2019 Porsche Panamera Turbo Sport: 5 Things to Know
“In the beginning I looked around and could not find quite the car I dreamed of. So I decided to build it myself.” These are the words of Ferry Porsche that, for over 65 years, have served as a guiding star for everything Porsche does. Every engine, every gear, every contour, every detail of every Porsche ever made has had this goal at its heart. The all new 2019 Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo is a genuine Porsche sports car perfectly suited for an exhilarating race around the track or a relaxing weekend adventure. Driving it is an experience you won’t soon forget. This wonder of a super car in a luxury wagon body is most certainly the car of Ferry’s—and your—dreams.
This car is fast. Like, take-your-breath-away, hold-onto-your-seat, thrill-your-friends fast. The Turismo boasts a twin turbo 4.0 liter V-8 550hp engine that rates 567 lb-ft torque with track speeds that top out at 188mph. Acceleration is exhilarating in this car, taking you from 0-60 in a mere 3.6 seconds. There’s nothing forced or artificial about the sound of this engine; when you open it up and pass other drivers, they’ll feel power as you go by. You’ve never had so much fun driving a wagon.
Sure, the Panamera Sport Turismo is big and long; it’s a wagon after all and size is part of its allure. That said, there’s nothing unwieldy about this car; when you get behind the wheel, its nimbleness and agility quickly belie its size. Expert Porsche engineering is the explanation for the contradiction. The Panamera is fitted with the Porsche Traction Management System (PTM). This innovative clutch system works to ensure that drive force is always optimally distributed regardless of driving conditions, giving you unmatched acceleration on long strips, tight corners, and roads with varying traction. High-tech sensors constantly check variables such as wheel rotation, longitudinal and lateral acceleration, and steering angles and distribute drive force to the front and rear axles accordingly. The combination of the PTM system plus the Porsche Chassis Control Roll system that keeps the car flat on tight corners makes the Panamera Sport quick, responsive, and stable in all conditions.
Not every day is a day for the racetrack. In fact, most days require a smoother ride, and the Panamera Sport Turismo totally delivers. There are a variety of driving modes to suit differing tastes and conditions and, with the right settings and the optional air suspension, the ride in the Turismo is as smooth and pliable as any luxury vehicle. There’s ample head and leg room for four adults to ride comfortably in the car and the interior design is clean and distinctively Porsche with nothing jarring or distracting. With room in the back for your stuff, you can take this super car to the grocery store, the office, or on any adventure you can imagine.
Technology’s not just under the hood in the Panamera Sport Turbo. The Turismo features Apple CarPlay and Porsche Connect. Porsche Connect extends the intelligent features of your Panamera with additional functions and apps designed to optimize your experience before, during, and after your journey. From weather and traffic conditions, to parking tips and navigation helps, Porsche technology helps you get through your day. Control your car remotely from your phone, find the perfect entertainment for a night on the town, or simply find the most efficient route for your morning commute—it’s all possible with high-tech solutions from Porsche Connect.
This car is drop-dead gorgeous. It’s eye-catching design highlights graceful contours, dramatic horizontal lines, and modern details everywhere you look. There are no bad angles anywhere, just sleek design from stem to stern. It’s hard to believe, but this wagon is sexy. Look at it. Sit in it. You’ll love everything about it.
The 2019 Panamera Turbo Sport Turismo is the car of your dreams. It has everything Ferry Porsche demanded in a car—performance, luxury, comfort, and style, plus a dash of that inimitable Porsche spice. It’s a genuine sports car built for real life. Don’t compromise or settle; choose Panamera and have it all.
