By September the sedan will be available for sale in Europe and they will come exclusively with the V8 engine. The four-seater Panamera has a unique center console that runs from the dashboard straight through the rear seats.

The interior comes with the most luxurious interior finishes in a sports car. There are 13 trim combination options available for customers along with four-zone automatic air conditioning and seats that are power adaptable.

Airbags for both driver and front passenger keep them safe as well as curtain airbags together with side and knee airbags on the front seats and optional side airbags for the rear passengers. The latest Porsche Panamera is the first in the brand to include a high-end audio system created in partnership with the German Burmester.

The system comes with 16 audio speakers powered by 16 amp channels with in excess of 1,000W and subwoofer of 300W. The Panamera S and 4S come with a 445-liter luggage compartment while the Turbo has 432 liters and space is increased to 1,250 liters when the rear seats are folded.
