Targeted changes have been made to the design to further sharpen the unique character of the Panamera. With the exception of the Turbo S, all new models now feature the Sport Design front end familiar from the predecessor. The new front end is characterised by a more distinctive air intake grille in Black and larger side air intakes with adapted single-bar front light layout.
The Panamera GTS features an enhanced Sport Design package as standard. Distinctive, grained air intakes in Satin Gloss Black and C blades in the exterior colour accentuate the car’s individual look. The Sport Design side sills also in Satin Gloss Black reflect the sporty and elegant design language of the GTS.
The front view of the newly developed Panamera Turbo S underlines the fact that this is an exceptionally sporty derivative with a striking and unique front end. The front is distinguished by larger side air intakes as well as newly designed elements painted in the exterior colour which are connected horizontally to make the car seem wider. The light modules of the new, dual Turbo front lights have now been positioned further apart than before.
The continuous light strip at the rear has also been redesigned: it now runs seamlessly over the luggage compartment lid and harmoniously links the two newly designed LED tail light clusters to create a single element. The adapted contour lines also lead to a more dynamic lighting look. Model-specific exhaust systems are harmoniously integrated into the newly designed rear apron with striking diffuser fins and round it off towards the bottom with a sporty character.
As standard, the Panamera GTS features the new darkened Exclusive Design tail light clusters with dynamic Coming Home/Leaving Home function. The rear is also distinguished by its Sport Design rear apron in Satin Gloss Black with diffuser panel in exterior colour. The sports exhaust system including two twin tailpipes in High Gloss Black underlines the sporty appearance.
Two metallic colours have been changed within the large paintwork range available for the Panamera: Burgundy Red Metallic and Ristretto Brown Metallic have been replaced with Cherry Metallic and Truffle Brown Metallic respectively. The personalisation options available for the exterior include the new Carbon Sport Design package. The Carbon look is used for the C blades, air outlet trims and rear diffuser panel. As a distinctive contrast, the front air intakes are painted in High Gloss Black and the spoiler lip and side sills are finished in the exterior colour.
The also new Exclusive Design tail light clusters are differentiated by a light strip and brake lights without red components, as well as the specific design of the lateral fins. Instead of the familiar “hockey stick” lines, switch on/off animation for the turn signals now features an elegant dot design. The Coming Home/Leaving Home function additionally activates the entire tail light module upon locking and unlocking the vehicle.
A total of 10 wheel designs are now available with the new 20-inch wheel and two new 21-inch wheels. These include the Exclusive Design 21-inch alloy wheels with bright-polished areas, painted rim bases and wheel hub covers with coloured Porsche Crest.
New steering wheel generation in elegant, sporty interior
The predecessor’s innovative vehicle interior forms the basis for new Panamera models. It is characterised by a timeless, sporty and elegant ambience featuring high-grade materials. In keeping with the Porsche design DNA, modern infotainment and connectivity services are harmoniously integrated. New multifunction steering wheels are now used with immediate effect. Their visual cut-outs are reminiscent of the lightweight steering wheels used in motorsports. Multifunction operating elements are cleverly integrated into the steering wheel design.
The Panamera models and Panamera 4S E-Hybrid feature as standard the new sports steering wheel with shift paddles and steering wheel rim finished in smooth leather. The even sportier GT sports steering wheel is part of the Panamera Turbo S standard equipment. The GTS includes the GT sports steering wheel with black Alcantara® steering wheel rim and steering wheel heating ex works. The different GT sports steering wheel variants are optionally available for all other models. They can be enhanced with the new carbon steering wheel trim on request.
The Sport Chrono package can be further extended by an exclusive clock from Porsche Design. The high-grade, analogue Porsche Design clock in the dashboard boasts a genuine, radially polished metal face, ceramic indices and hands featuring white Superluminova® coating. Thanks to the specially developed incident light technology it shows the time in the style of a top-quality chronometer and even remains easily legible in poor lighting conditions or in the dark. A Porsche Design Sport Chrono watch collection is additionally available to order featuring COSC-certified calibers that were developed in house. The new line, which includes one chronograph and three “three-hand models” with a smaller face showing seconds, combines traditional design characteristics, materials and performance properties from sports car engineering to transfer the Porsche feeling to the wrist.
The Panamera Turbo S comes as standard with a high-quality leather interior. The GTS comes fitted with a leather interior and the GTS Alcantara® package in Black ex works. The optional interior packages have been adapted to suit the new Panamera: for the wood trims, the Beech Anthracite package has been replaced with the slightly lighter Abachi Anthracite. The modified Paldao trim is now called Paldao Grey; the natural monochrome colour spectrum has an elegant contemporary look. The dashboard, front and rear doors and the centre console now have high-quality wooden trim elements in this interior package.
