Available as either a 4S or Turbo model, the Panamera Executive will be priced from $125,600 and $161,000 respectively. That roughly translates to an increase of $25,000 and $20,000 (respectively) over the standard wheelbase models.
What buyers get for the extra chunk of change is six more inches of rear seat legroom, as well as a more comfort-oriented air suspension system.
Like their conventional wheelbase counterparts, Panamera 4S Executive models also benefit from a new biturbo 3.0-liter V6 engine, which replaces the old 4.8-liter V8. The result is improved fuel economy as well as an increase in power to 420 hp.
