The two new long-wheelbase models gain 6 inches of seat room for those who don’t want to drive powerful hatchback sedan while a new plug-in hybrid a first for the carmaker — with a larger battery the old, non-plug-in hybrid and can under silent electric for up to 22 miles, maybe more if you off the throttle. Which you won’t be to do.

The rest of the the Panameras get a little horsepower and lightly freshened

The world seems to have the unique proportions of this now 4years old and with more 100,000 sold worldwide. it or hate it on the outside, the Panamera is and comfortable on the inside and fast any way you look at it.

What’s It Like To

We drove four Panameras a short intro program in and liked the Panamera S and its all-new 3.0-liter V6 twin turbo So sue us. The S is within 20 hp of the V8-powered GTS and felt about as strong when upon. You’ll only the miniscule turbo lag if you drive it against its eight-cylinder sibling.

the V6 twin-turbo feels light and from the driver’s seat and much equal in power and to the V8. The carryover hydraulic steering just right from all the way out to lock. The throttle is delightfully something of a rarity in modern of any make.

Wind, road and engine were minimal. Porsche 0-60 at 4.6 seconds with the Chrono package and top speed at mph (only the Germans would add a .3 to 178 For our part, we can say that the car felt stable at speeds up to 130 mph, was as fast as we got before running out of

The big Panamera Turbo Executive we drove next had a noticeably and far more rumbly exhaust, noticeably more torque low and more power up high with 520 peak turbocharged at 6000 rpm. Curb of the Turbo Executive (which be the name of a comic book can be over 500 pounds more the V8 GTS and over 700 pounds heavier a V6 S, so that tends to equalize of the performance between the models like a weight penalty in a car. While the V8 turbo 520 hp to the normally aspirated V8’s 440 and the V6s 420, it has more curb to haul around.

Nonetheless 0-60 comes up in 3.8 seconds for the Turbo Executive, for something this big and heavy pounds).The exhaust can be set for more or burble, to suit your The longer wheelbase gave it a bit of a nose-heavy feel in twisting two-lanes but all was forgiven when throttle-stomp on the straights roared the to life and shot it down the This is the biggest and most Panamera you can buy — at $162,075, so will buy it just for that. We sat in the to experience all that leg room and to the driver around a little.

It fine. but we’d rather

Next up was the e-Hybrid, which was charged when we took the Turn the key and no noise emanates beneath the hood. Just the eight-speed Tiptronic into (it’s the only Panamera does not have a PDK), onto the accelerator and creep out of the parking lot or driveway without up the neighbor’s cat. The hybrid from a relatively small NiMH battery last to a larger and more efficient lithium-ion pack that can be in and charged from a wall or charged by the 333-hp V6 for an electric-only of up to 22 miles.

The EPA mileage figures will out closer to the e-hybrid’s November launch, but on a short drive — on which we sort of to pay attention to mileage — we got 47 mpg which isn’t bad. we weren’t trying at all and in fact having fun, we got 28.7

Last up was the Panamera GTS with its V8 driving the all four wheels. The GTS a lower, stiffer suspension; if looking for performance, you’ll it here. Only the Turbo at 520 hp, can outrun the GTS.

Zero-to-60 comes up in 4.2 seconds, to Porsche, and top speed is 179 mph.
