Our very own Al Gossett – President and CEO of Gossett Motor Cars – recently attended Porsche’s launch of the new 2018 Panamera over in Leipzig, Germany.
“Porsche Leipzig is more than a production facility. It’s also a place where you can experience the fascinating appeal of the sports car in every facet. Welcome to an exciting world where the spirit of Porsche really comes alive” said Gossett. The Panamera shares the production facility with the Cayenne and Macan.
The tagline for the new Panamera is “Courage Changes Everything.” The model originally burst on to the scene in 2009, but a lot has changed since then. The new 2018 Panamera will feature a much sportier look and feel than in previous model years. It offers Porsche Connect system capability, Apply CarPlay, and plenty other high tech safety and entertainment features.
The 4S trim uses a 2.9-liter, twin-turbo, V-6 that provides 440 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. The Turbo trim has a 4.0-liter, twin turbo, V-8 that boasts a whopping 550 horsepower and 567 pound-feet of torque. Fuel efficiency has also improved. The 2.9 liter V-6 is capable of 29.03 mph which is an 11% improvement from the 2017 edition. It also can reach 62 mph in just 4.4 seconds.
