Intelligent lightweight construction has been integral to the Porsche identity since the very beginning. For both economical and ecological reasons. This forms the basis for low fuel consumption values in conjunction with outstanding performance.
It is economical thanks to the high proportion of aluminium, plastics and super-high-strength sheet steel used. This is substantially more stable and lighter than conventional steel. It is also ecological because all materials used are meticulously selected. We use only innovative and environmentally friendly components. All lightweight materials are easily recyclable and each material is labelled to facilitate its separation for recycling. The reduction in the number of plastic variants helps to ensure more efficient recycling. Recycled plastics are used where they meet our exacting technical requirements. As a result, the Panamera models are around 95% recoverable.
