New Porsche Panamera launched in India at Rs 1.68 crore
The outgoing V6 Panamera was priced at Rs 1.57 crore.
Porsche has only released the price for the regular rear-wheel drive V6 Panamera, which comes in at Rs 1.68 crore (ex showroom, India). The outgoing V6 Panamera was priced at Rs 1.57 crore.
The Rs 1.68 crore price tag, however, is before options, and standard equipment includes 8-way adjustable electric seats, matrix LED headlights, 6 airbags, a full-HD 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment and Porsche Communication Management (PCM) with Navigation, Mobile Phone Preparation, Audio Interface and Voice Control.
Technical specs include the 2.9 litre twin-turbo V6 engine coupled with an 8-speed PDK auto, rear-wheel drive and a two-way adaptive rear spoiler. Further technical details, including the exact power figures, are yet to be revealed.
The Porsche Panamera rivals the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S e-Performance 4-door Coupe (Rs 3.3 crore, ex-showroom).
New Porsche Panamera: no hybrid for India
The V8-powered models of the Panamera will be launched in India at a later date, however, Porsche says that India will not get both V6 and V8 hybrids as it found extremely few takers in the past. However, the GTS version – which will be revealed next year – will launch in India, making it the most powerful Panamera available; the Turbo models won’t make it here as they’re all hybrids.
This also means that the new, fully active suspension system will also not be available here as it needs the hybrid’s high voltage electrical system to operate. Thus, the Indian models will only come with the semi-active air spring setup.
Porsche Panamera long wheelbase to come later
In addition to the regular wheelbase, the Panamera will also have an executive long wheelbase model, given the high demand the previous version saw in China. The new long wheelbase model has been extended by 150mm, with the overall length stretching to 5.2 metres. Given that the previous long wheelbase Panamera was on sale in India, we expect the new model to also make its way here.
Those looking for the Sport Turismo estate version will be disappointed though, as globally, this body style will no longer be available on the Panamera. Porsche says it saw very few takers globally, and that it is limiting this estate body style to the Taycan.
