While the Porsche Panamera Turbo was the best of both worlds in terms of luxury and performance, the Turbo S version tilted the scale toward the sports area.
The Panamera Turbo got the fastest lap-time in the sport-sedan segment for the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife of 7m28.81. Its time was better than the one recorded by other supercars such as Koenigsegg CCX, Pagani Zonda F, or even the 2007 Porsche 911 GT2. And the Panamera S was even quicker and faster, but not tested.

For the 2020 model, the Panamera Turbo S featured a different front fascia than the rest of the range, with new grilles in the apron and two pairs of light strips for the daytime running lights. It was fitted with standard LED headlights. On the sides, the 21” light-alloy wheels featured a specific design. In the back, the revamped light strip ran seamlessly over the trunk lid, with an adapted contour and new LED taillights were installed. The three-piece retractable wing was kept. The big, quad, exhaust in the rear offered a deeper sound than before.

The interior of the 2020 Panamera Turbo S featured the already known Porsche Communication Management infotainment system with a 12.3” touch-screen display mounted at the same level as the steering wheel, on top of the center stack. It featured the improved Voice Pilot online voice control and wireless Apple CarPlay. Porsche didn’t say anything about the Android Auto connectivity.

The 2020 Panamera Turbo S featured the same twin-turbo V8 engine as the GTS or the Turbo version but tuned to offer 630 hp. It offered 80 hp more than the non-facelift Panamera Turbo. Its performances were on par with other supercars, obtaining a 3.1 second for the 0 to 100 kph (0 to 62 mph) run.

In 2013, Porsche refreshed the Panamera lineup.
But there were not only visual changes but some technical improvements as well enhanced one of the fastest four-door sedans on the market.

The four-door Porsche was a dream made true in 2009 with the introduction of the Panamera. It was not the best time to launch a sport-luxury car on the market since the world was still in an economic crisis. Some countries, such as China and Turkey, were not affected as bad as others. So, Porsche decided to launch its four-door vehicle in Shanghai. The facelift was launched in the same location, in 2013.

The Turbo S model was introduced later that year, at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show. The facelifted model featured new headlights and taillights, which looked more similar to those found in a 911. The Panamera 2014 model was offered with either a standard or long-wheelbase. The latter featured a 150 mm (5.9”) bigger distance between the axles and that led to a much bigger interior room, especially for the rear passengers.

Inside, there were 14-way adjustable power-seats fitted as standard in the front and two individual seats in the rear. The two passengers in the Panamera Turbo S (with the long-wheelbase) received 12 cm (4.7”) more legroom. A central armrest was fitted as standard for them and it included cup holders and individual climate controls.

For the drivetrain, Porsche added 50 additional horsepower than the Panamera Turbo. The 4.8-liter V8 turbocharged engine was mated to a standard PDK (Porsche Dual-Clutch) 7-speed automatic gearbox. The PCCB (Porsche Carbon Ceramic Brakes) were fitted as standard.

Following the trend set by the 911 range, the Panamera offered a new top-model in the form of the Turbo S, which outpaced the Turbo version with 50 hp more.
The Turbo S had to wait for two years before its introduction in downtown Kuala Lumpur in 2011. Since its launch, the four-door GranTurismo Porsche was very well received by the market in all its forms. At the same time with the Turbo S, the German car-maker introduced the Hybrid version as well.

The Panamera’s headlights resembled those installed on the Cayenne. The profile resembled an elongated 911 or the 989 concept-car. On the front fenders, two vents were used to extract the air within the wheel-well and decrease the front-lift effect. In the back, the taillights resembled those found in the Cayman. In the back, on the trunk-lid, a retractable wing was installed. It was automatically extended at speeds over 120 kph (74.5 mph).

Inside, the Panamera Turbo designers took their inspiration from the Vertu luxury mobile phones. A four-seat layout was the only option, with a big center console that separated the driver from the other passengers. In the back, there was a decent room for adults and since it was a hatchback it could get an impressive amount of luggage. The dashboard was typical for a Porsche, with round dials and centrally-mounted tachometer. Despite its hatchback shape, the rear passengers had enough legroom and headroom.

The Turbo S featured the same 4.8-liter bi-turbo engine from the Turbo version, but with a new engine management system and improved turbochargers. The result was a 550 hp beast that could blast most of the supercars on the road with a 0-100 kph (0-62 mph) time of 3.8 seconds. It’s all-wheel-drive and the Sport Chrono Package Turbo were standard features.
