Back in 2009, Porsche surprised the automobile industry with a sports car in disguise of a luxury saloon. Featuring four doors, four seats, an unmistakable silhouette and performance figures of a two-seater sports car, the Panamera launch was an instant success. A decade later, Porsche India is celebrating this achievement with the release of the Panamera 4 10 Years Edition. The special model features particularly extensive standard equipment for further enhanced comfort and performance at no extra costs. It has also been enhanced with special design highlights, exclusively available for this anniversary edition.
“With more than 250,000 Panamera cars delivered around the world since its launch, our luxury saloon has established itself as a coveted model in the last decade. The new Panamera 4 10 Years Edition represents this remarkable achievement. In a market where many luxury vehicles are chauffeur driven, it’s rewarding for me to see the Panamera remains as the only prestige saloon in our market which is focused equally towards the driver as well as its passengers. It’s a true sports car for the drive to the office and fun on the track,” said Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India.
Stylish satin-gloss White Gold Metallic, 53.34 cm (21”) Panamera Sport Design wheels instantly identify this as an anniversary model that is further accentuated by White Gold Metallic “Panamera10” logos on the front doors. The same logo welcomes occupants as they step in with an inlay on the door entry guards as well as on the front passenger trim panel. Black partial leather is used throughout the interior, complemented by decorative stitching in White Gold to create a high-quality impression inside.
Aside from the signature elements, the Panamera 4 10 Years Edition includes a host of additional comfort and safety features, such as LED matrix headlights including PDLS Plus, Lane Change Assist, Park Assist, including a reversing camera. Additionally, a panoramic sunroof, 14-way comfort seats with the Porsche crest on the head restraints, soft-close doors, digital radio and a BOSE® Surround Sound system are also included as standard equipment.
The Panamera 4 10 Years Edition also features adaptive three-chamber air suspension, including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Power Steering Plus as standard. The all-wheel drive Panamera 4 is powered by a 2.9-litre, biturbo V6-engine developing 321bhp. The model accelerates to 100 kmph in 5.3 seconds with a top speed of 262 kmph.
The Panamera 4 10 Years Edition model is now available for sale in India at a basic retail price starting at Rs 1.6 crores (ex-showroom).
