There’s a new Porsche in town and it’s called the Panamera Turbo – a vehicle that can put out 550 hp and can go from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds.
PGA Cars, the exclusive distributor of Porsche vehicles in the country, said the Panamera Turbo is integrated with a “more sportscar-like profile than before.” With that in mind, you might even say that the Panamera Turbo looks like a grown-up Porsche 911. That statement holds true as seen on the vehicle’s large air intakes, blacked-out LED headlights, and sloping roofline.
The rear, on the other hand, gets dual exhaust pipes, wraparound LED taillights, and a large bumper. The Panamera Turbo also comes with an adaptive rear spoiler that opens automatically once the vehicle hits 100 km/h.
Inside, the dashboard of the Panamera Turbo features touch-sensitive controls, which replaces traditional buttons. It also has a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with navigation and Apple CarPlay capability. Interior comfort is not compromised with the Panamera Turbo’s 14-way power front seats and 2-zone automatic climate control. Moreover, it can satisfy your urge for good quality music thanks to its BOSE surround sound system with 14 speakers including subwoofer.
The 2017 Panamera Turbo is powered by a 4.0-liter V8 gasoline engine that delivers 550 hp and 770 Nm of torque. It is mated to an 8-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission and power is transferred to all 4 wheels. Porsche claims it can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds before reaching a max speed of 306 km/h.
