Much criticism was levelled at Porsche when launched, the SUV Cayenne, something that happened again with the arrival of the Porsche Panamera. However, the signing of Stuttgart has a lot to thank to both models, as are the strongest sales and benefits they get for the accounts of the company. The time has given them all the reason and, precisely for that reason, are two products that Porsche should be pampered.
Since the first generation of the Panamera, was already concocting lies the possibility of offering a body more versatile, with greater load capacity, a style “shooting brake”. We had to wait, but finally here we have it under the name Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo. Its official debut will take place next week in the Geneva, but here we have all of your data.
Dimensions and habitability of the Panamera Sport Turismo
new body, says Porsche, is more versatile than any other model in the segment. The dimensions are of 5.05 meters long, 1,43 of high and 1,94 wide, with a wheelbase of 2.95 meters. It is true that wins a lot of versatility thanks to the tailgate that gives rise to a luggage compartment of 520 liters. They are only 20 more than the sports sedan, but the ease of loading (being able to knock down seats in proportions 40:20:40) and the increased interior space also are important.
And since we have quoted the interior space, it should be noted that this Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo has 5 places approved and not 4, as in the rest of the Panamera, even though a lot of us fear that the central plaza’s best to use it only in times where there is no more remedy. If the client wishes, can be set with only 4 squares.
roof Spoiler-adaptive extension (PAA)
The Porsche Panamera more practical to date also has active aerodynamic, releasing an important novelty in this segment. At the end of the roof of this car appears a spoiler, something very normal, right? What is not so normal is that this spoiler can be adjust to three different positions depending on the driving mode selected, or the driving situation, receiving the abbreviations AAP Porsche Active Aerodynamics.
If we to less than 170 km/h the spoiler will be in retracted position and with an inclination of less than 7 degrees to improve the aerodynamics and to save a few tenths of a fuel. If , we go beyond 170 km/h this spoiler varies its position to improve the aerodynamic support, and, therefore, stability. This same position will be achieved if we select the driving modes Sport, or Sport Plus, and we exceeded the 90 km/h. On the other hand, if we exceed the 90 km/h with the panoramic roof open will be placed in a third position to reduce the aerodynamic noise generated.
