Entry-level 2010 Porsche Panamera V6 priced at $74,400

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Porsche's 300hp V6 Panamera and Panamera 4 are currently on display at the Beijing Auto Show. It can be recalled that in 2009, Porsche debuted its historic Panamera S, 4S and Turbo in nearby Shanghai. In June 2010, US Porsche dealerships will be offering the Panamera with an MSRP of $74,400 and the Panamera 4 an MSRP of $78,900 (excluding destination).

A 3.6-liter V6 with Direct Fuel Injection (DFI) equips both new entry level Gran Turismos, generating 300hp and 295 lb-ft of torque.

This all-new Porsche engine is built on the same line as the normally aspirated and twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V8 engines powering the Panamera S, 4S and Turbo. The Panamera distributes its power to the road through the rear wheels, while the Panamera 4 comes standard with active all-wheel drive.

The US models will feature Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK), the company's new and ground-breaking seven-speed double-clutch gearbox as standard.

Other equipment offered as standard include an electric moonroof and power liftgate, the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with navigation, Bi-Xenon headlights, Bluetooth telephone connectivity, and the universal audio interface to connect an external audio source such as an iPod or a USB stick with the PCM system.

The Panamera and Panamera 4, like all other Porsches, were developed according to the Porsche Intelligent Performance philosophy.

This means that they offer more performance on less fuel plus they have increased efficiency and have lower CO2 emissions. Porsche is fitting these cars with the PDK gearbox and the Auto Start Stop function, making them significantly more fuel efficient than their normally aspirated V8 siblings.
