Stop smacking your iPhone, tablet, laptop etc, there’s nowt wrong with your aspect ratio – what we have here is the Panamera Executive with a 150mm longer wheelbase than the standard four-door Porsche.
The more spacious version of the all-new Panamera, which will be on display later this month at the Los Angeles motor show, has a wheelbase that measures a whopping 3,100mm. The standard model's is 2,950mm between the front and back wheels so the newbie won't just afford far more leg room for those in the second row but be even more luxurious too. Incidentally, this is the same increase as the first generation Executive model but the second generation features an optional bigger rear centre console with two built-in folding tables. You can even spec the rear seat entertainment system which adds dual 10.1in tablets which have been integrated in the front seats’ backrests. They can be removed so you can use them outside the saloon which is a pretty nifty feature. It also comes with a panoramic roof, heated front and rear seats, and roll-up sunblind behind the rear seats. If you go all-out on the spec sheet you’ll have a very smooth ride thanks to the adaptive air suspension featuring an electronically-controlled damper system. It’ll soak up road imperfections as if they weren’t even there. The trim, which will be available for the Panamera 4, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid, Panamera 4S and Panamera Turbo, can also be had with soft-close doors, rear-axle steering, full-LED adaptive headlights, LED ambient lighting, and four-zone climate control.
Porsche will also be showcasing the stretched luxury saloon - available exclusively with four-wheel drive - with a new entry-level 325bhp turbocharged petrol V6 (it is 20bhp stronger than the previous-gen entry V6). This motor will also be available for the rear-wheel drive Panamera and all-wheel drive Panamera 4.
