2017 Porsche Panamera Turbo Redesign
The retractable rear spoiler, while cool as f*ck, is not a new concept. VW had an active spoiler on their Corrado all the way back in 1988. But, with the introduction of the 2017 Panamera Turbo, Porsche is taking things to a whole new level.
At the designated speed, the spoiler not only seemingly pops up out of nowhere, but it then splits and extends resulting in additional surface area for the generation of downforce. Sure the Turbo S also has 550 horsepower, 8 speed tranny, and gorgeous interior, but that spoiler, though. Damnnnn.
The overall effect is what Porsche intended from the beginning: look like a Porsche 911 enlarged to carry four in comfort. It arrives in January 2017, base-priced at $101,040 for the Panamera 4S and $147,950 for the Panamera Turbo.
