When we style a sports car, we could focus on the here and now and follow the latest fashion. That would be fine until the next season arrives. But, how exactly do you create something that not only appeals today but also captivates tomorrow? We believe it’s achieved by focusing on principles, by preserving the tried and tested and using this as the platform for new ideas.
With the Panamera models, the proportions and use of form are typical of any Porsche. The wings are higher than the bonnet and they add muscle at the rear.
The roof line tapers down to the rear. Another typical Porsche characteristic is the evolution of the design. It’s more precise. Sharper. Edgier.
Visible examples include the enlarged air intakes in the front end. These help to provide optimum cooling of the engine and brakes. The fact that they also look great is a welcome bonus.
The rear end contouring is sharper. The rear screen larger, flatter and wider – as is the automatically deploying spoiler. The LED taillights have become narrower and more crisply defined. Seen from the rear, the new Panamera models look more modern and boast tauter proportions.
Another illuminating example of the further development of the Panamera design is the headlights. The Panamera Turbo has LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) as standard, while Bi-Xenon main headlights are standard in the other models. The daytime running lights are integrated into the main headlight units in the form of four LED spotlights.
Together with the more distinctive powerdome on the bonnet, the sideskirts and exterior mirrors, they lend the Panamera models a more sporty look.
Traditional values and a forward-looking design make a successful combination. All that’s missing is your own interpretation of the Panamera. With 17 exterior colours, an extensive range of leather packages, wheels measuring up to 20 inches and many more options, you can lend your model an unmistakable character.
