http://www.planet-9.com/gallery/files/3/laautoshow2016.jpg Los Angeles It is that time of the year again, the Los Angeles Auto show. In the past we've seen the 981 Cayman and Cayman GT4 Clubsport unveiled at this show. This year, Porsche is focusing on 3 new Panamera variants. We've sent our trusty reporters to get some information and images from the show again this year and they will be posting them to this topic thread. In fact any members that attend the show are welcome to share their thoughts, experiences and photos here in this topic thread. Here is the information about the new Panameras:

Porsche is continuing to expand the model range of the new Panamera: The new V6 turbo is a highly efficient and agile entry-level addition to the impressive range of engines. Power is up by 20 hp from the corresponding engine of the previous Panamera generation. At the same time, Porsche was able to reduce the consumption of this completely redeveloped six-cylinder petrol engine by up to 1.0 l/100 km. The new 330-hp (243kW; Panamera: combined fuel consumption 7.6 – 7.5 l/100 km; CO[SUB]2 [/SUB]emissions: 173 – 171 g/km; Panamera 4: combined fuel consumption 7.8 – 7.7 l/100 km; CO[SUB]2 [/SUB]emissions: 177 – 175 g/km; Panamera 4 Executive: combined fuel consumption 7.9 – 7.8 l/100 km; CO[SUB]2 [/SUB]emissions: 180 – 178 g/km) engine is combined with rear-wheel drive in the Panamera and all-wheel drive in the Panamera 4, plus a long wheelbase in the Panamera 4 Executive.
While the Panamera and Panamera 4 with 330 hp redefine what can be expected at the entry-level end, the Executive models of the big Porsche, with their 150 millimetre longer wheelbase, expand the body and equipment portfolio at the top end of the model line. Designed as a chauffeur saloon, this Porsche is available in the all-wheel drive versions Panamera 4 Executive, Panamera 4 E-Hybrid Executive, Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive.

The new Panamera 4S Executive

The new Porsche Panamera Executive versions are equipped even more exclusively. The standard features are supplemented with a large panoramic roof, heated comfort seats with multi-way electrical adjustment in the front and rear and adaptive air suspension with an electronically controlled damper system (Porsche Active Suspension Management / PASM). The roll-up sunblind behind the headrests in the rear also comes as standard. The standard equipment of the Panamera 4S Executive and Panamera Turbo Executive is even more comprehensive: Among other things, both models benefit from rear-axle steering and soft-close doors. As the most powerful model, the Panamera Turbo Executive is equipped with standard features such as four-zone climate control, LED main headlights including Porsche Dynamic Light System (PDLS) and ambient lighting.
As an option, all Porsche Panamera Executive models are available with a newly developed, large rear centre console, which can also be equipped with two integrated folding tables and an inductive antenna connection for an additional smartphone, depending on the market. Similarly to the existing Panamera models, the exterior of the Executive versions can be further individualised with a Sport design package.
Panamera can be used as a fully digitalised workplace

Another useful equipment option, particularly for the Executive versions frequently used as chauffeur saloons in China and the USA, is the latest generation of Porsche Rear Seat Entertainment. The 10.1-inch displays integrated in the backrests of the front seats can be detached for a wide range of uses; when needed, they transform the rear of the Panamera into a fully digitalised workplace. The high-quality displays can also be used as tablets outside the vehicle.

With regard to the model line, the fully redeveloped second generation of the Panamera was introduced in the summer of 2016. The four all-wheel drive models Panamera 4S, Panamera 4S Diesel (310 kW / 422 hp; combined fuel consumption 6.8 – 6.7 l/100 km; CO[SUB]2 [/SUB]emissions: 178 – 176 g/km), Panamera 4 E-Hybrid and Panamera Turbo are already available on the market. With the addition of the new 330 hp versions and the Executive models, the Porsche Panamera range now comprises ten different models with power outputs from 330 to 550 hp.

The rear wing on the new RSR is very impressive. I just noticed a bonus easter egg in my photo. Look who's standing on the other side of the RSR. It's none other than Dr. Frank Walliser, head of the 918 Spyder project.

I love the fact that a Porsche build a faster Porsche and put the engine in the right spot where their entry level cars have them

Overall, I would say the Porsche exhibit was kind of boring this year, at least during press days. I was hoping they had more 718 cars on display. They also only had 3 911s on the floor. But I guess their main focus was on the new Panameras. Maybe on public days they will roll out more 718s and 911s.

You cant see it that well in these pictures, but the RSS Feed article about the 911 RSR shows a good view of the rear diffuser. It looks like someone ran over the garbage cans.
