The second generation of the Porsche Panamera will be fitted with a newly developed eight- cylinder diesel engine for the market launch. The Panamera 4S Diesel will also be offered with all-wheel drive for the first time. The most powerful diesel engine ever to be fitted by Porsche in a production model produces a power output of 422 horsepower (310 kW) between 3,500 and 5,000 rpm and an enormous torque of 850 Nm – constantly from 1,000 to 3,250 rpm. The V8 engine generates the high power and the exceptionally powerful torque from a displacement of 3,956 cc. The high-pressure direct injection takes place via a common rail system with a maximum pressure of 2,500 bar.
The comfort and dynamics of the eight-cylinder diesel engine are comparable to those in the world of petrol engines. With a top speed of 285 km/h (177 mph), the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel is currently the world’s fastest production vehicle with a diesel engine. The Gran Turismo reaches the 100 km/h (62 mph) speed mark from stationary in 4.5 seconds (4.3 seconds with the Sport Chrono Package). It sprints to 200 km/h (124 mph) in 17.1 seconds or 16.8 seconds respectively with the Sport Chrono Package.
Top speed of 292 km/h (181 mph)
