A new report making its way around the Internet suggests that Porsche is planning to unveil a Panamera Turbo S sometime next month. Nothing is official yet, but if the report is believed to be true, we’ll see something at the 2011 Shanghai Motor Show or the 2011 New York Auto Show.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S will most likely be powered by a 4.8L twin-turbo V8 engine making 542-hp with a maximum torque of 590 lb-ft. That should allow the Panamera Turbo S to go from 0 to 60 mph in 3.8 seconds with a top speed of more than 188 mph.
Sales of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S could start in late June or early July.
