Soon after the launch of the revamped 718 Cayman, Porsche has announced its next offering for clients globally. The Porsche Panamera 2017 is expected to be rolled out in the first quarter of 2017. If the insights are something to go by, the car will have a lot of new features and accessories and its resemblance to the other Porsches is minimal. The car will be offered in S and Turbo trims.
The highlights of this car are mostly inside the cockpit. At the heart of the dashboard is a 12.3-inch screen that helps control the infotainment and a Next Gen Communication system. The screen can be customized and configured as per your requirements. There are a number of apps pre-loaded and these include Google Earth, Street View etc. You can easily get pin point location of your vehicle with the Vehicle Tracking System. The traditional tachometer is flanked by two 7-inch screens.
An amazing feature of the Porsche Panamera 2017 is the InnoDrive technology. Once in use, the technology predetermines the driving style suitable for the road ahead. The system will figure out the best speed and efficiency balancing them with the overall drive experience.
The rear steer system is pretty amazing as well. At speeds below 50 kmph you can steer the rear wheels in opposite direction of the front wheels. This gives you tighter turning options thus enabling you to park or navigate with a lot more ease.
While, the cockpit has a lot of highlights, some of the big change factors lie under the hood. The powerful twin Turbo V8 engine offers great power and with the 8-speed-dual clutch you get a broader spread of ratios. To add to the speed, Porsche Panamera 2017 has a better suspension system enabling you to enjoy a smooth drive even on roads that are not so ideal.
Overall, the vehicle drives beautifully and while it gives you the feel of a luxury sedan, it also offers you technology assistance like no other. The car offers some of the best auto-technologies put together in a design that is aesthetically appealing and at the same time also offers a lot of driving comfort to the passengers.
MSRP: Panamera 4S priced at $99,990 and the Turbo starting at $146,900.
