Maximum performance is never an empty phrase at Porsche. An example of this is the powerful heart of the new Panamera Turbo S: the 4.8-litre V8-cylinder twin turbo engine.
Of lightweight construction, it is based on the engine of the Panamera Turbo. Due to its increased performance, it uses a reinforced crank drive and special alloy forged pistons. Stronger piston spray nozzles provide increased cooling for the piston heads. The maximum injection pressure of the direct fuel injection (DFI) has been increased by 20 bar to 140 bar, for even better mixture control, whilst the throttle response has been optimised for a more spontaneous engine response. The integrated dry sump lubrication ensures a reliable supply of oil even when driving in a very sporty style.
The two turbochargers arranged in parallel connection have a larger, more powerful compressor in the Panamera Turbo S. Two intercoolers right and left in the front apron moulding – one for each cylinder bank and turbocharger – are responsible for cooling the air compressed by the chargers.
As a result, the engine of the Panamera Turbo S achieves 419 kW (570 hp) at 6,000 rpm. The torque of 750 Nm starts at between 2,250 and 5,000 rpm. Whenever you accelerate at full throttle in SPORT PLUS mode, boost pressure is temporarily increased by up to 10% thanks to the overboost function. This results in a significant increase in the maximum torque to up to 800 Nm.
Power which the Panamera Turbo S uses to sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 3.8 seconds and from 0 to 124 mph in 12.8 seconds. Its maximum speed is 192 mph. These are fascinating figures – not just for a saloon car.
A sports exhaust system featuring round dual-tube tailpipes in stainless steel is available as an option. You can select even more sporty sounds via a button on the centre console or by activating SPORT PLUS mode.
