The Panamera has been facelifted for the 2014 model year! This facelift is set to make the exterior more sculpted and refined, by making the front fascia tighter and more prominent. The new car now features larger air intakes and a more distinctive transition to the headlights. When viewed from the back, the new generation Panamera is distinguished by its revised power lift gate and widened rear glass that emphasizes the horizontal aspects of the sport sedan. This effect gives the Panamera the visual appearance of a lower stance on the road. This concept is reinforced by integrating the license plate bracket lower in the rear bumper. The rear body section features a wider spoiler and a tighter transition to the rear lights, similar to the visual transition of the headlights at the front of the car.

Porsche developed an entirely new engine for the new generation Panamera S and Pana -
mera 4S. Systematic downsizing has resulted in an engine with two fewer cylinders. It is
closely related to the 3.6-litre V6 in the Panamera and Panamera 4, but its displacement
was reduced to 3.0 liters. Twin turbo chargers let the new engine develop five per cent more power at 420 hp. The new engine also impresses with an improved torque curve; maxi mum torque of 521Nm. is available between 1,750 and 5,000 rpm, which offers instantaneous torque in most driving situations.

The interior of the new generation Panamera unites sports appeal and comfort with four
bucket seats and variable cargo space for a high level of everyday utility. The new two-tone combination of black/carrera red emphasizes the sporty character of the vehicle. The car is safer too, with brighter bi-xenon headlights to better see in the dark as standard equipment for all new Panamera models. As an alternative, Porsche is offering LED headlights as an option for the first time. This package consists of the Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus (PDLS Plus) with high and low beam headlights as well as an auxiliary main beam and four-point daytime running lights in LED technology.
The adaptive cruise control system with Porsche Active Safe (PAS) is based on radar detec -
tion. It regulates the preset vehicle speed and distance to vehicles ahead. In addition, when approaching a vehicle ahead too fast, PAS uses an acoustic and a visual signal as well as a brake jolt to indicate the need for intervention. If the driver reacts with insufficiently strong braking, the system boosts the brake pressure according to the situation – within technological limits and up to hard braking.
