ATLANTA, Nov. 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Porsche is continuing to increase the model range of the new Panamera: At the Los Angeles Auto Show, the sports car manufacturer will be presenting the luxury sport sedan with a new 330 hp V6 turbo gasoline engine, along with an extended wheelbase Executive version as yet another body option. The new V6 turbo is a highly efficient and agile addition to the impressive range of engines. Power is up by 20 hp from the corresponding engine of the previous Panamera generation. At the same time, Porsche was able to reduce the consumption of this completely redeveloped six-cylinder gasoline engine by up to 1.0 l/100 km on the New European Drive Cycle. The new 330-hp engine is available with rear-wheel drive in the new Panamera and all-wheel drive in the new Panamera 4 or Panamera 4 Executive.
While the Panamera and Panamera 4 with 330 hp redefine what can be expected at one end of the model line, the Executive models with their 5.9 inch (150 millimeter) longer wheelbase expand the body and equipment portfolio at the top end of the model line. The Executive models will be available in the all-wheel drive versions Panamera 4 Executive (330 hp), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive (462 hp), Panamera 4S Executive (440hp) and Panamera Turbo Executive (550 hp). 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.
