Porsche Is Bringing Two New Panameras To The 2016 LA Auto Show


One is entry-level and the other is top-end.

Porsche is taking the wraps off of two new Panameras at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show. The recently redesign luxury sedan lineup will grow by one new engine and body style. The new engine is a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 rated at 330 horsepower. It's more efficient than the 3.0-liter turbo V6 in the last Panamera and offers 20 more horsepower. While the new engine is for the entry level the new body style Porsche is showing off is high-end. The Panamera Executive extends the wheelbase of the sedan by 5.9 inches.

The Executive body style can be had with all engine configurations, meaning that if you demanded comfort and speed you could opt for a Panamera Turbo Executive making 550 horsepower. In addition to gaining 5.9 inches of legroom, the new Executive body also comes with new standard features. These include a panoramic roof, multi-way adjustable electronic heated comfort seats (front and rear), an adaptive air suspension system with electronically controlled dampers (Porsche Active Suspension, aka PASM) and a roll-up sunshade behind the rear headrests. The 4S and Turbo models get even more goodies, such as rear-axle steering and soft-close doors.

As the top-tier model the Turbo Executive comes equipped with four-zone climate control, LED main headlights, which includes the Porsche Dynamic Light System and ambient lighting. Since the Panamera Executive is designed for those who get driven, two 10.1-inch detachable tablets mounted into the front headrests are available as optional extras. If you want to get actual work done a stowaway table can be optioned. There’s no word on pricing or availability, but all should be revealed when the 2016 LA Auto Show kicks off.
