Third-generation Porsche Panamera: here’s what you need to know

November 26, 2023

Air suspension for new Porsche Panamera

The new Porsche Panamera comes with 2-chamber air suspension with two-valve technology paired with the standard Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM). The use of two valves separates the rebound and compression phases in the damper. The car’s handling can be further sharpened with optional all-wheel steering.

Porsche Active Ride

For the E-Hybrid models of the new Porsche Panamera, the Porsche Active Ride suspension system is available as an option. This system has newly developed active shock absorbers – also with two-valve technology – all connected to an electrically operated hydraulic pump. Porsche Active Ride keeps the Panamera’s body level during cornering, braking and acceleration by dynamically strengthening the suspension on the side that needs it. A weight-saving single-chamber air suspension system supports this technology.

Counteract rocking and rolling tendencies

When the correct position is activated, the suspension can counteract rocking and rolling tendencies to reduce acceleration forces acting on the occupants. In this setting, the new Panamera leans into corners just as a motorcycle would. The system pulls the nose down when accelerating and the rear when decelerating, and absorbs bumps almost completely when driving quietly. At idle, the Porsche Active Ride suspension system sets the car higher on its wheels for more comfortable entry or exit.

Porsche Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid

Several powertrains are available. Let’s start with the Porsche Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid, immediately available at market launch, is a revised 4.0-liter V8 turbocharged engine. Coupled with the newly developed electric motor – which now delivers 140 kW (190 hp) – this provides a system output of 500 kW (680 hp) and 930 Nm of pulling power. The Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid sprints to 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 315 km/h. Battery capacity is now 25.9 kWh, good for an electric driving range of up to 91 kilometers. Thanks to a new 11 kW on-board charger, charging time at suitable charging points is reduced to 2 hours and 39 minutes.

Panamera and Panamera 4

Porsche has also optimized the performance of the 2.9-liter V6 turbo engine in the Panamera and Panamera 4 (also available immediately upon market launch) by increasing turbo pressure, fuel injection rate and ignition timing. The engine now delivers 260 kW (353 hp) and 500 Nm of torque – an increase of 17 kW (23 hp) and 50 Nm over its predecessor. Acceleration to 100 km/h on the Panamera now takes 5.1 seconds; top speed is 272 km/h. The all-wheel-drive Panamera 4 reaches 100 mph in 4.8 seconds and has a top speed of 270 mph.


On the outside, the new Panamera retains the model series’ distinctive lines and proportions. The Panamera Sport Turismo is a thing of the past. In the interior, the shift lever is placed directly to the right of the steering wheel. The switch for Normal, Sport and Sport Plus driving programs and the main controls are easily accessible. The driver does not have to take his eyes off the road to adjust the driving programs and assistance systems. An optional second 10.9-inch screen can be added for the passenger, with access to vehicle data, navigation and even movie streaming.

Porsche Communication Management

Porsche Communication Management (PCM) offers new ways to interact with the car. As a result, the new Panamera becomes an integral part of the occupants’ digital world. To log in with a personal Porsche ID, users need only scan a QR code displayed in the PCM with their smartphone. For enhanced usability, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto enable smartphone and vehicle data exchange. Features such as air conditioning, seat massage and ambient lighting can be controlled directly via Apple CarPlay or the Siri voice assistant.

32,000 pixels per headlight

Porsche equips the Panamera with Matrix LED headlights as standard. The high-resolution Matrix LED lighting system – with more than 32,000 pixels per headlight – is available as an option and offers completely new lighting features, such as dedicated lane lighting. The standard active speed assistant now works in conjunction with traffic sign recognition. When the system is enabled, the Panamera will not automatically drive faster than the applicable speed limit. Porsche InnoDrive including adaptive cruise control has active lane guidance and intersection assistance. A fallback aid is now also part of the range of features. Also new is that the driver no longer needs to be in the car during automatic parking. With the new Remote ParkAssist feature, the parking process can be monitored from the smartphone.
