Four adults, luggage for four, one sportscar. It really does work.
The luggage compartments in the Panamera models have a capacity of 432 litres. The Panamera S Hybrid has a luggage compartment capacity of 335 litres, or 317 litres* if the optional BOSE® Surround Sound System is installed. Ample space, for example, for four suitcases from the Driver’s Selection by Porsche Design range – colour coordinated with the vehicle’s exterior colour if you wish. What makes the storage space special is that the four suitcases can be stowed in such a way that you can remove whichever one you choose with ease – no reshuffling required.
They can then be concealed using the retractable luggage compartment cover (fitted as standard) or the optional removable luggage compartment cover. The key to this solution is the extraordinary height of the luggage compartment achieved through the special geometry of the rear lid and the large rear screen. The wide opening angle of the rear lid facilitates convenient loading.
A rarely encountered feature in this vehicle class is the fully or split-folding rear seats. In the cargo position, the available luggage capacity in the Panamera models increases to 1,250 litres. The Panamera S Hybrid has a capacity of 1,153 litres, or 1,135 litres* if the BOSE® Surround Sound System is installed.
A ski bag is available as an option and, to accommodate it, the centre section between the rear seats folds separately.
The contents of the luggage compartment can be concealed using the detachable retractable luggage compartment cover provided as standard.
For extra protection, you could select the optional removable luggage compartment cover, which lifts up when the rear lid is opened, at which point it can be taken out.
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.
The rear lid is made of lightweight aluminium. It unlocks in response to the remote control or the button on the handle. Top-hinged, it features a wide opening for comfortable loading and an electric soft closing function facilitates closing.
An automatic rear lid with customisable opening angle is fitted as standard. It closes automatically when the button on the rear lid itself is pressed and opens in response to the dedicated button on the key remote and in the interior.
* On the Panamera S Hybrid, the subwoofer of the BOSE® Surround Sound System is located below the loading edge and consequently reduces the luggage compartment capacity.
