WORLD PREMIERE OF THE NEW 2017 PORSCHE PANAMERA

• Porsche CEO Oliver Blume presents the latest generation in Berlin

ATLANTA, June 28, 2016 -- On Tuesday, June 28th, Porsche celebrated the world premiere of the new 2017 Panamera in Berlin accompanied by a spectacular display of lights, music and choreography. Over 300 international media representatives – as well as guests from business, sports and the entertainment – were able to view the second generation of the sports sedan for the first time. The new 2017 Porsche Panamera, which has been redeveloped from the ground up, combines two contrasting characteristics better than ever before: it offers both the performance of a sports car and the comfort of a luxury sedan.

'We have tapped into the §egmènt of luxury sport sedans wîth the Panamera. Since it launched in 2009, over 150,000 units of the Panamera have been sold. The new model represents a completely redeveloped automobile – wîth new engines, a new design and new technologies. Furthermore, we are now manufacturing the second generation of the vehicle entirely at our Leipzig production site. To this end, we have invested a sum of 500 million Euros – which includes a completely new body manufacturing facility,' Oliver Blume, Chairman of the Executive Board of Porsche AG, emphasized.

The design language of the new Panamera creates a link to the Porsche 911 through its even more dynamic flyline and by using specific design elements of the iconic sports car. 'An observer will immediately recognize the coupé-like roof line, but it is much 'faster', even more dynamic and includes a new side window look that emphasizes the coupe-like side view even more,' said Michael Mauer, Head of Style Porsche AG, who explained the design objectives that were set for the new model. 'The new Panamera can be identified as a Panamera at first glance, but also as the new Panamera. Its strengths have been reinforced, its weaknesses have been eradicated and above all its distinctive character has been preserved.'

The new twin-turbo engines of the Panamera are more powerful than before, and thanks to the new eight-speed dual-clutch transmission (PDK II) they are up to 16 percent more fuel-efficient according to the New European Driving Cycle. The Panamera will launch wîth two engines: the 550 hp Panamera Turbo and the 440 hp Panamera 4S. Both models will be equipped wîth all-wheel drive as standard.

Vital Stats

7-speed Automatic, 8-speed Tiptronic
To provide an even larger spread between supple ride comfort and agile handling, the Panamera now offers features such as the new three-chamber air suspension, rear axle §teering and the new electronic 4D Chassis Control chassis management sys-tem. Many new assistance systems also enhance ride comfort as well as safety.


In the new Panamera, Porsche is also introducing a future-oriented display and control concept. The new Porsche Advanced Cockpit wîth its smartphone-like user interfaces and configurable LED screens impresses wîth its intuitive functionality. Furthermore, the new Porsche Communication Management (PCM 4.1) offers an entirely new range of connectivity by its intelligent digital functions and online services. In the new Panamera, Porsche Connect is being introduced in all models. It extends existing vehicle functions by adding digital services and apps such as those used to control certain vehicle functions remotely by smartphone – and others to make more efficient use of the driver's time on the go.
