Porsche has added the flagship Turbo S model to its facelifted Panamera range.
Visually the 2014 model wears the same restyled bi-xenon headlights and front bumper with smaller lights and larger air intakes as its counterparts. At the rear there are new taillights, a restyled tailgate with a wider spoiler and window, and a more appealing bumper with relocated number plate recess.
Under the hood the twin-turbo 4.8-litre V8 engine receives new turbocharger units with larger compressors along with raising injector pressure. These changes see power and torque increased by 45 kW (50 hp) and 50 Nm over the regular Turbo, resulting in 419 kW (570 hp) and 800 Nm. On the road the Turbo S cracks 100 km/h in 3.8 seconds and reaches a top speed of 310 km/h (192 mph), but is still capable of returning the same average consumption figures as the Panamera Turbo at 10.2 litres per 100 km, which is more than 11% less than its predecessor.
Dues to be unveiled in Tokyo next month, customers in Germany will have to part with €180,024, while the Executive variant, which features a 15 cm longer wheelbase than standard for improved leg room and comfort, starts from €197,041.
