    Just how quick is the 2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo? 0-60 in 3.0, 1/4 mile 11.3@122, & curb weight of 4593 pounds

    It is about time some concrete test results of the new Porsche Panamera Turbo were posted. As you are aware the Panamera Turbo receives a new 4.0 liter twin turbo V8 design with 550 horsepower and 567 lb-ft of torque.

    The Panamera desperately needed a new motor as the old 4.8 liter twin turbo V8 was getting absolutely trounced by the competition.

    Here is a handy chart illustrating the point:

    Engine: BMW S63TU AMG M157 Audi 4.0 TFSI Porsche 4.8
    Displacement: 4395cc 5461cc 3993cc 4806cc
    Bore x Stroke: 89x88.3mm 98x90.5mm 84.5x89mm 96x83mm
    Horsepower: 560/575 577 560 520/570
    Torque lb-ft: 500 590 516 516/553
    Boost Pressure: 22 psi 14.5 psi 14.5 psi 12.3/13.5 psi
    Compression: 10.0:1 10.0:1 10.1:1 10.5:1
    Redline/Fuel cut: 7100 6400/6600 6600 6500/6700
    Valvetrain: DOHC 4V DOHC 4V DOHC 4V DOHC 4V
    Fuel Injection: Direct Direct Direct Direct

    Despite the downsizing the new engine architecture is much more efficient. The torque increase is especially appreciated as the Panamera Turbo now weighs 4593 pounds. Ouch.

    Very heavy but it is quick with 0-60 taking only three seconds and running 11.3 seconds in the 1/4 mile. Tune only, this is an easy 10 second car.

    The question is will the transmission hold up? The Panamera Turbo is the only car in its class offering all wheel drive and a dual clutch transmission. It should hold up with a tune but if not hopefully Dodson will have something for owners who want even more power/torque down the line.

    An impressive performer at an expensive price point. Expect the Panamera Turbo S to take things even further and run 10's stock.

    Weight is disappointing, especially when Porsche has managed to keep the weight of 911's relatively low.
    Sure a TT V8 and AWD in a luxury sedan is about the heaviest recipe out there - but if BMW can manage to keep it down, why couldn't Porsche at least match the BMW weight if not come in even lower ...

    10's with a tune ... heady times we live in.

    The weight is a killer. Don't expect the F90 M5 to be light though. BMW has no problem lying about weight.
