Recently Porsche premiered the second generation of the Porsche Panamera, a model redesign that is sure to please Porsche enthusiasts. The German automaker took this opportunity to overhaul the already excellent sports sedan with a reengineered exterior, comfortable interior, and enhanced technology.
Here’s a brief overview of what’s new in the 2017 Porsche Panamera, for sale now at Porsche Asheville.
The redesign of the Porsche is enough to make it seem almost like a whole new vehicle while holding on to what made the original Panamera great.
The first thing you’ll notice about the 2017 Panamera is the newly refreshed, striking exterior design. With an aggressive front end and flowing back, the new Panamera has a presence that draws inspiration from the rest of the Porsche range.
The new 2017 Porsche Panamera slims down the exterior design of the original model, giving it a lower roof and a sleek rear that’s reminiscent of the Porsche 911. The redesigned adaptive matrix-beam LED headlights and longer wheelbase contributes to the car’s dynamic look.
The sleeker design and lower ceiling don’t come at the cost of headroom and comfort for passengers. The feel of the interior has been thoroughly improved. The various buttons and dials of the original Panamera control center have been replaced with a touchscreen interface that brings the Panamera into the future. Two sculpted rear bucket seats make the back seat just as comfortable as the front.
The new Panamera is as powerful as it is attractive. As the first Porsche car to feature the innovative MSB architecture, the front-engined Panamera offers exceptional rear or all-wheel drive capabilities. The Panamera comes with a 330 horsepower twin-turbo 3.0L V6 as standard, with up to 550 breathtaking horsepower available with the Panamera Turbo — perfect for driving on the mountain roads around Asheville.
The Panamera is currently available in a range of dynamic configurations that make it easier than ever to have the perfect sports car to match your desires. Aside from the standard Panamera, described above, you can also drive a Hybrid or Turbo model — each with a wide selection of trims.
For example, if you choose the standard new Porsche Panamera model, you’ll have the following trim options:
Panamera 4 Sport Turismo
Panamera 4 Executive
Panamera 4S Sport Turismo
Panamera 4S Executive
The new Panamera E-Hybrid is available as:
Panamera 4 E-Hybrid
Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Sport Turismo
Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive
Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid
Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Executive
This model gives you the same level of comfort and luxury as the standard model, but with the bonus of added fuel efficiency.
Opt for the new Panamera Turbo and your options will include the standard trim, the Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo, or the Panamera Turbo Executive. This edition kicks things up another notch with a 4.0L twin-turbo V8, which produces a whopping 550 horsepower. With the Turbo you can shoot from 0 to 60 in 3.6 seconds, making the Panamera Turbo the perfect car for anyone looking for truly superior sports car power.
