The Panamera is a luxury sedan designed for ultimate comfort and riding with style. The 4-door sedan can seat up to four or five people. It can also fit your stuff with 17.4 cubic feet of cargo at the back. It has great front seat ventilation and even comes with a 4-zone climate control.
There are two options for body styles in Panamera models. You can go for either wagon or hatchback. The hatchback style offers more leg room. The interiors prove to be a hit as well! On the inside, the Panamera’s dashboard houses a console with touch switches. In front of the driver lies a pair of 7-inch screens. And that’s not all! In the center is placed a 12.3-inch screen.

No single car can fit every single taste and the Panamera is no exemption. There are certain things to consider before going for this luxury sports car.
First, it isn’t ideal for big families. Sure it can fit five people, but the ideal passenger of this sedan is only four. Meaning, pushing it up to five people will compromise some comfort. Second, the Sport Turismo body style only allowed minimal gains in its cargo space.
After its debut in 2009, Porsche has already produced several models of the Panamera. One of the notable models is the Porsche Panamera S Hybrid which was introduced in 2011. It uses a 3-liter V6 engine along with an electric motor of 47 PS.
The Porsche Panamera Turbo S was first introduced in 2014. It was a gasoline-only model and had a 4.8-liter V8 twin turbo engine. It can go a maximum speed of 190 mph.
