More power, more technology, and a new look more in keeping with its SUV brothers. Meet the 2021 Porsche Panamera.

The new Panamera has been given a significant overhaul beneath its subtly-evolved looks.

The Turbo has hit the gym and become a Turbo S, the GTS has been given a power bump, and the Panamera 4S E-Hybrid now has a bigger battery for longer-range running in electric mode.

Update, 10:45am 20/10/2020: Porsche Cars Australia has announced new Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid variants for 2021. Read more here

Even the base Panamera and Panamera 4 have been treated to a heart transplant, swapping their current 3.0-litre engines for the 2.9-litre V6 used in the Macan and Cayenne.

Also new for 2021, in Australia at least, is the addition of the longer-wheelbase Panamera Executive, with a stronger focus on comfort for rear-seat passengers.

Pricing starts at $199,500 before on-road costs for the Panamera, and extends to $420,800 before on-roads for the Turbo S E-Hybrid. The new Panamera will hit dealerships in December, with 4 E-Hybrid and Turbo S E-Hybrid models arriving in the first quarter of 2021.

The base engine in the Panamera is now a 2.9-litre turbocharged petrol V6 with 243kW of power and 450Nm of torque, sent to either the rear wheels, or all four wheels in the Panamera 4, through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Opting for the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid teams that 2.9-litre bi-turbo V6 with an electric motor and 17.9kWh lithium battery pack, good for a combined power output of 340kW.

Moving to the 4S E-Hybrid gets you a twin-turbocharged V6 (331kW) mated with an electric motor (100kW) for a combined peak power output of 412kW, and a peak combined torque output of 750Nm.

Both the GTS and Turbo S pack a 4.0-litre twin-turbocharged V8 petrol engine under the bonnet, sending power to all four wheels through an eight-speed automatic.

The GTS now outputs 353kW of power and 620Nm of torque, while the flagship Turbo S ups those figures to 463kW and 820Nm.

Wondering where the Turbo has gone? With 59kW and 50Nm more than the outgoing Turbo, the facelifted model has been upgraded to Turbo S status.

Flat out in the Turbo S you’ll hit 100km/h in just 3.1 seconds, on the way to a 315km/h top speed.

Topping the range is the new Panamera Turbo S E-Hybrid sedan, which combines a 420kW 4.0-litre bi-turbo V8 with an electric motor and 17.9kWh battery pack, good for system outputs of 514kW and 870Nm.

Porsche quotes a 0-100 time of 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 315km/h.
