The words “all new” tend to be overused in the automotive world. Give a car a new body color and a few different creases in the sheet metal – or just a new model year – and it’s immediately dubbed “all new.” In the case of the 2017 Porsche Panamera, available soon to the Westford drivers served by Porsche of Nashua, it may actually be an understatement.
See, when it comes to the new Porsche Panamera, it actually is all new. The chassis, body, engine, and transmission are entirely new. So is the infotainment system. Not only that, even the factory that crafts the body is new. Porsche AG has never done things by half-measures, but in this case they’ve outdone themselves.
First, the body: it’s still recognizable in profile as a Porsche car, and as a Porsche Panamera at that. But the sense of proportion is better with this generation. What’s more, the architecture has evolved from a four-door to a five-door layout. Equally important, it’s built on the new generation Modular Standard Architecture, which will underpin new Porsche cars in the future.
There are three initial trims: 4S, 4S Diesel and Turbo. Each comes with all-wheel drive standard. Aluminum alloy-intensive construction paired to new higher-horsepower engines boosts acceleration and a zero-to-sixty time that’s downright exhilarating. There’s also more room for passengers and cargo than there was before.
There’s more to come later in 2017. Rear-wheel drive versions will be available. The existing S Hybrid trim will be joined by two plug-in variants. An entry-level trim is also waiting in the wings.
