The 2018 Porsche Panamera: Performance

2018 Porsche Panamera
There’s a reason the 2018 Porsche Panamera Sedan’s performance is legendary; it offers:

  • Up to 550 hp (gas-powered) or 680 hp (hybrid)
  • 0-60 mph acceleration in as little as 3.2 seconds
  • Adaptive damping system
  • 8-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) transmission

Needless to say, Porsche Fremont near San Leandro and Alameda couldn’t be more excited to offer the new Panamera! Its power and agility continues to astound—year after year.

Performance Features

San Jose and Alameda 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 Leandro 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.
