Porsche launches 2nd Gen Panamera at Rs 1.19cr


German sports car maker Porsche has launched the second generation Panamera, a four-seater sports car, starting at Rs 1.19 crore in India.

Anil Reddi, Director of Porsche India said, “The Panamera is Porsche’s unique offering in the Gran Turismo segment – it has four doors and four seats but it’s a sports car through and through.”

Five models of the new Panamera are available for sale in India: the Panamera Turbo, the naturally aspirated Panamera GTS, two variants of the petrol V6, Panamera and Panamera 4, as well as the Panamera Diesel.

The Panamera Turbo features an engine with peak power of 520 horsepower, a maximum speed of 305 km/h and 10.2 l/100km average fuel consumption.

The Panamera Diesel, meanwhile has a top speed of 244 km/h, 250 horsepower and an average consumption of 6.3 l/100km.

"The model redesign has an enhanced driver experience at its core. The redeveloped Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) with virtual intermediate gears further improves fuel economy and comfort. At the front suspension, larger chassis mounts offer even more comfort and greater solidity, whilst advanced steering box mounts provide a more direct response. Newly developed tyres, lighter 18-inch wheels and a specifically tuned Porsche Stability Management (PSM) add to the car’s sportiness and comfort", added a press release from the company.

The new Panamera comes with a host of features as standard equipment, including electric sun roof, Porsche Communication Management plus Navigation, BOSE sound system, Park Assist with reverse camera and Air Suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) – the latter is present in all models except in the entry-level V6 petrol variant.

An extensive list of optional equipment is available for customers, which includes full LED headlights featuring Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus and a 1000 W Burmester Surround Sound System. In addition, the new Panamera can be highly customised through the Porsche Exclusive Program.

The new Panamera is available for order as of today across the eight authorised Porsche Centres in India. The basic retail price for the new Panamera.
