    Panamera Weight

    This hasn't been confirmed yet but apparently even the heaviest Panamera will have a weight slightly below 2 tons. It can't be excluded that a fully equipped Panamera Turbo exceeds this weight but right now it really seems that the weight is under 2 tons. Good news? Well...it would have been if the weight was somewhere below 1800 kg but 2 tons? I don't know, honestly.

    Re: Panamera Weight

    I believe that weight will be quite dependant on the options as reclining, heated and sliding rear seats can bump up the weight a 20-30kg or so. Further more I don't think we should get too hung up with figures as heavy cars like the R8 and GT-R have managed to out-perform lighter cars.

     Another good example is the BMW X6. With the same weight and power as it's rivals it still manages to accelerate signifigantly faster as well as feel lighter than the figures on the spec sheet would suggest. Therefore I think we should fall back a bit and wait for some figures and lap times from Porsche before we condem the car.


    Re: Panamera Weight

    I'm afraid that a fully loaded Panamera weights over 100 kg more than a "naked" car. I may be wrong but this is what I heard from various sources. Of course it doesn't really matter if a car weights 2 tons or 2.1 tons but I expect a Porsche sports limousine to be lighter than similar models from the competition. I know that even Porsche "cooks with water" only and that the technology used can't be much different to competitor.

    Additional weight also means additiona fuel consumption (not that I really care on such a car) and especially less agility/sportiness. This can be compensated by a clever chassis/electronic suspension management, no doubt about it but I wish these cars were fast even without electronic gimmicks.

    I'm pretty sure that he Panamera is going to be the hell of a sports limousine and I already heard about an under 8 Min. track time on the Nordschleife for the Panamera Turbo, which would be pretty impressive for a limousine. Still: the weight is essential from many points of view and I just hope that the Panamera will not exceed 2 tons.
