Let’s obtain the bad details out of the methods first: A hands-on transmission is no much longer provided in the Panamera. The 2014 Porsche Panamera runs in uncommon air.
2014 Porsche Panamera -Engine and Mechanical
The engine is Porsche’s very own essentially the 4.8-liter V-8 minus a cyndrical tube from each financial institution and also it has absolutely nothing to do with the Volkswagen-designed 3.6-liter VR6 uncovered in the Cayenne as well as a number of other VW Group styles. Those which actually want the normally aspirated 4.8 could still obtain their repair, using the Panamera GTS, which now draws 440 steed power from the factory against last year’s 430. At the leading of the selection sitting downs the Panamera Turbo, which keeps its twin-turbocharged 4.8-liter V-8, now rated at 520 horsepower 20 also a lot more compared to in the past.
The Panamera S E-Hybrid (note that the “S Hybrid” designation has actually been binned) gets plug-in efficiency as well as brand-new electric batteries. While its Audi-sourced supercharged 3.0-liter V-6 stays the same, a brand-new electric motor gives double the output. Properly, system power leaps from 380 horse power to 416, as well as pure electric range is stated to be about 20 miles. The 2014 Porsche Panamera diesel remains limited to Europe, and keepings its 250-hp, Audi-sourced 3.0-liter TDI V-6. All Panamera designs are geared up with a ZF-sourced seven speed dual clutch automatic, with the exception of the diesel and also the hybrid versions, which are matched with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic. Regardless of the boosts in power almost across the board, there ares even more in the jobs. Following year, Porsche will certainly improve its diesel output by 50 steeds to an even 300, and the for-now-hiatused Panamera Turbo S will certainly return with an outcome in the arena of 570 equine power.
New Porsche Panamera 2014 Interior as well as Exterior
Not just will certainly all the Panameras obtain more highly effective, the 4S and also the Turbo (as well as, ultimately, the Turbo S) will certainly be offered in long-wheelbase kind, certainly to fit the wishes of the Chinese market. Such extended designs will be referred to as “Executive,” and will be lengthened by a monstrous 5.9 inches doing little to help the chubby car’s percentages. Other than the taffy-pull treatment, few modifications have in fact been made to the interior, although color and also trim alternatives have actually been modified. The V6 is mated to the smooth, however testing to articulate, Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) seven-speed transmission.
The Panamera’s traditional gadgets is composed of 18-inch tires, bi-Xenon self-leveling headlamps, eight-way power seats, automatic dual-zone environment control, Porsche Communication Management with a 7-inch display for Navigation, Audio and also Bluetooth, as well as a 4.8-inch instrument collection TFT show that is vehicle driver configurable. Ours is the uprated Panamera S model, that includes the previously mentioned twin-turbo V6, adaptive air suspension and also adaptive headlamps.
