The interior design leads the way to the future of the sports car – and nevertheless remains faithful to classic Porsche principles. The centre console ascends towards the front, the analogue rev counter is positioned in the middle of the instrument cluster, the dashboard is flat and conspicuously wide.
The control concept is cutting edge with Porsche Advanced Cockpit. In between the compact gear selector is the centre console, which features touch sensitive buttons for direct access to the most important functions.
The dashboard incorporates a highresolution 12-inch touchscreen display.
In conjunction with optional four-zone automatic climate control and individual power seats in the rear, the rear passengers also have a touchscreen display of their own. Two high-resolution screens, one to the right and one to left of the rev counter, display virtual instruments, maps and a range of other information.
Above all, though, there is plenty of space and comfort. Front and rear. Not so typical of a sports car? Absolutely typical of the Panamera model range.
In Sport Turismo form, it now incorporates a 4+1 seating concept as standard so that a fifth person can enjoy the Panamera driving experience. Although not designed as a full-size individual seat, the extra space does provide a neat solution for carrying an additional passenger on short to medium distance trips. And, visually, it maintains the impression of a sporty four-seater – typical of the Panamera. On request, you can revert to the ‘classic’ four-seat configuration if you choose optional individual power seats for the rear.
Thanks to the higher roof line, passengers seated in the rear of the Sport Turismo also benefit from some extra headroom.
