Porsche has introduced the Panamera Turbo S at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, where the model has made its public debut.
Officially unveiled just a few weeks ago, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the carmaker officially pulling the wraps off its body during the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. The model in question is coming with some exterior tweaks, such as the different front bumper, the redesigned LED headlights, the new bumper in the rear, the larger rear window and more.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is getting the Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus system, along with an electronically controlled rear limited slip differential, which will optimize traction and handling. The model in question will also get carbon ceramic brakes and an extra 150 mm (5.9 inches) added to the wheelbase, which will be translated into more rear leg room.
Power to the Porsche Panamera Turbo S is being provided by a 4.8 liter V8 twin turbo engine, which is producing a total output of 570 HP (419 kW), 20 HP more than its predecessor. The unit has received a larger compressor, which is improving the air flow and combustion, and it’s allowing the model to accelerate from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in 3.6 seconds, before reaching a top speed of 192 mph (309 km/h). The Panamera Turbo S costs 23,146 GBP more than the Panamera Turbo, at 131,049 GBP.
