Porsche has launched a new variant of the Panamera in India. The Panamera Turbo S is powered by a 4.8 liter, V8 bi-turbo motor which features titanium aluminium turbine wheels and modified engine control managemen to produce 550hp of power and 750Nm of torque. The Panamera Turbo S also has overboost which gives 800Nm of torque when activated. The Porsche Panamera Turbo S accelerates from 0 – 100 kmph in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 306kmph. The Panamera Turbo S will set you back by Rs. 2.65 crore (ex-showroom, Delhi) but that is the fastest way you can travel with 4 on board in our country.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S features several key driving dynamics control systems such as Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), an active roll stabilisation system, boosts cornering stability and thus enhances both driving dynamics and comfort in equal measure. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) applies a variable torque split to the rear wheels which, in combination with an electronically controlled rear limited slip differential, ensures superior traction and therefore greater agility in every driving situation. The Sport Chrono Package Turbo, which tunes the suspension settings and engine controls, makes the car even more sporting when the additional “Sport Plus” button is pressed. Completing the dynamic enhancements is a sports exhaust system that delivers a particularly emotive engine sound.
