World Premiere of Porsche's New Panamera at Auto Shanghai 2009

    SHANGHAI, April 20 /CNW/ -- Porsche chose Auto Shanghai 2009 for the
world premiere of the brand new Panamera. This unique four-door Gran Turismo
appeared among 15 iconic Porsche cars on a state-of-the-art exhibition stand,
where guests also witnessed the Asia premiere of Cayenne GTS Porsche Design
Edition III, alongside the national debut of the Cayenne S Transsyberia.

    Three model variants of the Panamera will be entering the market, each
features a powerful 4.8-litre V8 engine and Direct Fuel Injection, with
Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe fitted as standard. The Panamera S accelerates
to 100 km/h in only 5.4 seconds using its 400 bhp power unit, whilst also
boasting a highly economical fuel consumption rate of just 10.8 litre/100 km.
The Panamera 4S utilises this same engine in conjunction with active all-wheel
drive to reach 100km/h in 5 seconds flat, whilst sacrificing little of its
efficiency at just 11.1 litre/100 km. The top-end Panamera Turbo likewise
features all-wheel drive as standard, although new biturbo technology ensures
this model yields a maximum output of 500 bhp and sprints from a standing
start to 100 km/h in a breathtaking 4.2 seconds. Even at this level of
performance, fuel consumption remains an impressive 12.2 litre/100 km. The
sleek silhouette of all these Panamera models also disguises a luxurious and
spacious interior, affording ample roominess with four individual seats, and a
variable loading space for storing large quantities of luggage.
    Auto Shanghai was also the stage for the Asia premiere of the Cayenne GTS
Porsche Design Edition III, that comes with exclusive Lava Grey Metallic
paintwork, bi-xenon headlights as standard, dark glazed rear windows and
unique GTS designation, and the China debut of the new Cayenne S Transsyberia.
    The new Panamera model series will be available in Porsche Centres across
China in early 2010. The starting price for the Panamera S is RMB 1,843,000,
for the Panamera 4S it is RMB 1,926,000, while the Panamera Turbo begins at
RMB 2,490,000. The Cayenne GTS Porsche Design Edition III will arrive in China
this summer, entering the market at RMB 1,893,000. The Cayenne S Transsyberia,
meanwhile, looks set to be released in May, at a starting price of RMB
