Porsche has officially unveiled the 2024 Panamera. This model, anticipated to be the last to incorporate petrol engines before the brand shifts to electric, is scheduled for Australian showroom arrivals in March 2024.

The 2024 Panamera, described by Porsche as a new generation, showcases updated exterior styling, revised underpinnings, and an interior redesign. The model maintains dimensions similar to its predecessor, indicating an evolutionary design approach rather than a complete overhaul.

The initial Australian lineup will include two models: the rear-wheel-drive twin-turbo V6 Panamera and the all-wheel-drive twin-turbo V8 Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid. This range is a reduction from the 15 models available in the outgoing lineup. Porsche has indicated that the Panamera line-up may see further expansions in the future.

Price-wise, the base Panamera is set at $227,000 plus on-road costs, marking an increase from its predecessor. The Turbo E-Hybrid is priced from $402,300 plus on-road costs, showing a decrease compared to the previous Turbo S E-Hybrid.

In terms of design, the new Panamera features adjustments to the front and rear fascias and claims a redesigned side window opening. The Turbo E-Hybrid variant can be identified by specific design elements like body-coloured bumper inserts and dark bronze exhaust outlets.

The interior of the Panamera has been updated with a layout influenced by the Taycan, including a 12.6-inch curved digital instrument cluster and a central infotainment touchscreen. An additional 10.9-inch touchscreen is optional for the front passenger. The model has transitioned several physical controls to touch-sensitive interfaces, particularly in the climate control system, while retaining some traditional switches.

The Panamera's technology offerings include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, matrix LED headlights, a wireless phone charging compartment, and various seat and climate control options.

Under the hood, the base Panamera houses a 2.9-litre twin-turbocharged V6 engine, delivering 260kW and 500Nm. The Turbo E-Hybrid combines a 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 with a 140kW electric motor and a 25.9kWh battery, offering a total output of 500kW and 930Nm.

Both models employ an eight-speed dual-clutch 'PDK' automatic transmission. The suspension system has seen updates with a new two-valve and dual-chamber adaptive air suspension standard across the range.

The 2024 Porsche Panamera is now available for orders in Australia, with the base and Turbo E-Hybrid models leading the lineup.

We invite readers to share their views on the new Porsche Panamera and its positioning in the current automotive market in the comments below.
