Panamera Offers Style and Function for Winter Road Trips

The Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo may not be the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think of the optimum mode of transportation through ice and snow, but with all-wheel drive, the Porsche Dynamic Chassis Control roll stabilization system, plenty of room for luggage and the comfort and luxury items that you’d expect from a Porsche, it might just be the ultimate vehicle for your next winter road trip. The company just took a group of German journalists on an icy tour through snow-covered Austria to prove how capable the Panamera Sport Turismo is in winter weather. All you have to do is take a trip to Porsche of Tucson and head up Mount Lemmon on a snowy day.

No Sled Dogs Required

As part of the Porsche trip through Germany, the journalists were able to drive a team of sled dogs, presumably to show how much more comfortable it is driving a Sport Turismo than it is standing behind a pack of huskies. You already know that, but did you known that the Panamera Sport Turismo rockets from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.2 seconds? That’s probably not advisable under snowy conditions, but with 330 horsepower at your command, you can get yourself out of a lot of unfavorable conditions. What will come in handy up north are the heated seats, which will keep you toasty warm no matter the outside temperature. The new 8-speed PDK transmission distributes the power seamlessly as you move swiftly through the gears. The intelligent system knows where and when the power needs to go to keep you moving safely along.

Four Doors are Just the Right Amount

The conventional wisdom among driving enthusiasts has been that four doors are two too many. Not so in the Porsche Panamera, the sedan that looks so athletic the rear doors seem to disappear in the muscular contours of the body. The harmonious contour is a sumptuous buffet for drivers who are starved for both performance and comfort. The interior space will be a welcome benefit for riders who get to sit in the rear and admire your driving skills. Compare the Panamera to the iconic 911 and it’s definitely bigger, but any keen eye will be able to identify the Porsche heritage in this marvelous driving machine.

Restyled Interior Remains Typically Porsche

Porsche designers did some edits on the Panamera interior for 2018, but the improvements take nothing away from the Porsche heritage. The flat dashboard offers supreme viewing and plenty of room to display the Porsche Advanced Cockpit. Touch-sensitive buttons on the center console deliver the kind of advanced technology you’d expect from a leading premium car company. Plush leather seats offer plenty of support for those times when you want to put the Pamanera through its paces on the track or a lonely mountain road. See why the Porsche Panamera Sport Turismo is the perfect vehicle for all conditions when you take a test drive at Porsche of Tucson.
