Porsche Panamera Parts [2017-2018] Second Generation
Also referred to as the second-generation Panamera, it was revealed in Berlin in 2016. It was Codenamed 971, and compared to its predecessor, the second generation was 35 mm longer, 5mm wider and 5mm taller. It also had a slightly longer 30mm larger wheelbase.
Interior Design of the Second Generation Panamera
On the inside Porsche redesigned the dashboard, redoing it with sensitive touch surfaces which mainly replaced the last generation’s button reliant layout. There was a middle-mounted tachometer, which was a throwback to the classic 1955 Porsche 356 A.
The newly designed second-generation Panamera also included two seven inch displays instead of dials, in addition to a 12-inch touchscreen with online satellite navigation, voice control and Apple CarPlay support built into it.
The new engine under the bonnet the Porsche introduced a new engine range. Only the 4S Diesel, 4S and 4S Turbo were available during launch. However, subsequent variants later became available.
Design Language and Styling
The new Panamera or second-generation did away with the long criticized hatchback style, in favour of a new design that brought it closer to the Porsche 911’s design language. The rear LED light bar ran the full width of the back, along with a creased tail and beautiful upper pumper. The improved design if anything helped distinguish the Panamera from others as being a sports-oriented vehicle. That distinction alone made many fans of the brand happy.
The Panamera was an impressive vehicle delivering 0–60 mph in just 3.2 seconds. It was well designed, and for many fans, the facelift was something they had waited for long enough.
The company sold a large number of units, across the US, Canada and the UK, until its successor was introduced to the public in late 2018. That signalled a stop for the production of the second-generation Panamer
