Sime Darby Auto Performance hails the new Porsche Panamera as an exclusive saloon with a sporty performance, which we will definitely concur. The enhanced design of the new Panamera model is nothing short of a visual delight that retains all the pedigree of a 911 yet comforts the viewer with its larger presence.
With a price tag of just over RM1 million, the Panamera featuring the familiar 2.9 litre V6 biturbo engine and generates an output of 243 kW (330 PS) and a maximum torque of 450 Nm, pushing the 0 to 100 km/h test run in just 5.4 seconds. Achieving top speed is 270 km/h which we all know not many owners are tempted to but are satisfied that their vehicle is able to, the Panamera comes with a improved performance feature from its predecessor.
Malaysian buyers can now enjoy the Porsche Connect function for the first time, this allows drivers with online connection giving additional autonomy in terms of control.
Having become a runaway success for Porsche, the saloon model is a desirable venture for those seeking to experience top notch comfort yet aware of the power available under the hood, if thrills are required.
Pricing for the new Panamera starts from RM 1,026,735* with SST exemption.
