Saloon or sports car? Power or efficiency? Quite simply, there’s no decision to make. That’s because the Panamera and the Panamera 4 blend all these apparent contradictions into one sporty overall concept.
Standard features of the Panamera and the Panamera 4 include Bi-Xenon main headlights, the 18-inch Panamera wheels, the two single-tube tailpipes of the exhaust system and the automatic rear hatch.
Both models are equipped with Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) as standard. In the Panamera, it transfers engine power to the rear axle; in the Panamera 4 to all four wheels via the active all-wheel drive of Porsche Traction Management (PTM).
Other standard features of the Panamera and Panamera 4 are cruise control, Tyre Pressure Monitoring (TPM), automatic climate control and the CDR audio system. Options include Porsche Communication Management (PCM), and the BOSE® Surround Sound System or the Burmester® High-End Surround Sound System.

The 911 Carrera S Cabriolet completes the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 187 mph.
Without question, the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet has remained faithful to [...]
