The Panamera is likely the greatest departure from the standard Porsche formula to day. After a surprising success with the Cayenne, Porsche decided to get even more ambitious with what could be a Porsche. Now we have the Panamera, a four door hatchback sedan. It has already proved itself a huge success regardless of the fact that many in the automotive industry berated the Wizards of Stuttgart when it was announced. They knew what they were doing, it would seem, as the draw of a Porsche sports machine that could seat four in comfort has made it the fastest selling model at Porsche dealers. Its styling alone remains a possible deal breaker for some. While it offers all the performance one would expect from a Porsche, the exterior lacks some of the seductive lines that are commonly attributed to Porsche's. Performance is something that the Panamera does have, and has plenty of it. The front mounted engine is a 4.8 liter V-8 available either in naturally aspirated or twin turbocharged formats. The turbo is good for 500 HP. These engines are both mated to Porsches now famous 7 speed PDK transmission. Power can be sent to the ground via either rear wheel or all wheel drive.
