Porsche recently launched the all-new Panamera Turbo in India at a starting price of Rs 1.93 crore (ex-Maharashtra). While Porsche has revamped the entire design of the car, it has also revamped almost every aspect of the car. It is currently available in two other variants – the Porsche Panamera Turbo Executive and the Turbo Sport Turismo. We just drove the standard Porsche Panamera Turbo and were quite surprised by how well it drives. Here’s a thorough look at the car through images from our road test review.

The Porsche Panamera looks least 911-like from the front, thanks to the wider profile and the larger headlamps

From the side and rear however, the 911 silhouette on the 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo is unmistakable. This is thanks to the high haunches and the sloping roof

The way the tail lights are linked by the LED strip only helps relate it to the 911’s rear

This particular set of 20-inch wheels are not standard. They’ll cost you another Rs 1 lakh!

 

The 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo's V8 soundtrack sounds very nice from the outside. However, from the driver's seat, it isn't the best one we've heard

The new V8 features a hot-V turbocharger, and produces 550PS from 5,750-6,000rpm and 770Nm between 1,960-4,500rpm

The 12.3-inch touchscreen on the 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo offers a whole lot of information! However, reaching the far end of the screen from the driver's seat is a bit of a stretch

It's quite an experience to drive a two-tonne, 5-metre long luxury sedan that feels like a sportscar!
