Few people will likely notice the minor differences between the 2020 and 2021 versions of Porsche’s four-door hatchback, but there’s more power for at least two models. The twin-turbocharged 4.0-liter V-8 in the Panamera Turbo S will deliver 620 horsepower and 605 pound-feet of torque, up from 550/568. According to Porsche, that means the 2021 Turbo S will hit 60 mph from rest in 2.9 seconds. Meanwhile, the plug-in 4S E-Hybrid model’s combination of a twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 plus a 135-horsepower electric motor produces a combined 552 horsepower, which is a 90-horsepower increase. It can hit 60 from rest in a claimed 3.5 seconds. Naturally, both variants will cost considerably more than the base $90,000 Panamera, which retains its 325-horsepower twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6.
