2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S

It is one of the world’s fastest sedans.

Porsche is trying to up their stakes in the performance sedan market. The 570-horsepower Panamera Turbo S model is aimed directly at rivals from Maserati, Bentley, Aston Martin and Mercedes-Benz. The 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S is scheduled to officially break cover during the Tokyo Motor Show.  Porsche debuts first plug-in hybrid with green version of its 2014 Porsche Panamera S with ultra high-end Platinum Edition. There is a new top dog in the Panamera range. The 2014 Panamera Turbo S has a 50 horsepower edge over the standard Panamera Turbo model, thanks in large part to a pair of new turbochargers.

These help ram more air into the combustion chambers at all levels of speed. Injection pressure has also been increased, by 20 bars to 140 bars and the turbocharged V-8 engine benefits from new aluminum alloy pistons and specially coated piston rings. All in all, the Panamera Turbo S delivers 570-hp and 553 lb-ft of torque from 2,250 to 5,000 rpm. An overboost function allows torque to temporarily jump to 590 lb-ft. Porsche states the new Panamera Turbo S has a top speed of 192 mph, though the German automaker is famously conservative when it comes to performance figures. Don’t be surprised if that figure is closer to 200 mph. With a top speed of 192 mph, this is the view most other vehicles will have of the outrageously fast Panamera Turbo S.

Interestingly, the Turbo S model can be combined with a longer wheelbase for limo-like rear comfort. The Panamera Turbo S Executive rides on a wheelbase that is 5.9 inches longer, which translates to an additional 4.7 inches of rear legroom. Rear seat passengers are also treated to privacy blinds, along with seats that have heating and cooling functions fitted as standard equipment. The Panamera Turbo S will carry a base price of $180,300 (excluding delivery charges) and the Executive version will start at $200,500. Both models are scheduled to appear during the Tokyo Motor Show.
