The German automaker has decided to vastly improve the second generation Panamera sedan, from reworking the trademark hunch to upgrading everything about performance – including the Nurburgring record for luxury sedans.
The Panamera hasn’t been commissioned throughout the world’s dealerships – so if you’re a possible client or just an infatuated fan you can check out their official preview of the car’s secrets. First off, when people do get their hands on it, they can select from three powertrains which mate biturbo engines, an eight-speed dual clutch transmission and four-wheel drive. There’s also a new three-chamber air suspension for better ride and comfort, which seamlessly switches from a soft cruising ride to firm cornering – and in the video we can see it put through its paces around the Nürburgring.
For those high speed cruising Autobahn times, the Panamera offers a vast array of tech goodies. The all-new instrument panel still holds an analog tachometer but has fully digital displays on each side. The widescreen infotainment system is at the heart of the center stack, and there are also nice gimmick touches such as the folding air vents. The 2017 Porsche Panamera is expected to reach European dealerships this November, while North American availability is still a matter of debate but most likely won’t be later than the first part of 2017.
