Porsche Panamera Styling

About the Porsche Panamera

When Porsche introduced the Panamera to the world back in 2010, they created an entirely new segment – the executive sports sedan. In the decade that followed, many competitors have shown up to challenge the Panamera to the fast four-door throne, but, as usual, Porsche reigns supreme. Never content with their success, the engineers at Porsche have carefully tuned and tweaked the winning recipe of the Panamera to make it even better. They’ve done the impossible by improving on perfection and creating a car that’s both faster and more comfortable than the previous model.

Some changes, like the now-standard Sport Design front and rear fascia and the Sport steering wheel, are noticeable to the naked eye. Most of these changes, however, must be experienced to be truly understood. New-generation tires. Improved steering, suspension, and brakes. More powerful engines. Impressive technology. With a Panamera, you don’t have to choose between luxury, safety, and performance. Porsche has done what is necessary to excel and remain one step ahead of their contemporaries. After all, it’s what Porsche does best.


What’s New for 2023

While mostly minor, the popular Porsche Panamera does receive a few small tweaks to its successful formula for the new model year. All 2023 Panamera variants receive Adaptive Cruise Control with Autonomous Emergency Braking as standard. The Electric Steering Column is now offered as a standalone option for 2023 as well. Previously, this feature came bundled with the available 14 or 18-way power adjustable seats. Aside from those small adjustments, the Porsche Panamera returns for 2023 mostly unchanged.


What the Critics Say

“Yes, the Porsche Panamera is a great car. Its powertrain lineup includes V6, V8, and plug-in-hybrid options, and there are no bad apples in the bunch. Few cars this size can match the driving enjoyment the Panamera provides. It’s quick off the line and agile around turns, delivering a relaxing ride all the while.” — U.S. News & World Report

“Despite its length, the Panamera is wonderfully maneuverable, the steering is remarkably precise, and the car corners like a champ, especially when the rear-wheel-steering and torque-vectoring technology come into play.” — Kelley Blue Book


Porsche Panamera Features

Porsche Panamera Exterior

Exhilarating Performance

No other executive sports sedan can match the dynamic performance capabilities of the Porsche Panamera. The comprehensive engine portfolio of the Panamera consists of four potent turbocharged variants along with two advanced E-Hybrid powertrains – each engineered with iconic race-proven Porsche characteristics. Serving as the pinnacle of the engine range is the pulse-pounding 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 that cranks out an impressive 620 horsepower and 604 lb-ft of torque. Equally as luxurious as it is agile, the specialized chassis tuning of the Panamera provides the best of both worlds. Available performance suspension features include the Adaptive Air Suspension with three-chamber technology, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport), and Rear-Axle Steering. Optional Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) benefit from larger perforated ceramic brake discs to slow the immense power of the Porsche Panamera. Choose the iconic Sport Chrono Package and you’ll receive more precise tuning of the chassis, engine, and transmission.

Porsche Panamera Interior

Sophisticated Interior

Porsche is more than happy to make your dreams come true by offering an unmatched selection of interior options. As a Panamera buyer, you have dozens of choices when it comes to equipment, colors, and materials for your interior.

Buyers can also choose between two different premium audio systems – one from BOSE®, and one from Burmester.

The 1,455-watt Burmester 3D High-End Surround System includes an active 400-watt subwoofer with a total of 21 speakers.

Porsche Panamera Safety

Innovative Safety & Driver Assistance

In the real world, luxury and performance aren’t everything. Since even the most experienced drivers can use some help on occasion, the Porsche Panamera has the high-tech safety features you expect from a car in this class. For greater confidence behind the wheel, lane-keeping assist and traffic sign recognition are standard equipment while a number of other electronic driving aids are available as options. Night vision assist, lane change assist, surround view cameras, and Porsche InnoDrive with adaptive cruise control are all available as options. Porsche InnoDrive is a next-generation adaptive cruise control system that monitors the road up to 1.8 miles ahead to optimize your speed and reduce driver fatigue by helping out in traffic jams. It’s a dangerous world out there, but the Porsche Panamera is prepared to handle it with the poise and performance you’d expect from the premier executive sports sedan.
