The model line-up of Porsche’s recently-facelifted Panamera has just been completed with the release of the Turbo S.
At 570hp, the new Panamera Turbo S has 20hp more than the previous Turbo S, and 50hp more than the current Panamera Turbo – the extra power coming from a pair of new turbochargers (with larger compressors) and a higher injection pressure. Injection pressure is at 140 bar (20 more than the standard Turbo), and new aluminium alloy pistons with specially-coated piston rings have been placed to withstand the extra power.
Power still comes from a 4.8-litre V8, with 750Nm of torque being available between 2,250 and 5,000rpm (800Nm with overboost). Acceleration from 0-100km/h takes 3.8 seconds and top speed is 310km/h.
The Panamera Turbo S is equipped with Porsche’s seven-speed double-clutch transmission (Porsche Doppelkupplung), sending power through an all-wheel drive system. Other standard features for the Panamera Turbo S include: Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), which is Porsche’s active anti-roll system; Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), which consists of an electronically-controlled rear differential lock to optimize traction; Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB); as well as Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), which consists of adaptive dampers and adaptive air suspension.
The new Panamera Turbo S will be available as an Executive (Executive2) version as well, which is an extended wheelbase version of the Panamera. It measures 15 centimetres more than standard, and also comes equipped with thermal and noise-insulated windows (with privacy glazing), an interior lighting package, as well as a large rear console.
As for the exterior, the Turbo S will ride on 20-inch 911 Turbo II wheels, and has a four-way rear spoiler painted in the exterior colour. The interior will have a two-tone leather scheme, with Executive cars offering rear passengers: an extra 12cm of space in the footwell, seats with active ventilation, as well electronic roll-up sunblinds.
The public debut for the Panamera Turbo S will be at the Tokyo Motor Show next month, with its price in Germany expected to start at EUR 180,024 (EUR 197,041 for the Executive). Fuel consumption is a claimed 10.2l/100km combined, while CO2 output is a claimed 239g/km.
