The Stuttgart-based car-maker has now added another variant to its Indian line-up–the 2014 Porsche Panamera Turbo S, which happens to the fastest and most powerful Panamera in the international lineup. Porsche says it’s more luxurious as well.
The Turbo S produces an additional 50 hp, courtesy of two new turbochargers with larger compressors. The injection pressure is increased while the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber is prepared more effectively. As a result, torque is boosted by 50 Nm. The 4.8-liter V8 twin-turbo now produces 570 hp and 800 Nm of torque (750 Nm without overboost). While 0-100km/h takes 3.8 seconds, the top-speed is rated at 310 km/h.
According to reports, the deliveries of this car will only start in February 2014 but advance bookings have already begun. Porsche India, on its part, has still not discussed the price of the Panamera Turbo S yet. However, speculations are rife that it might carry a price tag of around Rs 2 crore.
