Porsche celebrates Panamera with 10 Years Edition
Special-edition Porsche Panamera 10 Years arrives locally from $236,000 plus on-roads
3 Oct 2019
PORSCHE Cars Australia (PCA) has marked the 10th anniversary of the original Panamera four-door sedan with the release of the Panamera 10 Years Edition, which has touched down in local showrooms priced from $236,000 plus on-road costs.
The special-edition sedan will only be offered in the entry-level Panamera and the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid ($266,100) forms, with the 10 Years Edition commanding a premium of $17,000 and $13,700 respectively.
PCA has packed a number of extra features into the 10 Years Edition to differentiate it from its regular counterparts, starting with Panamera10 logos in White Gold metallic on the front doors, with the logo also found on the front passenger trim panel and door entry guards.
New 21-inch Panamera Sport Design wheels in satin-gloss White Gold metallic are included as standard, while the White Gold colour is also found on the contrast stitching for the partial leather interior.
The 10 Years Editions also score LED Matrix headlights with Porsche Dynamic Light System Plus, lane-change assist, soft-close doors, rear seats with a through-loading system, a ski bag and Porsche crests on the head restraints.
On the dynamic side, three-chamber adaptive air suspension with Porsche Active Suspension Management is thrown in as standard, as is Power Steering Plus.
No changes have been made to the powertrains in the 10 Years Editions, with the Panamera carrying over its 243kW/450Nm 3.0-litre turbo-petrol V6 engine, powering the rear wheels via an eight-speed PDK dual-clutch transmission.
The Panamera 4 E-Hybrid employs a 2.9-litre twin-turbo V6 mated to a 100kW electric motor, for a combined total output of 340kW, driving all four wheels also via an eight-speed PDK.
The hybrid 10 Years Edition also upgrades its on-board charger from a 3.6kW capacity to 7.2kW.
Porsche’s first-generation Panamera originally arrived in 2009 with a polarising rear design and added practicality over its two-door stablemates.
Never a huge volume seller for the brand, the first-gen Panamera’s best sales year came in 2010 – its first full year on sale – where it tallied 109 units.
The second-generation version arrived in early 2017, with a sleeker rear design more reminiscent of the legendary 911, with new engine choices and the option of the Sport Turismo wagon body style.
Despite no sales in January, 2017 saw a record sales year for the Panamera – just – with 111 total units sold.
To the end of August, Porsche has sold only 44 examples of the Panamera – a significant 48.2 per cent dive over the same period last year.
