Porsche Exclusive has just released its latest masterpiece, a Panamera Turbo S in Jet Black Metallic. As you can see from the photos, the sporty Panamera Turbo S also comes with plenty of Porsche Exclusive Options such as LED headlights in black including the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS+) as well as a new set of 20-inch Sport Classic wheels painted in high-gloss black.
Behind the wheels, we find yellow brake calipers, which are the perfect addition for the high-gloss black color. At the rear, the Panamera Turbo S features smoked LED taillights and sports tailpipes painted in black.
The interior is dominated by red and black leather, but also by the carbon fiber trim. In addition, the Porsche Crest is embossed on front and rear headrests, while behind the front seats we find the Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment.
Furthermore, the instrument dials are offered in white, just like the Sport Chrono stopwatch instrument dial. What’s more interesting is that the air vent slats are wrapped in leather. An exclusive touch is the gear selector in carbon.
Other options include the personalized illuminated individual door sill guards in carbon and personalized floor mats with leather edging. The pedals and footrest are made of aluminum. Under the hood, there is the 4.8-liter V8 engine that generates 570 hp and 750 Nm of torque between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm, while with overboost function the torque is increased at 800 Nm.
As a result, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.8 seconds (with Launch Control), while top speed is electronically limited at 310 km/h. Fuel consumption is 10.2 liters per 100 km. The standard 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S starts at 180,024 euros in Germany, including VAT.
Porsche has engineered the Panamera Turbo S to achieve an effective conversion of power and torque. This was partly achieved through an optimum power transmission concept as offered by the Porsche Traction Management (PTM) all-wheel drive system. As standard, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S is equipped with the Sport Chrono package that coordinates the drive power and chassis with a single press of a button, thereby ensuring a dependable sporty response.
In addition, the overboost function in the Panamera Turbo S is activated in "Sport" and "Sport Plus" modes as well as during kickdown in "Normal" mode. This overboost function could, albeit temporarily, hike the boost pressure to allow for more spirited acceleration. Meanwhile, the "Launch Control" race start function could optimally coordinate the responses of the engine control system and the PDK gearshift program to achieve the best possible sprint from standstill. The revised gear shifting strategy allows the PDK to change gears at a faster rate, enabling the Panamera Turbo S to sprint from zero to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds.
The chassis that underpins the Panamera Turbo S comes, as standard, with all the active systems developed and introduced to the Gran Turismo range. These include the so-called Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) system that combines adaptive air suspension and adaptive damper control to continuously adjust and adapt the damper forces according to road conditions and driving style.
By pushing the PASM chassis button on the center console, the driver can select from three performance maps: Comfort, Sport and Sport Plus. Meanwhile, the adaptive air suspension could activate different spring rates to allow for wider range of chassis attributes, allowing the driver to choose between a sporty drive and comfortable ride.
