Porsche power.

Summary: The second generation of Porsche Panamera has officially been launched and includes 10 innovative models ranging from sporty to powerful to 21st Century electric hybrid technology.

Porsche is extending its Panamera model range with the second generation of the Gran Turismo. Ten models that offer a full spectrum of motoring desires from power and speed to comfort, luxury and eco- friendly hybrid technology.

This breadth of range is one of the hallmarks of the second generation which now includes two executive versions for the Panamera 4S and Turbo featuring an extended wheel base. A third new model, the Panamera S E-Hybrid marks a new technological benchmark as the world's first plug-in hybrid in the luxury class.

Across the range, new technologies mean fuel savings of up to 56 per cent and - with the exception of the diesel model - more power. The standard version offers a blistering top speed of 259 km/h, 310 hp and fuel consumption of just 8.4 1/100 km, proving efficiency does not need mean a compromise in sporting performance.

Christer Ekberg, Managing Director of Porsche Middle East and Africa said, "The second generation Panamera represents another milestone in Porsche's ongoing legacy. With new design enhancements and state-of-the-art technology, the new Panamera is more beautiful, efficient and powerful than ever."
