The new 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S recently showcased its track capability ahead of its arrival in the US dealerships. On Porsche Cars North America’s local track, the Michelin Raceway Road Atlanta, the sports car set a benchmark lap time of one minute and 31.51 seconds.

Professional racing driver Leh Keen was enlisted by Porsche to showcase the driving capabilities of the new Panamera on the 4.0-kilometre race track. This achievement follows the benchmark lap time achieved by the Taycan Turbo S at the same track last year. "The stability (of the Panamera) gave me a ton of confidence to use every bit of the asphalt and curbs," said Keen. "And yet the car has a completely different and more refined and relaxed character on the highway."
