2018 Porsche Panamera Release Date and Specs

 

2018 Porsche Panamera News – We got the Porsche Panamera in 2010 and since that we have only got a couple of modifications but not the entire new model. Not until this year. Yes, we will have the all new Porsche Panamera, finally revealed at the special event in Berlin this November.

This new model is coming with the modified shoulder line, trademark long hood and some big alloy wheels. The body itself is going to be 35mm longer, 5mm taller, 5mm wider and it is going to have a 30mm longer wheelbase.

Like in the most models of new cars, we get some slight differences to the previous model, like new intakes and a better looking grille which combined, give this model a new more menacing look while the back goes with new LED taillights which go across the tail, interrupted only with the sign of Porsche giving everyone a clear message who is in front, while the rear is deploying automatically to complete the feeling of eating the dust behind this beast.

Porsche Panamera 2018 Interior

It seems like everyone is running fast into the future. Touch screen phones, touch screen doors, touch screen… screens, touch screen cookers, touch screen mp4 players and now touch screen dashboards. Next winter will be fun for those lucky ones, when they try to turn on the heating with gloves on… Jokes to the side, the dashboard without all those buttons looks like out of this world. And the combination of the tachometer, analogue gauge and the 12.3″ touch screen with satellite navigation and voice control system.

E-Hybrids are going to have a combination of V6 petrol engine and an electric motor which combined give the range of 22 miles and a 410bhp. That will be the “entry” hybrid, and we will get the G2 plug-in too, which will be the “sport” version of Porsche Panamera.

Some will say a lot of bad things about this car due to its size. But in the end, you buy these cars, not because of its usefulness, gadgets, elegance or comfort but because you can and you love sport cars. You like the power and speed… or to be seen. Nevertheless, this car will also come in a coupe version or estate version, even larger than the sport version. It will have a recognizable sharp design, with five seats, higher usability etc. The most important thing for this version is that it’s going to be shipped to the North America and China, even though the estate versions are known to be the “Europe thing”.
