Porsche announces Panamera with 300-hp V6

Recommended Posts

Porsche has just announced that it is filling out the remainder of its Panamera lineup with the addition of a V6-powered model that will be available with either rear- or all-wheel-drive. Starting price for the RWD V6 Panamera will be $74,400 while the AWD Panamera 4 will begin at $78,900 (plus destination).

Wondering how that compares with the V8-powered Panamera S? Let's look at some numbers. The 3.6-liter V6 puts out 300 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, which is a decrease of an even hundred horses and 74 lb-ft from the 4.8-liter V8. Each buyer will have to decide for themselves whether those hundred extra ponies are worth a $15,400 surcharge.

Porsche's seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe (PDK) dual-clutch transmission will be standard equipment in the V6 Panamera, along with such necessities as an electric moonroof, power liftgate and the Porsche Communication Management (PCM) system with navigation.

According to Porsche, the V6 puts 66 fewer pounds over the front axle, resulting in an overall weight of 3,880 pounds. Auto Stop/Start technology ought to help the V6 Panamera eke a few more miles from each gallon of gasoline, and though official EPA numbers are not yet available Porsche says the car will not be subject to a gas guzzler tax.

Porsche plans new sedan to rival Mercedes: Report

 

BERLIN - German sports car maker Porsche will introduce a smaller version of its four-door Panamera sedan by 2017, at the latest, weekly magazine Auto Bild reported on Thursday, citing no sources.

 

The new car labelled Pajun will expand Porsche's portfolio to six model lines and compete with the E-Class made by Daimler's Mercedes-Benz and its CLS coupe, the magazine said.

 

Costs for the Pajun will range between 65,000 euros (S$107,035.50) and 100,000 euros.

 

 

Porsche spokesman Hans-Gerd Bode told Reuters there were many ideas for a sixth model but decisions had not been taken.

 

Chief Executive Officer Matthias Mueller has said that Porsche may expand its model lines to seven from four to help achieve its goal of increasing annual sales to about 200,000.

 

Porsche makes the 911 sports car, the Boxster/Cayman series, the Cayenne SUV and the Panamera. The company will next year start building a fifth model, the Macan compact SUV.

Porsche also will borrow the Audi Q5's platform to create its next smaller SUV - Cajun. Power will come from engines out of Audi's parts bin, tuned by Porsche for slightly more power and sound.

With the higher ARF since the change to a more progressive tax system last year, even the base Panamera is asking for more than SGD 450,000 now, with the usual specification. Gone are the days when one can drive off a Panamera for about SGD 350,000. Life is tough.
