Porsche introduced us to the redeveloped second generation of the Panamera earlier this year with the unveiling of the Panamera 4S, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and the Panamera Turbo. Today, Porsche announced the present a new 330 hp V6 turbo gasoline powered Panamera, along with an extended wheelbase Executive version, at the LA Auto Show next week.
In total, Porsche will reveal 6 new models: The new 330 hp V6 engine is available in the rear-wheel drive Panamera and the all-wheel drive Panamera 4 or Panamera 4 Executive. In addition, Porsche will show off their 462 hp Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive, the 440 hp Panamera 4S Executive and the 550 hp Panamera Turbo Executive.
No word yet on pricing or delivery for the newer models. However, we do know that delivery of the 2017 Panamera 4S and Turbo are expected to begin in January of 2017 here in the U.S.
As for the new models being debuted in LA, details are a bit scarce. Porsche did have this to say about the new, longer, Excutive version.
The new Porsche Panamera Executive versions are equipped even more exclusively. The standard features are supplemented with a large panoramic roof, heated comfort seats with multi-way electrical adjustment in the front and rear, and adaptive air suspension with an electronically controlled damper system (Porsche Active Suspension Management / PASM). The roll-up sunblind behind the head restraints in the rear also comes as standard. The included equipment of the Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive is even more comprehensive: Among other things, both models benefit from rear-axle steering and soft-close doors. As the most powerful model, the Panamera Turbo Executive is equipped with standard features such as four-zone climate control, LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS), and ambient interior lighting.
As an option, all Porsche Panamera Executive models are available with a newly developed large rear center console, and the latest generation of Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment. The 10.1-inch displays integrated into the backrests of the front seats can be detached for a wide range of uses; when needed, they transform the rear of the Panamera into a digital workplace. The high-quality displays can also be used as tablets outside the vehicle. Similar to the existing Panamera models, the exterior of the Executive versions can be further individualized with a Sport Design Package.
