San Jose and Livermore car shoppers expect nothing less than exceptional performance technology from a Porsche—and the Panamera sets the bar. Here’s a handful of its standard and available features:
- 8-Speed PDK Newly developed, this transmission keeps revs low at high speeds for greater efficiency, and brags lightning-fast gear shifts and paddle shifters.
- Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM): Available with three modes—Normal, SPORT, and SPORT PLUS—PASM alters the damping force on each wheel for a smooth ride over San Ramon roads.
- Optional Sport Chrono: This package tunes the powertrain for even faster acceleration times, and adds an exclusive kit with a digital and analog stopwatch, performance display, and much more.
