Porsche Panamera became another machine that allowed to expand the Porsche Panamera model range of the legendary manufacturer. The first sales started in 2009, and already in 2013 restyling fastback Panamera. The car can be attributed to the Grand Tourismo class. Of course, such fantastic sales on a world scale, like the Porsche Cayenne model does not have, but there is demand for such cars.
The low roof and bonnet level forced the designers to seriously think about how to place the 8- Cylinder engine capacity of 4.8 liters. If there were no problems with the rear-wheel drive, then for the all-wheel drive Porsche Panamera had to show miracles of engineering thought. As a result, in the versions 4×4, the semiaxis of the left front wheel was passed through the cylinder block! But on this technical wonders do not end. For example, in the exhaust system there are special dampers, when opening a more straight-flowing exhaust stream, which instantly increases the power in the “Sport Plus” mode
The appearance of the Porsche Panamera is very similar to the legendary exterior of the 911 model. The truth is only a trickery of sight, because the size of the 5-door hatchback-combi is much larger. The streamlined body shape and fully flat bottom allow to achieve aerodynamic drag at 0.29 Cx. Do not forget about the active spoiler built into the trunk lid, which at high speeds presses the rear, lighter, part of the body to the road. The use of aluminum and magnesium in the power structure of the body significantly reduced the total weight of the machine.
