“That’s the way we’ve always done it.” Not really a sentence to inspire change. Except at Porsche. That’s because we’ve always made each new generation of engines higher-performing, more dynamic and more efficient than the last. The new engine generation of the Panamera models now takes the next significant step forwards.
The new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid will change your view of hybrid technology. And your everyday life. With 462 hp of pure Sports Car performance – and fuel economy that will impress . This is more than just a courageous step. It is a giant leap into the future. The combination of combustion engine and electric machine is crucial for this peak performance. The combustion engine builds up power and torque as engine speed increases. The maximum torque of the electric machine is available immediately. As a result, consistently high overall torque and dynamic responsiveness are available over an extremely wide rpm range. And your adrenalin also reaches a new maximum level.

Getting more power from an engine is worthwhile only when you know where it needs to go. And how quickly and effectively. The latest Panamera models are therefore equipped with a newly developed 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), which translates the tremendous drive force of the respective engine into the acceleration expected of a sports car.
Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. 7th and 8th gear have a long ratio, which helps to keep engine revs low even at high road speeds – for efficient and comfortable driving over long distances. The precise gearshifts take place in milliseconds with no discernible interruption in the flow of power – as you would expect of a sports car.

All Panamera models are equipped with Porsche Traction Management (PTM). This active all-wheel drive with electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch ensures the optimum distribution of drive force whatever the driving situation – for excellent acceleration power on long straights, through tight corners and on road surfaces with varying grip.
The multi-plate clutch regulates the distribution of drive force between the rear axle and the front axle. Driving conditions are constantly monitored, enabling the system to respond to a variety of situations. Sensors check, among other variables, the rotation speeds of all four wheels, the longitudinal and lateral acceleration of the vehicle, and the steering angle. If the rear wheels threaten to spin under acceleration, a greater proportion of drive force is distributed to the front by a more powerful engagement of the multi-plate clutch.

Whether you’re behind the wheel or occupying a passenger seat in the front or rear: in a Porsche, every drive should feel like sport, not transport.
The chassis of the new Panamera models performs this balancing act between sport and comfort effortlessly – and in the most masterful way possible: with further-developed, optional chassis technologies. Examples include the adaptive air suspension with three-chamber technology boasting a 60 % greater air capacity than that of the predecessor, new Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and rear-axle steering. What’s also new is the integrated Porsche 4D Chassis Control system, which centrally analyses the driving situation in all three spatial dimensions, e.g. pitch, roll and yaw, computes optimum driving states from these data, and synchronizes all chassis systems in real time: the fourth dimension. The objective is to optimize overall performance, and to make the middle ground between sporty driving and comfort as expansive as possible.

Available for the Panamera models for the first time: optional rear-axle steering. It enhances performance and everyday driveability in equal measure.
During low-speed maneuvers, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction to that of the front wheels. This has the virtual effect of shortening the wheelbase. The turning circle is reduced, agility is increased and parking becomes noticeably easier to manage.
During high-speed maneuvers, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. This virtual extension of the wheelbase increases driving stability.
Rear-axle steering makes it clear that there is no contradiction between stability and agility or performance and everyday driveability. The result: greater maneuverability and driving safety in everyday use – and a significant increase in maximum driving performance.

PASM is an electronic damping control system. It actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel, based on current road conditions and driving style. The effect is to reduce vehicle body movement and thereby improve comfort in all four seats.
Three modes are available: ‘Normal’, ‘SPORT’ and ‘SPORT PLUS’. Sensors record the body movements as they occur during powerful acceleration, braking, fast cornering or on uneven road surfaces. From these data, the control unit of the Porsche 4D Chassis Control system determines the effect on the actual driving state of the car and modifies the damping force on each of the wheels in accordance with the selected mode. The results are tangible: increased driving stability, improved comfort and enhanced performance.

New Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) is an active roll stabilization system with an ultra sporty setup. It registers the lateral inclination of the body induced by cornering from the very outset and acts to suppress it. The system also reduces the lateral instability of the vehicle on uneven ground.
The new system sees the introduction of active electromechanical anti-roll bars. These provide a much faster response and are tuned for sporty driving. The result: improved performance.
In combination with new PDCC Sport, PTV Plus enhances driving dynamics and stability. As a function of steering angle and steering speed, accelerator pedal position, yaw rate and vehicle speed, it improves steering response and precision by strategic braking of the right or left rear wheel. At high speeds and when accelerating out of corners, the electronically controlled rear differential lock with fully variable torque distribution also acts to provide greater driving stability and traction.
The overall result? Strong resistance to destabilization side forces for self-assured poise. Excellent traction. Great agility at every speed – with precise turn-in and well-balanced load transfer characteristics. And, accordingly, even more fun in the corners.

We rise to the challenge we’re given. The same applies to the wheel dimensions of the new Panamera. The tires are wider, the contact surface larger – for enhanced performance under acceleration and braking. As of now, optional sizes of up to 21 inches are available from a range of wheel designs, assuring you of a grand appearance. The Panamera models are equipped as standard with 19-inch wheels. The material? Alloy, of course. The design? Classic and sporty. A choice of other 19-, 20- and 21-inch wheels is available on request.

With SPORT mode, you can swap from a comfort-oriented tuning to a sporty setup. The electronic engine management system demands a sharper response. Engine dynamics become more direct. In SPORT mode, PDK shifts up later and shifts down sooner. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and optional Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) and rear-axle steering also switch to SPORT mode, delivering harder damping and more direct turn-in – and even greater agility through corners.

Adrenaline at the push of a button: the Sport Chrono Package offers an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine and transmission. The kit includes a digital and analog stopwatch, a graphic in the instrument cluster showing longitudinal and lateral acceleration, and a performance display for viewing lap times in Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
What’s new is the mode switch on the steering wheel with SPORT Response button, derived from the 918 Spyder. Four driving modes are available to choose from: ‘Normal’, ‘SPORT’, ‘SPORT PLUS’ and ‘Individual’ – for an even more personalized driving style.
In SPORT mode alone, the new Panamera delivers increased dynamics and more direct handling. In SPORT PLUS mode, the engine becomes even more responsive. The rev-limiter is adjusted to a harder setting. Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) are retuned for harder damping and more direct turn-in. The adaptive air suspension drops to Low Level and firms the spring rate. The rearaxle steering acts to provide even greater agility. Another function included in the package is Launch Control – for optimum acceleration from a standing start.
The stopwatch mounted on the dashboard displays recorded driving time or can be used as a conventional clock. Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is upgraded to include a performance display, enabling you to view, store and evaluate laps or other driving times.
Pressing the button in the center of the mode switch primes the engine and transmission for the fastest possible unleashing of power (e.g. for overtaking).
In other words, maximum responsiveness – for a period of approximately 20 seconds.
In conjunction with the Sport Chrono Package, Porsche Stability Management (PSM) is supplemented by a ‘Sport’ mode. It allows a significantly more sporty driving style, with PSM remaining active in the background. For a further enhancement to your driving experience.

Porsche E-Performance is everything that you expect from a Porsche. And more. It is goose bumps. G-forces. Adrenalin. Because we are not satisfied with merely boosting efficiency when we can take performance and driving pleasure to the limits at the same time. There is a good reason why all of our experience and successes in motor sports have a major influence on development.
The core of Porsche E-Performance is the vehicle. Our plug-in hybrid technology therefore has to meet two strict requirements. Firstly, it must drastically reduce fuel consumption and emissions. Secondly, it must deliver an experience that pushes the driver firmly back into the seat. Which is precisely the right place to be in a Porsche.
It takes courage to try out something new. Of course, this is something we knew already. And yet we stick to this principle. It therefore almost goes without saying that our next step when it comes to Porsche E-Performance should involve a Sports Car that has revolutionized the sedan segment.
The result of our work combines performance and practicality in equal measure. A hybrid drive that perfectly combines the combustion engine and electric machine. For your everyday life. For an outstanding driving experience. For the future of the Sports Car.

A few years ago, everything to do with the sedan suddenly changed. Large, cumbersome and thickly padded instantly seemed outmoded qualities. On the road, something happened – something rather fast and dynamic: a sports car came along. A sports car with four seats, an unmistakable silhouette and performance figures normally associated only with a Porsche.
The Panamera. It changed everything. For drivers of sedans first and foremost. Sporting spirit – in business and in personal life – found its automotive counterpart. The courage to perform found a matching performer.
Now the change continues. Forwards. On the road, something is happening again. For sporty drivers – and their sporty companions – our engineers and designers have created the next Panamera. With the courage of a new generation.
Our engineers have demonstrated their courage with the Panamera concept. By continually re-evaluating and reinventing. By reconciling apparent contradictions: performance and comfort, dynamics and efficiency, career and family. And by forever remaining true to our roots, with shared traits like the ignition on the left and the tachometer in the middle – in short: typical Porsche DNA. The result? Singularity. Of the Porsche kind.
New Porsche InnoDrive and other innovative assistance systems make driving not only safer, more efficient and more relaxing – but also more enthralling. Typically Porsche.
And it’s more dynamic than ever: thanks to Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport), Porsche 4D Chassis Control, three-chamber air suspension and – for the first time in the Panamera – rear-axle steering.
And because a Porsche is always heading in the direction of the future, the new Panamera models are fully digitally networked thanks to Porsche Connect.
The new Panamera. Courage changes everything.

The new Panamera Executive models combine sporty driving with a comfortable work zone in the rear compartment – thanks to an extra 15 cm added to the length of the body, which benefits the rear passengers the most. Visual hallmarks of the Executive models are silver-coloured elements in the slats of the front air intakes and above the sideskirts. The air outlet trims in the front wings are in silver colour with a high-gloss finish.
The standard specification includes adaptive air suspension, a panoramic sunroof, side airbags in the rear compartment and a rear roll-up sunblind. Particularly pleasant: power seats in the rear compartment with seat heating and comfort headrests.
Panamera 4S Executive and Turbo Executive models are additionally equipped with rear-axle steering, ParkAssist including reversing camera and soft-close doors. Standard in the Panamera Turbo Executive: four-zone air conditioning system.

Does a sporty sedan really have to look like a sedan? Or can it look rather more athletic? With a taut roof line, for example, that displays a sleek and harmonious contour more likely to be associated with a two-seater?
The silhouette and proportions of the new Panamera models are more Porsche than ever. Clearly perceived rounded transitions, powerful muscles and a sharpened sports car silhouette emphasize the precision of the new design.
The wheelbase is 1.2 in. longer than that of the predecessor – the shorter overhang at the front and the longer overhang at the rear lend visual dynamism. The more prominent sculpting of the side creates the customary Porsche waistline and sense of lightness.
Characteristic features of all Panamera models: the light strip on the rear end and the slimline three-dimensional LED taillights with four-spot brake lights. The extending rear spoiler integrated into the body reduces lift at the rear axle at high speeds.

The interior has been completely restyled – and nevertheless remains typically Porsche. The center console ascends towards the front. The dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide. The analog rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster.
Also new is the control concept: Porsche Advanced Cockpit. The center console with Direct Touch Control has a glass-like surface with touch-sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions. In between: the compact gear selector. A high-resolution 12-inch touchscreen display is integrated into the dashboard. In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control, the passengers in the rear also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the tachometer, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
Above all, though, there is plenty of space and comfort. Not so typical of a sports car. Absolutely typical of the new Panamera.

For over 60 years, we’ve been working on being faster. Even when it comes to slowing down. That’s why the new Panamera models are equipped with a brake system having six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston equivalents at the rear. The brake discs are internally vented and slotted. This improves braking behavior even under extreme conditions and heat is dissipated more effectively. The one-piece brake calipers have an enclosed construction. This makes them lighter yet highly resistant to deformation. Pedal travel is tight, the pressure point precise, the braking distance impressively short.

Proven in motorsport, Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB) is available as an option. For the new Panamera models, the cross-drilled ceramic brake discs of PCCB now have a diameter of 420 mm at the front and 390 mm at the rear – for even more formidable braking performance. PCCB features 10-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers on the front axle and four-piston units at the rear – all painted in yellow – to provide braking forces that are considerably more powerful and, crucially, are exceptionally consistent. PCCB enables shorter braking distances in even the toughest road and race conditions. Safety under high-speed braking is also improved thanks to its excellent fade resistance. Another advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the ceramic brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of a similar design and size. This results in better roadholding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads, as well as greater agility and a further improvement in handling.

In an era of global climate change, every automotive manufacturer is asking what it has to offer right now. Our answer? Excellent performance together with excellent efficiency.
Vehicles manufactured by Porsche demonstrate that even high-performance sports cars can achieve moderate fuel consumption and exhaust emission values in their respective category. This is accomplished, on the one hand, through the efficient use of fuel by means of efficiency-enhancing technologies such as auto start/stop, thermal management, electrical system recuperation, adaptive cylinder control and coasting. On the other hand, catalytic converters with stereo Lambda control circuits provide efficient emission control.
Intelligent lightweight construction is integral to the Porsche identity. This identity is expressed in the form of a high proportion of aluminium, magnesium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steels. All materials have been strategically selected, and the paints used are predominantly environmentally friendly water-based paints. Each lightweight material is easily recyclable and all plastic components are labelled to facilitate future separation for recycling.
In short, the Panamera is around 95 % recoverable.
All Porsche models – including the Panamera – are designed to operate on fuels with an ethanol content of up to 10 %, e.g. ‘E10’. Ethanol has a positive impact on the CO2 balance because it is derived from plants that absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.

This system regulates the speed of your Panamera fully independently in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. Radar sensors on the front end scan the road ahead. Let’s imagine you’ve selected a cruising speed but have begun to gain on the vehicle in front because it is driving more slowly – the system reduces the speed of your vehicle by restricting throttle or gently applying the brakes until your chosen distance from the vehicle in front is restored.
Your Panamera now continues to maintain this distance from the vehicle ahead. If it brakes even more, Adaptive Cruise Control will reduce your speed accordingly – even down to a halt. As soon as the road ahead clears, your vehicle will accelerate back up to the cruising speed originally set.

Those who drive a Porsche want to drive. The more sporty, more comfortable, more efficient and more safe the drive the better. Porsche InnoDrive assists you in a completely new way.
The system enhances adaptive cruise control with additional, innovative functions.
It predictively optimises your speed. With the aid of high-resolution navigation data and information supplied by the radar and video sensors, Porsche InnoDrive determines speed limits and topographical road features, such as gradients or corner radii, along your route even before you reach them – and modifies the gearshift strategy and speed of the Panamera accordingly. For intelligent driving and a significant efficiency advantage.
You can adapt the driving feel by pressing the SPORT button. Depending on the mode, the system selects the optimum parameters for engine management and gear selection, including coasting and deceleration.
Implemented for the first time at Porsche in the Panamera, the system uses the knowledge gained from its prediction horizon of up to 1.8 miles to formulate the optimum timing for acceleration, constant speed driving and deceleration phases to provide a harmonious driving experience.
Imagine, for example, that a speed restriction is in force further along the route but the traffic sign is not yet in sight of the driver: the system already knows that deceleration will be required and initiates a fuel-saving coasting maneuver.
Porsche InnoDrive represents the typically Porsche realization of efficient driving – for greater comfort and greater driving pleasure.
Another feature of Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control is Traffic Jam Assist. It eases the burden on the driver when congestion is encountered on major highways.
At speeds of up to approximately 37 mph, the system uses gentle steering inputs to keep the vehicle in the middle of the lane, regulates the distance from vehicles in front and follows the queue ahead where system limitations allow. To do this, Traffic Jam Assist tracks roadway signs and other vehicles on the road. The benefit? Appreciable stress relief and greater comfort on long drives.
* The assistance provided by Porsche InnoDrive is subject to system limitations. The driver must monitor driving style at all times and intervene in cases of doubt. The system can be overridden at any time by use of the brake or accelerator pedal.
Porsche InnoDrive is not available in some countries.

Lane Change Assist uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of the vehicle and the blind spots on either side. As you move to change lane, the system issues a visual warning signal in the exterior mirrors if another vehicle is rapidly approaching your vehicle from behind or is residing in one of your blind spots. The function can be activated in PCM as required.
During low-speed turns, new Turn Assist improves safety at the rear. When approaching an intersection, Turn Assist issues a visual warning if it detects objects approaching in the blind spots behind your vehicle.

Lane Keep Assist is a camera-based system for automatic detection of divider line markings on the road. The system eases the burden on the driver by providing steering assistance, helping to keep the vehicle in lane.
Integrated traffic sign recognition uses a camera and navigation data to detect speed limits and ‘no passing’ zones. Information is displayed in the instrument cluster. The advantage over information stored in the navigation database is that even temporary speed restrictions can be detected.
New for Porsche is the corner notification, an enhancement to the traffic sign recognition function. Based on navigation system data and camera recognition of cornering road signs, the system displays an arrowed direction warning on the instrument cluster display alerting you to tight corners. Long before you reach them.

ParkAssist is fitted in all Panamera models and audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected to the front and rear of the vehicle. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning on the central display screen.
The reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and maneuvering. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.
The optionally available Surround View system supplements the reversing camera with three more high-resolution cameras – one in the front apron and one in each lower trim of the exterior mirrors. Based on the information supplied by all four cameras, the system generates a virtual bird’s eye view of the car and displays it on the PCM screen. It is also possible to switch between various camera views to improve visibility, e.g. at narrow exits.

Analog meets digital: the new instrument cluster of the Panamera models is reminiscent of Porsche motorsport history – and, at the same time, it is as modern as only it can be.
In the middle and in direct view of the driver is the analog tachometer, its needle integral to its truly classic design. To the left and right, two high-resolution displays provide you with a variety of information as and when you need it, such as the navigation map or Night Vision Assist.
On the left-hand side of the tachometer is the speedometer. In its center, you can see data relating to adaptive cruise control, for example. In the display field on the outer left, you can choose to show the speed limit indicator, traffic sign recognition or the external temperature.
On the right-hand side, the possibilities are even more varied. The inside display field is occupied by information from the on-board computer, the fuel gauge or the residual range. In the field on the outside right, you can see the time. And there’s also the option of viewing the map of the navigation system.

The front seats offer a high level of comfort and provide support in fast corners without restricting freedom of movement. The seat height, squab and backrest angles and fore/aft position are electrically adjustable.
Available as an option, adaptive sport seats (18-way, electric) including memory package provide even better lateral support – thanks to the elevated side bolsters on the seat squab and backrest. Electrically adjustable, they offer comfort on long journeys and made-to-measure lateral support in the corners.
The most striking feature of the rear seats? There are two separate ones. With plenty of leg- and headroom and offering excellent lateral support through fast corners without sacrificing comfort. Eight-way power seats are available as an option for the rear in any Panamera model. In addition to the electric backrest adjustment, seat squab length adjustment and lumbar support, there is a facility to adjust the front passenger seat from the rear compartment (depending on equipment specification). In conjunction with adaptive sport seats in the front, sport seats featuring elevated side bolsters are also fitted in the rear.
On request, the power seats are also available with a massage function – front and rear. With five programs and five intensity levels to choose from, 10 air cushions in each backrest provide a relaxing treat for the back muscles. For improved seating and long-distance comfort.
