Current Porsche Panamera 4S Executive – Ultimate Guide
The Panamera 4S Executive is just a ‘stretched-out’ version of the regular Panamera sedan. The wheelbase has been lengthened by as much as 15 centimetres, an increase that mostly benefits the rear passengers. The Panamera 4S Executive sits above the Panamera 4 Executive, and they share several similarities, such as the panoramic sunroof, heated rear seats and power sunblind in the rear. Style-wise, the Panamera 4S Executive also boasts silver accents around the fenders and side skirts.
However, the Panamera 4S Executive benefits from a more powerful engine compared to the Panamera 4 Executive. The 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 generates 443 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. That’s an increase of over 100 hp over the Panamera 4 Executive. It helps reinforce the belief that this is no ordinary luxury sedan though it’s doubtful that the passengers at the back will feel the effects of that extra grunt under the hood.
The Panamera 4S Executive is a brisk mover, able to shrug off its 4,400-lb bulk and accelerate to 60 mph in just 4.4 seconds, a full second quicker than the Panamera 4 Executive. It’s even faster with the Sport Chrono package, blasting past 60 mph in 4.2 seconds. Another big plus is the fact that the Panamera 4S Executive is only slightly less fuel-efficient – about one mpg more – than the non-executive models.
