    Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    Stuttgart. Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG, Stuttgart, is for the first time presenting the innovative interior concept of the company’s fourth model series.

    Right from the start upon the introduction of the Panamera beginning in Germany on 12 September 2009, the Panamera will be available in its top versions with a V8 power unit and luxurious features.

    Boasting a centre console leading back all the way from the dashboard to the rear seats, Porsche’s four-door Gran Turismo offers a new feeling of space and driving quality on all four seats. The interior provides optimum ergonomic conditions for the driver and, in addition, accentuates the personal privacy of each passenger on four single seats tailored to each occupant. The low seating position and the sporting, low-slung steering wheel ensure that direct feeling for the road so typical of Porsche.

    Apart from these classic values, the Panamera offers the customer numerous options and possibilities to customise the interior individually to his or her personal choice, smooth and natural leather available in a total of 13 colour and material combinations including four bi-colour options teaming up wherever required with seven optional interior trim finish styles including exclusive materials such as Carbon and Olive Nature open-pore wood.

    Four-zone automatic air conditioning is available as an option, providing individual adjustment of temperature, blower intensity and air distribution on each seat.
    The driver and passengers in the new Panamera are protected by driver and front passenger airbags, curtain airbags as well as – on the front seats – side and knee airbags all ensuring maximum safety as standard features in the event of an accident. Side airbags are furthermore available at the rear as an optional feature.

    The comfort seats featured as standard at the front of the Panamera S and 4S are extra-sporting in style and adjust electrically in eight different directions for excellent travel comfort at all times. At the rear two single seats with a folding centre armrest ensure generous legroom and headroom also for tall passengers.

    The Panamera Turbo combines electrical seat adjustment with a Comfort Memory Package offering not only extension of the seat bottom, but also lumbar supports and electrical steering column adjustment. Further alternatives such as adaptive sports seats or comfort seats at the rear electrically adjustable to a wide range of different positions are likewise available as an option.

    The new Panamera is the first Porsche to offer the most supreme standard of high-end audio quality, the High-End Surround Sound System from the Berlin audio specialist Burmester, one of the most renowned high-end audio companies in the world. Never before has such a large, acoustically effective surface of membranes been included in the concept from the start and subsequently implemented in the actual production vehicle. More than 2,400 square centimetres of sound membranes offer an experience in sound very similar to that of a live concert. In all, 16 loudspeakers masterminded by 16 amplifier channels with more than 1,000 W overall output provide a unique sound rounded off by an active subwoofer together with a 300 W Class D amplifier.

    The superior everyday driving qualities of the Panamera are borne out clearly also by the luggage compartment and loading concept: After opening the rear lid, the driver and passengers are able to conveniently stow four suitcases behind the rear seats – putting them into the luggage compartment in an upright position for easy access thanks to the height available.
    Luggage compartment capacity in the Panamera S and 4S is 445 litres or 15.6 cu ft, luggage compartment capacity in the Panamera Turbo is 432 litres or 15.1 cu ft – and with the rear seat backrests tilted down, luggage capacity increases to an ample 1,250 litres or 43.8 cu ft.

    The Panamera is initially entering the market with V8 power units only, featuring either rear or all-wheel drive. Right from the start, the entry-level Panamera S is powered by a 4.8-litre V8 developing maximum output of 400 bhp (294 kW). Power is transmitted to the rear wheels as an option by Porsche’s seven-speed Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) or double-clutch gearbox.

    Acceleration to 100 km/h comes in 5.4 seconds, top speed is 283 km/h or 176 mph. Combined fuel consumption to the EU5 standard, in turn, is 10.8 ltr/100 km, equal to 26.2 mpg imp, and the CO2 emission rating is 253 g/km.

    In conjunction with PDK transmission and including both 19 per cent VAT and specific national equipment, the Panamera S retails in Germany at a price of Euro 98,085.50.

    Fitted with its six-speed manual gearbox as standard, the Panamera S retails at a price of Euro 94,575, again including 19 per cent VAT and all national homologation features.

    The dynamic Panamera 4S features a 4.8-litre V8 developing 400 bhp (294 kW) maximum output, with engine power conveyed to all four wheels via Porsche’s seven-speed PDK Doppelkupplungsgetriebe. In this case acceleration to 100 km/h comes in 5.0 seconds, top speed is 282 km/h or 175 mph. Fuel consumption to the EU5 standard is 11.1 ltr/100 km, equal to 25.4 mpg imp, CO2 emissions are 260 g/km. The retail price including 19 per cent VAT and national specifications is Euro 102,251.

    Ranking right at the top, the Panamera Turbo features a 4.8-litre V8 biturbo developing maximum output of 500 bhp (368 kW), with power transmitted again by Porsche’s seven-gear Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK). In this case this all-wheel-drive model accelerates to 100 km/h in 4.2 seconds and reaches a top speed of 303 km/h or 188 mph. Fuel consumption in the EU combined cycle is 12.2 ltr/100 km, equal to 23.2 mpg imp, CO2 emissions are 286 g/km. The retail price of the Panamera Turbo, finally, including 19 per cent VAT and national specifications, is Euro 135,154.

    All models come with Direct Fuel Injection, low-friction drive systems and lightweight bodyshells. And at the same time all models in the range fitted with Porsche PDK Doppelkupplungsgetriebe feature Porsche’s new Auto Start Stop function automatically switching off the engine when coming to a standstill and with the driver pressing down the brake pedal – for example at the traffic lights or in traffic congestion.

    Re: Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    The order guide for this car will be insanely long with options that will tip every single Panamera above to the other side of 100 000 euros.

    I'm afraid so. Smiley On the other hand I heard that due to the financial crisis worldwife, Porsche marketing decided to keep the initially planned price tags but to bump up the standard options. I'm curious... Smiley

    Btw: I heard a rumor about the price tag of the Burmester sound system...WOW. Smiley
    I can't mention a precise number because it could unveil the source but WOW. Smiley

    I'm very curious about the first year of Panamera production. If they actually succeed in selling 20000 pieces, I buy Mr. Wiedeking a beer. Smiley

    150000 EUR for a halfway well equipped Panamera Turbo...I still can't catch my breath and I'm trying very very hard.

    Re: Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    I'll give a cookie to anyone who does an "option" count for that press releaseSmiley. Gladly most of the essentials will be standard, like the 7 inch screen, electric seats and leather seats, though full leather in exciting colour like do do brown will likely tip the scale €8 000. Don't forget the additional coins for 19 inch rims as 18s are too small for a car that size. 

    Given that the Veyron has its sound system fabricated by the same manufacturer I don't think I wanna know what the price as I suspect it will be near the price of a Fiat 500Smiley In the end credit is due when credit is due and the performance figures are daunting. 0-100km/h in 4.8sec using a mere 400hp and 4.0sec with "only" 500hp is remarcable for a car of that size. The car is less niche that I anticipated and it might save Porsche from a catastrophy as the car overlaps two different segments S-class/7-Series and M5/CLS63. It really offers best of both worlds with world class luxury and options, not to mention performance. Given the turbulent economig climate this isn't the time for niche cars so I suspect that Porsche will managed to sell satisfactory number of cars at the level of 75% percent of 20 000 cars. Potentially even sell 20 000 cars if reviews are top notch. Looking at what's in front of us I can't see how people won't be interested in this spaceship.

    The potential down fall lies in the standard equipment as an S550 comes pretty well equipped at the asking price. For the Panamera S I can already come up with a few must have's that will escalate the price, and those are Sports Chrono plus, PDK, 19 inch rims and metallic paint. Just those options alone are just over 10 000k. 

    In the end BP and Shell executives will probably accept it as a corporate car.Smiley


    Re: Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    I like it except:

     

    the price (why not closer to Cayenne prices? You can get a Cayenne TTS for the price of the Panamera TT in the US, doesn't make sense)

    the low standard options 

    the puddles

    the gear lever (get rid of it) 


    Re: Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    They should have made it a little smaller, shaped a little more like a sedan/saloon, with rear seating for three, not two.  That same car could have been narrower by a few inches just by narrowing the tranny tunnel/center console.

    Then I would have been interested.  Not now....

    Porsche are positioning the Panamera as a highly premium car. The Cayenne shares platform with the Toureg and Q7 making devlopment very short and keeping costs low while the Panamera is from the ground up an entirely new car. Hence the higher price.

    I absolutely agree on rear seats for three (not becuase I have 3 kids Smiley).  For an expensive car like this you're able to take only 3 passengers around Smiley.  I wonder if they have a bench seat option for the back ?

    The dial next to the Tachometer should probably be a multi purpose one, not only for the SC.

    Re: Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    It cost to be on top so I think the price is fair. After all Porsche said it's a sports car for four and in this case it almost is as the acceleration for the Turbo is on a par with a Lamborghini Gallardo, Aston Martin DBS and other sports cars. The car is faster than what we anticipated. 

    Re: Panamera - more detailled infos and interior photos

    0-200 is on par with M5, bit faster than E63...

    It's going to feel pretty claustrophobic in the back with those high backed winged sports seats in the front. Rear passengers aren't going going to have much forward vision.

    Mr. Wiedeking actually drives around in a Maybach...with a driver.

    I'm curious if he is going to switch to the Panamera, rumors indicate that it was him who asked for more leg- and head room in the rear.

    He likes to eat potatoes, not sure about his Porsche Junior Tractor, never heard this(maybe just a publicity stunt? Smiley)

    These diesel engined Allgaier tractors are coming back in the limelight now that Porsche are offering diesel engined cars.

    There is one in the new museum and I saw the one below at the Leipzig guest area last year.

    One of the things I like about Porsche is this absence of snobbery.
