Luxurious long wheelbase fastback saloon limited to 100 units; features new two-tone paint finish and myriad trim upgrades
30 October 2014

Porsche has revealed a new limited edition long wheelbase version of its 562bhp Panamera Turbo S called the Executive Exclusive, which comes from the company's in-house Exclusive division.

Making its debut at the Los Angeles motor show, the generously equipped fastback Porsche – which is 150mm longer than the standard Panamera – receives a new graduated two-tone exterior colour scheme in black and chestnut brown metallic.

The paint process is carried out by hand; the front intake grills and 20-inch Sport Classic wheels are also finished in deep black metallic to complement the look.

Inside, the new Porsche features seats covered in hestnut brown leather from Italian company Poltrona Frau, with contrasting black Nappa leather door trims with chestnut brown stitching – a combination reflecting the exterior colour treatment.

A similar treatment is taken with the inlay trims, which transition from walnut burl wood to a black piano lacquer finish throughout the cabin.

Each model receives Porsche’s new Rear Seat Entertainment System Plus package. Included are two 10.1-inch touch screens with built-in cameras and mobile internet access.

At the LA motor show, bosses told Autocar that the 100 cars being built were expected to sell out ,within 48 hours of the car going on sale. 

Power for the limited edition long wheelbase Panamera hails from the same twin-turbocharged 4.8-litre V8 direct injection petrol engine used in the standard Panamera Turbo S sold in the UK.

The engine develops 562bhp and 590lb ft of torque, and drives through a standard seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, allowing for 0-62mph acceleration in 3.9sec and a top speed of 193mph.

Porsche has priced the left-hand drive only Panamara Turbo S Executive Exclusive at €249,877 plus taxes in Germany.

Gosh, it looks so ghastly in this paint and its profile generally looks terrible and ungainly in pictures whatever the colour. In metal however it does have a presence.
