The Review

Dealer Reviews Four-Door Coupes Porsche Panamera Panamera (G1 II) - (2013) Turbo 4.8 V8 (520 Hp) 4x4 PDK

One of the best 4 door performance cars on the market


Summary

At the risk of sounding like a bit of a Porsche flag waver, this car earned its spot as one of the very best 4 door performance cars on the market right now... maybe EVER! (Yes I know some people are gonna come at me for that one). But to all of you I just ask you to sit in the drivers seat, which was in the best position a seat could be in relation to its steering wheel, controls, pedals and everything else... and drive! :) This car was amazing to drive, with equally amazing space and seats to match. Plenty of room all around.

Performance and Handling

On the move, performance was spot on what you would expect from a Porsche Turbo. Very fast and very composed in all situations. This is definitely the car I would (and probably will) pick if I do another road trip across Europe! I will put everything on the line here and say that this car is better than the M5, E63 AMG and S63 AMG! Don't get me wrong, they are all great cars and I would happily recommend any one of them, but this Panamera Turbo just felt a little, had a little more edge and was a MASSIVE improvement over the original Panamera...Almost to the point where it feels like Porsche discontinued the Panarema and made a new and improved car.

Would I recommend it? YES

You will not hear me say this often, but if you are looking for the very best in 4 door super cars, this should definitely be on your test drive list!

I remember sitting in this car in the showroom a while back and I was massively impressed!
