Cars – Porsche is preparing to unveil the latest Panamera models in its third generation. Before the imminent debut, the company revealed the interior of the car. The cabin is a mix of technology and luxury materials, with the car distinguished by a simple design language that conveys a sense of sophistication and simplicity.
The Porsche Driving Experience Control concept, which first appeared in the Taycan, will be integrated into the Panamera’s cabin. This will provide customers with a customizable digital display. For a more comfortable experience, several key controls are grouped near the steering wheel, allowing the driver to quickly access regularly used functions. This should come in handy, especially when driving a large sedan at speed.
For example, the drive mode switches have been moved to the steering wheel. Elsewhere, the gear selector has been placed on the interface between the instrument cluster and the infotainment screen to save space. The center console is elegant, simple and uncluttered, with a climate control panel that contains a mix of physical buttons and touch controls. Porsche has retained some physical keys.
The new Panamera features electrically operated air vents in the center console. The climate control system also allows occupants to store pre-selected settings that can be recalled at the touch of a button. In practical terms, the storage space in the center console is larger than that in the previous model.
The size of the digital instrument screen is 12.6 inches. The screen is independent of the infotainment displays and gives the driver a clear and crisp view of the necessary vehicle information. The front passenger will also get a screen through which he can control many of the car’s functions.
The cabin design comes with touches heavily inspired by the recently updated Cayenne. It is expected to have high-quality luxury materials and a lot of luxury features. For the first time, the Porsche Panamera will provide continuous ambient lighting that extends across the width of the fascia. Executive long-wheelbase models will benefit from a new rear seating system.
Buyers will be able to customize the interior design with a range of color and material options. This includes two-tone designs and different types of leather. Porsche caters to environmentally conscious customers with leather-free upholstery options, such as Race-Tex and Pipita fabric.
Porsche will unveil the new Panamera on November 24. The luxury sedan will debut with an updated engine range, four new hybrid models, and a revised version of the PDK transmission. Porsche Panamera will retain the V8 engine option.
