World Premiere of Porsche's New Panamera at Auto Shanghai 2009

SHANGHAI, Apr. 20 /PRNewswire-Asia-AsiaNet/ --

    Porsche chose Auto Shanghai 2009 for the world premiere of the brand new Panamera. This

unique four-door Gran Turismo appeared among 15 iconic Porsche cars on a state-of-the-art

exhibition stand, where guests also witnessed the Asia premiere of Cayenne GTS Porsche

Design Edition III, alongside the national debut of the Cayenne S Transsyberia. 

    Three model variants of the Panamera will be entering the market, each features a powerful

4.8-litre V8 engine and Direct Fuel Injection, with Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe fitted as

standard. The Panamera S accelerates to 100 km/h in only 5.4 seconds using its 400 bhp

power unit, whilst also boasting a highly economical fuel consumption rate of just 10.8 litre/100

km. The Panamera 4S utilises this same engine in conjunction with active all-wheel drive to

reach 100km/h in 5 seconds flat, whilst sacrificing little of its efficiency at just 11.1 litre/100 km.

The top-end Panamera Turbo likewise features all-wheel drive as standard, although new

biturbo technology ensures this model yields a maximum output of 500 bhp and sprints from a

standing start to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 4.2 seconds. Even at this level of performance, fuel

consumption remains an impressive 12.2 litre/100 km. The sleek silhouette of all these

Panamera models also disguises a luxurious and spacious interior, affording ample roominess

with four individual seats, and a variable loading space for storing large quantities of luggage. 

    Auto Shanghai was also the stage for the Asia premiere of the Cayenne GTS Porsche Design

Edition III, that comes with exclusive Lava Grey Metallic paintwork, bi-xenon headlights as

standard, dark glazed rear windows and unique GTS designation, and the China debut of the

new Cayenne S Transsyberia.

    The new Panamera model series will be available in Porsche Centres across China in early

2010. The starting price for the Panamera S is RMB 1,843,000, for the Panamera 4S it is RMB

1,926,000, while the Panamera Turbo begins at RMB 2,490,000. The Cayenne GTS Porsche

Design Edition III will arrive in China this summer, entering the market at RMB 1,893,000. The

Cayenne S Transsyberia, meanwhile, looks set to be released in May, at a starting price of RMB
