Porsche finally introduced the 2024 Panamera sedan on Friday. The four-door will have new styling, stronger engines, and better handling as it goes into its third generation.
Porsche will have four distinct E-Hybrid drivetrain options, the most potent of which is the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. It has a redesigned 4.0-liter V8 twin-turbo engine that is twin-turbocharged, as well as an electric motor that runs on a 25.9-kWh battery. An eight-speed PDK transmission distributes the 670 horsepower and 685 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels. Its top speed is 195 mph, and it can reach 60 mph in 3.0 seconds.

The Panamera and Panamera 4 get a turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine under the hood. It produces more power than before, pumping out 348 hp and 368 lb-ft of twist – an increase of 23 horses and 37 lb-ft, respectively. The V6 can propel the regular model to 60 mph in 5.0 seconds and help it reach its 169-mph top speed. The all-wheel-drive Panamera 4 can achieve that same feat in 4.7 seconds, reaching 168 mph.
Riding On Air
The Panamera comes standard with a two-chamber, two-valve air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management. It separates the damper’s compression and rebound control for greater comfort.
The optional Porsche Active Ride available for E-Hybrid models can keep the Panamera’s body flat and even overcompensate for the vehicle’s pitch and roll movements. It allows the sedan to lean into corners like a motorcycle. Rear-axle steering is also optional.
Inside, the Panamera has a revamped center console that moves the gear selector to the right of the steering wheel and onto the dash, just like the company’s all-electric Taycan. An optional 10.9-inch passenger display is also now available, allowing the passenger to see the vehicle’s performance data, change the infotainment settings, or stream a video.
Porsche distinguishes the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid from the rest of the lineup with a unique front fascia, a rear diffuser, and dark bronze tailpipes. The model also features the contrasting Turbonite color on the side air blades, the window surrounds, and the “turbo” branding on the rear. The company also uses Turbonite throughout the interior, including the central tachometer in the digital instrument cluster.
Price And Availability
The 2024 Panamera is available to order now, and the automaker expects it’ll reach dealers in Spring 2024. It’ll start at $101,550 (including a $1,650 destination charge), while the Panamera 4 will have a $108,550 starting price.
Porsche says it will announce the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid’s pricing details and arrival time at a later date. The automaker will continue to build the model at its Leipzig factory.
