The new 2021 Porsche Panamera Turbo S has taken its latest step as it demonstrates its capabilities on demanding courses around the world.

After achieving a then-record lap at Germany's Nurburgring Nordschleife before its official unveiling late last year, the Panamera Turbo S travelled to Road Atlanta to set a benchmark lap time of 1 minute and 31.51 seconds.

Porsche Cars North America enlisted professional race car Driver Leh Keen to showcase the significantly enhanced driving capabilities of the new Panamera on the 4.08km race track in November 2020. This track activity follows the benchmark lap time achieved by the Taycan Turbo S at the same track last year.

"The engineers found a perfect balance," said Keen. "They really made it feels small and sporty. The stability gave me a ton of confidence to use every bit of the asphalt and curbs. And yet the car has a completely different and more refined and relaxed character on the highway - an amazing combination."
