The Panamera in its latest version the new Turbo S was unveiled by Porsche. This model is the fastest and the most powerful car that Porsche has come out to date. The engine fit of this car is the 4.8 liter force fed V8 engine that is also used by them on their standard Turbo models. The upgrade to the engine consists of improved turbochargers with the turbine wheels made up of a titanium-aluminium alloy and a modified engine control management system.

Power output is raised in the process to 550 hp which is 50 hp above the standard. Peak torque is also raised from 700 to 750 Nm to 553 lb ft. The engine also has a “Sport” and “Sport Plus” mode which is part of the Sport Chrono Package Turbo package. In these modes the engine delivers 800 Nm or 590 lb ft torque due to the over boost function that is installed.
