PORSCHE PANAMERA

INTRODUCTION

So here comes the updated Porsche Panamera in India, the ultra-luxury carmaker has launched the all new Porsche Panamera in five variants – four in petrol and one in diesel. This new beast claims to be the most powerful, super luxurious and the fastest in the entire Porsche Panamera range being offered in India. Porsche Panamera does not follow the crowd making conventional sports car, rather it can seat 4 in a royal manner and yet thrill with its fast pace

.With the launch of upgraded Porsche Panamera in India, the auto enthusiasts can look forward to a sports car which shall satiate their need for speed. The Porsche Panamera price in India ranges from Rs. 1.2 – 2 crores. The designers have beautifully merged the older characteristics with new modifications making it more elegant than ever before.

Looking at the Indian buying behaviour, the Porsche Panamera in India can be a hot property with five models that include Panamera Turbo, Petrol V6 variants, Panamera GTS, Panamera 4 and the uber cool Panamera Diesel. The pick of the lot for Indian buyers will be the Porsche Panamera Diesel with figures of 6.3ltrs per 100km and 250bhp of raw power. Do not go easy thinking that it lacks power in its V6 engine, as it manages the brutal force with its torque which when compared to Audi R8 is on the winning side. Porsche Panamera in India comes up with new visible changes in the interiors. It is a sheer delight to sit inside the car with developments like Porsche Stability Management System. On the outside it looks completely Porsche and even in the alien world it can never have a mistaken identity.

The front suspension has got better accompanied with larger chassis mounts which adds to stiffness. LED daytime running lamps are now a part of the headlights and there are larger air intakes. The most evident renovation is the licence plate bracket which has been moved lower.

There are new developed tyres with 18 inch wheels with better suspension and driving comforts. With these exterior alterations, the four door car is definitely a potential when it comes to buying Porsche Panamera in India.

INTERIOR

INTERIOR

Porsche Panamera launched in India as the unconventional sports car that can accommodate four in a super comfortable pose with individually adjustable seats. The rear seats are softer when compared to the front ones and one gets fully controllable air conditioning. The boot is big enough to fill in for daily use when compared to other sports cars. Seating inside this car gives you the royal feeling with centre console bisecting the cabin and having most of the switchgear and a standard colour touch screen dashboard. The cabin might be a bit button heavy in areas but the controls are easy to get use to and the cabin materials feel just perfect.

Porsche Panamera in India boasts of an audio control mounted on the steering, with a touch of leather upholstery as well as satellite navigation, Bluetooth, radio and climate control system. The rear gets individual entertainment system with a touchscreen and wireless headsets. It’s a driver’s delight with the driving position being high providing clear visibility and then there is Porsche Stability Control to give you better grip on sharp bends which you can encounter everywhere in India.

 

ENGINE & PERFORMANCE

All the Porsche Panamera in India variants come with technologically enhanced power mills that assists in fuel management. Coming down to the most awaited discussion on acceleration, the Porsche Panamera models can accelerate from 0-100kmph in a mere 6.8 seconds, with maximum average speed of 260kmph. The Panamera 4 can accelerate to 100kmph in just 6.1 seconds, while the diesel model with variable turbine geometry can manage 0-100kmph in 6.8 seconds with a maximum torque of 550Nm. The highest among all variants of Porsche Panamera in India, the Porsche Panamera Turbo has 7 – speed Porsche Droppel kupplung gearbox which can speed up to 100kmph in 3.8 seconds with a maximum speed of 306kmph.
Talking about the diesel engine for the Porsche Panamera India lovers, you start it and you are in for a surprisingly low noise as it is refined with very little vibration. For typical Indian roads, the Porsche Panamera in India soaks up the bump pretty well with a ground clearance of 143mm. To maximise the efficiency there is the extra poke with standard eight speed gearbox. As you hit the Sport button the throttle response is evident when compared to the softest setting. The steering is light at low speeds but as you speed up the steering that gets heavy, giving you control along with confidence over the car. You can enjoy the Panamera on high speed roads where it cruises just perfectly with its excellent suppression of both wind and road noise. Coming on to the motor, it has a very wide power band which when combined with weighted controls makes the Porsche Panamera in India easy to drive in traffic. The eight speed gear box makes the ride smooth and the acceleration thrilling.

BRAKING AND SAFETY

You feel the need to have a bit better braking in this car as at high speeds you need more force. On the safety front it works fine as it doesn’t fear the sight of a bend and sticks to its line. The brakes are sensitive and there is the Anti – Lock Braking System along with electric parking brakes that can be activated manually as well. The front axle has the new generation brake caliper with the developed brake booster which gives car more stability. The Porche Ceramic Composite Brake is fitted into the turb of Porsche Panamera.
Talking in terms of safety, there is the Porsche Dynamic Light System which includes the Bi – Xenon headlights with headlight cleaning system and automatic range control with illumination that is uniform at low and high beams, thereby helping the drive see inexplicably during night driving.

CONCLUSION

In terms of looks the car is totally Porsche and in terms of performance its better than before with better torque and mileage especially with the diesel engine. The interiors are just perfect to make the Indians feel like rulers of the road. There is driving comfort on Indian roads with sense of speed and the diesel engine makes it economical for the high class Indians. For the Porsche Panamera Indian buyers the pricing in India could be a bit high.

Things to keep in mind before Buying Porsche Panamera

 

When buying a new car in general one must look for things like body panels that are out of line, or load bearing beams that seem to have been damaged. The next thing to check whether the paint is original or it has been repainted, a quick check under concealed plastic panels is a great way to check for unmatched paint. Another thing to check for is underbody rust in humid or sea adjacent areas.

A good way to check if the car has been rear-ended is by checking the boot. Flip open the spare wheel cover and remove the wheel completely. If the car was repaired after an accident the floor will have visible signs as the surface wouldn’t be smooth as it would in an undamaged car.

In the end, always remember to check for complete documentation including service records. Also, do check with the insurance company for any past claims, which will make you aware of the accidents the car has been involved in. Last but not the least, get the car checked from a trusted workshop before closing the deal.
