Good news from Porsche: the new generation of the Porsche Panamera now includes several new versions, that will be showcased at the 2016 Los Angeles Auto Show for the very first time. There’s going to be a new entry-level Panamera and Panamera 4, powered by a fresh 3.0-liter turbocharged V6, which is able to produce 330 PS (326 hp) and it’s connected to an eight-speed dual clutch transmission; obviously, the entry-level Panamera 4 will show off an all-wheel driving system.

But the best thing is the new Panamera Executive range, which comes with a 150mm longer wheelbase, aiming to offer more space to the rear-seat passengers and plenty of interesting features, like the heated seats, a large panoramic room, front and rear adaptive air suspension, and Porsche’s Active Suspension Management system.

Everyone’s attention will be probably focused on the Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive, the 4S Executive and the Turbo Executive versions, which will be even more impressive than the standard models. You see, the 4S Executive and the Turbo Executive will feature soft-close doors and rear wheel steering, as well as LED headlights, a four-zone climate control system and ambient lighting.

All Porsche Panamera Executive models may come with a redesigned rear center console, with two integrated folding tables. In the UK, the entry-level Panamera starts off at 66,386 pounds ($81,141) and may reach 122,480 pounds ($149,703) for the Panamera Turbo Executive. We’re still waiting on US pricing details.
