The Panamera and Panamera 4 models are equipped with an efficient and lightweight 3.6-litre naturally aspirated V6 engine based on the V8 power unit. A balance shaft reduces vibration to ensure very smooth operation. Direct fuel injection (DFI), VarioCam Plus and integral dry-sump lubrication are standard features. The engine delivers 220 kW (300 hp) at 6,200 rpm. Maximum torque of 400 Nm is achieved at 3,750 rpm.
This impressive power output enables the rear-wheel drive Panamera with manual gearbox to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in only 6.8 seconds, with a top speed of 261 km/h. With the optional Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), these figures are an even more impressive 6.3 seconds and 259 km/h. Thanks to PDK and the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM), the Panamera 4 completes the sprint in 6.1 seconds and has a top speed of 257 km/h.
