Conceptual study for the sports car of tomorrow: Panamera Sport Turismo At the Mondial de l´Automobile in Paris, Dr. Ing. h.c. F. Porsche AG of Stuttgart is presenting the Panamera Sport Turismo -- a conceptual study for the sports car of tomorrow. Simultaneously celebrating their world premieres are the new generation of the 911 Carrera 4 with active all-wheel drive and the Cayenne S Diesel with a V8 biturbo engine. The Panamera Sport Turismo has a body concept that embodies the idea of a functional sports car that unites Porsche performance with even more everyday utility and transport flexibility; it is a four door with taut, clean lines and typical Porsche proportions. The rigorous overall concept expresses itself in the car's well thought-out interior ergonomics. The driver and the car technology are intelligently networked by a new type of user control concept with black panel technology. In addition, the conceptual study enables the use of a smart phone to condition and control many of the car's functions. For example, a special app can be used to preselect and monitor the charging time of the lithium-ion battery when it is connected to the electrical grid. The "e-hybrid" badge on the front wings identify the Panamera Sport Turismo as a plug-in hybrid. The car offers significantly extended electric mobility; it can be driven at speeds of up to 130 km/h without the internal combustion engine and to distances of over 30 km. The genes of a Porsche sports car are expressed both visually and in terms of performance. At full system power, the driver can access 416 hp (306 kW), which is good for acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in less than six seconds. The excellent interplay of the electric motor and internal combustion engine keeps NEDC fuel consumption of the parallel full-hybrid under 3.5 litres per 100 km, and CO2 emissions under 82 g/km. World premiere: 911 Carrera 4 with all-wheel drive in four model versions The new Porsche 911 Carrera 4 combines the exceptional performance and efficiency of new generation 911 Carrera cars with the dynamic advantages of the latest version of PTM (Porsche Traction Management) active all-wheel drive. The all-wheel drive layout in this newest 911 version, which emphasises the typical Porsche rear drive, guarantees a top level of dynamic performance on many different types of road surfaces and in all weather conditions. The new all-wheel drive 911 is launching on the market in four variants -- as the 911 Carrera 4 and 911 Carrera 4S, each as a Coupé and Cabriolet. The most distinctive identifying characteristic of the 911 with all-wheel drive is still its wide rear section. Compared to the 911 Carrera models with two-wheel drive, the wheel housings at the rear axle each extend outward an additional 22 mm, and the rear tyres are each ten mm wider. In addition, a red tail-light panel visually joins the two rear lights in a traditional way. Strongest diesel Porsche ever: Cayenne S Diesel with biturbo V8 Porsche is launching the most powerful diesel model in its history in the form of the Cayenne S Diesel. The 4.2-litre eight cylinder engine with biturbo charging outputs 382 hp (281 kW) and offers a maximum torque of 850 Newton metres. This lets the new Cayenne S Diesel attain top values in both dynamic performance and efficiency: The new top diesel completes the sprint from a stop to 100 km in 5.7 seconds, and its top speed is 252 km/h. In the process, it utilises its energy in an exemplary way: Its NEDC fuel consumption is just 8.3 litres per 100 km (CO2: 218 g/km). One factor contributing to this excellent value is the auto start/stop function; the new model is the world's only SUV with a diesel V8 to offer this functionality. The Cayenne S Diesel offers a driving experience that is typical of a Porsche and yet is altogether new. It is emotional like a sports car in its dynamic performance and engine sound. The smooth running properties and sound of the eight-cylinder engine reach a level that matches the properties of previous Porsche V8 engines. The Cayenne S Diesel gets its very special character from the PTM active all-wheel drive system. The direct rear-axle drive gives it the driving qualities of a rear-wheel drive vehicle -- together with all of the benefits related to handling and precision. The new car also assumes the role of a long-distance champion: based on its NEDC fuel consumption the Cayenne S Diesel -- equipped with an optional 100-litre fuel tank -- can be driven a distance of about 1,200 km without having to stop to refuel.
