Porsche Traction Management (PTM) comprises an active all-wheel drive with an electronic and map-controlled multi-plate clutch, automatic brake differential (ABD) and anti-slip regulation (ASR).
Direct Fuel Injection (DFI). With millisecond precision, DFI injects fuel up to 1,740 psi (120 bar) directly into the combustion chamber. The DFI improves the internal cooling of the combustion chamber while a higher compression ratio helps to deliver more output at the same time as enhanced engine efficiency.
Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK). Offering both a manual gearshift and an automatic mode, 7-speed PDK delivers sports performance with efficiency and comfort.
VarioCam Plus. A two-in-one engine concept, VarioCam Plus adjusts the intake and exhaust camshafts and switches the lift of the intake valves. The system differentiates between driver inputs that typify normal, everyday driving and those inputs that demand maximum power. This results in extremely smooth running as well as extraordinary acceleration power with comparatively low fuel consumption.
Auto Start Stop Function. With the Auto Start Stop Function the engine now switches off as you approach traffic lights. All audio and communication systems remain switched on and the climate control continues to maintain your selected temperature. The engine restarts automatically if the energy needs of the auxiliary equipment can’t be met by energy saved in the battery.
Lightweight Exhaust System. The exhaust system is made from long-life stainless steel. The primary and main catalytic converters heat up rapidly and help to deliver effective emissions control.
Sports Exhaust System. Available as an option for the Panamera 4S, the sports exhaust system features unique design exhaust tips and an even more authentic sports car sound – at the push of a button.
SPORT Button and Sport Chrono Package. The SPORT Button enables you to select a setup that favors comfort or sporty performance.
Interior Design. The new Panamera 4S has an exquisite, clearly structured interior that offers a high degree of comfort. In the rear, even taller passengers will find plenty of head and legroom. The rear seats fold down separately to create space for larger items of luggag.
Exterior Design. With the new Panamera models, the rear end has been restyled; its lines sharpened. The rear screen is larger and flatter. LED taillights have become narrower and more crisply defined. Seen from the rear, the new Panamera models look more modern and boast tauter proportions. Also included as part of the Panamera design are Bi-Xenon headlights. The daytime running lights are now integrated into the main headlight units in the form of four LED spotlights. Together with the more distinctive powerdome of the bonnet, the new sideskirts and exterior mirrors, the Panamera offers a more sporty look.
