New 2017 Porsche Panamera a sports car among luxury sedans
Mississauga – The new 2017 Porsche Panamera reconciles two contrasting characteristics more than ever before: the performance of a genuine sports car and the comfort of a luxury sedan. The second generation of the Panamera is advancing to become a performance icon in its segment. In this transformation, Porsche has systematically improved the Panamera concept – with a four-door car that has been redeveloped and redesigned down to the last detail. Its engines and transmissions have been redesigned, its chassis perfected, and its display and control concept reinterpreted for the future. The new Panamera also extends the borders between the world of ambitious sports cars and the world of comfortable cruising cars with highlights such as rear axle steering, active roll stabilization, and three-chamber air suspension.
In keeping with the overall concept of the new Panamera, the chassis also unites the cruising comfort of a luxury sedan with the performance of a true sports car. This is achieved by supplementing the impressive basic layout with optional innovative systems such as an adaptive air suspension with new three-chamber technology, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) electronic damper control, the enhanced Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control Sport (PDCC Sport) system including Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus), and active roll stabilization, as well as a new electromechanical steering system. The integrated 4D Chassis Control system analyzes and synchronizes all chassis systems in real time and optimizes the road performance of the new Panamera. Porsche is also taking the steering precision and handling of sports cars into the GT class with rear axle steering – which is also new, adapted from the 918 Spyder and 911 Turbo. Brake performance has been improved as well.
