2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S facelift revealedThu, 31 Oct 2013
The 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S (pictured) debuts in Tokyo next month.
It’s six months since Porsche revealed a facelift for the Panamera and now, ahead of its debut at the Tokyo Motor SHow, we get the final piece of the Panamera range’s updates – the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S. The cosmetic updates for the Panamera Turbo S are similar to those across the rest of the range, with small tweaks to the nose and front lights and bigger changes to the back with a bigger rear window and various tweaks to make the dog-humping back end of the Panamera a little more appealing.
Also on offer is the Porsche Panamera Turbo S Executive, a stretched version of the Panamera adding an additional 150mm in the wheelbase for more back seat wallow room.
Porsche has also had a play with the Turbo S’s twin turbo V8, which gets new turbochargers, a higher pressure fuel injection system, new aluminium pistons and a speacial coating for the pistons rings, all of which adds up to an extra 20bhp fro the Turbo S.
Despite the extra power, Porsche aren’t claiming any improvement in the 0-62mph – just 3.8 seconds – but the top speed has gone up to 193mph.
The 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S (and the Turbo S Executive) will debut at the Tokyo Motor Show next month and go on sale in the UK in early 2014.
