Porsche’s 4 door Panamera is the ultimate sedan

The second familiarity is the fact that Porsches are typically 2 door cars and with the fact that they have recently launched their 4 door Panamera, it gives you that feeling that the Italian car maker might just be moving with the times. This, to a large extent can be confusing, and while a four-door Porsche is not entirely new (think Cayenne), it is somewhat unusual. Having said that, you cannot but admit that by the looks of the Panamera, it still maintains its usual DNA, which means, this Porsche still looks very much a Porsche.

This car sits 4 passengers comfortably, each having their own bucket seats and where space is concerned, it will be the least that you have to worry about. The Panamera is an option you can consider if you are considering the Mercedes Benz S-Class or the BMW 7 Series as you can be sure that this design will last through the test of time. Essentially, this car looks like an extended 911, with more power and the size of a sedan. The engine is mooted in the front and the back is essentially a boot space.

The engine if you really must know is similar which is fitted into the Cayenne and the Panamera is totally generous with power, performance and acceleration. To begin with, the 400 horspowered 4.8 liter V8 engine is crazily fast enough but if you want more, then you can opt for the turbo-charged version which gets you through on 500 horses. You also can choose between the 6-speed manual transmission gearbox or the 7 speed automatic transmission using the PDK Porsche Doppelkupplungsgetriebe, which in German basically means a dual clutch gear system. This will get you to a top speed of 283km/h while the manual version gets you up to 285. Acceleration wise, well… it gets you from zero to hundred in around 5 seconds depending on which version you are driving but if you are in the Turbo version, it is in 4.2 seconds and gets up to 303km/h max. Think about that!
