Porsche for the first time presents the innovative interior concept of the Panamera four door gran turismo. The much-anticipated addition to the Porsche range of performance cars will go on sale from 12th September 2009, and will be available in its top versions with V8 power units and an interior ambience distinguished by its luxurious and high technology features.
With a continuous centre console that extends from the fascia to the rear seating area, the Porsche Panamera offers a new spatial concept for the driver and all passengers featuring optimal ergonomic seating with an individual cockpit-like environment for all four seats. The low seating position and the sporting, low-slung steering wheel ensure that direct feeling for the road so typical of a Porsche. As well as providing an optimum seating position for the driver, the Porsche Panamera provides a generous, roomy interior with exceptional head and legroom for all occupants; unique qualities in a sporting car yet essential for grand touring.
The Porsche Panamera will offer customers countless opportunities for individual interior personalisation, with numerous options and possibilities to customise the car to his or her choice. Smooth and natural leathers are available in a total of 13 colour and material combinations, including four two-tone options that can be combined wherever required with seven optional interior trim finishes including exclusive materials such as carbon fibre and Natural Olive wood.
The Porsche Panamera offers comprehensive levels of safety courtesy of driver and front passenger airbags, curtain airbags as well as - on the front seats - side and knee airbags, all ensuring maximum protection as standard features in the event of an accident. Side airbags are available for the rear seats as an optional feature.
The comfort seats featured as standard in the Porsche Panamera S and 4S are of a sporting style, and can be adjusted electrically in eight different directions for optimum comfort. In the rear, two individual seats - with a folding centre armrest - provide generous legroom and headroom, particularly for tall passengers. The Porsche Panamera Turbo combines electric seat adjustment with a Comfort Memory Package not only for the seat functions but also the electrically adjustable steering column. Further alternatives such as adaptive sports seats or rear comfort seats with powered adjustment to a wide range of different positions are likewise available as options.
Four-zone automatic air conditioning is available as a further option, providing individual adjustment of temperature, blower intensity and air distribution for each seat.
