Launch of The New Panamera S in IndonesiaThrilling contradictions-Second Generation of The Porsche Panamera
Jakarta. PT Eurokars Artha Utama, the official Porsche importer in Indonesia, introduced the new Panamera S in Jakarta on September 4th, 2013. The second generation of the new Panamera model range offers an even broader range between sportiness and comfort.
Christoph Choi, General Manager of PT Eurokars Artha Utama, said: “The spatial concept of the Panamera, with two full-sized bucket seats in the rear seating area, proved to be so successful from its first introduction in 2009 that Porsche is further extending it in the new generation Gran Turismo, which is even more efficient and sporty. The second generation was premiered to the world in Shanghai earlier this year and received positive feedback, so I am very confident that the new Panamera will continue its success story here in Indonesia as well.”
About the new Porsche Panamera S
The Panamera S is powered by a 3-litre V6 biturbo engine that produces an output of 420 hp and it is equipped with seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). The Panamera S accelerates from zero to 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds and reaches a top speed of 287 km/h. Its NEDC fuel consumption is 8.7 l/100 km and its CO2 emission is 204 g/km.
The differentiated styling
The tighter and more prominent linework at the front end is especially apparent in the larger air intakes and the distinctive transition to the headlights. In side profile, the new, more sweptback windscreen creates a more extended silhouette. The side view of the new Panamera was also modified. For example, the side sills now have a clearly visible edge in the outer area. This edge is echoed in the mirror.
When viewed from the back, the new generation Panamera is primarily made out by its new boot lid. The widened rear windscreen emphasizes horizontal aspects of the Gran Turismo and therefore its sporty character. This effect, which gives the Panamera a visually lower stance on the road, is reinforced by integrating the license plate bracket lower in the bumper. The rear body section itself was also redesigned. It features a wider spoiler and a tighter transition to the rear lights, similar to the visual transition of the headlights at the front of the car.
The Panamera models are further upgraded by new standard features such as bi-xenon headlights, a multifunction steering wheel and an automatic power-lift boot lid. Further customisation is achieved by the many options that are offered, including the new LED headlights, which give the Gran Turismo a very special appearance. The LED headlights are paired with the intelligent Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus). The design of these head - lights is fundamentally different from the standard bi-xenon version: The running lights are produced directly by two LED units, one placed above the other, while the position lights and turn indicator lights were relocated to the front body. In addition, an extended line-up of assistance systems is available for safety and convenience.
More performance and efficiency by downsizing - New V6 biturbo engine
One of the core competencies of Porsche is boosting performance and efficiency. In developing the new Panamera, this competency led to an entirely new engine based on the downsizing concept: a V6 engine with three litres displacement and biturbo charging. The V6 biturbo replaces the previous 4.8-litre V8 engine in the Panamera S. Its basic parameters are themselves indicators of progress: 20 hp more power and 20 Newton metres more torque, but up to 18 percent better fuel economy compared to the V8 engine in the previous model. So, the driver not only gets a more powerful and efficient engine; turbocharging results in a maximum torque of 520 Newton metres over a very wide range of engine speeds for a superior and uniform performance curve, even at low revs.
