The turbocharged flagship sedan – the holder of that record Nurburgring time – has been caught looking great on the streets of Germany’s capital Berlin.
With customers still expecting for the first deliveries of the second-generation Porsche Panamera to kick off in Europe starting this November, but it appears that some people get luckier than others. A dark gray Porsche Panamera was spotted on the streets of the affluent shopping neighborhood in Berlin and the turbocharged sedan looks right at home surrounded by the high-end venues. This is not the first time the Panamera has been caught out and about, but since it’s fully barren of any camouflage we can benchmark its look against the real world to see if it belongs in there. The shots are doing the designers justice, as they managed to eschew the hunchbacked looks of the first generation and went for a clean, modern appearance. And yes, we can see the influences from the current 911.
And those big wheels and chunky brakes are a statement to the Turbo’s capabilities, which has been gifted an entirely new engine. This biturbo 4-liter V8 kicks with 542 horsepower (404 kilowatts) and 568 pound-feet (770 Newton-meters) of torque, being routed to all four wheels via an eight-speed dual clutch transmission. Add in the Sport Chrono option and you can sprint to 62 mph in a mere 3.6 seconds.
