Porsche Panamera Turbo S Executive
This 'limousine' performance sedan offers the benefits of the non-executive Panamera Turbo S - plenty of power, athletic handling and overall elegance. However, the 'executive' badging means more space on the interior, especially for the rear passengers, courtesy of a wheelbase that's about six inches longer than the regular Panamera sedan. The powertrain is carried over unchanged from the non-executive version.
As a top of the range version, the Panamera Turbo featured the same 4.8-liter V8 engine from the S-version, but with a pair of turbochargers that increased the power from 400 hp to 500 hp. It was available exclusively with a 7-speed automatic (PDK double-clutch) gearbox and all-wheel-drive. Inside, the Panamera Turbo designers took their inspiration from the Vertu luxury mobile phones, with high end appointments throughout. This is one quick and sporty sedan.
The Panamera Turbo was the best balance between performance, luxury, and comfort. The new, 4.0-liter twin-turbo engine offered 30 hp more than its predecessor, despite having a smaller displacement. The PASM (Porsche Adaptive Suspension Management) was fitted as an option and so was the Porsche Chrono Package. It was fitted as standard with a 7-speed (PDK – dual-clutch) automatic transmission which sent its torque in all corners via PTM (Porsche Traction Management) system.
Porsche Panamera Turbo S
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S is unquestionably a performance beast, with plenty of power and presence to go with its muscular stance. However, the best bit about the Panamera Turbo S may be how it cleverly masks its brute strength and capabilities beneath an elegant layer of the silky-smooth ride and top-class luxury. In that sense, it perfectly fits the bill of a luxury performance sedan - just what Porsche set out to achieve.
The sporty, luxurious character of the new Panamera Turbo S is evident not only in its driving performance but also in the key distinguishing features of its appearance. The Palladium, metallic exterior colour, which is available solely for the new Panamera Turbo S. Porsche added 50 additional horsepower than the Panamera Turbo. The 4.8-liter V8 turbocharged engine was mated to a standard PDK 7-speed automatic gearbox and gets PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) fitted as standard.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo also got the Sport Turismo body option in 2018. It is a practical five-seater with lots of room, a great design and stonking performance.It got all the same powerful petrol engine as the sedan version of the Panamera Turbo. Its 4.0-litre biturbo V8 develops 404 kW / 550 hp (at 5,750 rpm) and a maximum torque of 770 Nm (between 1,960 and 4,500 rpm). It has 30 hp more power than the previous model and accelerates to 100 km/h in 3.6 seconds.
The Turbo S featured the same 4.8-liter bi-turbo engine from the Turbo version, but with a new engine management system and improved turbochargers. The result was a 550 hp beast that could blast most of the supercars on the road with a 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) time of 3.8 seconds. It's all-wheel-drive and the Sport Chrono Package Turbo were standard features.
By combining a Porsche Panamera Turbo with the hybrid system already developed for the 4 E-Hybrid, the result is pretty epic. The new Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid sees the sportscar manufacturer launch a plug-in hybrid model as the flagship of a model line for the first time. The four-litre V8 engine from the Panamera Turbo is combined with an electric motor, resulting in 500 kW/680 hp of system power and outstanding power delivery: Even when just above idle speed, the Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid offers an 850 Nm of torque. How about 3.4 seconds 0 - 60 mph time???

Porsche Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid
There is nothing pretentious about the formidable Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid. The big sedan is all about serious power, performance and style. It is currently the second-most-powerful car in Porsche’s entire lineup, only behind the 700-hp 911 GT2 RS. Only a few rivals can match the luxury sedan in terms of raw power.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo got an update at the same time as the rest of the Panamera lineup for the 2014 model year. The 2014 Panamera Turbo got the same twin-turbo 4.8-liter V8 unit but now with more power. Power was 520 hp instead of 500 hp and it was coupled to the same 7-speed (PDK – double-clutch) automatic gearbox as before, but with a different final drive ratio. The Turbo was fitted with the PTM (Porsche Traction Management) all-wheel-drive system. With the Porsche Chrono Package, the car received an extra boost when needed.
The big news for 2014 was the introduction of an all-new Panamera Turbo executive model. It featured a 15 cm (5.9”) longer wheelbase than the Turbo. It was built to offer more legroom in the back. Strangely though, it was built especially for the Chinese market, where the long-wheelbase version of a car, any car, was considered an executive car by default. Basically, the Executive Panamera is an excuse for Porsche to elongate a Panamera Turbo by nearly six inches for an extra $19,800. All of the legroom goes to passengers in the back.
Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo
The Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid Sport Turismo is extreme indulgence at its peak. A family wagon with almost 700 hp on tap and the ability to launch hard enough to strain your back muscles. Porsche claims the car can hit 60 mph in just 3 seconds. It's impressive on its own, but even then, it seems the carmaker was being conservative as some motoring journalists were able to clock a time of 2.7 seconds. That's faster than a Ferrari 488 GTB!
This family car seats five, boasts generous cargo space, and will top out at an incredible 196 mph if the highway is long enough sans speed limits - think the German autobahn! For 2021, Porsche replaced the Panamera Turbo with the Turbo S variant with new design cues like the LED light strip between the taillights alongside some minor interior tweaks.
For the first time ever, an Executive version of the Panamera Turbo S is also available with a wheelbase that has been extended by 15 centimetres. As a result, the Panamera Turbo S Executive offers significantly more space and even more comfort, particularly at the rear. Thermal and noise-insulated windows, which include privacy glazing, the interior lighting package designed especially for the rear and a large centre console at the rear are just some of the extensive equipment options that belong to this series.
