The Panamera is a terrific car, with excellent fit and finish, superb and nimble handling. Truly a sports car and a sedan for 4 people. And with the hatchback and the ability to quite easily fold down the middle seats, a practical 2 seater SUV! Seats are firm, yet extremely comfortable. Handling is terrific. The V6 has plenty of power and torque and is most capable. The 19" rims give a quieter and softer ride than the larger sizes. I cannot say enough positive things about this car. A truly fun, exciting and most attractive car.
While shopping for my next car was fun, there were alot of choices for me and my price range. I had to factor in if I wanted a sports car, a sedan, etc. Althought I don't have kids, I have 2 neices that I take out alot. So that narrowed my choices of Lamborgini, and other sports cars that only had two seats. So the choices for 2 door coupes with backs sears were the Bentley GT, Ferrari 612, Aston Martin DB9, Maserati Grand Turismo, or Porsche 911. The sedan choices were Aston Martin Rapide, Maserati Quattroporte, and Porsche Panamera Turbo. After a month of going back and forth, I decided that the best choice was to buy 2 cars. Once sedan daily and a sports car so that I don't have to compromise! So I went for the Porsche Panamera V6 instead of the turbo to fee up some cap space for my second vehicle. So I Bought the Panamera and a Lamborghini Gallardo. I started added some touches to the Panamera!, Rims, suspension, exhaust, Etc.. I'm having so much fun with this car that I forget about my other car!! I love driving it so much, and get lots of looks and it breaks lots of necks! I had someone take a picture of it while I was in the parking lot! So to conclude this review, I love this car. I feel like I got the best of both worlds in 1 car!
Fantastic handling and the "S" model with the V-8 has incredible power. A beautiful driver's car that spoils all 4 occupants in luxury and style. My only drawback is the visibity to the sides and rear takes a bit getting used too-so leave the blind spot monitoring system on. The ride is also a little stiff, even in the softest ride mode, but it's perhaps the trade off for getting great road feedback from true high performance automobile.
