Porsche unveils new Panamera Turbo S
Wednesday 30 March 2011
Porsche has released details on its new high-power Panamera sedan, set to go on sale this summer.
The new Panamera Turbo S provides a power boost to the Panamera Turbo's engines, delivering 37 kW more with increased torque from the 4.8 liter, V8 engine, which has been treated to improved turbochargers and modified engine control.
Using the Launch Control feature, it can manage 0-100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and a top speed of 306 km/h, despite a fuel consumption similar to that of the Panamera Turbo - 11.3 l/100km using Michelin tires.
Other features added include Dynamic Chassis Control to stabilize the vehicle and Torque Vectoring Plus, which applies a variable torque split to the rear wheel to improve traction and agility in variable driving situations.
It is priced at $173,200 in the US and €167,076 in Germany.
The model is set to be on show at the New York International Auto Show this April, which is also set to see a slew of debuts from Mercedes-Benz, along with new models from Suzuki and Lexus.
