Third-gen Porsche Panamera India prices announced; starts from ₹1.68 crore
Just days after its global debut, Porsche AG has announced prices for the third-generation Panamera in India. The 2024 Porsche Panamera is priced from ₹1.68 crore (ex-showroom, India) onwards for the V6 rear-wheel drive model. This will be the only engine option available initially and the new V8 hybrid won’t be making it here. The more powerful GTS will arrive sometime next year.
Bookings for the new generation Porsche Panamera should begin in a few days as is the norm for the automaker in the country. Meanwhile, deliveries will begin in a few weeks from now. The automaker has traditionally opened order books much earlier in India, soon after the models’ global debut. The new-gen Panamera will arrive only in the sedan guise with the Sport Turismo now discontinued globally.

Another much-talked-about feature on the new Panamera is its new fully active suspension. The new PDCC-equipped suspension allows for more control over the pitch, dive and roll.
