Global Testing Odyssey
Throughout its development journey, the new Panamera has been rigorously tested and refined, leaving no stone unturned. This cutting-edge sports saloon has undergone a comprehensive battery of test procedures across four continents. Further, demonstrating its exceptional capabilities under diverse conditions. Notably, test drives in the United States evaluated the car’s drivetrain performance at high altitudes and low-oxygen environments, while also assessing engine cooling and air conditioning under scorching heat. Scandinavia witnessed the Panamera’s prowess at freezing temperatures, while South Africa provided a challenging terrain for road conditions. In bustling Asian megacities, the car endured high humidity and grueling stop-and-go traffic, reaffirming its overall performance.
Marcel Hönemann, the development manager at Porsche, emphasized the brand’s dedication to delivering excellence. We test every new car intensively in order to meet our demands. That’s of course those of our customers all over the world. The new Panamera shall further excel, particularly in terms of performance, comfort, and acoustics.
The new Panamera, in addition to its extensively upgraded engine range, introduces several pioneering features. For the first time, buyers can opt for a high-end chassis with active damper control, offering an array of additional functionalities.
Thomas Friemuth, a Porsche representative, highlighted the exceptional capabilities of the active chassis. Further, he stated “With the active chassis, we are setting new standards. We experienced every meter of our test drives with extreme comfort on the cobblestones in Barcelona harbor and highly dynamic and agile on the winding country roads outside the city. An incomparably wide range.”
The standard chassis of the new Panamera comes equipped with semi-active components. Further, featuring innovative two-valve shock absorbers capable of independently regulating compression and rebound stages. This enhancement significantly expands the range of chassis tuning options, spanning from plush comfort to high-performance settings.
