Porsche will launch the second-gen Panamera in India in March.

At the time of launch, the German carmaker will only offer the four-door sedan in Turbo form. The Panamera Turbo is powered by an all-new 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 petrol that makes 550hp and 770Nm, giving the sedan a claimed 0-100kph time of 4.2 seconds.

The Turbo will be followed by the Panamera Executive Turbo. The ‘Executive’ is essentially a stretched version of the Panamera and features a 150mm longer wheelbase for increased rear passenger space.

Expect a price tag in the region of Rs 1.9 crore (estimated, ex-showroom) for the standard Turbo while the Executive Turbo will cost over Rs 2 crore.

Porsche will expand the Panamera range with the launch of more petrol and diesel variants by the year-end. A hybrid model will launch next year. The diesel models will include a new 3.0-litre V6 as well as a strong 4.0-litre V8 that makes 442hp and 850Nm.

Porsche will also launch the new 718 Boxster and Cayman on February 15 with prices starting at the Rs 80 lakh mark (ex-showroom).
