Do not adjust your screens, your aspect ratio isn’t out of whack. You are looking at the new, longer, more capacious Porsche Panamera Executive—with a wheelbase stretched by 150mm compared to the standard model. And the really good news? It isn’t just for the back seat obsessed Chinese, you can buy the bigger Panamera in other markets, too.

Effectively a new trim level, the Executive is available exclusively with four-wheel drive and with a choice of four engines. There’s a new entry-level 325hp version of the 3.0-liter V6 turbo (20hp stronger than the previous-gen entry V6), or the same engine with 433hp in the 4S. The plug-in Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive is good for 456hp, but if you’re really late for that meeting, it’s the 542hp Turbo you want.

Of course, the Executive doesn’t only offer more wiggle-room for your toes, you get a panoramic roof, heated and electrically adjustable seats front and rear, adaptive air suspension with PASM, and a roll-up sunblind as standard. On top of that, the E-Hybrid and S models add four-wheel steering and soft-close doors, while the Turbo throws in four-zone climate control and LED headlights. And we haven’t even got to the options list yet…

A new center console offers two folding tables for the full business class flight experience (bottomless champagne and dry-aged steak not included), while the rear seat entertainment package integrates a pair of 10.1-inch tablets transforming the car into a ‘fully digitized workplace’, or an ‘excellent place to put your feet up and binge on Netflix’.

Now we're really excited for this German's arrival in our market.
