Porsche has given the Panamera, one of its most successful models, a much-needed rebirth. The 4-door sports sedan is now accompanied by a more powerful Turbo S variant and a plug-in hybrid.
There has been a host of subtle changes throughout the exteriors of the 2021 Panamera. All three models now come with the Sport Design bumper, which used to be a paid addition in the last model. At the rear, you now get the signature single-bar taillight. Other exterior changes include new circular quad exhausts, three new 20.21-inch alloy designs and a refreshed colour palette.
The cabin of the Panamera largely remains the same, but now includes some more features that include Lane keep assist with road sign recognition, night vision assist, a 360-degree camera and a head-up display.
Under the hood, the Turbo S packs the most punch. It comes equipped with a 4.0-litre, twin-turbo V8 turbo that delivers 630 hp and 820 Nm of torque. This allows the Panamera Turbo S to sprint from 0-100 kmph in just 3.1 seconds, and achieves a top speed of 315 kmph. Similarly, the Panamera GTS gets the 4.0-litre V8 that produces 480 hp and 620 Nm. The highlight in this lineup is undoubtedly the 4S e-Hybrid. It pairs a 2.9-litre V6 with an electric motor, which collectively produce 560 hp and 750 Nm of torque.
The 2021 Porsche Panamera is scheduled foe a Germany release only, for now. With worldwide expansion inevitably rolling out sometime later in the year.
