Porsche Unveils Its 2024 Panamera Model Lineup

The result of the Stuttgart firm bestowing its iconic 911 design with a more family-friendly four-door configuration, the Porsche Panamera initially received a mixed response when it debuted in 2009, though has since become widely accepted by Porscheistas. So much so in fact that the company continues to churn out updated iterations of the front-engined four-door to this very day — most recently culminating in its new Panamera for the 2024 model year. 

Now equipped with a two-valve, two-chamber air suspension, LED Matrix Design headlights, and a steering wheel-mounted drive mode switch all as standard, the new third-generation Porsche Panamera is currently being offered across a trio of trim levels, starting with the base-model Panamera and moving on to the Panamera 4 before finally reaching the range-topping Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. Both the Panamera and Panamera 4 models are kicked along by a new turbocharged 2.9-liter V6 engine that benefits from optimized boost pressure and revised injection volume and ignition timing. These tweaks ultimately afford the Pan and Pan 4 with 348hp and 368ft-lbs of torque — 23hp and 37ft-lbs more than the outgoing models — which results in the Panamera and Panamera 4 delivering a 169-mph top speed and 0-60mph times of 5 seconds and 4.7 seconds. 

The most noteworthy of the new trio of GT-ready four-door models, however, is undoubtedly the top-of-the-line Turbo E-Hybrid-spec. At the heart of the vehicle is a 517-hp twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 engine that’s been paired with a paddle shifter-equipped eight-speed PDK and a 139.4kW (187-hp) electric drive motor that collectively put down 670hp — all of which is sent to the ground via an advanced all-wheel drive system. The model also benefits from rear-axle steering and optional HD-Matrix Design LED headlights that feature over 64,000 pixels. In addition to the Panamera, Panamera 4, and Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid, Porsche has also rolled out a one-off 2024 model year third-gen known as the Panamera Turbo Sonderwunsch that’s based on the range-topping Turbo E-Hybrid variant, adorned in a custom, two-tone livery with real gold flakes, and made by the brand’s bespoke Sonderwunsch program. 

Available for order now with pricing starting at $99,900 and $106,900, respectively, the 2024 Porsche Panamera and 2024 Panamera 4 are both slated to hit U.S. dealerships in Spring of next year. Pricing and release dates for the range-topping 2024 Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid and special edition Porsche Panamera Turbo Sonderwunsch have yet to be revealed.
