Porsche Panamera Overview

If you *need* to take a sedan on a you don’t much care it looks like—there’s no better than the Panamera. And now there’s a GTS as well. Porsche presents it as the expression of a sports sedan, and I cringe at any offering in that bereft of a 3-pedal manual and drive, testers are reporting the GTS is a hell of a good car to drive.

Of that’s expected when you a car by cherry-picking the best elements the rest of your lineup. for an acronym attack: Porsche Composite Brakes (PCCB)? Got it. Dynamic Chassis Control Torque Vectoring Plus Yup.

Porsche Active Suspension (PASM)? Here too. And not forget everyone’s favorite Doppelkuppleungsgetriebe (PDK) dual-clutch

What Porsche has done is the formidable Panamera 4S and chucked letter combination in its war chest at it to a whole new beast. Porsche already know GTS means it may not be the in the stable, but it’s probably the to drive. What does mean for the Panamera?

It means all the above plus a 0.4-inch in ride height thanks to an air suspension, which when put the Sport Chrono Pack’s mode will set the ride a full 1.4 inches lower the 4S. Track is 10mm wider and back as well thanks to new spacers, and a long list of changes include a new front satin black trim and the rear spoiler from its brethren.

But no turbo? Natural aspiration is here, so you don’t get the 500/550 hp of the S, but the 4.8-liter V8 did get some attention. includes a revised dual-snorkel and the cams and stiffer valve from the Turbo as well as tuning to take advantage of the new

All this means 30 extra galloping under the hood and 15 lb-ft of torque trying best to tear the Panamera in two. Redline is raised to rpm with peak hp coming in 200 than in the non-massaged 4.8 at 6,700.

With all lights flashing and screwed down tightly, means a reported 4.3-second to 60 and a top speed of 178 mph. At 4,200-plus that’s one quick pig.

But changes bring out some characteristics in the Panamera, some not previously. With the suspension and stiffened and fitted with wheels, testers have cowl shake and shudder the steering column—common features of with a hatchback profile, but not a concern with the Panamera of posts. Looks like could be a limit of the current and apparently a 2-ton car that can 1+ Gs needs a bit of bracing.

The problems of past are still here, and the steering does its best of an uninterested lover, providing you no feedback. Not the best characteristic for the expression of a sports sedan, but at it can handle. With its wide and rear-biased AWD supplemented by the best in electrical nannying, the GTS can move agility well beyond its

As for the other ubiquitous ulcer the Panamera, it is still ugly. The new that the rest of the line is looks great, but I still get in that midsection, where the car can’t decide what it to be.

But here Porsche has added quirk, and it’s sure to be The exhaust can be “turned up.” is literally a button on the dash opens valves in the exhaust to backpressure and subsequently make it a bit louder. If you place all the controls of the Chrono Pack in Sport+ it happens automatically, but if you just to sound a bit faster, you can do that,

Porsche has even installed tubes here and in the 911 that engine intake noise the cabin via the A pillars. They it the Sound Symposer. I think would do just fine.

the testers are unified in their the Panamera is a great car to drive. But quirks are big negatives in the sports car a niche filled with who generally go for attractive, RWD cars a 3-pedal manual transmission. But the Panamera has been partially with Porsche’s record sales.

Apparently, I wouldn’t know the expression of a sports sedan if I saw it.
