The new 2021 Porsche Panamera range draws power from the familiar 2.9-litre V6 petrol engine which is responsible for churning out 325bhp and 450Nm of peak torque. The top-spec Panamera GTS model gets a V8 engine that has been tuned to deliver a higher 473bhp of power and 620Nm of torque.
The top-of-the-line Tubo S E-Hybrid sits on the top of the range and is also the most powerful car of the lot. There is a V8 biturbo engine that works in conjunction with an electric motor that puts out 552 bhp and 750 Nm of torque.
The electric motor juices power from a new 17.9 kWh battery which adds 59 kilometre of range in the dedicated full-electric mode. The transmission option includes an eight-speed dual-clutch unit.
