2017 Porsche Panamera Has New Aluminum Look but its Not Lighter

By  | 

One of the biggest attractions of the 2017 Porsche Panamera is the new look that takes away the bloating thanks to the shorter rear and front overhangs, which make it more in-line with the Porsche 911.

The changes that you cannot see on the 2017 Porsche Panamera is internally. The vehicle has the MSB-F platform that is lightweight, from the Volkswagen Group, due to a lot of the chassis and parts being made from aluminum.

This build could of course make the 2017 Porsche Panamera lighter, but this wasn’t something that Porsche went with. Porsche chose to make the vehicle have torsional rigidity that is greater. If they had chosen to use steel to do the job then the sedan would have been heavier.

It was said that the 2017 Porsche Panamera 4S has a weight that is around the same as the first generation model, this is 4,132lbs. Right now we are waiting to find out the effects on the fuel economy.
