At first glance, the 2015 Porsche Panamera 4S is baffling. Here is a car that is unmistakably a saloon, yet without a doubt a Porsche. How can two radically different concepts be carried out on the same frame? And ask yourself why a Porsche can’t be comfortable, or why a long-wheel base sedan can’t also embody dominant performance, and then you will be a step closer to understanding the Panamera 4S.
Distinguished Body Style Boasts Incredible Power
Clad in Rhodium Silver Metallic paint, this Panamera 4S cuts a striking figure: its long, gently sloping roofline arch back gracefully from the front windscreen all the way to the rear. A fully galvanized, lightweight bodyshell made from calculated percentages of steel and aluminum ensures that extra length does not equal extra weight. Fitted with the Porsche Dynamic Lighting System (PDLS), it looks forward with an imposing glare from stepped LED headlights.
The vehicle accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in only 4.6 seconds, a testament to Porsche’s 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6. With a smaller displacement than previous iterations, the engineers were able to draw even more power from the machine—420 horsepower and 384 lb.-ft. of torque. Active all-wheel drive allows for the most efficient conversion from power to pure momentum.
A Difficult Choice Between Riding and Driving
Inside, the Panamera 4S seats four occupants on a combination of smooth-finish and textured leather in a tandem of cool agate grey and contrasting cream colors. A continuous center console divides the cabin, offering climate controls to all passengers. And no matter how the driver and passenger conduct themselves, they can relish Porsche seats designed for comfort.
Passengers will never feel at odds with their surroundings thanks to air suspension with Porsche Active Stability Management (PASM). The system allows this four-door sedan to glide while in Comfort mode, but also offers SPORT and SPORT PLUS settings for a more aggressive feeling.
