2010 Porsche Panamera
The new 2010 Porsche Panamera is the first 4-door luxury sedan offered by Porsche. The Panamera is a front engined and rear wheel drive sports car sedan. The Porsche Panamera will have three models using three different engine choices, the Panamera S using a 4.8-liter V-8 with 400 horsepower, the all-wheel-drive Panamera 4S using a 4.8-liter V-8 with 405 horsepower and the all-wheel-drive Panamera turbo features a turbocharged 4.8-liter V-8 with 500 horsepower.
Pricing for the 2010 Porsche Panamera will be $89,800 for the Panamera S, $93,800 for the all-wheel-drive Panamera 4S and $132,600 for the Panamera turbo.
The four-door Panamera features a wide variety of goodies seemingly contradictory at first sight, and offering a unique synthesis quite unparalleled in the premium segment: The Panamera comes with all the sporting and dynamic characteristics of a genuine Porsche combined with a very high standard of motoring comfort. Despite its extra-low and sleek coupé silhouette, in turn, the Panamera offers more than ample space and roominess inside for four passengers and variable loading space for a substantial amount of luggage. And last but not least, the Panamera proudly boasts power units offering a high standard of fuel efficiency despite the car's outstanding performance.
The V-6 and V-8 normal aspirated versions of the Panamera come as standard with rear-wheel drive. The top model in the range with its turbocharged power unit, in turn, features PTM (Porsche Traction Management) with extra-light, active all-wheel drive. PTM is also available on the other models.
As an option the Panamera Gran Turismo will be available with Porsche's Sports Chrono Package giving the car even more sporting and dynamic engine and gearshift characteristics and enhancing the dynamic performance of the Panamera to an even higher level of perfection.
The Porsche Panamera will be produced at Porsche's Leipzip Plant
