With the new Panamera 4S Executive and the new Panamera Turbo Executive, you can have the best of both worlds: you could go for a sporty spin in the driver’s seat and concentrate on finishing your work in the comfort of the rear. Not at the same time, obviously, but certainly in the same car, thanks to an extra 5.9 inches added to the length of the body. The additional space benefits the rear passengers the most, particularly on long journeys. Here, you can do something that we would ordinarily never recommend: close your eyes during the journey.

2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive.

It is not without reason that we styled the Panamera Executive models with the emphasis on comfort. The extended standard specification includes a leather interior, ParkAssist (front and rear), an electric slide/tilt glass sunroof, four-zone automatic climate control, soft close doors and much more.

The features in the rear compartment are particularly exquisite: 8-way power seats with seat heating and seat ventilation, a large center console and electric roll-up sunblinds on the rear side windows and behind the seats. Thanks to the interior lighting package for the rear compartment, you can decide at any time – night and day – when you want to work or relax.

With the new Panamera Executive models, Porsche has extended the sports car feel. A comprehensive range of additional personalization options, such as folding tables for the rear compartment or the Sport Chrono Package, lets you choose exactly how far you want to go – whether it’s towards comfort or sport. Or both.

Performance
Its refined 4.8-liter twin-turbo V8 engine generates 520 hp at 6000 rpm and torque of 516 lb.-ft. between 2250 and 4500 rpm. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.0 seconds and achieves a top track speed of 189 mph. A special feature is the overboost function of the Sport Chrono Package. Under acceleration at full throttle, boost pressure is temporarily increased by up to 10 % – for an even higher torque of 568 lb.-ft. Drive force is transmitted by Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) and the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).

The adaptive air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) offers a choice of uncompromising sporty performance or even more comfort – at the push of a button.

What else sets the new Panamera Turbo Executive apart? The extending four-way rear spoiler, certainly, but also the dual twin-tube tailpipes in a Turbo-specific design, 19-inch Panamera Design II wheels and the red brake calipers of the Turbo brake system.

That’s the ‘Turbo’ principle covered. Let’s move on to the ‘Executive’ principle. To the comprehensive standard specification with electric slide/tilt glass sunroof and thermally and noise insulated glass. To the soft close doors and ParkAssist (front and rear). It goes without saying that four-zone automatic climate control is also integrated as standard. All four individual seats are designed as power seats (14-way in the front, 8-way in the rear) and come equipped with seat heating and ventilation. The interior aspires to high standards, and these are fulfilled not least by the memory package for the 14-way power seats in the front and, in the rear, by the large center console.

Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
Porsche Traction Management (PTM) comprises an active all-wheel drive with electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, with automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR).

The electronically controlled multi-plate clutch regulates the distribution of drive force between the permanently driven rear axle and the front axle. Through continuous monitoring of the driving conditions, the electronics are able to respond to a variety of situations. Sensors check, among other variables, the rotation speeds of all four wheels, longitudinal and lateral acceleration of the vehicle, and the steering angle. If, for example, the rear wheels spin under acceleration, a greater proportion of drive force is redirected to the front by a more powerful engagement of the multiplate clutch. In addition, ASR reduces wheel slip. In corners, the drive force sent to the front wheels is regulated for optimum lateral stability.

In this way, PTM, in conjunction with the upgraded version of Porsche Stability Management (PSM) ensures optimum force delivery in every driving situation and excellent acceleration power: whether on long straights, through tight corners, or on road surfaces with varying grip.

Direct Fuel Injection (DFI).
With millisecond precision, DFI injects fuel at up to 1,740 psi (120 bar) directly into the combustion chamber by means of electromagnetically actuated injection valves. DFI also improves the internal cooling of the combustion chamber by having the mixture prepared directly in the cylinder. The higher compression ratio helps to deliver more output at the same time as enhanced engine efficiency.

VarioCam Plus.
VarioCam Plus is a two-in-one engine concept for adjusting the intake and exhaust camshafts and switching the lift of the intake valves. The system differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum power.

Valve operation is then adapted automatically to prevailing conditions. This results in instant acceleration and extremely smooth running as well as extraordinary acceleration power with comparatively low fuel consumption.

Auto Start Stop Function.
The Auto Start Stop Function still works in the familiar way. As soon as you come to a halt and keep your foot on the brake pedal, the system will automatically stop the engine. This fuel-saving system restarts the engine the moment you release the brakes.

What’s new, however, is that the engine now switches off as you approach traffic lights. All audio and communication systems remain switched on and the climate control continues to maintain your selected temperature, despite the engine being switched off. The engine restarts automatically if the energy needs of the auxiliary equipment can no longer be met by the energy saved in the battery. In all models (except the Panamera S E-Hybrid), the Auto Start Stop Function can be activated and deactivated using a separate button.

Coasting.
The coasting function enables you to save even more fuel where the situation allows.* The engine is decoupled from the transmission to prevent deceleration caused by engine braking. The Panamera S E-Hybrid goes one step further and switches off the engine completely. In this way, optimum use is made of the vehicle’s momentum, allowing it to coast for longer distances. This achieves a noticeable reduction in fuel consumption with no impact on comfort or sporty performance. * Not for Panamera GTS.

Lightweight Exhaust System.
The exhaust system of the Panamera models is made from long-life stainless steel. The primary and main catalytic converters heat up rapidly and help to deliver effective emissions control. At high revs and under maximum engine load, the exhaust system of the Panamera Turbo opens flaps for increased throughput and an even more thunderous sound.

Sports Exhaust System.
Available as an option for the Panamera S, Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo is a sports exhaust system featuring uniquedesign exhaust tips. For an even more authentic sports car sound – at the push of a button.

The tailpipes of the Panamera GTS sports exhaust system have a matte black painted finish as standard. At the touch of a button or when SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode is enabled, the sports exhaust system provides that characteristic motorsport sound – another unmistakable expression of the individuality of the Panamera GTS.

Sport button.
The SPORT button, which is fitted as standard, enables you to select a setup that favors either comfort or sporty performance. At the push of a button, the electronic engine management system switches the engine mapping to offer a sharper response and engine dynamics that are more direct.

With the gearbox in automatic mode, upshifts take place at higher engine speeds and downshifts are swifter. In addition, Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) also switch to SPORT mode to deliver harder damping and more direct steering and, therefore, even more agile cornering.

Sport Chrono Package.
The Sport Chrono Package helps to provide an even sportier setup. Included in the package are a digital and analog stopwatch, the SPORT PLUS button, the longitudinal and lateral acceleration display and a performance display in PCM for displaying lap times.

The SPORT PLUS button on the center console is used to activate SPORT PLUS mode. The engine becomes even more responsive. The rev-limiter is adjusted to a harder setting (except in the Panamera S E-Hybrid). Vehicles with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) switch to SPORT PLUS mode for harder damping and more direct steering. Models with adaptive air suspension drop to ‘low level’ and switch to a stiffer spring rate. In SPORT PLUS mode, the trigger threshold for PSM is raised for increased longitudinal and lateral dynamics.

The stopwatch mounted on the dashboard displays recorded driving time or can be used as a conventional clock. Porsche Communication Management (PCM) has a special performance display to view, store and evaluate lap times or other driving times.

When combined with PDK, the Sport Chrono Package has two additional functions: the shift times in SPORT PLUS mode become even shorter, the gear changes even sportier. The second function is Launch Control, designed to produce optimum acceleration from a standing start.

For the Panamera Turbo, increased power output is a matter of principle. In this model, the Sport Chrono Package takes performance to another level with the overboost function. Whenever you accelerate at full throttle in SPORT or SPORT PLUS mode, boost pressure will be temporarily increased by up to 10 %. This significantly increases the maximum torque, delivers a short-term complacent 516 to 567 lb.-ft.– and puts a smile on the driver’s face.

Standard in Panamera GTS, optional for the other Panamera models and only in conjunction with Porsche Communication Management (PCM).

The interior aspires to high standards, and these are fulfilled not least by the memory package for the 14-way power seats in the front and, in the rear, by the large center console. Folding tables are available as an option.

Exterior design.
The extended wheelbase of the new Panamera Executive models is intended above all to benefit the passengers who sit in the rear compartment. The stretched silhouette emphasises the elegance, yet maintains the sporty nature.

What else distinguishes the new Panamera Executive models? Everything that sets the new Panamera models with regular wheelbase apart from the average sedan. A design that is even sharper and more precise, as exemplified by the recognizable large air intakes. The prominent powerdome on the hood, the distinctly contoured sideskirts and exterior mirrors and the tight and sporty rear end lend the new Panamera Executive models a tauter appearance.

At the front, Bi-Xenon(TM) headlights, each with four integral LED daytime running spotlights, offer excellent visibility and reinforce the sporty look. You can make your Executive model seem even more imposing with optional LED high beam headlights. Resembling the daytime driving lights in color, they provide optimum illumination of the road.

There’s just one that’s missing: your very own personal interpretation of the Panamera Executive. With 15 exterior colors, wheels up to 20 inches in size and many more options from our extensive list, you can ensure that your Panamera model has its own unmistakable character.

Interior design.
At this point, we would normally be devoting our attention to the driver and describing a sports car ergonomics concept designed entirely around the cockpit. But it can be just as much fun in a Porsche to hand over the steering wheel and let someone else do the driving for a change. In the rear compartment particularly, the new Panamera Executive models afford their passengers plenty of freedom. In every respect.

The extra 5.9 inches added to the length of the Executive models has above all provided noticeably more legroom at the rear seats. These are 8-way power seats and now recline even further, enabling you to find the ideal sitting position. Thanks to seat heating and ventilation, you can concentrate on your work – or simply enjoy the journey. Other luxury features include comfort headrests, electric backrest adjustment, seat cushion length adjustment, lumbar support – and the ability to adjust the front passenger seat from the rear.

A large center console for the rear compartment – and for increased storage space – is fitted as standard. The 120-volt socket, an additional 12-volt socket and preparation for a cooling compartment also belong to the standard specification. The Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment with two display consoles, two multimedia players and two wireless infrared headphones.

Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK).
Offering both a manual gearshift and an automatic mode, 7-speed PDK promises to deliver sports performance with efficiency and comfort as well as rapid gear changes with no discernible interruption in the flow of power.

PDK is essentially two gearboxes in one. The double clutch provides an alternating, friction-locked connection between these two half gearboxes and the engine. Gears 1 to 6 have a sports ratio and top speed is reached in 6th gear. The 7th gear has a long ratio, which helps to keep the engine revs low, even at high speeds. Depending on the gearshift program (SPORT button activated or deactivated), the gear change is optimized for comfort or sporty driving.

For the Panamera GTS, we’ve made PDK even sportier. The gearshift programs (Normal, SPORT or SPORT PLUS) configure the gear changes to be sporty to extremely sporty. During an upshift, for example, selected engine cylinders are deactivated temporarily, which enables the speed of the engine to be synchronized with the speed of the transmission more quickly. This results in even faster shift times accompanied by a characteristic motorsport engine sound.

Steering and Power steering Plus.
The steering system with its variable steering ratio is precise and direct. When traveling straightahead such as on a highway, the ratio is less direct with no loss of agility or feedback from the road. When the steering wheel is turned further, the steering ratio becomes more direct, allowing easier cornering and parking. For even greater driving comfort, speed-sensitive Power steering Plus is available as an option. At high speeds, the firmer steering ratio enables precision steering manuevers; at low speeds, the ratio automatically adjusts to facilitate parking.

Power steering Plus is standard in the Panamera S E-Hybrid and optional for all other Panamera models.

Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM).
PASM is an electronic damping control system and it actively and continuously adjusts the damping force on each wheel based on road conditions and driving style. This reduces body movement and therefore increases comfort in all four seats.

How does PASM work? By means of a button on the center console, you can select one of the three modes: Comfort, SPORT or SPORT PLUS. Sensors record the body movements that accompany powerful acceleration, braking and rapid cornering or uneven road surfaces. The control unit evaluates the driving conditions and modifies the damping force on each of the wheels in accordance with the selected mode. You can feel the result: increased driving stability, more comfort and improved performance. Optional for the Panamera and Panamera 4, standard in all other models.

Adaptive air suspension.
Adaptive air suspension enhances both driving dynamics and comfort at the same time. It comprises a leveling system, a manual lift function, ride-height adjustment capability and the ability to vary the spring rate.

The purpose of the leveling system is to keep the vehicle level constant automatically, regardless of load distribution. For manuevering, the manual lift function enables you to raise the vehicle body by 20 mm to avoid the risk of grounding.

When you select the SPORT PLUS chassis program, the ride height drops to Low Level (– 25 mm, or – 15 mm in the Panamera GTS). At the same time, a harder spring rate is achieved through a reduction in the amount of air stored in the air suspension. In simple terms, it’s a sports chassis at the push of a button.

Standard for the Panamera S E-Hybrid, Panamera GTS and Panamera Turbo, optional for the other models.

PDCC including PTV Plus.
Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC) is an active anti-roll system that anticipates and reduces lateral body movement during cornering manoeuvres. In addition, it minimises the lateral instability of the vehicle on uneven ground.

PTV Plus – in combination with PDCC – enhances driving dynamics as well as stability. As a function of steering angle and steering speed, accelerator pedal position, yaw rate and vehicle speed, it is able to improve steering response and steering precision by specific braking of the right or left rear wheel.

What do PDCC and PTV Plus mean for you? Remarkable lateral stability and easier handling, excellent traction, and great agility at every speed with precise steering and stable load transfer characteristics. And even more fun in the corners.

Optional for the Panamera models (except Panamera S E-Hybrid).

Wheels and Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

The Panamera and Panamera 4 are fitted as standard with 18-inch Panamera wheels, the Panamera S, 4S and Panamera S E-Hybrid with 18-inch Panamera S wheels. The wheels on all models are lightweight alloys featuring a classic sporty design. Tire sizes 245/50 ZR 18 and 275/45 ZR 18 are fitted to the front and rear, respectively. The Panamera GTS and Panamera Turbo are equipped with 19-inch Panamera Turbo II wheels as standard. The tire sizes are 255/45 ZR 19 at the front, 285/40 ZR 19 at the rear. A range of optional 19- and 20-inch wheels is also available. All 19-inch wheels come with all seasons as standard. Summer tires are available as a no cost option.

Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) sends warnings to the on-board computer’s display screen in the event of excessive pressure loss. TPMS is standard in all Panamera models.

Porsche Stability Management (PSM).
PSM maintains stability even at the limits of dynamic driving performance. Sensors continuously monitor the direction, speed, yaw velocity and lateral acceleration of the car. PSM improves traction under acceleration on inconsistent road surfaces. When SPORT PLUS mode is selected on the Sport Chrono Package, the PSM intervention threshold is raised to give sporty drivers greater freedom to assert their own driving style.

Braking system.
The Panamera models have a braking system equipped with six-piston aluminum monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston units at the rear. The brake calipers on the Panamera and Panamera 4 are finished in black; on the Panamera S models, they are silver colored; on the Panamera S E-Hybrid they are Acid Green, and on the Panamera GTS and Panamera Turbo they are red.

The brake discs are slotted and internally vented for enhanced braking performance – even under extreme conditions – and rapid heat dispersal. The brake discs on the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS have a diameter of 390 mm at the front and 350 mm at the rear, whilst on the other Panamera models the discs are 360 mm in diameter at the front and 330 mm at the rear.

The electric parking brake, which you can activate and deactivate manually, releases automatically as you pull away. Thanks to the hold function, you can pull away without ever rolling back.

On request, your Panamera can be fitted with a braking system that has proven itself on the race track: the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brake (PCCB). The cross-drilled ceramic brake discs on the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS have a diameter of 410 mm at the front and 350 mm at the rear; the other models feature discs with a diameter of 390 and 350 mm at the front and rear, respectively.

PCCB is characterized by its low thermal expansion under heavy braking, which helps to prevent deformation. Furthermore, the ceramic brake discs are totally resistant to corrosion and offer better noise-damping properties.

The key advantage of PCCB is the extremely low weight of the brake discs, which are approximately 50 % lighter than standard discs of similar design and size. Although enhanced performance and fuel economy are very noticeable benefits: above all, it represents a major reduction in unsprung and rotating masses. That means better handling, better road holding and increased comfort, particularly on uneven roads.

Optional for the Panamera Turbo and Panamera GTS in conjunction with 20-inch wheels; for other Panamera models, only compatible with 19-inch wheels or larger.

Airbags and seat belt system.
All Panamera models are fitted as standard with full-size driver and front passenger airbags. Depending on the severity and type of accident, they are inflated in two stages. In less serious accidents, the airbags are only partially inflated, thereby minimizing discomfort to the occupants.

As well as knee airbags for driver and front passenger, the Porsche Side Impact Protection System (POSIP) is also fitted as standard.

This comprises side airbags in the front seats, curtain airbags along the entire roof frame and the side windows from the A-pillar to the C-pillar, and side impact protection elements in the doors. Side airbags in the rear compartment are available as standard. Also featured as standard are an energy absorbing steering column, three-point seat belts on all seats, belt height adjustment and seat belt force limiters in the front, and seat belt pretensioners front and rear. A rollover sensor automatically activates the curtain airbags and seat belt pretensioners if the vehicle threatens to overturn.

Anti-theft protection.
All Panamera models are protected by an immobilizer and an alarm system including ultrasonic interior surveillance. The system secures all four doors, the hood, the rear hatch, the passenger compartment, the ignition, the steering column.

Comfort.
At this point, we would normally be devoting our attention to the driver and describing a sports car ergonomics concept designed entirely around the cockpit. But it can be just as much fun in a Porsche to hand over the steering wheel and let someone else do the driving for a change. In the rear compartment particularly, the new Panamera Executive models afford their passengers plenty of freedom. In every respect.

The extra 5.9 inches added to the length of the Executive models has above all provided noticeably more legroom at the rear seats. These are eight-way power seats and now recline even further, enabling you to find the ideal sitting position. Thanks to seat heating and ventilation, you can concentrate on your work – or simply enjoy the journey. Other luxury features include comfort headrests, electric backrest adjustment, seat cushion length adjustment, lumbar support – and the ability to adjust the front passenger seat from the rear.

A large center console for the rear compartment – and for increased storage space – is fitted as standard. The 120-volt socket, an additional 12-volt socket and preparation for a cooling compartment also belong to the standard specification. Options for the rear include Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment with two display consoles, two multimedia players and two wireless infrared headphones.

An interior lighting package conceived specifically for the rear has been integrated as standard. Nearly all lights are powerful yet energy-efficient LEDs. It comprises two reading lights in the overhead console in the rear, lights in each footwell, additional orientation lighting in the rear, and illumination for the rear door storage compartments and rear center console storage compartment. The additional ambient lighting on the overhead consoles in the front and rear and the reading lights are dimmable.

Four-zone automatic climate control, with separate temperature controls for all four seats, is available as standard. Also standard is the dark-tinted thermally and noise insulated glass, which will maintain your privacy and protect the interior from the effects of strong sunlight. Just like the electric roll-up sunblinds in the rear compartment and on the rear side windows.

If ever you do prefer to take to the driver’s seat, there’s no reason why you should have to forgo the comfort – or the Porsche interpretation of comfort. The sporty cockpit offers excellent ergonomics thanks to the logical grouping of all the controls. Just as you would expect from a Porsche. * Available from 11/2013 at the earliest.

Front Seats.
The front seats with integrated headrests offer a high degree of comfort and hold your body firm during cornering, without restricting your freedom of movement. Seat adjustment is fully electric as standard with controls on both the driver and front passenger sides for seat height, cushion and backrest angle, and fore/aft position. A driver memory package, a standard option, enables the driver’s seat and exterior mirror positions to be saved and restored automatically.

Optional 14-way power seats with memory package (standard in the Panamera Turbo) for driver and front passenger offer even more functionality. In addition to featuring an electric steering column adjustment facility, the package includes electric four-way lumbar support, electric seat cushion length adjustment and personal memory settings for seat, steering wheel, PCM and mirror positions.

The courtesy lights (LEDs in the exterior mirrors) are a component of the driver memory package and 14-way power seats with memory package. Latch child seat mounting points are available as an option for the front passenger seat in conjunction with the deactivation function for the passenger airbag.

Adaptive Sport Seats.
The optional Adaptive Sports Seats have firmer – yet still comfortable – upholstery and provide even better lateral support thanks to the raised side bolsters on the seat cushion and backrest.

Featuring 18-way electric adjustment, the seats can be optimally adapted to meet your needs in terms of seat height, cushion and backrest angle, cushion length, fore/aft adjustment and four-way lumbar support. The steering column is also electrically adjustable. In addition, the side bolsters on the seat cushion and backrest are independently adjustable for added comfort over long distances or precision lateral support on winding roads. Also included is the personal memory for the driver and front passenger seats (including lumbar support), the steering wheel and the driver’s exterior mirror.

Rear Seats.
The rear compartment has two fully independent seats with plenty of leg- and headroom, even for taller passengers. They provide good lateral support, even during fast cornering, with no compromise on comfort. Between the seats is a folding armrest with a handy storage compartment. The backrests fold down individually with a ratio of 40:60 to increase storage capacity or to accommodate larger items. The split is 40:20:40 in conjunction with the optional ski bag. With the optional large center console, the backrests can still be folded separately while the console itself remains fixed in position.

Eight-way power seats are available as an option for the rear in any of the Panamera models. In addition to the electric backrest adjustment, seat cushion length adjustment and lumbar support functions, there is a facility to adjust the front passenger seat from the rear. When specified in conjunction with seat ventilation, the eight-way power seats (rear) feature automatic comfort headrests. In conjunction with the Adaptive Sport Seats in the front, Sport seats are also fitted in the rear and feature a sporty seam design and elevated side bolsters.

Latch child seat mounting points are fitted as standard on both rear seats in all Panamera models.

Seat Heating and Ventilation.
The front seats on all models feature seat heating as standard. This heats the seat cushion and backrest to a pleasant temperature. In the Panamera Turbo, the seats in the rear also have a heating function (optional for all other models).

On request, we can equip the front seats, and all four seats, with seat ventilation (only in conjunction with seat heating). A slipstream effect is produced by active ventilation of the perforated seat cushion and backrest and by passive aeration at the side bolsters. This evaporates perspiration moisture and therefore makes for a comfortable seating environment, even in hot weather. Seat heating and seat ventilation can be adjusted independently to any one of three power levels.

Steering wheels.
The multifunction steering wheel is standard in all models and available on request for the Panamera GTS at no extra cost. It features two ergonomic gearshift switches for manual gear selection and offers convenient control of audio, telephone and navigation functions as well as the on-board computer. In conjunction with PDK and the Sport Chrono Package, you will find an additional display above the airbag module for the SPORT and SPORT PLUS modes and the Launch Control function.

The SportDesign steering wheel with gearshift paddles is fitted as standard in the Panamera GTS and available as an option for all other models. It is distinguished by its striking dual-arm design. Upon request, it is possible to have the SportDesign steering wheel finished in black Alcantara(R).

Park Assist.
ParkAssist front and rear is standard in all Panamera models. With six front end sensors and four sensors in the rear end, the system audibly alerts the driver to the presence of obstacles detected behind the vehicle. An intermittent warning tone increases rapidly as the obstacle is approached. The audible alert is supplemented by a visual warning in the central display screen which provides a graphical representation of the vehicle’s proximity to obstacles.

Reversing Camera.
The optional reversing camera facilitates precise reverse parking and maneuvering. Help is provided in the form of the camera image and the dynamic, superimposed guidelines on the PCM screen, which illustrate the predicted course of the vehicle given the current position of the steering wheel.

Surround View.
The optionally available Surround View system supplements the reversing camera with three more high-resolution cameras – one in the front apron and one in each lower trim of the exterior mirrors. Based on the information supplied by all four cameras, the system generates a virtual bird’s eye view of the car and displays it on the PCM screen. This provides additional assistance to the driver when parking and manoeuvring because even low-level obstacles to the front and side of the vehicle can be detected. It is also possible to switch between various camera views to improve visibility, for example at narrow exits.

Cruise Control.
Cruise control is fitted as standard for added driver comfort on long stretches of road. Cruise control operates in the 18 to 149 mph speed range and is selected using a button on the steering column control stalk.

Adaptive Cruise Control including Porsche Active Safe (PAS).
Available as an option, this enhanced version of cruise control regulates the speed of your vehicle in line with the speed of the vehicle in front. A radar sensor inside in the front end scans the road ahead up to a distance of .12 miles. Imagine you’ve selected a cruising speed but have begun to gain on the vehicle in front because it is driving more slowly – the system reduces the speed of your vehicle by restricting throttle or gently applying the brakes until your chosen distance from the vehicle in front is maintained. For safety reasons, the driver should always be prepared to intervene manually if heavier braking is required. If the vehicle ahead slows further, adaptive cruise control will decelerate your Panamera accordingly – even down to a halt. As soon as the road ahead clears, your vehicle will accelerate back up to the cruising speed originally set. Selectable cruising speeds range from 30 to 210 km/h. To pull away after an automatic stop, simply press the control lever or depress the accelerator pedal. If desired, the driver can enable the integrated stop-and-go function, which automates stopping and pulling away in congested traffic.

Safety is further improved by Porsche Active Safe (PAS). If you are approaching the vehicle in front too quickly, you will be prompted to take the necessary action by an audible and visual warning as well as a jolt of the brakes. The system may also intervene with targeted braking applications and act to boost brake pressure as the situation demands, even to the point of the maximum braking force that the system is able to provide.

Lange Change Assist.
Optional Lane Change Assist uses radar sensors to monitor the areas to the rear of your vehicle and the blind spots on either side. Above a speed of 18 mph, the system issues a visual warning signal in the exterior mirrors whenever a vehicle rapidly approaches your vehicle from behind or enters one of your blind spots. This improves comfort and safety, particularly on motorways. However, LCA does not actively intervene to control the vehicle and can be deactivated at any time.

Lane Departure Warning.
A camera inside the rear-view mirror casing monitors the road surface in front of the vehicle. If enabled, the system will sound a warning tone whenever you steer towards a divider line marking and threaten to leave the current lane without indicating.

Lighting concept.
Standard in all new Panamera models: Bi-Xenon(TM) headlights featuring automatic and dynamic range adjustment, a headlight cleaning system and integral daytime running lights with four LED spotlights in each headlight. On the new Panamera GTS, the headlight units are finished in black.

The Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) is standard on all models except for the Panamera and Panamera 4.

Its dynamic cornering light function swivels the headlights towards the inside of the corner, based on the steering angle and driving speed. The static cornering lights activate the auxiliary headlights in order to illuminate more of the road at tight curves and turns. In addition, beam distribution is continuously adapted in line with driving speed and prevailing light conditions.

Automatic headlight activation is standard in all models and switches the lights on automatically when it gets dark. The lighting system also includes an automatic switch-off feature and the ‘Welcome Home’ function – a customizable delayed switch-off timer that keeps the daytime running lights and the taillights switched on until you reach your front door.

LED brake lights are fitted as standard and pulsate in the event of panic braking, thereby alerting following traffic more quickly to a critical situation.

LED High Beam Headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus).
A new development is available on request for every Panamera model: LED high beam headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus). The inner workings of each headlight comprise two light units in a stepped arrangement – a design feature that reinforces the imposing appearance of the new Panamera models.

The LED beam is remarkably powerful and provides excellent illumination of the road. Thanks to the optimum balance between short and long distance lighting with side illumination, the similarity in color with the daytime running lights and low light scatter, the driver’s eyes tire less quickly than with other systems.

The Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) has been combined with the LED high beam headlights. Not only does PDLS Plus offer all the functions of PDLS, it also features a dynamic main beam and an intersection assistant function.

The dynamic main beam is activated from a speed of 40 mph and detects vehicles driving in front as well as oncoming traffic. The intensity and range of the light cone can therefore be adapted to the prevailing situation.

With the intersection assistant function, intersections and T junctions are recognised based on the navigation data of PCM. For optimum illumination of intersections, the system automatically switches on the left and right cornering lights. At a T junction, only the static cornering light on the same side as the emerging traffic is switched on.

Entry & Drive.
Standard in the Panamera Turbo and available only in Premium Plus Package models: Porsche Entry & Drive – recognizable by the chrome surfaces on the door handles. Who needs a car key? As soon as you touch the door handle, Porsche Entry & Drive checks the encrypted access code on the key in your pocket. Once the key is validated, the door unlocks. The vehicle can then be started or switched off using the electronic ignition switch. To lock the vehicle, you simply press a button on the outside of the door handle. Porsche Entry & Drive then locks the vehicle and activates the engine immobilizer and steering column lock.

Luggage compartment.
The Panamera models offer 15.7 cu. ft. of luggage space (except the Panamera S E-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo). The Panamera S E- Hybrid provides you with 11.8 cu.ft. of luggage compartment capacity, and the Panamera Turbo 15.2 cu.ft. All models offer enough room for four suitcases from the Porsche Driver’s Selection range – color coordinated with the exterior color of your Panamera if you wish.

The power lift gate with customizable opening angle is fitted as standard to all models. It closes conveniently at the push of a button.

By no means a common feature in this vehicle class is the fully or split-folding rear seats. The cargo position offers 44.6 cu.ft.of space ( except in the Panamera S E-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo models). In conjunction with the BOSE® Surround Sound System or Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System, there are 44.1 cu.ft. – including the Panamera Turbo – and 40.7 cu.ft. in the Panamera S E-Hybrid. A ski bag is available as an option and, to accommodate it, the centre section between the rear seats folds separately. To protect from prying eyes, the luggage compartment can be covered with the removable roller cover which is provided as standard.

The fixed luggage compartment cover is available as an option. For extra protection for the luggage compartment, this cannot be removed until the rear hatch is opened. A roll-up sunblind offered as an option is compatible with either luggage cover. Controlled electrically, it can be raised behind the rear seats for extra privacy.

Additional Standard Equipment Executive.
An interior lighting package conceived specifically for the rear has been integrated as standard. Nearly all lights are powerful yet energy-efficient LEDs. It comprises two reading lights in the overhead console in the rear, lights in each footwell, additional orientation lighting in the rear, and illumination for the rear door storage compartments and rear centre console storage compartment. The additional ambient lighting on the overhead consoles in the front and rear and the reading lights are dimmable.

Four-zone automatic climate control, with separate temperature controls for all four seats, is available as standard. Also standard is the dark-tinted thermally and noise insulated glass, which will maintain your privacy and protect the interior from the effects of strong sunlight. Just like the electric roll-up sunblinds in the rear compartment and on the rear side windows.

Just like the electric roll-up sunblinds in the rear compartment and on the rear side windows. If ever you do prefer to take to the driver’s seat, there’s no reason why you should have to forgo the comfort – or the Porsche interpretation of comfort. The sporty cockpit offers excellent ergonomics thanks to the logical grouping of all the controls. Just as you would expect from a Porsche.

Porsche Communication Management (PCM).
Porsche Communication Management (PCM) is your control center for audio, navigation and communication functions. It is powerful and multifunctional, yet intuitive to use. The most important component is the 7-inch high-resolution touchscreen with graphical user interface. Alternatively, you can operate PCM using separate rotary pushbutton controls. The radio has an FM twin tuner, while the DVD audio drive plays CDs and audio DVDs and is MP3-compatible. A six-disc CD/DVD changer integrated in PCM is available as an option. The standard universal audio interface (USB) allows you to store and play up to 5,000 MP3 files on the 40 GB internal hard drive.

In conjunction with PCM, a total output of 235 watts is produced through a combination of 11 loudspeakers. In the Panamera Turbo, the BOSE® Surround Sound System is fitted as standard and features 14 loudspeakers delivering a total output of 585 watts. For an even greater sound experience, PCM can be combined with the optional Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System to offer over 1,000 watts produced by 16 direct-drive loudspeakers (not for the Panamera S E-Hybrid).

A navigation module with high-speed hard drive is included with PCM. For route guidance, it is possible to select between a 2D display and a 3D perspective. In some regions, even buildings can be shown in 3D, as can the terrain, the latter superimposed with a satellite map image. Split-screen mode enables you to view two functions at once, such as the current navigation map and list of symbols that represent your next driving instructions. The navigation module also features dynamic route guidance, in conjection with the optional Sirus XM satellite radio.

One key function of PCM in the Panamera S E-Hybrid is the graphical display of the hybrid drive system showing the flow of energy in the various modes, such as all-electric mode, e-boost, recuperation or coasting. Another display – ‘Hybrid Zero Emission’ – shows you the amount of time, as a proportion of the total driving time, that you have spent driving without the combustion engine.

Standard in the Panamera Turbo, optional for the other Panamera models.

Voice Control System.
Do you require navigation assistance, need to make a phone call or simply want to listen to the radio? Then why not just say so? The voice control system for PCM is at your command with support for word-by-word input. Voice control allows the cohesive input of destination addresses, phonebook entries or radio station names. You can also scroll through lists by voice control.

Electric Logbook.
An electronic logbook is available for PCM as an option. It automatically logs the mileage, route distance, date, time, starting location and destination for every journey. The software fulfils all statutory requirements for automatic logbooks as specified by the German revenue authorities.

HD Radio receiver.
This option provides access to all of your favorite FM stations plus a broad range of new digital programming.* HD radio also includes advanced audio and data features that enhance your listening experience.

Online Services.
Using the free-to-download Aha Radio app, you can use your smartphone to stream Internet radio, news feeds, podcasts and audiobooks directly to the PCM. Local information, such as hotel and restaurant listings, can be read aloud automatically thanks to text-to-speech functionality. Point of Interest searches with subsequent direct selection as your navigation destination are also supported. The online content is received by your smartphone and controlled by means of PCM.

Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment.
Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment is available as a factory-fitted option from Porsche Exclusive. The system comprises two display consoles, two multimedia players and two wireless infrared headphones. It is compatible with all popular media formats (e.g. CD, DVD, MP3) and features user-friendly touchscreens. It is also possible to connect two separate, individually selectable AV sources, such as a games console or digital camera. Each containing a swivelling 7-inch TFT screen, the screen consoles are finished in leather in the interior color and mounted on the front seat backrests.

Telephone module.
The quadband GSM telephone module is available as an option for PCM and offers convenience and excellent reception. With a SIM card inserted directly into PCM’s integral SIM card reader, calls can be made using either the hands-free facility or the cordless handset. Alternatively, the Bluetooth® capability of a mobile phone can be used to make calls through the SIM Access Profile (SAP). Once automatic pairing is complete, the mobile phone’s aerial is switched off to conserve battery charge and the phone operates via the car aerial.

Depending on the type of mobile phone, this gives access not only to the numbers on the SIM card, but also to the phone’s internal memory. Also depending on the phone, it can be controlled using PCM, the multifunction steering wheel or the voice control system without it ever leaving your pocket. In addition, the telephone module enables you to establish a Bluetooth® link with those mobile phones that only support the Handsfree Profile (HFP). In this case, the GSM connection is always established through the aerial of the mobile phone.

PCM acts as a hands-free system and you can leave the mobile phone tucked away.

To make a private call, despite having other passengers in the vehicle, the telephone module includes a cordless Bluetooth® handset, with display and keyboard located in the centre console. However, the handset cannot be used for Bluetooth® links established using the Handsfree Profile (HFP).

Mobile phone preparation.
A standard mobile phone preparation is available to enable a Bluetooth® connection for those mobile phones that only support the Handsfree Profile (HFP). This function also enables you to leave your mobile phone tucked away. The PCM can be used to control only the basic functions of the mobile phone and the GSM connection is established through the mobile phone’s antenna.

BOSE® Surround Sound-System.
The BOSE® Surround Sound System is compatible with Porsche Communication Management (PCM) as well as the CDR and CDR Plus audio systems. The system comprises 9 amplifier channels. Its 14 loudspeakers and 200-watt active subwoofer deliver a balanced acoustic pattern and transform your Panamera into a concert hall. Total output: 585 watts (Panamera S E-Hybrid: 160-watt active subwoofer, 545-watt total output).

In combination with PCM, the BOSE® Surround Sound System enables audio playback of DVDs. Of course, you can still play other audio sources such as CDs and MP3s. In stereo, or at the push of a button, in one of the virtual surround modes generated by BOSE® Centerpoint® 2. The patented AudioPilot® Noise Compensation Technology uses a microphone to continuously measure all the noises inside the vehicle and adapts music playback automatically so that a consistent sound is maintained – whatever the driving conditions and in real time.

The result is a balanced, faithfully reproduced sound and a captivating 360° acoustic experience delivered to all four seat positions.

Burmester® High-End Surround Sound-System.
The sound developed by our research center in Weissach is amplified by a sound from Berlin. We’re referring to Burmester®, one of the most respected manufacturers of high-end audio equipment worldwide, and the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System, which is available as an option in combination with the CDR audio system or PCM. The technologies behind the system are from the finest of the premium home audio systems that Burmester® has to offer, and it owes its eminence to countless details, and one goal: perfection in sound.

The system has 16 amplifier channels with a total output of more than 1,000 watts, 16 loudspeakers including an active subwoofer with 300-watt class D amplifier, a total diaphragm surface area of more than 2,400 cm², and a frequency response of 30 Hz to 20 kHz. Crossover technology has been carried over more or less unmodified from the home audio sector. Digital filters have been optimally defined for their installation location and finely tuned after extensive in-car audio testing. Ribbon tweeters have been used for unmistakably fine, clear and undistorted high-frequency sound reproduction with excellent level stability. All loudspeaker housings are perfectly matched and deliver superior bass foundation, definition and impulse accuracy. As yet unequalled, the result is a natural and richly textured spatial sound, even at top volume. The elegantly pure design with galvanized surrounds and Burmester® logos on selected loudspeakers make it clear that the appeal of the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System is as much about the visual as it is the audio. Sound and style without compromise.

Optional for all Panamera models except the Panamera S E-Hybrid.
