In 2009 Porsche launched the Panamera and sold more than 150,000 worldwide. Today they have launched a “new” Panamera. From the pictures it looks like a huge improvement compared to the previous model, more like a 4 door new 911. As well as its new looks the Panamera is a little longer, taller and wider. Porsche have redesigned the chassis along with the suspension which has new rear axle steering. Another feature is the eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission and new engines.

The Panamera 4S Diesel is currently the world’s fastest production vehicle with a diesel engine.
