Next-gen diesel Panamera could be the quickest diesel production car

Next-gen diesel Panamera could be the quickest diesel production car

Porsche is currently working towards commencing the production of its second-generation Panamera. With the last Panamera to roll off the assembly line in August, it ended the seven year stint the first generation iteration accomplished.

Let us take a closer look at the next-generation diesel version. While the previous  generation never made it to production with an all-wheel drive in the diesel avatar, this is going to change for the new car. Powering the diesel Panamera is the 4.0-litre V8 bi-turbo diesel unit that makes 422 horsepower between 3,500rpm and 5,000rpm, along with an astounding 850Nm of torque from as low as 1,000 rpm. Porsche’s eight-speed PDK transmission helps transfer that power to all the wheels, and empowers the Panamera 4S Diesel to hit 100kmph in 4.5sec before hitting a top speed of 285kmph. 

An optional sport chrono package enables the car to clock quicker times to 100kmph which is a great feat especially when you factor that the 4S diesel weighs in at 2,050kg. Porsche claims that the Panamera 4S Diesel is affectively the quickest diesel engined production car in the world at the moment, and the most powerful diesel engined Porsche production car.

Stay tuned to Carwale for more on the Panamera in the months to come.
