The household name of luxury performance vehicles that Porsche has amply provided for years soars to new heights with its 2021 Porsche Panamera. First appearing in 2009, this full-sized luxury sedan got a glorious facelift in 2013 and then another in 2017, and the model continues to be one of Porsche’s greatest endeavors in performance vehicles that can fit a house full. New and exciting features of this classically designed car boasts space, power, technology, and an improved all-around performance. The 2021 Model not only enhances its base trim, but clears the way for an all new line.

The Porsche Panamera remains one of the more elegant luxury sedans currently on the road. Positioning itself to be the premiere performance sedan on the road in 2021 the Panamera remains one of the more lithe and adept vehicles on the roadway. Precision handling and steering with the built in and customizable stability control system pushes your experience further on even the tightest, most narrow roadways. Engineers paid attention to the Panamera chassis with the 2021 model, and refined its adaptive dampeners and 48-volt active roll systems. The driving comfort is better than ever with the Panamera with its optional air-suspension systems making every acceleration, turn, and bump barely noticeable in spite of its low profile.

The 2021 model of the Panamera hasn’t seen too many changes in aesthetic design. Like previous models, they still offer a choice of three bodies: the regular, long wheelbase executive, and the Sport Turismo Wagon. The interior has also remained remarkably unchanged, but with some modifications and updates to its technology and infotainment systems. Voice recognition has certainly been improved over the last year, with a higher resolution display screen as well as an all-around faster system. They also included integration with compatible smart phones using Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

The major changes of the 2021 Porsche Panamera are all under the hood and out of sight. The base option of the previous year’s 3.0L V-6 engine has been exchanged for a 2.9L V-6 while equalling the last year’s 330 horsepower. The 2021 lineup of Panameras excludes the Panamera Turbo for the first time, making way for vast improvements in their Turbo S model. With this particular model, many changes had to be made to hit the performance enthusiast’s dream of 620 horsepower. Larger turbochargers called for upgraded pistons and crankshafts, and fuel delivery is increase by new injectors. In this model, no detail was spared right down to the unique, upgraded spark plugs.

The hybrid lineup has expanded to include a new mid-level model, the Panamera 4S E Hybrid. Falling between the base hybrid the Panamera 4 and the top trim Panamera Turbo S Hybrid, they all got an upgraded 17.9 kWh battery. From the previous year’s 14.1 kWh battery, the 2021 has a roughly 30% longer electric range and increases its EPA rating to about 18 miles. While the base hybrid will remain at close to its 460 horsepower predecessors, the mid level hybrid reaches nearly 550 horsepower and the Turbo S E-Hybrid reaches a masterful 700 horsepower.

The changes overall to the Panamera see their biggest bump in their hybrid series from previous years, but the changes to their standard lineup are certainly nothing to be ignored. The nimble and adept nature of the Panamera combined with room for the whole family leaves this 2021 Porsche model for performance enthusiasts in any lifestyle.
