At the Los Angeles Auto Show this week, Porsche will unveil the 911 RSR racing car that is designed to compete internationally during 2017, and four so-called Panamera Executive models with their world premieres: the Panamera Turbo Executive (404 kW/550 horsepower), Panamera 4S Executive (324 kW/440 horsepower), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive (340 kW/462 horsepower) and Panamera 4 Executive (243 kW/330 horsepower). One change is the basic engine of the four-door models.
A redesigned 3-liter V6 turbocharged engine is the new entry-level model for the Gran Turismo trim, and is used in the Panamera 4 Executive, the Panamera with rear-wheel drive and the Panamera 4 with all-wheel drive.
The U.S. remains one of Porsche’s main sales markets. Through October 2016, the auto maker delivered 178,314 vehicles around the world, representing a three-percent increase over the same period in 2015.
Porsche claims that this success can be attributed to the excellent reputation the company enjoys among its customers: In 2016, Porsche once again led in the overall classification of the J.D. Power APEAL study conducted by the U.S. market research institute. In addition, the Porsche 911, Boxster and Macan achieved first place in their respective categories.
