom to allow anyone in the second row plenty of room to get in and enjoy the Panamera driving experience. A wealth of entertainment awaits in the back seat thanks to two 10-inch touchscreen displays on the front seat backrests with an internal 32 GB memory, micro SD card slot, micro USB interface, and Bluetooth capabilities. Settle in and get connected to the digital world with available Porsche Connect, just what you need when you’re on a journey to the future.
At the end of the day, style is simply having the courage to follow your own vision. As a brand that prides itself on bold visions, Porsche has never been afraid to venture out. You can find the new Panamera right at the intersection of stylish design and everyday practicality, masterfully taking the corner and accelerating forward into the future.
