Porsche Unveils Long Wheelbase Panamera; Global Debut Set For LA

Written By:

German carmaker Porsche has added a new long wheelbase version of the all-new Panamera ahead of its debut at the 2016 LA Auto Show.

Porsche also launched a new entry-level engine variant for the Panamera range in the form of 3.6-litre turbocharged V6.

The new long wheelbase Executive variants feature are a wheelbase that has been stretched by 150mm to give passengers at the rear more space to stretch their legs.

The rear seats are also heated and feature multi-way powered adjustment and Porsche has also added a panoramic roof along with adaptive air suspension as standard equipment for the new long-wheelbase Panamera.

Owners can also add on a new centre console in the rear, which features two airline-style folding tables.

For those customers wanting an even more immersive entertainment experience at the rear, Porsche is also offering offers a rear seat entertainment package, featuring two 10.1-inch displays fitted to the back of the front seats. The displays can be removed from the rear seats and used as tablets if required.

The new Executive variants use the same engines as the rest of the Panamera range and will also benefit from the new engine that will power the new entry level variants of the Panamera range.

The engine, a 3.6-litre turbocharged V6 is a refined version of the engine found in the first-gen Panamera. The engine pushes 326bhp which is 20bhp more than what it produced in the first-gen Panamera and uses 17 percent less fuel. The new engine is mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Prices in the United Kingdoem start from £76,034 (Rs. 62.79 lakh), a premium of £6,622 (Rs. 5.46 lakh) over an equivalent standard wheelbase model.
