Porsche is set to unveil a number of new Panamera models at the forthcoming Los Angeles Auto Show, which opens on Friday.
The German marque will introduce a new entry-level model, as well as a new all-wheel-drive Panamera 4.
Both vehicles will utilise the same 326bhp, turbocharged V6, which has been developed especially for the new cars.
Porsche is also going to reveal a number of long-wheelbase “Executive” versions of the Panamera. These cars have had their wheelbases stretched by 150mm, and gain more equipment as standard.
Executive Panameras are aimed at the chauffeur-driven market and will gain such standard features as a large panoramic roof, heated seats with multi-way electrical adjustment in the front and back, and adaptive air suspension.
The Panamera 4S Executive and Turbo Executive both gain additional standard features such as rear-axle steering and soft-close doors. The Panamera Turbo Executive also gains four-zone climate control, LED headlights and ambient lighting.
All Panamera Executive models can be specified with a new, large rear centre console that can be fitted with two integrated folding tables and an inductive antenna for an additional smartphone as an option.
Another option that Porsche thinks will be appealing particularly on Executive versions of the Panamera is the latest generation of the Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment system. This adds two 10.1in displays into the backrests of the front seats, which can be detached and used as tablets outside the vehicle.
