Just how important is the Porsche Panamera to Porsche AG? The New York International Auto Show holds a clue. It’s the last major auto show before the autumn, in one of the country’s most populous regions, its most saturated media market, and the area of the country with the most luxury cars per capita. And the company is focused like a laser on the latest iteration of the Porsche Panamera.
The Porsche Panamera range got its global unveiling earlier this year, but the NYIAS marks the cars’ North American debut. As a refresher, here’s what to expect:
2018 Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo: With storage space that nudges close to Porsche Macan territory but the kind of sporty handling that’s come to characterize the low-slung Porsche Panamera, we expect this wagon to be a hit.
2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid: If you still think hybrids are dull, Porsche cars should disabuse you of that notion. Porsche hybrids rule the racetrack, and the 2018 Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid — a plug-in hybrid that produces 680 net horsepower — is a fair bid to rule the road.
Other Porsche models will also be on display at the show. We expect the Porsche 911 GT3 to be on hand, as well as the Porsche 911 GTS variations. Each of these cars will be coming to our Porsche dealership in the fall, but none of them is getting quite the same push that the company is giving to the new Porsche Panamera.
The models listed above will arrive at Porsche of Nashua for our customers in Westford and Danvers, MA later this year. For questions, pre-orders, or to test drive a vehicle from our extensive inventory of used or new Porsche models, visit us at 170 Main Dunstable Road in Nashua, NH today.
