Both models are driven by a newly developed 3.0-litre V6 engine with twin- turbochargers. Engine power is transmitted by Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). In the new Panamera 4S, it is distributed to all four wheels via the all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
Bi-Xenon headlights, including daytime running lights with four integral LED spotlights, are fitted as standard on all models. The same applies to Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) – an electronic damping control system – and the Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM).
From the outside, the new Panamera S models are recognisable by the silvercoloured brake calipers, 18-inch Panamera S wheels and the round twin tailpipes of the exhaust system.
In the interior, the rev counter dial face in Silver Grey is another hallmark. Automatic climate control and heated front seats are fitted as standard to provide excellent comfort. The partial leather interior is also standard. The seat squab surfaces, inner backrest surfaces and the inner side bolsters are all upholstered in embossed leather.
