On June 13, 2011, Porsche took the Panamera Turbo to the Shanghai Formula 1 Circuit to ‘break’ the lap record for a four-door production car. The result was a lap of 2:29.640 minutes. We are wondering what time they eventually broke and if this record ever existed. Porsche did not reveal the ‘old’ time.
The Porsche Panamera is a five-door, four-seat luxury sedan with a coupe profile and a rear hatch. The Turbo is powered by a 4.8 liter Twin Turbo V8 producing 500hp and 700Nm between 2,250 and 4,500rpm. 0-100km/h is done in 4.2 seconds and the top speed is 188mph (303 km/h).
