And not to be unfounded, the developers sent the new Panamera Turbo S ahead of time to the Nürburgring track, where it set a record for passing the Nordschleife for cars in its class, displacing the former leader of the Mercedes-AMG GT63 S.

Body

The exterior of the model has not changed much, and the easiest way to distinguish the new Porsche Panamera in 2021 is by the rear optics, which received a solid strip of the brake light that stretched across the entire width of the stern.

The transfer of the Sport Design package to the base status can be considered excellent news, which initially makes the appearance of all modifications more sporty, although the Turbo S has its own bumpers with enlarged air ducts, and for the GTS — also darkened rear optics.

Disks that have increased the number of available «designs» to ten can be considered as updates, while two additional shades have appeared in the body color scheme.
