When we drove the last Panamera in GTS, 4S and even eHybrid trims, we fell in love with the power, room, and luxury. We just weren't thrilled by the awkward shape. Well, all that's been fixed with the new model, and now Porsche is introducing the new Executive version and a new engine for the base model Panamera (there's really nothing base about the $85,000 entry version. The new cars should show up at the Los Angeles Auto Show, and there's good reason to be excited about them.

Details on the new Panamera models are as follows:

  • The new base Panamera gets an all-new powerplant. The turbocharged V6 delivers 330 horsepower, 20 more than the old 3.6-liter naturally-aspirated V6 and improved fuel economy (no EPA figures have been released).
  • The base car will hit 60 mph from zero in a quick 5.4 seconds. 
  • The limo-like Executive edition adds 5.9 inches to the already roomy base car. The interior is about as handsome as any car we've ever seen with standard features like a large panoramic roof, heated comfort seats, rear adjustable seats and adaptive air suspension with electronically controlled dampers.
  • The Executive trim is available for the following trims: Panamera 4 with 330 horsepower, the E-Hybrid with 462 ponies, the 4S with 440 horses or the Turbo with 550 hp.
  • The 4S and the Turbo get rear-wheel steering and soft-close doors, while the Turbo boasts four-zone climate control, LED main headlights and ambient interior lighting.
  • Executive trim models can be outfitted with a large rear center console and Porsche's latest rear seat entertainment system with dual 10.1-inch displays in the rear of the front seat headrests.
