The controversially styled four-door Panamera is slowly being unveiled by Porsche, this week revealing the plush interior along with performance specifications and pricing.

The cabin can accommodate up to four passengers, each with an individual power-adjustable sports seat, surrounded by a range of luxury materials and high class creature comforts.

Customers can choose from 13 different colour and material combinations on offer, including four bi-colour options matched with seven optional interior trims such as carbon and open-pore wood.

Accommodating the four passengers is an appropriate four-zone automatic climate control system together with a new premium audio system developed together with Germany’s Burmester.

In total, 16 speakers are scattered throughout the cabin through 16 amplifier channels with more than 1000W – with a further 300W supply for the subwoofer alone.

Luggage space for the Panamera S and 4S is 445-litre, while the Panamera Turbo is slightly hindered with only 432-litre of space – although with the rear seats folded down, storage space across the range extends to 1250-litres.

Standard safety features incorporate driver and front passenger airbags, curtain airbags as well as side and knee airbags for the front seat passengers with additional side airbags available at the rear as an optional feature.

With power sent to the rear wheels, the entry-level Panamera S, which boasts a 294kW 4.8-lite V8 engine, manages zero to 100km/h in just 5.4 seconds through Porsche’s PDK transmission and on to a top speed of 283km/h.

The all-wheel-drive system of the Panamera 4S shaves another 0.4 seconds off the time of its rear-drive sibling – completing the sprint in 5.0-seconds flat from a standstill.
