These new engines pass a direct injection and are associated with, or has an automatic transmission has six reports for the Panamera S, or a dual-clutch PDK transmission and seven reports on other models.
After the arrival of the first three versions will follow a declination called entry-level powered by a V6 3.6-liter engine of 300 horsepower and finally an exclusive version with a hybrid powertrain.
The 2010 Porsche Panamera will be available on the Canadian automotive chessboard of October. The Panamera S will be offered with an MSRP of $ 115,100. That of the Panamera 4S is established a $ 120,300 and the Panamera Turbo looks with an MSRP of $ 155,000.
Here are more details on this large sedan, issued by Porsche Canada
World Premiere of technological innovation of the Porsche Panamera
In this Grand Touring sports performance and luxury are a unique symbiosis.
MISSISSAUGA - March 18, 2009 --- Porsche AG today unveiled the key technologies of the new Panamera prior to the world premiere of this Grand Tourism Shanghai. This includes several new technological innovations in the segment of luxury performance vehicles. These innovations include the Start Stop function first break system and automatic startup of the engine offered in conjunction with an automatic transmission, air suspension with increased air volume on demand as well as aerodynamic qualities grace variables has a retractable rear spoiler is multiposition deployant as required on the Panamera Turbo models.
Offeror's clientele segment of premium cars a new type of vehicle, the Panamera is a four-seater Grand Touring car that combines dynamic performance to a superior elegance and is well positioned to stand out in its segment as the it did before the 911 models, Cayenne, Boxster and Cayman. Although competing models which has the reputation is well established in the segment of premium cars, the Panamera is the leader of the segment as a performance, a driving dynamics and efficiency. Indeed, these qualities have always been the cornerstone of the expertise of Porsche, given the high performance efficient performance, lightweight construction and aerodynamic optimization engines have always been crucial in the field of motorized sports.
For the first time, the Panamera combines these characteristics typical of Porsche and spirited character of a sports car with superior comfort and generous space of a performance sedan exceptional luxury, thereby creating a single car Grand Tourism.
Maximum performance and efficiency: the powertrain
The unique combination of comfort, performance and efficiency offered by the Panamera begins with the powertrain: it is offered exclusively with engine technology vanguard dotes perfected a system of direct fuel injection has low consumption. The coherent optimization of friction on these engines is further enhanced by innovations such as map management coolant temperature, as well as auxiliary devices to the effectiveness improved.
Porsche offers for the first time in this market segment has a gearbox dual-clutch gearbox has dual clutch Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) seven reports, contributing to a reduction in fuel consumption and a higher standard in matters of sport performance. On efficiency far superior to that of conventional automatic transmissions boxes, the PDK box can save even more thanks to its long upper fuel ratio reminiscent of overdrives. Moreover, it offers outstanding performance with driving dynamics typical of Porsche, thanks to optimal passages superiors and reports changes in ultrafast and unequal relationships, without any interruption of engine power.
Start-Stop function, first break system and automatic startup of the engine equipping the premium cars equipped with automatic transmission, is another important innovation. In conjunction with other specific enhancements aimed at improving the general efficiency of the vehicle - such as tires with low rolling resistance and disc brakes-optimized to reduce forces Residual braking - the Panamera S has consumed just 10.8 liters to 100 km on the new European test cycle - and this despite the superior performance of the vehicle.
Chassis and suspension: driving dynamics and comfort all-in-one
The design of the chassis and suspension of the Panamera offers no compromise between sporting performance and superior comfort, but is rather a combination of both. The adjustable base, you get a high level of comfort. But at the touch of a button PASM adaptive suspension system, you get a resolutely sporty suspension.
Another innovation series on the Panamera Turbo and optional on other models is the adaptive air suspension, which increases the volume of air as needed. It allows an even more extensive range of sporty driving qualities and ride comfort. Driving dynamics and comfort can also be improved through the active regulation of the PDCC stability, available in combination with the rear differential control electronics. Thanks to the Sport Plus button, the optional Sports Chrono sets allow the driver to choose the high performance tuning without compromising all systems powertrain and suspension, including the system Porsche Traction Management (PTM) with its permanent integral traction . The PTM system is the series Panamera 4S and the Panamera Turbo.
Body: mild and functional
The body of the Panamera combines the lightness of a sports car with superior comfort, generous space and excellent aerodynamic qualities. The methods and materials of the most advanced products have been used for its construction. These include different classes of steels, light alloys such as aluminum and magnesium, as well as plastic. Non-severe portieres have a supporting structure made of cast aluminum treated with laser, an aluminum siding and window frames in magnesium allege mold under pressure. Thanks to this structure slight smart, the weight of the Panamera S, for example, is only 1 770 kg.
The rear seats set a new standard in comfort and modularity. Providing individual sitting on measurement, they provide maximum comfort thanks to their wide range of power adjustment as well as headrest specially adapted to the seats and controls regulation of temperature optional. The Panamera is also equipped with a safe space variable, highly functional. Tilting forward individually, the rear seatbacks, once folded, provide a loading space from end to end until 1263 liters and produces a perfectly flat floor.
The Panamera is the first car in its segment with a lid under full aerodynamic body, extending around the tunnel shaft and rear mufflers. This cover reduces air resistance and lift forces on the axles, which results in a reduction of fuel consumption and an improvement in driving dynamics. The most visible feature of the overall aerodynamics, rear spoiler is active regulation has four positions of the Panamera Turbo. Thanks to an efficient management of steering angles and has a surface geometry adapted to the driving conditions, the rear spoiler optimizes the aerodynamics and performance of the vehicle.
Audio: sonority sports and Grand Touring superior comfort
Managing to achieve a perfect balance between the sonority of the Exhaust system, air intakes and engine as well as aeroacoustics of the vehicle, the Porsche engineers have given the Panamera a harmonious and characteristic sonority, thanks the union of seemingly contradictory requirements. Aeroacoustic qualities were analyzed from the beginning on a clay model, and have been optimized through numerous technical improvements. The result is a low noise level appropriate to the segment of luxury performance vehicles. Concurrently, the powerful and dynamic sonority typically Porsche is clearly audible during acceleration. Thus, the acoustic signature of the Panamera goes silent a cruising speed has a hoarse and powerful sonority during sporty driving.
Through new technologies and proven technologies, Porsche Weissach engineers have managed to solve all conflicts emerged during the development of the Panamera. The engines are powerful and dynamic, efficient and clean. The Panamera combines the driving comfort features of a Grand Touring has sporty handling so typical of Porsche. And despite the dynamic proportions of the vehicle and its silhouette reminiscent of cuts inside offers luxury, exceptional functionality and versatility.
The Porsche Panamera will make its entry in the Canadian market in October. The Panamera S propulsion will be available from $ 115,100. The MSRP for the Panamera 4S AWD is $ 120,300 and the MSRP for the Panamera Turbo, endowed V8 biturbo engine with 500 horsepower, is $ 155,000.
