How do you harmoniously combine the dynamic performance of a true sports car and the luxurious comfort of a premium saloon? Porsche answered that with the introduction of the second generation of the Porsche Panamera – now rethought and realigned as well as redeveloped and redesigned to make sure the boundary between performance and luxury is taken down completely.
The four-door Panamera now features redesigned engines and transmissions, a more perfect chassis, an evolution of its display and control concept. Its luxurious performance is defined by a number of new elements like rear axle steering, three-chamber air suspension and active roll compensation.
This latest offering from Porsche is visibly and unmistakably a Panamera with its long yet dynamic proportions, sporty flanks and pronounced shoulders, as well as the typical Porsche flyline – around 20 mm lower at the rear – that stylistically connects the Panamera to the iconic 911.
The new Porsche Panamera has also been endowed with rear axle steering – a configuration typically found in 918 Spyder and 911 Turbo sports cars – thereby resulting to a more precise steering and agile handling. Porsche also worked to improve the brake performance of the new Panamera.
