The body of the sports car is almost entirely made of “winged metal”: the Germans used boron and heat-strengthened steel only in critical places for passive safety. The new 2 generation Porsche Panamera model has the following overall dimensions, mm

  • Length – 5,049 (5,199 on the Executive version)
  • Width – 1 937
  • Height – 1 417 – 1 432
  • Wheelbase – 2 950 (3 100 on the Executive version)
  • Ground clearance (clearance) – 143

The models are equipped with a fuel tank with a volume of 75 to 90 liters. The curb weight of the car again depends on the specific specification: the lightest (basic) version weighs 1,860 kg, and the heaviest hybrid version weighs 2,350 kg.

In the Russian market, the new 2021 Porsche Panamera is offered with several motors to choose from, but they all work in tandem with the PDK eight-band robot. The most affordable version has a rear-wheel drive, and all the others have a full drive.

Porsche Panamera 4S E-Hybrid

  • The initial version of the Panamera Base is powered by a 2.9-liter V6 biturbo engine with 330 hp. (450 Nm). Such a car has rear-wheel drive and is capable of accelerating from zero to hundreds in 5.6 seconds, reaching speeds of up to 270 km / h.
  • Next comes the Panamera 4 variant, which has the same engine, but the drive is full here (as in all subsequent versions). Such a bundle of units provides the car with acceleration from 0-100 km / h in 5.3 seconds. and a top speed of 268 km / h.
  • The Panamera 4 Executive is an extended version of the liftback. The “filling” here is the same as on the original Panamera 4, but due to the increased dimensions of the car, it is somewhat slower: acceleration from 0-100 km / h is possible in 5.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is 267 km / h.
  • In the power plant of the hybrid Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, the company of the aforementioned internal combustion engine is an electric motor with 136 hp. (450 Nm). In total, the units develop 462 forces (700 Nm). Acceleration from 0-100 km / h is possible in 4.4 seconds (4.5 seconds for the extended Executive version), and the maximum speed reaches 280 km / h.

Vehicle overview

Salon Porsche Panamera 2021

The Porsche Panamera provides for a “racing” driving position, in which the driver’s back is almost vertical, the cushion is lowered as low as possible, and the legs are stretched forward almost at right angles to the body.

Not everyone will like this, although the front seats themselves are comfortable and cozy. These are not full-fledged “buckets”, but they have solid lateral support. Due to the low landing, visibility is poor. In addition, the car has very small side mirror housings, and the front pillars, on the contrary, are too massive.

Plus, at first, the abundance of gloss and touch panels confuses, and the control of some important functions (for example, ventilation deflectors) here is exclusively virtual. All these features have to get used to.

Despite the impressive “herd of horses”, the Porsche Panamera 2021 liftback in the new body is pleasantly controlled even in the city: the car has sensitive steering, which allows you to easily change from row to row.

The suspension settings are also pleasantly surprising – you expect “sporty” rigidity from such a powerful four-door car, but road flaws and “speed bumps” sometimes pass even softer than some crossovers and SUVs.

However, the German liftback performs best on intercity routes. With high-speed overtaking, the car does not have any problems, and it is controlled just excellently, delighting the driver with the most accurate steering responses and excellent grip in corners.
