Arriving with the finest engine and tech features and stylish exterior package, the new Porsche Panamera gets a mid-life refresh for 2021. Practical but thrilling, spacious and sporty, this new family-friendly four-seater preserves its Porsche heritage while also delivering luxury and preciseness.
Under the hood is a powerful 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 engine. Mated to an impressive PDK twin-clutch 8-speed automatic gearbox, this superb engine allows the executive hatchback to produce 330 horsepower and 450 Nm of torque that shifting between gears almost instantly allows the Panamera to accelerate from zero to 100 km/h in a claimed 5.4 seconds.
With a refreshed Sport Design, a more driver-focused cabin, and increased performance, the new Porsche Panamera claims a new level of power for the Panamera lineup.
Special Features of the 2021 Porsche Panamera
21-inch Panamera SportDesign Wheels
Coming in with a new chassis system, the 21-inch Panamera SportDesign wheels escalate the driving experience to its best. Its high-gloss finish in black also adds an aesthetic boldness to the Panamera’s sporty theme.
Black Smooth-finish Leather Interior
The new Panamera combines sporty minimalism and effortless luxury with its smooth-finish leather interior in black. Preserving its Porsche heritage is shown in this quality material, perfectly matched with the latest high-tech features, especially the large and attractive touchscreen in front.
Delivering high-performance requires reliable safety technologies that make driving on any track safer and more relaxing. This feature is packed with different essential driving assistance technologies such as Soft-close doors, Lane Keep Assist, and Head-up Display, among others.
Furthermore, drivers can easily access all of these through Porsche Connect.
Sport Chrono Package
The Sport Chrono Package offers an even sportier tuning of the chassis, engine, and transmission. With the mode switch on the steering wheel with the Sport Response button, you can choose between four driving modes: ‘Normal,’ ‘Sport,’ ‘Sport Plus’ and ‘Individual’ – for an even more personalized driving style.
In Sport mode alone, the Panamera delivers increased dynamics and more direct handling. While in Sport Plus mode, the engine becomes even more responsive.
Rear-axle steering including Power Steering Plus
The rear-axle steering increases both performance and suitability for everyday use. At low speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the opposite direction of the front wheels.
At high speeds, the system steers the rear wheels in the same direction as that of the front wheels. Rear-axle steering makes it clear that there is no contradiction between stability and agility or performance and suitability for everyday use.
The result: greater manoeuvrability and driving safety in everyday use – and a significant increase in maximum driving performance.
Tinted LED Taillights with Light Strip
Sitting between the three-dimensional tinted and LED taillights of the Panamera are the new light strip. The state-of-the-art LED technology illuminates both the light strip and taillights, making sure that the Porsche Panamera is distinguishable even at night.

And 84 individually controlled LEDs can be adjusted to suit your situation.

History of Porsche Panamera
The introduction of the Porsche Panamera in 2010 marks the beginning of shaping the brand’s history for the next ten years. Manufactured by the German automaker, the Panamera is the first sedan to ever reach production among the many prototypes built over the years.
The Panamera obtained its name, like the Porsche Carrera lineage, from the Carrera Panamericana race, while its production and assembly come straight from the factory plant in Leipzig, Germany. The first-generation Panamera offered different engines and variants, such as the S, 4S, and Turbo, and expanded its line-up starting 2011 with the S Hybrid, GTS, Turbo S diesel models.
In 2016, Porsche began launching the second-generation Panamera, which revealed a more expansive, lower, sleeker design—thoroughly addressing the first-generation’s flaw of a somewhat hunchbacked appearance.
Its new endeavors on the exterior are matched with the reimagined interior inside, packed with haptic-touch console and massive display screens. The powertrains available are all new and much upgraded, as well.
The most recent version of the Porsche Panamera continues to deliver an unmistaken Porsche silhouette and proportion. It stays true to its DNA that is athletic, streamlined, with precise contours and powerful muscles, and high-performance.
The German automaker also ensured more dynamic features and chassis system, aiming to provide an actual speed without compromising a luxurious grit for everyday usability. Its already modern centre console is partnered with the Porsche Advanced Cockpit control concept, offering quick access to the most essential functions.
The Porsche Panamera comes as a four-door car with an extensive line-up of an executive car, a full-size luxury car, a grand tourer, and a hybrid setup car. Alongside numerous variants, the Panamera is widely known for its practicality that mends with sporting character.
A trailblazer for dynamic performance and functionality, the Porsche Panamera remains unmatched in its segment. In 2012, reports showed that the United States has the largest market for Panamera with 7,614 units sold, while the Canadian market had 422 units sold.
