Here is what you can expect from this fantastic car:

  • Dimensions: length of 4.97 m, 1.9 m in width, 1.4 m in height and a huge wheelbase of 2.9 m, while the total weight is around 2 tons;
  • Equipment will contain about everything we know so far of the Porsche heritage: the electronic controlled air suspension, PDK gearbox with double clutch , self-blocking LSD differential;
  • The launch engines will be :
    • a 300 HP V6 (scheduled to appear later, in 2009)
    • a  V8, for the 400 HP Panamera S model
    • a 500 HP V8
    • a 600 HP V8 Turbo S (planned to appear later on)
    • a hybrid engine for sure, but we don`t know the details yet (probably the same as the one from  the Porsche Cayenne Hybrid)
    • officials don't want to confirm a possible high-tech diesel engine … yet
