It’s been 10 years since the 1st Porsche Panamera rolled out of Porsche’s production plant. In order to celebrate their 10 year anniversary, Porsche has introduced three Panamera 10th Anniversary Special Editions, the Panamera 4 Sport Turismo 10 Years Edition, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid 10 Years Edition and Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid 10Years Edition. These Panamera 10th editions are decked with extensive standard equipment in the areas of comfort and the chassis. On the outside, there’s new 21-inch Panamera Sport Design wheels in satin-gloss White Gold Metallic and the “Panamera10” logo on the front doors, also in White Gold Metallic. In addition, standard Matrix Headlights apply to all 10th anniversary editions. Up top, there’s a panoramic roof with privacy glass.
The anniversary logo can be found in the interior on the front passenger trim panel and on the door entry guards. Upholstery is decked in black partial leather with decorative stitching in White Gold. The standard equipment include 14-way adjustable seats with Porsche crest on the head restraints, soft-close doors, digital radio and the BOSE Surround Sound system.
Safety is beefed up with these additions: PDLS Plus, Lane Change Assist, Lane Keeping Assist with traffic sign recognition and Park Assist including reversing camera.
Panamera 10th Anniversary driving dynamics
With the standard adaptive three-chamber air suspension including Porsche Active Suspension Management (PASM) and Power Steering Plus, the Panamera10 models are also ideally equipped for outstanding driving dynamics. The hybrid models of the Panamera 10 Years Edition come with an on-board charger with a charging capacity of 7.2 kW instead of the otherwise standard 3.6 kW.
The Panamera10 (2.9l biturbo/330PS) models are priced from 114,532 euros. The hybrid with the same engine and electric motor punches a total of 462 PS.
The Panamera model is currently in its second generation and manufactured entirely in the Porsche plant in Leipzig and comes in three different body variants. Over 250,000 units have been sold around the globe.
Brief history of the Porsche Panamera
In 2011, the Panamera set the stage for a new age of electromobility: as the first parallel full hybrid in the luxury class, the Panamera S Hybrid was the most economical Porsche to date despite a power output of 380 PS. Two years later, the Panamera S E-Hybrid once again led the way in the segment as the world’s first plugin hybrid. The model range continued to grow quickly, and the Panamera was extremely important for Porsche: the Gran Turismo, with an output of up to 570 PS and also available with a lengthened wheelbase from 2013.
The second generation came about in 2016, first came the sedan, followed by the long and Sport Turismo versions. The G2 is even sportier and more elegant, but with the same generous space. The attractive exterior once again houses a host of innovations, including a digitized display and operating concept. Thanks to chassis systems like the three-chamber air suspension, rear-axle steering and the PDCC Sport electromechanical roll stabilization system, the Panamera is equally at home both on the streets and on the track. The power range of the petrol engines extends from 330 to 550 PS. In addition, Porsche fully embraced electric performance with the second Panamera generation: the boost strategy adopted from the 918 Spyder allows sports car-like performance in combination with high efficiency. The top model is the Panamera Turbo SE-Hybrid with a system power of 680 PS.
