Second generation Porsche Panamera is due for launch in India by March 2017. The new Panamera will be available as a four-door sedan in Turbo form. It will be powered by an all-new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol which develops 550hp and 770Nm. Porsche claims the car is capable of doing 0-100kph in 4.2 seconds.
According to a report on Autocar India, after Turbo is launched, it will be followed by Panamera Executive Turbo, which is a stretched version of the Panamera and features a 150mm longer wheelbase for increased rear passenger space.
By the end of 2017, the brand plans to expand the Panamera range with the introduction of more petrol and diesel variants. Also, a hybrid variant will be made available by next year. The diesel models will come with a new 3.0-litre V6 that makes 442hp and a 4.0-litre V8 which produces 850Nm, the report said.
