2017 Porsche Panamera Bound for Showrooms in January, Priced at $101,040

ATLANTA — The redesigned 2017 Porsche Panamera luxury sedan will roll into Porsche dealerships in January, sporting a fresh look, new engines and a $101,040 starting price.

The price is for the base 2017 Panamera 4S and reflects a $1,690 increase over the 2016 base model.

The top-of-the-line 2017 Panamera Turbo is priced at $147,950, up $5,600 over the comparable 2016 model.

Pricing includes a $1,050 destination charge.

Both models are equipped with an all-wheel-drive system.

Option prices are not available at this time, a Porsche spokesman told Edmunds. New options include a panoramic tilt roof, massage seats, ambient lighting and a 3d sound system from Burmester.

Targeting the Audi A8, BMW 7 Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the 2017 Panamera enters the fray with what Porsche describes as a "sharpened" look. It is longer, wider and slightly higher than the 2016 model, but is designed to appear to hug the ground.

Two new twin-turbo gasoline engines with direct injection will be available at launch. 

The Panamera Turbo is equipped with a 550-horsepower twin-turbo V8 engine that delivers 30 more hp than the previous model. It sprints from zero to 60 mph in 3.6 seconds and has a top speed of 190 mph.

The Panamera 4S is equipped with a 440-hp twin-turbo V8 that delivers 20 more hp than the previous model. It reaches 60 mph in 4.2 seconds and has a top speed of 180 mph.

Both feature a new eight-speed Porsche dual-clutch transmission.

The EPA has not rated the 2017 Panamera.

The cabin gets a new interior design with a futuristic look. Details include a 12.3-inch touchscreen packed with infotainment features, including Apple CarPlay capability.

Driver-assistance systems include a new Night Vision Assistant that uses a thermal imaging camera to detect people and large animals.

Edmunds says: Luxury shoppers seeking a sedan with incredible performance and a striking look will want to check out the 2017 Panamera.
