2021 Porsche Panamera FAQ

More about the 2021 Porsche Panamera

1. Tons of options 

In 2021, Porsche gave the Panamera a refresh — the first since 2017!  New for 2021 is the stylish front fascia and a strip of glowing LED lights across the rear. And, this ride now has a whopping 24 configurations (thanks to eight trims and many optional packages and upgrade features) and is sure to suit your sports car craving. Powertrain options vary from a base model twin-turbo V6 to a high-end twin-turbo V8 or a V8 plug-in hybrid. Opt for an Executive model and you get a longer wheelbase with more legroom for backseat passengers. Plus, look out for new-for-2021 colors: a classy Truffle Brown Metallic and a hotrod-inspired Cherry Red Metallic. You'll have no problem finding a 2021 model that checks all the boxes! 

2. Sporty daily driver 

If you're conflicted about whether to get a weekend sports car to take to the local muscle car shows or a new daily driver to accommodate your growing family, the 2021 Porsche Panamera is an all-in-one option. It's got eye-catching curves, several robust engine options, and a luxury-packed cabin. But, it's also a sedan with four doors to make it easy to load kids or the family dog. You also have a hatchback trunk with 17.4 cu-ft of storage for sports equipment, shopping bags, or weekend camping gear.  

3. High-end cabin features 

Standard features of the 2021 Porsche Panamera easily fit in the luxury category. Base model drivers enjoy a panoramic sunroof, heated front seats with leather trim, parking assist, heated mirrors, a 10-speaker stereo system, and a rearview camera. Now, let's talk options. Look out for upgraded models with the Assistance Package, Premium Package, or Sport Package for more features. The Premium Package includes quiet soft-closing doors, adaptive air suspension for a smoother ride, heated backseats to keep the kids warm, and a 14-way adjustable driver's seat for those who enjoy channeling their inner racecar driver persona. 

4. A loaded tech stack 

As you get cozy in the 2021 Porsche Panamera, you won't be able to miss the large 12.3-inch touchscreen on the front console. The infotainment suite features a navigation system to help out on road trips, plus there's Bluetooth® connectivity, Apple CarPlay® integration, and an available Wi-Fi hotspot.

When it comes to driver tech, standard features in the 2021 Panamera include keyless entry and ignition, parking sensors, and a lane-keeping assist program. 

5. Agile handling on the road 

You may be attracted to the 2012 Porsche Panamera for its exterior good looks and luxury cabin features, but once you rev the engine, you'll also discover that its handling is top-notch. This sporty sedan glides over the road, accelerates quickly (the 4S model, for example, does a zero to 60 in 3.6 seconds with the twin-turbo V6 under the hood), and takes corners like a champ. Look for the Sport Package to gain rear-axle steering with an amplified power steering feature.
