‘Second-Generation’ Panamera to Hit U.S. in January

 

The “second generation” of the Porsche Panamera will arrive at Isringhausen Imports and other U.S. dealerships in January 2017, bringing with it a number of design and performance improvements. Among them are:
  • Rear Axle Steering – Adapted from the 918 Spyder and 911 Turbo, the 2017 Panamera’s rear-axle steering moves opposite of the front wheels at low speeds to shorten its turning radius and in phase with the front wheels at higher speeds for greater stability.
  • V6 and V8 Engines – The turbochargers of the new Panamera engines are integrated centrally in the V of the cylinder banks. This makes the engines more compact and allows them to be mounted lower, reducing the vehicle’s center of gravity. The eight-cylinder engine propels the Panamera Turbo from 0 to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds, earning the moniker of “world’s fastest luxury sedan” from Autoblog.com.
  • Aluminum Side Body – The 2017 Panamera’s side body – along with its hood, hatch, roof and fenders – are made entirely of aluminum, lightening the vehicle by about 200 pounds.
  • Dual 7-inch Touch Screens – The new Panamera sheds several buttons and dials in favor of two 7-inch displays placed directly in the driver’s line of sight. An analog tachometer in the middle of the instrument cluster, a hallmark of every Porsche sports car, remains.
The new 2017 Porsche Panamera arrives at U.S. dealers in January 2017.
