Porshe Panamera 2021 was officially unveiled on Wednesday with the sports car maker promising the perfect blending of performance capabilities with the comfort of an exclusive saloon, in it.

Highlighting the new Panamera is the addition of a plug-in hybrid option - Panamera 4S E-Hybrid which offers 434 bhp of power with a 2.9 litre V6 engine at its heart which takes the combined output to 553 bhp and with 750 Nm of torque on offer. The car maker says that the Panamera now gets a more powerful battery that significantly improves performance as well as its all-electric range which is now 54 kilometres. The Sport Chrono Package comes as standard and the car leaps to the 100 kmph mark in just 3.7 seconds.

The Panamera Turbo S, however, is likely to corner the bulk of the attention, especially because it recently set the record for being the fastest executive car around the Nurburgring. Powered by a 621 bhp engine, it clocked in at 7:29.81 with test driver Lars Kern at the wheel.

There is also a mmamoth 820 Nm of torque on the Turbo S which makes it hit 100 kmph in a blazing quick 3.1 seconds. Top speed is at 315 kmph.
