2012 Porsche Panamera Test Drive & Luxury Sports Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/porsche/panamera/2012/?id=32972 The 2012 Porsche Panamera is an interesting combination of automotive delicacies. The Panamera is one part sports car, one part luxury car, one part hatchback, and one part sedan. Over the past decade, Porsche has created a few unique vehicles to target a broad range of car buyers. The Boxster is aimed at the entry level sports car enthusiast while the Cayenne is aimed at those looking for a quick SUV. But the Panamera offers 911 performance with a usable back seat. The 2012 Porsche Panamera can range from $75,200 for the base model all the way to $173,200 for the top of the line turbo S model. The vehicle tested in this video is the base model Panamera 4 (AWD). It is powered by a lightweight and direct injected 3.6 liter V-6 engine that makes 300 horsepower and 295 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is the famous PDK twin-cutch 7-speed unit that shifts lighting quick. Fuel economy on the 2012 Porsche Panamera is 18 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway thanks in part to an auto start/stop system which shuts down the engine while the car is sitting idle. Sixty MPH flies by in 5.8 seconds and the Panamera 4 has a top speed of 159 MPH. The Panamera handles incredibly well thanks to the Porsche Traction Management system. The AWD monitors driving situations and can adjust power as need. The Panamera is equipped with Anti-Slip Regulation and Automatic Brake Differential. Porsche Active Suspension Management is optional on the Panamera 4. This system provides electronic dampening at all 4 corners of the car thus reducing body roll and increasing handling. The system will also tighten up the setting based on the selection of modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus. The rims are 18-inch alloys wrapped in sticky rubber. The 2012 Porsche Panamera comes with huge 360 mm brakes up front and 330 mm brakes out back. The calipers are six-piston units. Safety wise besides all the electronic computer controlled systems, the Panamera 4 features a full compliment of 2-stage airbags for both the front and rear passengers. With the rear seats up the Panamera has a luggage compartment with over 15 cubic feet of storage space. But with he seats down the hatchback design allows for over 44 cubic feet of cargo room which is a large amount for this segment. And believe it or not the 2012 Porsche Panamera can tow up to 4850 lbs. The Panamera is a very efficient and powerful sports car that offers a high level of luxury and sophistication while being able to transport 4 passengers in style.

2017 Porsche Panamera 550hp - Perfect Sedan
The 2017 Porsche Panamera Gives You 550HP, Lots of Tech and Better Looks The second-generation Panamera turbo packs a new chassis, active suspension, 550 horses and a fresh interior for $146,000​, while the ​440hp 4S will be yours for $99,990​. It seems like pretty much everything we wished to be true about the 2017 Porsche Panamera will be granted, as Porsche's new four-door is faster, better looking and way more cutting edge than the current model. Long live mid-mounted analog tachometers in luxury barges! 2017 Porsche Panamera turbo For a cool $146,000, Porsche gives you a 4.0 with a pair of centrally positioned turbos, direct injection and cylinder-deactivation, which in effect turns it into a four-cylinder. At full beans, the new engine produces 550 hp at 5750 rpm and 567 lb-ft between 1960 and 4500 rpm. The eight-speed PDK gearbox, the all-wheel drive and the three-chamber air suspension system are standard, while for what I must assume to be quite a lot of extra dough, you can order yours with Porsche's 4D suspension system, which integrates all aspects of vehicle dynamics together. You can also opt for electric anti-roll control front and rear (I'm guessing powered by a 48V subsystem), rear axle steering just like on a GT3 and GT3 RS, Night Vision Assistant, which is an infra-red system highlighting pedestrians and animals in the dash display, and adaptive cruse control combined with navigation data that allows the Panamera to adjust speed not only for vehicles in front, but in relation to terrain. The 2017 Panamera turbo weighs 4398 lbs—otherwise known as 2 tons—and will get to 62mph in 3.6 seconds, or 3.4 with the Sport Chrono package. It's also, Porsche claims, the world's fastest 4-door around the Nurburgring, as the automaker hinted last week. 2017 Porsche Panamera 4S The 2.9 twin-turbo V6 also has its turbos between the cylinder banks for higher thermal efficiency, producing 440 horsepower at 5650 rpm, and 405 lb-ft between 1750 and 5500 rpm. All-wheel drive, electro mechanical steering and the PDK gearbox are standard for $99,990, but the air suspension and the rest of the new tech is optional on this model. The base car weighs 4123 pounds, and will jump to 62mph in 4.2/4.0s depending on the Sport Chrono situation. Inside all new Panameras, you get a 12.3 inch touchscreen with a combination of capacitive touch controls and physical switches in the center console. Behind the flawlessly wrapped steering wheel, you'll find dual seven-inch screens divided by an analog tachometer in the middle. Oh yeah. 2017 Porsche Panamera Diesel and Hybrid Yes, there is one. No, it isn't coming to the U.S. It makes 420 horsepower. There will also be two hybrid versions, though we haven't heard details on those just yet. Sales start today, while tonight, we'll have a chat with the people behind the car. Stay tuned for more.
