2024 Porsche Panamera Brings More and More Tech to 3rd Gen Sedan

New Panamera arrives

  • Panamera will have four E-Hybrid models

  • Launches with more powerful base V6

There’s a new Porsche Panamera in town. The third generation of the Executive Express gets new suspension tech and will eventually have four hybrid models. And it starts with a more powerful base V6 and a Turbo that can almost out-boost last year’s Turbo S.

Porsche teased us with news of the four new E-Hybrid models, but it revealed just one. The 2025 Porsche Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid gets a revised version of the company’s 4.0L twin-turbo V8 and has a new and more powerful 187 hp electric motor. The total system output is 670 hp, just 20 shy of the old Turbo S E-Hybrid, and it can hit 100 km/h in 3.2 seconds. Turbo models like the E-Hybrid will also get Porsche’s new matte grey Turbonite badges and trim.

Before even that one arrives, though, we get the base 2024 Porsche Panamera and Panamera 4. They get a 2.9L twin-turbo V6 just like before, but output climbs 23 hp and 37 lb-ft to 348 and 368 total. That one can hit 100 km/h in 5.1 seconds in rear-drive form or 4.8 with AWD.

Porsche has made the car look wider, though it’s the same dimension as last year. The car is longer, though, now 5,052 mm long (5,202 for Executive). The styling is more evolution than revolution, but that’s what we expect from the brand.

Inside, the experience is much closer to the Taycan electric sedan. The screen is flat, the shifter is beside the dash, and there is a new passenger-side screen that will let you stream videos.

Every Panamera gets air suspension, with even the base car getting a two-chamber system with active suspension management. The new system offers a wider range between soft and firm for more comfort and more performance. Rear axle steering for maneuverability is optional.

E-Hybrid models will offer Porsche Active Ride. This new system adds active hydraulically-pressurized shocks to the air suspension system. The pressure pump can boost the shocks to eliminate roll, pitch, and dive while maintaining ride comfort.

Matrix LED lighting will also be standard. The 32,000-pixel system can light up the road more than half a kilometer away, with dedicated lane brightening so it doesn’t blind other traffic. Porsche is also changing the drive assist modes for enhanced safety and added remote parking from outside of the car.

The 2024 Porsche Panamera is on sale now, set to arrive at dealers in the spring. Pricing starts from $116,300 or $120,600 for the Panamera 4. 2025 Panamera Turbo E-Hybrid timing and pricing will come later.
