Porsche’s luxury four-door, the Panamera, is getting a significant upgrade for the 2021 model year. Gone is the old Panamera Turbo, replaced with the new 2021 Panamera Turbo S with an uprated 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 good for 620 hp and 604 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph comes in 2.9 seconds with Launch Mode.
The 2021 Panamera GTS gets 473 hp and 457 lb-ft of torque, along with special GTS styling and tuning. If you want a plug-in hybrid, meanwhile, Porsche has increased the battery capacity of its E-Hybrid range, in addition to adding a new model. The 2021 Panamera 4S E-Hybrid pairs a 2.9-liter twin-turbo V6 gas engine with an electric motor for 552 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. 0-60 mph arrives in 3.5 seconds, and the top speed is 185 mph.
Inside, there’s more active safety tech as standard, while outside there’s new styling and new wheels. The familiar trunk-spanning LED light bar is included, too. Porsche is adding two new colors, and sales will kick off in the US early in 2021, with deliveries from Spring 2021.
