Well in this era getting a Grand Tourer is quite difficult as every company is striving to win the battle of the supercars and win the market over their competitors. But the true companies are trying to improve all the aspects of their firms in the time of recession. Don’t you think it has been quite a while since we saw a Grand Tourer from Porsche?
Well yes you might have guessed it by now Porsche has decided to launch its luxury sedan into the wild market. This sedan has been named as Porsche Panamera.
The Panamera represents its sister cars like 911 and Boxster and the designing has been done much like them. The Panamera has been carved out to make a four seater sedan with ample of space for the seating. The back of the cars like the 911 and the Boxster come down like that of a fast back. One of the family related features is the front side air intake and the fog light placement. The lights this time look a different than the previous cars and resemble a more edgy look.
The engine that comes with a Porsche Panamera is a naturally aspired V8 producing 395 hp at 6500 RPM. This can also be increased when customers choose the Turbo version of the Panamera. The Turbo version also comes with aerodynamics with active control along with adjustable rear spoiler for better road performance. The transmission provided with the basic versions is a 6-speed manual gear transmission. Optionally you can apply for a 7-speed double clutch gearbox. The Panamera Turbo already comes with a 7-speed double clutch system. Traction is provided by a Porsche Traction Management system. This makes the Panamera a beast in the world of sedans. So you better keep your purses ready because once after its release you won’t be able to resist!
