For those who are considering purchasing Porsche Panamera (971)-I summarized what I want to know in advance

Porsche Panamera

Before purchasing Panamera

originally,This blog began with love of Panamera.For now, I started to write articles about Porsche other than Panamera, but at the time of opening, I wrote about Panamera every day everyday.

And recently, the number of comments received in Panamera's articles I wrote in the past has increased,I did not know Panamera was ○ ○! It was nice to know in advanceIn response to the fact that we often write content such as "

(971) Panamera Things that seems to be good to know before purchase

I decided to summarize.

1 Panamera is big

"Panamera is bigI do not dare write it, I guess everyone knows enough ... (- _ -) Regarding normal panamera, once again confirm the size of the car body,

Total height: 1,425 mm, vehicle width: 1,935 mm, total length: 5,050 mm

. Because of this size, Panamera must be sure,Parking problemIs followed.

In the suburban parking lot, there is no problem because there are many cases where the width of one is wide, but many urban parking lots and stays are narrow. So, even where I had been stopped without problems with my old car,I can not stop it in Panamera(If you think you want to stop it you can be stopped, but the risk of rubbing is great)You may encounter a situation such as.

Also,The loophole that I used normally so far can not run(I can run but the risk is great when I pass the oncoming car)I think that it is better to think about such things.

2 Keyless entry is not standard equipment

Panamera which is compared well with luxury sedan such as Mercedes' S class. Of course"Keyless Entry(The option name changed from Comfort Access to Porsche Entry & Drive System?)Is it standard equipment, right?I think, but that is not down to the wholesale w.

Porsche is a sports car maker and Panamera is also a sports car rather than a luxury sedan.(I realized compared to the Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe the other day)That's why the keyless entry function has been selected as an option at the moment. By the way, Panamera Turbo is standard equipment.

In the future, the model to be equipped as standard may change, but according to the information previously received in the Porsche Owner's file,At least Panamera 4S at the time of delivery of cars in October 2018, keyless entry was not standard equipment.

3 4 + 1 She seems to be able to choose?

Panamera GTS announced last OctoberIt was done. And this Panamera GTS is optional "4 + 1 sheetIt became available to choose! That is,There can be three rear seatsThat. Until now, in purchasing Panamera,

Panamera is a four-seater race ... If you want a five-seat ride, it will be a sports tourismo ... but if that is the case Cayenne can get on more comfortably. But if that is SUV ... then why should I make it to S class or 7 series ...

The trouble of being troubled was a thing but it is very thankful that you do not need to worry about such a thing.

After that, also in the comment of this blog "Panamera at the time of ordering November 2018, 4 + 1 sheets could be selectedBecause there was a person who wrote "normal Panamera" as well?

I think that it is better to check with the dealer's person before purchasing.

The following is a postscript of the 4 + 1 sheet (2019.3.14)

Speaking of which, it is the follow up of 4 + 1 sheet. Option fee is ¥ 137,000 as of November 2019(tax included)So when I adapted to the base grade Panamera it was interesting!
There is a switch on the left and right to electrically lower the rear seat from inside the rear trunk in the Sport Turismo, but there is no switch in the 4 + 1 seatwas. Originally, it is directly above the luggage net and in front of the trunk room light. Not all equipment related to the back seat was the same as the Sport Tourismo. . . Even though I thought that it would still be convenient if there was a switch, I also thought that manual operation would be safer if you put something in the back seat! (Tommy)

4 Rear axle steering is required

"The essential option of Panamera's option is rear axle steering!"Although I wrote it in this blog again and again, this option is mandatory because it is a gigantic body like Panamera.

When turning a steep curve, U turn, parking, running winding etc.,It is completely different if there is this.(Although the rear axle steering was not attached to the 970 Panamera edition previously in my house, the difference is obvious)

Actually, those who purchased Panamera around me and those who read blogs also said "Correct answer with rear axle steering attached!There are many people who say that. For example, in the previous Porsche Owner's file report,

There is also a long wheelbase effect of rear axle steering, and the large curve at high speed runs like a straight line. Even in the scene where you make a U-turn, you can feel the benefits of the short wheelbase effect of rear axle steering.Until now, you can turn around without losing yourself for a minute as much as it was bent over the lane.

He was writing me.

5 To move the passenger's seat from the driver's seat

I wrote on a blog before "Ability to move passenger seat from the driver's seat of Panamera Turbo", This function is not supported in Panamera, Panamera 4, Panamera 4S, Panamera 4 Executive, Panamera 4S Executive Standard Sheet,"14 way Electrical seat with memory function (front seat) option"Must be selected.

By the way, this "14 way Electrical seat with memory function (front seat) option"If you select the seat as an option, the steering column will also be electrically adjusted, so the easy entry function will also be enhanced.(If the standard seat is left as it is, the steering does not move with the easy entry function)

6 Panamera 4E Hybrid connector is J1772

According to the content reported in the Porsche Owner's file, "January 2018 971 Panamera 4E Hybrid at delivery time"The connector to adapt to J1772. Connectors of PHV · EV are mainly divided into

· CHAdeMO (Chademo)
· SAE J 1772 (Notation such as IEC 62196 is also available?)

There are two types,J1772 is the only connector that adapts Panamera 4E hybridA lot Even though you think "It's convenient because there is a free charge port in the neighborhood!", Charging can not be done if the shape of the connector of the charging port there is different.

7 Panamera's V6 engine

Panamera's V6 engine has two types, 3.0 L (2995 cc) and 2.9 L (2894 cc), 3.0L engine used for normal and 4, made by Audi(Porsche designed, Audi made)It seems to be.(Reference article:* Inside Porsche's new V8 and V6 powertrains,Audi A8 55 TFSI quattro (4 WD / 8 AT) [test riding])))

However, a little while ago my husband was talking to the nearest Porsche Center service person "The current Panamera engine is made by Porsche every modelIt seems that you were caught briefly, so maybe they are all loading Porsche engine.

Ask a person in charge

As it seems that the Porsche Center also does not know about the changes in the specification of the model and the details on the options,(It's hard to understand all the latest information)Basically,Try it yourself and ask questions from here before purchasing points you care aboutIt looks good.

Because it is expensive shopping, after purchase "Was it so? ! Oops!It is something that I want to make sure that there is nothing like it, and thinking about the details of the options, it seems that more things can be written, so I think I would like to append what I came up at a later date.

    It's a nice theme!

    The specification of Porsche is incomprehensible, is not it ~
    What is the concept of standard is sparse and there are many who do not know what you are referring to in relation to translation!

    Moreover, the absolute amount of the person who is purchasing is small, so information is small.

    In the past, the difference was easy to understand with the brochure (?) Attached to the catalog, but it is also abolished.

    The Cayenne 958 I bought last time managed to have an image, but the new Cayenne delivered last week struggled with a configurator!

    Please feature the ease of use of PCM by all means!

      Mr. Sakamichi of the wind
      Gobusatashiteorimasu! Thank you for saying so!

      > There are many things that you do not know what you are referring to in terms of translation!
      Surely ... I really understand!
      In the first place, option relationships and other things are quite confusing, similar things fall into different categories ... it is complicated.

      > The Cayenne 958 I bought last time managed somehow, but the new Cayenne delivered last week struggled with a configurator!
      Are you a new Cayenne Delivery? ! ! I envy you! ! ! !
      It looks cool! ^ ^!!

      Regarding the ease of use of PCM, we have already used a lot of time and it has been used normally without feeling any discomfort (although not all functions are usable)
      If you have "what kind of place you want to know" etc., if you can tell by all means I'm happy ^ ^

    Nice to meet you. I always see you happily!
    Now we own 970 Panamera Turbo.
    971 I'm thinking about buying a turbo, but in a shop where I often go, the staff said that only "Turismo 4 + 1 seats can be chosen, may not go through a car inspection".

    Would not it be impossible unless it was a big store like VIP like mina ('- ω - `)

    Also, I do not care, but I know I will definitely try to know on this blog
    【Rear Axle Steering】
    [Rear Axle Steering] is also written. Which is the official name?

    • MinaMina

      Uri
      Always thank you for seeing the blog!

      > We now own 970 Panamera Turbo.
      > 971 I'm thinking about buying a turbo,
      Ooooo 970 Panamera Turbo! It is cool!
      Although I see only one in the neighborhood, I always keep running feathers and I take pictures every time I see them (laugh)

      971 Panamera's 4 + 1 seat can not be chosen with the configurator,
      When ordering at a shop, if you can attach any model, when dealing with you last week, you were in charge of dealers!
      "However, since it is a 4 + 1 seat to the last rather than 5 sheets, the center console place straddled and I had to ride ..." I said.

      > In addition, although it is not bad, I know I will definitely try to know on this blog
      > 【Rear Axle Steering】
      > [Rear Axle Steering] is also written. Which is the official name?

      I also thought that it was "rear axle" for the first time, but the official name is "rear axle (axle of the rear wheel) steering" ^^
      971 Panamera turbo, please let us know its ride taste when delivered delicious ~ ^ ^

    It is a good summary you want to read before purchasing, is very helpful! 【5 To move the passenger seat from the driver's seat】 I had never thought about it and I could not wear the option. I want someone who is unfamiliar with children and operations to use it. Although it is a vehicle that can mainly carry parents, it seems better to move the passenger seat without being afraid of operation now. informative!

    • MinaMina

      Tommy
      Thank you! As it is thought, it seems to be more.

      > It is a vehicle that can ride parents mainly, but it seems better to move the passenger seat without being afraid of the operation now.

      Oh, I see ... well, my parents are warm up as I do not understand the seat adjustment at all. (Laugh) Sounds good at that time!
      Continue to thank you.

    Nice to meet you. I have read it for the first time this time. I just put a down payment on 3/4, the model is the Pan of Panamera 4E hybrid ST. Although becoming the owner of Porsche for the first time, it is often very confusing to the variety of options and I do not want to regret later as it is overturned, so I arrived at this article while I was fishing various sites came. It is truly a great learning experience. I will continue to read in the future, thank you very much!

      Congratulations! Panamera 4E hybrid ST, it looks cool! !
      Certainly Porsche has a lot of options and there are things that the configurator does not know what it is saying, it is difficult, is not it?

      > I've reached this article while reading various sites. It is truly a great learning experience.
      Thank you for saying that in such a way!
      Since I think that I would be able to write fun articles useful for everyone in the future, please tell me again variously.
      Continue to thank you!

      Thank you very much for your valuable information! ! ! That's right!
      If you don't actually buy and touch something like this, you'll never notice it!
      Thank you very much!

      Here, I will add this article as information provided by Tommy.
      Thank you ^ ^

    I am always looking forward to it!

    I am always looking forward to it!

    Recently I became very interested in Panamera and came to this site! There is little raw information, so it will be very helpful!

    I ordered Pana actually referring to this.

    I was wondering at first glance about the review of Pana of Loperaio, but it is a hatchback. The hatchback opened quite high in the image. Do you actually get hit if there is a pipe on the ceiling in the parking lot where you go out? ?

      Thank you for your comment ^ ^

      Eh wow! ! ! ! Interested in, actually buying is ... amazing! ! !
      If it is delivered by all means, I am glad if you can tell the impression etc ^ ^

      Hatchback, I did not care too much, but certainly, when I check, it is quite high. . .
      When I was searching for images, it would be about 2 m because I was still above the tall foreigners.

      I have never been on the go, but
      First of all, there are few parking lots where the width of the Panamera enters, and there are many in the city (less than 1900 mm, but the Panamera exceeds 1950 mm)
      At that time, I could not go to the parking lot or parking space in the narrow space, so I might not have thought so much ^ ^;

      But I do not say that even the net is hit, so I think that it is probably all right.

    J11050, Mina

    It's quite expensive, so at first I use my mind when it's a low cabin. You can set the upper limit of the height when the hatchback opens. This is an item called “Adjusting the height of the rear lid open” (page 259 of the Panamera series in the following URL). You said "3. Move the rear lid to the height you want to set", but the dealer told me to manually adjust the height after opening the hatch and then adjust the height by pressing the button long to determine the height . Somehow I felt that I was moving the hatch by force and it was not good feeling, but it seems to be the official height adjustment method. https://www.porsche.com/japan/jp/accessoriesandservice/porscheservice/vehicleinformation/manual/

    • MinaMina

      Oh Tommy! ! !
      What an easy to understand and valuable information! Thank you!

      > The dealer told me to manually adjust the height after opening the hatch and then press and hold the button to determine the height.
      I did not know that I could do that! And if this is the official height adjustment method, it's safe!
      Thank you!

    Tommy
    Thank you for the great information!

    I checked immediately, there was a video that the US dealers are practicing!

    This is safe!
