The new Porsche Panamera is the first Porsche to offer the most supreme standard of in-car audio quality, with the option of a High-End Surround Sound System from Burmester, the renowned Berlin audio specialist. Never before has such a large, acoustically effective experience been included in a new vehicle concept from the start, and subsequently implemented in the production vehicle.
The Burmester audio features more than 2,400 square centimetres of 'sound membranes' to deliver an audio experience very similar to that of a live concert. A total of 16 loudspeakers masterminded by 16 amplifier channels with an overall output of more than 1,000 watts provide a unique sound, complemented by an active subwoofer together with a 300 W Class D amplifier.
The superior, yet practical, driving qualities of the Porsche Panamera are borne out clearly by the luggage compartment. After opening the rear lid, the driver and passengers are able to conveniently stow four suitcases behind the rear seats - the convenient loading height means they can be placed into the luggage compartment in an upright position for easy access.
The luggage compartment capacity in the Porsche Panamera S and 4S is 445 litres or 15.6 cu ft, maximum stowage in the Panamera Turbo is 432 litres or 15.1 cu ft – and with the rear seat back rests folded, luggage capacity increases to an ample 1,250 litres or 43.8 cu ft.Published 12 February 2009
