And, according to the media outlet, the Panamera provides powertrains to captivate every level of your need for speed, including a relatively fuel-efficient plug-in hybrid.
The Panamera also boasts impressive passenger and cargo space, offering you plenty of legroom in its refined interior and more features than most luxury sports cars, the online magazine wrote.
US News says you should buy the Panamera if you want a super luxury car that prioritizes thrilling driving dynamics while also giving you everyday comfort and utility.
“An outlier in lots of ways, the Porsche Panamera is not only a sports sedan in a class full of (near) limousines, it also offers the widest range of configuration and personalization choices of any car on this list.
“The standard Panamera sedan is the smallest car on this list, but Porsche also offers a long-wheelbase version that offers a much larger backseat for luxury-minded buyers. On top of that, it also builds the Panamera Sport Turismo, which is a hatchback-like station wagon with a much more useful cargo area and even more pleasing styling.”
And the Panamera delivers where it matters most: Performance, according to the article that accompanied its ranking in the top five cars for 2023.
And you have plenty of choices when it comes to performance. The Panamera V6 models can deliver 335 hp or 443 hp, rear or all-wheel drive, and various stages of tune, the magazine notes.
“Then there are two V8s of 473 and 620 horsepower. Not enough? Well, at the top are the E-hybrid V6 (455 hp) and E-Hybrid V8 (690 hp), with that last one capable of reaching 60 mph in a scorching 2.9 seconds. These are super-sedans, and they drive and look like slinky sports cars that just happen to have four doors and luxury interiors.”
We already know that the Porsche Panamera is a comfortable sports car for four with great handling and impressive performance.
It’s a four-seater sedan with the dynamism of a Porsche because it is a Porsche.
And for 2024 it comes with center-lock wheels, the same wheels offered on Porsche’s GT cars, as well as on the 911 GTS and other versions of the 911.
