Panamera and Panamera 4 will also be there with a V6 single-turbo engine delivering 330 horsepower.
Just like the first generation, the all-new Porsche Panamera is spawning a more spacious version with an extended wheelbase granting additional legroom for passengers sitting in the back. While the standard 2017 Panamera measures 2,950 mm between the two axles, which is already 30 mm more than the old regular model, the Executive version adds an extra 150 mm for a grand total of 3,100 mm. It’s the same amount of stretch received by the previous Executive model and makes the car even more luxurious on the inside.
Speaking of the cabin, the Executive version has an optional bigger rear center console with two built-in folding tables, or you can spend even more and get the rear seat entertainment system. It adds dual 10.1-inch tablets integrated in the front seats’ backrests, which can be detached in order to be used outside the car.
As you would imagine, the plushier Executive comes with a plethora of standard equipment, including a massive panoramic roof, heated front and rear seats with electrical adjustment, and roll-up sunblind behind the rear seats. For a silky smooth ride, the long-wheelbase Panamera gets an adaptive air suspension featuring an electronically-controlled damper system to soak up the road bumps and allow those inside the cabin to enjoy a super comfortable journey.
Buyers will be able to tick the “Executive” box for the Panamera 4, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, Panamera 4S Executive, and also for the beefy Panamera Turbo. Go for the 4S or the Turbo and the standard equipment list will be extended to include soft-close doors and rear-axle steering. There’s even more kit for the range-topping Turbo as it also receives full-LED adaptive headlights, LED ambient lighting, and four-zone climate control.
Since we’ve mentioned the Panamera 4, it’s a new addition to the range with a turbocharged V6 engine developing 330 horsepower (243 kilowatts) delivered to both axles. The “completely redeveloped” entry-level engine can also be had in the standard rear-wheel-drive Panamera, and in both cases it adds an extra 20 hp (15 kW) over its predecessor while slashing fuel consumption by 1 liter / 100 km.
Porsche will have the longer Panamera and the new single-turbo V6 models on display later this month at the Los Angeles Auto Show. In total, the second generation already has 10 different models and a new member of the family will be added in 2017 with the arrival of a wagon.
