The advanced fascia is different, the taillights now accommodate a full-width LED strip, the crankshaft is revised, the turbochargers are new, the aeronautics arrangement has been recalibrated—you get the idea. But what added do you absolutely charge to apperceive added than the actuality that its twin-turbo 4.0-liter V-8 agent now makes a whopping 620 application and 604 pound-feet of torque?

We didn’t analysis this bright-orange European-spec Turbo S you see here, but Porsche claims a zero-to-60-mph time of 2.9 seconds—and that’s acceptable a bourgeois appraisal accustomed that we activated a decidedly beneath powerful, 550-hp 2018 Panamera Turbo at 2.9 seconds. Top acceleration sits at a exciting 196 mph, Porsche claims, although Dodge says a Charger SRT Hellcat Redeye will allegedly do 203 mph, so there go your aloof rights.
The Panamera Turbo S hardly feels like such a lean, mean, numbers-generating apparatus on the road. It’s about too effortless in the way it goes about its business, with the V-8 whispering rather than shouting about its animal force and the council communicating actual little about the alley surface. This is a affluence auto aboriginal and a high-performance apparatus second, with costly ride affection and a chiefly abandoned cabin. Sport Plus approach quickens the responses and adds some ability to the bankrupt note, but the Panamera lacks the ball and action of the Mercedes-AMG E63 and the antic administration of the BMW M5, two high-performance sedans that exhausted the Panamera Turbo in a 2018 allegory test.
