It is not uncommon for automakers to change tact as circumstances demand.  Back in the 80’s, Porsche had a campaign meant to position their vehicles as more of personally driven vehicles as opposed to chauffeur driven. Well, the automaker is now geared towards promoting chauffeured Panameras. In fact, the automaker has made a full lineup of the Panamera based on the standard models. Dubbed the “ 2017 Porsche Panamera Executive ”, the new model is a long-wheelbase version of the standard Panamera targeted for buyers who love to be chauffeured around.

Those competitors may offer a superior rear-seat experience, but the Panamera’s cockpit is as fetching as the sheetmetal and equipped for today, when tech and luxury are thought to be synonymous. The central analog tachometer is flanked by two 7.0-inch screens. These can be configured to ape the five round gauges in a traditional Porsche instrument panel, or you can opt to fill one side entirely with the navigation map. A 12.3-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay capability manages infotainment duties.

Of the few criticisms leveled at the 2010 – 2016 Porsche Panamera, the only one with any substance was a disdain for its baggy butt. The original four-door Porsche hatchback charged hard, scythed through curves, and swallowed highway miles whole all while appearing to wear a loaded diaper.

The 4S and Turbo trims come with soft-close doors, ambient interior lighting, larger center console as well as the automaker’s Rear Seat Entertainment system which features a 10.1 inch display on the front seats back rests. What’s more, the tablets can be detached for personal use inside or even outside the vehicle.

Ahead of the driver at front and center is the new instrument cluster. The setup uses a physical, analog tachometer in the center that is flanked by dual 7-inch displays with two virtual gauges each. The layout echoes the Porsche five-tube configuration that we’ve come to expect from the brand. The left screen is home to the speedometer and assist information. The right screen is customizable to display vehicle information, audio source, telephony, performance data or a large navigation map that occupies the entire 7-inch area.

The extra 5.9-inch wheelbase translates to greater legroom which makes it comfortable travelling in the rear seats. Compared to the standard models, the Executive Panamera features heated front seats as well as heated rear seats. The trim also adds multi-way electrical adjustment for the front and rear seats, a panoramic roof, as well as driver-adjustable air suspension system.

Underpinning the 2017 Panamera is a new front-engine, rear-drive vehicle platform shared with the VW Group. The MSB or Modularer Standardantriebsbaukasten, or “modular standard drive train system,” supports up to four different wheelbases including the new Panamera’s 116.1-inch axle-to-axle length, which is a little over an inch longer (30 mm) than the previous model. When Porsche says MSB is modular, it means that the length can be customized for other vehicles by changing just three floorpan parts at the platform level. Even the trunk is modular, consisting of a composite drop-in that supports different storage and battery configurations.

Compared with the old Panamera, the wheelbase has been stretched 1.2 inches to 116.1 inches, with the front axle moved forward half an inch relative to the firewall. The base of the windshield has been moved back 0.8 inch, and the roofline, though 0.2 inch taller at its highest point, has been pulled 0.8 inch lower as it arcs down over the rear wheels. Overall length has increased 1.2 inches, width a quarter inch. The new Panamera is bigger all around but looks smaller and more rakish. Critically, 6-foot-plus adults still comfortably fit in the rear.

The Panamera Executive comes with a 5.9-inch longer wheelbase than the standard version. Apart from this wheelbase, its exterior is identical to standard Panamera models. Overall, the executive features a sportier exterior stance that borrows numerous styling cues from 911. Each Executive model mimics the regular model it is based on. As such, the hybrid model features green brakes calipers while the Turbo features LED headlights along with the automakers dynamic lighting system.

2017 Porsche Panamera Engine

The Panamera is the first model built off the Volkswagen Group’s MSB architecture (Modularer Standard-Baukasten, or modular standard architecture with “standard” here indicating a front-engine, rear- or four-wheel-drive layout). The powertrains are new. At launch, there will be a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 in the Panamera 4S, rated at 440 horsepower, and a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8 in the Panamera Turbo, good for 550 horsepower. Europe also gets a 422-hp 4.0-liter V-8 turbo diesel; we don’t, but down the road, we will get an entry-level 3.0-liter turbo gasoline V-6 with around 350 horsepower, as well as a hybrid. A 3.0-liter V-6 TDI, which is the only carryover engine, will remain absent from the U.S. Expect a Turbo S again, this time with at least 600 horsepower, and a further entry-level model designed for maximum efficiency but not hybridized could come with rear-wheel drive. Initially, all Panameras will feature all-wheel drive and a ZF-sourced eight-speed dual-clutch automatic.

The Panamera S also uses the same engine but it is tuned to deliver more juice. The engine produces 440 hp and 405 lb-ft of torque. The engine makes the 0-60 mph dash in 4.2 seconds when the Sport Chrono package is selected. It has a top speed of 180 mph. Next up is a hybrid mill that derives its inspiration from the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid. It features a 2.9 L, V-6 paired with an electric motor backed by a lithium-ion battery. The combination is good for 462 hp and 516 lb-ft of torque. The combo powers the model to make a 0-60 mph dash in 4.4 seconds and has a top speed of 172 mph.  The hybrid mill has an all-electric range of 31 miles and can reach a top speed of 86 mph on electric power alone.

The 2.9-liter twin-turbo V-6 engine in the Panamera 4S has a more modest (heh) 440 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. It’s based on the same modular design as the V8, so it’s essentially the same block with two fewer cylinders. The displacement math works out to 2.9 liters rather than the expected 3.0, due to differences in the cylinder lining material, compression ratio and sleeves. The V8 uses an exotic plasma-coated cylinder lining that’s just 150 micrometers thin. Both engines use advanced variable valve timing systems, but the V6 lacks cylinder deactivation technology.
