New Porsche Panamera Launches In Singapore

Porsche Singapore has rolled out the red carpet for the all-new, third-generation Panamera.

Unveiled amidst the lush elegance of Claudine restaurant at Dempsey Hill, guests indulged in a four-course gastronomic adventure at Claudine.

Each dish reflects the Panamera’s unique features – from its distinct Porsche DNA to its seamless blend of luxury and performance, and the endless customisation options that allow it to stand out.

“The all-new Panamera stands for equal parts luxury and sportiness inside out,” said Mr Andre Brand, General Manager of Porsche Singapore.

“Our flagship has always been the choice for those bold enough to forge their own path. Now, with even more powerful drive systems, a fundamentally modernised operating concept, and plenty of innovative technology, we underline our claim to offer the most dynamic sedan in the segment.”

The new Panamera maintains its iconic lines and proportions, measuring 5,052 mm in length, 1,937 mm in width, and 1,423 mm in height. For those looking for a bit more room, the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive variant stretches to 5,202 mm in length.

The revamped exterior boasts a more expressive and dynamic look, with a redesigned front end, muscular arches, and iconic four-point LED daytime running lights.

Centre-lock wheels are now standard on the Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. At the rear, the signature Porsche light bar integrates seamlessly with a redesigned rear cluster, tapering off the Panamera’s silhouette to create harmonious rear lines.

Inside, the Panamera has the new Porsche Driver Experience cockpit, ensuring all controls are within easy reach of the driver.

The selector lever is positioned to the right of the steering wheel, and the mode switch and assistance control stalks are directly accessible.

An optional passenger display integrates the passenger into the driving experience, displaying vehicle performance data, allowing infotainment system operation, and supporting video streaming, though cleverly designed to avoid distracting the driver.

The new Panamera range kicks off with a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6, optimised to deliver 348hp and 500 Nm of torque. This boosts the Panamera’s sprint to 100 km/h to just 5.1 seconds with a top speed of 272 km/h.

For hybrid enthusiasts, three powertrains offer greater electric range, faster charging speeds, better throttle response, and improved driving performance. The new high-voltage battery provides around 45% more capacity in a comparable space, with an 11 kW On-Board AC charger shortening charging time to just under three hours.

The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid combines a new hybrid system with a revamped 2.9-litre V6 biturbo petrol engine, delivering a system output of 463hp and 96 kilometres of pure electric range.

The Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid, with its revised 4.0-litre V8 twin-turbo engine, offers a staggering 670hp and 930 Nm of torque, catapulting from zero to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and reaching a top speed of 315 km/h.

Standard on the new Panamera is a new adaptive two-valve air suspension, which, combined with Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM), offers balance between comfort and sportiness. For those seeking even greater handling, optional all-wheel steering is available.

Porsche Active Ride suspension system is an option on selected models. The system’s active shock absorbers and electrically operated hydraulic pump work together to maintain a level body, even during dynamic driving.

The new Panamera offers a plethora of customisation options through the Porsche Car Configurator and Porsche Exclusive Manufaktur, from SportDesign packages to 21-inch wheels and iconic paint programs. For those desiring a truly unique vehicle, Porsche’s bespoke Sonderwunsch programme allows for personalized one-offs.

Now available for order, prices for the new Panamera start from SGD$498,468, with deliveries set for the latter half of 2024.

This price includes a comprehensive five-year maintenance and warranty package but excludes COE.
