As you can see, we didn’t experiment with the car’s design. We stuck with our philosophy that form should follow function. Nothing else would have made sense. Nothing else would have produced a four-seater Porsche.
How can you tell whether it has the Porsche DNA? From the distinctive proportions and lines. The wings are slightly higher than the bonnet and, at the rear, they are distinctly muscular and form the typical Porsche shoulder line. The silhouette of the Panamera models is therefore typically Porsche. It is dynamic without being overbearing, and exudes elegance rather than extravagance. In its class, the total length of less than five metres is to its advantage.
The front, shoulders and rear all have instantly recognisable Porsche traits. Particularly striking are the side air outlets behind the front wheels – paying homage to the Carrera GT.
A low, wide stance. A sleek roofline. The overall impression leaves you in no doubt that these are true sportscar proportions. Typically Porsche.
The most striking aspect of the rear is undoubtedly the spoiler which is integrated into the rear lid. From a speed of around 90 km/h, it deploys automatically, as you may already have suspected. However, on the Panamera Turbo models, it doesn’t stop there. The spoiler splits in the middle and extensions deploy to the left and right, making it considerably wider to further reduce lift at the rear axle.
The wheels are of classic sportscar design: fine-spoked, lightweight, and stylish. Sizes range from 18 inches to 20 inches, and all the wheels provide a good glimpse of the brake system. Just another example of sporty styling.
The appearance of all models can be customised to your individual taste. The colour palette offers no fewer than 17 exterior colours. On request, you can opt to have your Panamera model finished in practically any colour of your choice. In addition, a wide range of personalisation options is available.
So you see, whichever way you look at it, it looks like a Porsche and, most importantly, it feels like one too.
