2017 Porsche Panamera
It’s been seven years since its initial release so the 2017 Porsche Panamera was due for some revisiting. The second gen Panamera fortifies the car’s raison d’être of luxurious comfort with sports car performance, the latter thanks to three new biturbo direct injection engines: a V8 delivering 550hp in the Turbo, a V6 producing 440hp for the 4S, and a 422hp V8 diesel in the 4S Diesel. All can be coupled to permanent all-wheel drive and a new eight-speed dual clutch transmission. Inside the cabin you’ll find a slew of assistance systems — some optional — which include a night vision that detects people and animals with a thermal camera as well as LED matrix headlights that shine light on people beyond the normal range. Other interior niceties include a panoramic tilt roof, massage seats, and a 3D Burmester sound system. The outside has also been reworked to boast a sleeker and longer silhouette along with a longer wheelbase and faster roofline. Punch it and the fastest one will hit 62 mph in 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 190 mph, with a concealed spoiler that splits and extends out from above the trunk.
