For 2011 Porsche have added a new top-spec model to the Panamera range.

The Panamera Turbo S generates 10 percent more power than the standard Panamera Turbo, for a total of 550 horsepower. The torque is also increased over the Turbo from 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) to 553 lb-ft (750 Nm). In the "Sport" and "Sport Plus" mode of the standard Sport Chrono Package Turbo, the overboost function can temporarily generate additional torque with a peak rating of 590 lb-ft (800 Nm).

Of course, with a more powerful engine, the performance has also been enhanced. When using Launch Control the 0-60 mph sprint is dealt with in 3.6 seconds. The top speed of the Panamera Turbo S is 191 mph. Despite the increased performance, fuel consumption of the Panamera Turbo S remains at the same level as the Panamera Turbo.

The increased performance compared with the Panamera Turbo can be attributed to two significant changes. Improved turbochargers with titanium-aluminium turbine wheels and modified engine control management. The use of the innovative titanium-aluminium alloy reduces the weight of the turbine and compressor wheel. This results in a lower moment of inertia, and thus improved and more responsive acceleration.

The Porsche Panamera Turbo S features several key driving dynamics control systems as standard. For example, Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control (PDCC), an active roll stabilization system, improves cornering stability and enhances both driving dynamics and comfort in equal amounts. Porsche Torque Vectoring Plus (PTV Plus) applies a variable torque split to the rear wheels which, in combination with an electronically controlled rear limited slip differential, ensures superior traction. The car's Sport Chrono Package Turbo, which tunes the suspension settings and engine controls, makes the car even more sporting when the additional "Sport Plus" button is pressed. Completing the dynamic enhancements is a sports exhaust system that gives the engine a throaty growl.

The character of the Panamera Turbo S is reflected not just in its performance, but is also displayed through the revised exterior design. Upgrades include 20-inch Turbo II alloy wheels with increased rear axle track width, side skirts from the Porsche Exclusive range and an adaptive extending four-way rear spoiler.

Inside, the Porsche Panamera Turbo S is fitted with standard two-color leather upholstery, including two new optional combinations of black/cream and agate gray/cream exclusively for the Panamera Turbo S. Agate Gray Metallic will also be an exclusive exterior color.
